    They certainly have the most overall talent but you have to put the girls in the right places and make adjustments when your strengths are taken away. They don't have to depend on their outside shooting if it's off. They have girls who are capable of going to the basket. They may be less strong inside this year after losing the Duncan girl but they certainly are not hurting for being able to rebound the ball. The sophomore Drummonds if she is healthy should be able to fill that loss. I would certainly like to see some stats from the game but it looks like they have not been publicized yet.

    It's probably the strongest district top to bottom in the 9th.

    It's pretty simple. Two good teams played, one of those teams played well, the other didn't. It happens. All that matters is learning, getting better and playing your best come district time. If they do that, then games like this means nothing in the grand scheme of things. Which makes complaints like this in the beginning of December on a game you weren't even there seem even more silly.
    Well said and I agree 100 %

    As you said we all have opinions and you are welcome to yours. I attend most every game as well unfortunately a stay in the hospital kept me away. Sort of sounds like you have an ax to grind with coach..

    Nope no dog in the fight. I just don't think that he has ever gotten the best out of his teams at Conner. It would be a shame if this year's team doesn't win the region as they clearly have the best overall talent of any team in the region and Highlands and Notre Dame are down. They won't stay that way.
