    Did BW do anything to limit Weyer or did NCC just not look to get him more looks?
    Weyer was double teamed every possession. Breds had plenty of good looks, shots just not fallin. Beechwood possessed the ball 3/4 of the game, they executed their game plan almost to perfection. They did not want to get into a running game with the Breds.

    Where was he catching the ball when double-teamed? Post or top of the circle?

    OMG with the St. Henry game cancelled how will they ever decide the coveted NKAC Division II Champ?

    (I know they just count the All-A between St. Henry and NCC as a D II game. I don't care about the Division II championship).

    It was a good game plan on defense. A match up zone against him and they left Pangallo take shots and he didn't convert.

    They are? Based on what? When they beat an "uninspired", .500 Holmes team who benefitted greatly from the loss, a lot of folks seemed to go crazy for this Beechwood team.

    Sorry, I don't see it. What are their nice wins?

    Holmes? Please.

    The schedule is super soft and I just don't see quality wins. They are 13-9 and have lost 4 of last 5. The schedule gets rough with CovCath, Conner, Holy Cross on deck.

    I give the players all the credit for winning any game believing in themselves after the Holmes win, but it doesn't mean I have to believe they are a good team.

    The good news is that they have tough teams in front of them so they can prove naysayers wrong.

    If they somehow make the regional and win a game I will be happy to eat crow.

    I am not a Beechwood fan or parent, but they are a solid HS basketball team. Based on your theory that they need to win 1 game in the region to be a good team means that only 64 teams in the state of Kentucky will be good teams this year. The other 200 teams won't be any good. I just don't understand why when a game is close, everyone always has to immediately say their team played bad. Beechwood plays a slow grind it out kind of style. They are solid on defense and make you execute your offense to score. On offense they are deliberate and work the ball to get the shot they want. They are well coached and probably played a good game against NCC. Just remember these are HS kids not college or NBA players and these are coaches that are getting paid a minimal amount. I will argue again that Beechwood is a good HS team. Not great, but good and they deserve credit for what they have accomplished this year.

    I am not trying to bury Beechwood as a team or their coaches and kids for trying. That was clearly stated in last post.

    However, isn't giving your opinion what this site is all about?

    I am merely reporting my opinion that we should "slow the roll" on touting them as a "good" team when I don't see a "good" win. (Sorry, I just don't count the Holmes win as good. Holmes is 10-10 and was ok to play a zone in that game down 4 late? Hmmmm? interesting).

    I digress. I just don't think BHS is a "good" team as some have suggested. Show me the wins? Just show me the wins? Maybe Ryle? Maybe Holmes?

    And yes, there are a lot of bad teams in the state this year. Sad, but true tale. The state is way down this year. But that will make for a great state tourney.

    Of the 9th region contenders THIS year, what team is better than last years team?
    CCH? NCC? Holmes? Cooper? Last year's edition was better on every team.

    Only Holy Cross is a better team than last year.

    Getting off on a rant here. My main point is that Beechwood has an opportunity to prove me and anyone else wrong with what's upcoming on their schedule. Let's see how they do.

    I wish them well.

    Would you like your crow grilled or baked?

    I prefer my crow properly seasoned with a hint of cracked pepper but that only happens when Beechwood makes the Regional and wins a game. For serendipity sake, I'll eat crow if they simply make the Regional.

    I am aware they just beat Holy Cross and play them again. I like Holy Cross to win that rematch when it counts. (Even though they admittedly are not playing great basketball right now)

    Sorry, IMO, I have seen too many lopsided results not go BW way, so I have to side with HC. I think they get a few more games under their belt with Bezold and get back to early season form, regardless of playing on the road.

    Holy Cross wins the game.

    It was meant as repartee, don't be so serious. HC does have a very good team, no disrespect was meant. I haven't seen any 9th Region games. Good Luck to your team. It looks like a tough district. Play hard and no injuries for these young people. Just in case, be assured, I'm a very good cook.
