    UHA doesn't play much defense.

    From Chris Jung:

    Xavier University basketball coach Chris Mack having a long conversation with UHA’s KyKy Tandy outside the locker room.

    Heights will go as far as Tandy will take them. They can do well in the Western part of the state, but they just are not disciplined enough on defense nor do they run any type of half-court offense.

    Tandy is a special player. He will be back and maybe Heights will get a better draw next All-A. His next path is to carry his team to state and get to shine at Rupp.

    That's not entirely fair. McGowan and Hollowell are nice players as well as Crump as a freshman.

    They are much improved on defense. In watching the game this morning, their issues on defense were because they overplayed too much and LCA abused them on backdoors and pulled them out for lobs over the top. That's something UHA is much better at this year. LCA was just an awful awful matchup for them. They killed them on the boards. That's where the margin of victory came from. When LCA did miss UHA couldn't get boards.

    This LCA team may completely roll through the entire tournament. With WV losing their big man there isn't anybody with CLOSE to the size they have. LCA is a top 10 team in the state. They're REALLY good.

    By the way. Hats off to "prepspin" for broadcasting games. Very nice to be able to watch.

    LCA just came out and punched UHA in the mouth the first quarter. It was smooth sailing after that.

    That is hyperbole. Lexington Christian is a very nice team, and in a lot of regions they'd be a contender to make it to Rupp, but they aren't close to Top 10 good. In fact, LCA hasn't beaten a single Top 20 team in KY this year -- their best win is over an unranked Mercer County team on a neutral court.

    They very well could win the All "A" -- which would require them beating Top 20 ranked Walton-Verona, and that would be a great accomplishment.

    The good news is they have games left with Lafayette (two in fact), Lexington Catholic, Bryan Station and Trinity -- so their chances to get a big-time win will be plenty. If they can win 2 of those 5 games, that would be a fantastic accomplishment.

    They're good, and they're very well coached, but they aren't "Top 10 good."

    I think they are top 20... Their best player was out the first half of this season. Rode... They've got size and they proved today they have athleticism. They are rated in the top 10 in both computer rankings. I'm not sure why you would say it's hyperbole to say they are top 20.

    They haven't beaten a single ranked team, and among their 6 losses are a couple that aren't great. Again, they get plenty of chances to earn their place in the Top 20 among their remaining games.

    Their best player was out when they played all of the games you are referencing. They stuck with the top teams in the state without him.

    The great news is that they will play a bunch of really good teams over
    The next 4 weeks and will have a chance to prove it.

    Only saw them once this year, but I felt the same.
