    They are very sound defensively. Love watching it.

    As do I...coaches dream of kids playing that hard and focussed defensively.

    Uncharacteristic game for Adam with regards to scoring, but he is blessed with a short memory. I think he comes up big today.

    Kunkel has D1 offers and will likely blow up this summer playing with Romeo Langford and Darius Garland on the Adidas Gauntlet circuit.

    Add in kids like Brayden Runion and Chris McNeil who are really good high school players and it is easy to see why Cooper is playing for a state championship.

    Sully is a great coach but he will be the first to tell you he has some really good talent which makes his job easier, but his team's attitude and willingness to do whatever is asked of them is a big reason they are so good. They are a very calm team and don't get rattled easily.
    Wrong on Darius Garland, he is still expected to play on NIKE EYBL St. Louis Eagles 17U team. Rumor was out there, but to my knowledge that is all it ever was.

    The coach who told me about Garland seemed pretty confident when I asked around. We will see I guess. I'm sure you know how these things work and how kids can change their mind literally over night.

    Regardless, playing along side a top 5 player in the country will get Kunkel a lot of high major looks this summer.

    Fern Creek needed to speed this game up. Waited too late to press and trap. Cannot believe they tried to beat Cooper in a half court game. They let Cooper turn it over and over until they got the shot they wanted. Fern Creek should have made this a 90ft game from the start.
