Mar 4, 19, 10:52 AM #3Tremendous breakdown as usual, 15th Region. Your contributions here are greatly appreciated. Good luck to JC against Trinity. It would be a monumental win if they can get it.
Mar 4, 19, 12:09 PM #4I agree that it would be a monumental upset for JC to beat Trinity. I do think JC will play better against them than most think however.
Mar 4, 19, 12:14 PM #5In the last six trips to Rupp Arena for the Golden Eagles, they have drawn the 7th region in the opening round four times.
2006 - JTown
2013 - Ballard
2015 - Ballard
2019 - Trinity
JC has advanced to the Elite 8 twice in school history. You cant help but wonder if JC would have more state tournament wins if not for such difficult draws.
