    I have no idea on this one other than I think it would be competitive.

    Anyone?

    Agreed. I don't think this standard applies - "well, college players are men and are more developed than high school players".

    Nope, not at the D3 level.

    CCH doesn't beat a good D3 team.

    I would say Thomas More. The speed, strength, and conditioning at any college level, regardless of division, is greater then the high school level.

    I think there's some validity with that.

    If I had to guess, I would go with Thomas More.

    This is certainly not an apples to apples comparison, but I remember Oak Hill Academy beating Alice Lloyd years back.

    TMC couldn't guard Jake Walter or Fredrick! Ruthsatz is also a D-2 player who is more talented than the TMC D-3 players. I say CovCath would win 73-63!

    The first place my mind goes to is "How many Cov Cath players would walk right into a Thomas More Practice and be in the first group (top 5-7)?" Maybe 3 at most?

    Also, considered "Would Cov Cath's entire rotation make Thomas More's team?" I wouldn't think so.

    Very interesting topic for discussion, but I am going to go with Thomas More.

    I do think it would be competitive though.

    Here is my question from this thread and the CC v UConn. Everyone keeps saying who is guarding Jake? He averaged 11 points a game this year and their was nobody his size in the entire region? I’m not knocking Jake and look forward to seeing him @ XU. I guess my question is would CC completely change their offensive scheme from outside in (Guards first) to inside out ( Center first) option?

    Plenty of D-3 players could do a decent job guarding Walter. He didn't dominate in high school. Frederick would be a more difficult task but there are some very good athletes in D3 that could do at least as good of a job as in high school. The point guard would be a wash. The rest of the team I would give a slight edge to TMC.
