We will find out how good the Christian County Colonels are this week. I'm excited and am trying to get over to see them in MO this week. Hopefully we have a good showing. I'm a bit disappointed that we played in the Webster event as the competition was not very good. I'm not sure what we got out of that event.
With University Heights, their second best player was out for the Paducah tourney. Mississippi State Baseball commit, Drew McGowan. With UHA's lack of depth, missing him was a killer. He is their second best shooter (Tandy is their best) and their best rebounder.
The Blazers and Colonels play a key district game on January 9th. It's almost a must win for the Colonels as Hoptown "could" have Johnson and Nicholas back for their first matchup.
In terms of what is going on with Shorty Cager. Some folks very close to the Hoptown program do not anticipate getting him back this season. Quite a sad story. With Jalen Johnson, there is a worry that he won't be 100% at any point this season.
