    If Jake was a surprise to anyone before the tournament then they don't pay a whole lot of attention to begin with or they have blinders on for their specific area

    BG is def the favorite but Jake can make their life miserable. I also don't think everyone is giving credit to the rest of the team. All the kids can play.
    When you have someone of Jakes unique ability, he is going to give you trouble. If he doesn't get into foul trouble then this game could be more entertaining than you think. But to think you can just shut him down is a death blow for any team that believes that

    I don't necessarily agree with this sentiment. It's almost impossible to know about every good player across the entire state.

    In 2011 I watched Christian county with Anthony Hickey pull off the impossible. Eastern high school was better than Christian at every position except point guard. Anything is possible if you have the guard play to control tempo!

    It's been a nice run ... tomorrow Scott could have two Jake Ohmers and they still lose. BG by at least 15.

    I heard Nelson Perrin is playing great defense. Hopefully Ohmer can light it up tomorrow.

    I stand with my statement. If you are unaware, haven't heard of or surprised by a kid averaging 28 pts , 8 rebs and shooting 53% from the field, then you simply aren't paying attention to the state
    If you think it's a kid with embellished numbers, then again, you aren't paying attention
    Now days it's very easy to find what certain kids are doing from around the state with the technology we have at our disposal

    I agree it is easy, but most people are casual fans across the state. I am much more familiar with players in the 8th, 9th, and 10the regions than the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Most people also don't have the time to watch games of every team. Lots of very good players that never even get what Jake is getting and that is an opportunity with a large captive audience.

    Coaches probably know about him and good players but I doubt a 1st region coach studied him at all. Too busy worrying about who they play.

    Best of luck to the Eagles. Hope they pull off the big upset.

    It's one thing to see highlights, stats and read posts about him. Whole other ballgame to see it live in the flesh on the floor of Rupp Arena. I recall the whole state being surprised about Jarrod Polson back in 2009.

    I`m not going to write them off yet. Yes one would tend to think the Purples will roll in this one and they should. But I also know we have all seen stranger things happen in the sweet 16. It`s hard to measure a players heart and Jake Ohmer seems to be on a mission.
