At least know the facts before you go talking about something. There are no kids walking the halls at Highlands High School not playing basketball that should be. Most of the seniors played AAU basketball up through and including their frosh year. The difference is that football became their number sport and apparently they must have been good enough at it to compete at the next level.

    Big difference comparing a team of basketball only kids with a team that is comprised mostly of multiple sport athletes.

    The argument about beating Holmes and CovCath is a weak one IMO. They were more than good enough these last few years to not only win the region, but make a nice advancement in the Sweet 16. And as the old saying goes, you got to beat the best at some point in time in order to achieve your goals.
    Not bashing the kids, trying to correct know nothing supporters, like yourself, that can't apply basketball knowledge and actually stated that the T call was the turning point of that game. I cannot waste anymore time with you, "a wise man cannot wither away what a fool believes". Spring football practice is right around the corner so the Bluebird fans can forget about another basketball season. Peace.

    I was at the game and what i seen was two teams not shooting very well. NCC wasnt blowing Highlands out until the 4 they where only up 8 going into the 4th. But at no time during the game did i feel that NCC was in trouble of losing the game. Highlands has alot of athletes very quick and physical but not basketball skilled. NCC has a nice mix of physical athletes and some very skilled basketball players.

    A know nothing supporter, now that right there is funny. No one said the "T" was the turning point in the game. It was referenced that at that time the lead swelled from a manageable 10 point cushion to a much less manageable 17 point cushion. I will be glad to test my knowledge of anything with you and the other two that like your silly post any day any time.

    Pretty good analysis.

    NewCath.....14-13-20-23---70
    Highlands....06-11-15-16---48

    You sure you were at the game. It was 47 to 32 at the end of 3. That's 15 not 8 big difference. I agree at no point did anybody think NewCath was going to lose this game.

    Facts don't matter. "A wise man cannot wither away what a fool believes."

    I believe you said "the call" really created a big momentum change...

    Was you at the game? The box score doesn't display the fact that it was a game the first half? Couple injuries an shots rolling in an out caused for a rough 2nd half period. To say there is no basketball players on that team is a joke! I know a couple who would play at in any school right if they were there.

Glad to see your buddy chime in with a "like" because the soccer boys stick together now don't they?

    If being down 10 is not in the game then maybe you should stick to watching that soccer ball more.
    I don't understand why You bring Weyer going to NCC up for a 4th straight year, maybe not you individually, but it's always brought up. The kid chose the Catholic school. Your point about Weyer being on your team instead of NCC's is irrelevant and a sad attempt to compare the two programs... Smh

    I stand corrected it was in the 3 that it was cut to 8. I forgot you have to have a photographic memory on bluegrass preps.

    Nope, I wasn't at the game, did not need to be to tell that all the details being conveyed were not accurate.

    And I feel pretty stupid for jumping on the train.... I should have learned from the HHS soccer threads.

    So your words mean nothing in this thread! Show up to a game then comments will weigh more.
