    This will be a great game with Cooper pulling away in the 4th. Cooper 60 - Beechwood 45

    No doubt Sully's guys will be playing outstanding D. The Jags have been struggling offensively as of late. I hope the Jags come out on fire offensively, because no doubt their defensive has been outstanding the entire season. Best of luck & I vote for the Jags to come out with the W.

    Should be a great semi finals game. IMO if Spencer shuts down Draud like he did in the first meeting Cooper should win. But if Beechwood gets Draud going early and he gets the rest of his team involved it could be a long night for the Jags.
    I think Jags win 63-51

    Great insight Glider! I agree with your intel. I also give Beechwood the slight edge because they play with a chip on their shoulder, with people continually doubting them because they are little Beechwood. We aren’t used to this school being good at basketball and as a result we have people like Frederick from Cov Cath yelling at young men because he is mad Draud continues to show him up after questioning his skills. With that said:
    Beechwood- 62
    Cooper - 55

If Cooper can continue to do what they have done all year by playing stifling defense and scoring by committee, then they should come out on top. I am excited for this one and think the winner of this game will go to Rupp next week.

    With that being said...

    Tigers - 54
    Jags - 52

    - CCH would want Cooper to beat Beechwood.

    These teams have bounced back and forth in the 9th region rankings all year!

    I firmly believe any of them can win both Friday and Saturday!

    I am going with Cooper playing CCH in the finals.
    You really think CCH would rather play Cooper? Interesting. Why?

    You appear to have a real issue with that dude, about the 4th post where you go at him.

    Did you read what I wrote? If it is purely based on wins earlier this year ...

    Got ya, don't know him, but the repetitive posts about him just seem very personal. Just an observation.

    I was wondering the same thing. I would think CCH would love to play Beechwood again. Beating CCH twice this year was an outstanding accomplishment for the Tigers. A third encounter might be tempting fate. It is hard to beat a great team 3 times.

    For the same reason, I would think Beechwood would want Newport to beat CCH.

    Regardless, here’s hoping that the Tigers prevail tonight and are lucky enough to have that problem tomorrow.

    Beechwood has sold out of their ticket allotment. I had to go to Covington Catholic to get my pre sale tickets.

    Cooper did also yesterday. Should be a packed game.
