You might see the regional tourney pulled from the EXPO center as this is the last year on a ten year contract. You might see teams from other regions brought into this region. You might see districts look very different. Change is likely coming.
Was very busy and missed the recap last week, but will make it up with an extended post season preview.
Mason Blair should break the attempts record, but that is not was I was referring to. The made 3FG record is what was highlighted (both season and career).
Cole Crace is an outstanding scoring option and almost unstoppable against man defense. When a packed in zone is in place you need shooting and that's where Blair gets you. It's hard to say which one is the better scoring option as the defense dictates that on a given night. What you can say is both are very good at putting the ball in the basket.
Blair is taking 16 3FG's a game but making almost 6 of those. Using advanced analytics the 10% difference in FG percentage is weighted more toward 3FG as they are worth more points. Think about it. Cole shoots 100 shots and make 60 of them then you get 120 points. Mason shoots 100 3FG and makes 45 of them then you get 135 points. 15% less makes yet 15 more points. Point: One kills you at the rim and one kills you from deep. Johnson Central will need them both doing what they do to win the region as they complement each other. Looking at one as a better option over the other is an incorrect way to approach it as they both score very differently.
