    By now everyone is well aware that the big news of this past week is about the games that were not played rather than the results of those that were played. The LIT is supposed to crown the mythical City Champ at the halfway point of the season but this year we just have to wait a bit longer as the weekend snow and ice postponed the Final Four to next Saturday where it is moved to Manual to be completed. We did gain some insight as two rounds...

    Yes, for those that have watched Luke for any period of time, he is a great competitor who is very good at controlling a game. I was not surprised at all, but I do think he is underrated if you have not seen him play. He can flat out play. Fern Creek has a good defense and rotate a lot of people, but nobody could slow him down that night. I was looking forward to him and Wales for Fern Creek going at it all game as they are two of the best...

    Why they would not reschedule for next weekend with the same schedule instead of just canceling it surprises me. Trinity plays at Moore next Saturday, but everyone else is open. Moore would take some gate percentage and be happy not to face Trinity. Line them up another opponent and let them play before the LIT games if they want another game. The girls LIT does not start for another two weeks so Valley should be open next week. That is at...

    I hear what you are saying, but it is not optional for the players, many of them who drive or ride with other players to the school where they ride a bus to Valley. Odds are nobody would be involved in an accident, but in the event they were the AD who made the call would face all sort of trouble, including guilt if someone were seriously injured. So despite the kids wanting to assume the risk, as silo 11 said it is not easy to make the call....

    The JCPS AD said it is the concern of secondary roads. It may sound lame, but the money loss would not make them cancel unless there is a valid concern. People live on secondary roads and if a fan, coach, or player were to have had an accident traveling to the game it would have been a regret not to cancel. They errored if you want to call it that on the side of caution.

    And the KOB champs, so not wanting Trinity to win it again does not make much sense. In fact, this is a decision only about the concern of people related to the weather. The LIT is a money maker for JCPS Athletics and all the schools who play. They split the gate if they are playing in the session and if anything is accurate, nobody walks away from funding for their programs. Having Trinity play in a session is a good thing because of the...

    Was the head coach on the bench wearing a stocking cap? Talk about two odd looking images on the same clip. At least the referee was not intending to have it happen. I am not a fan of a coach wearing any kind of hat unless there is some reason to do so.

    I hope he doesn't have anyone pressuring him to play when he is not 100%. There are times kids need to tough it out and then there are times when rest to get over an injury is the right thing for a young man's future. Playing injured and less than your best as you are attempting to land a D1 offer can work against you. Getting healthy and coming back for a Post grad year could very well be the best approach for his future. Best of luck to...

    Fern Creek has 3 from the 2021 class that play in the rotation of a team that has been in the top 5 most of the year and one recently cracked the starting lineup, Jaden Rogers. Rogers is an excellent PG that is very poised for a freshman playing in the 6th region. Devin Franklin is another 2021 guard who is a strong body who can score on all three levels, and the one with perhaps the most upside is 2021 post player, 6'6" Darius Washington. If...

    The only controversy (if that is what you want to define it as) would be after the game had ended Bullitt East Coach (Jason Couch) was yelling at the ref who blew the whistle on a traveling violation before the final shot attempt to tie the score. The player was in the motion of shooting and the shot did not go in so the game would have ended had not a whistle was blown. Perhaps the Coach wanted a foul in lieu of a traveling call. But that...

    It just seems so many teams are facing illness and injuries around this time of the season. It is really a common thing right now to see people out.

    Yes, it seems like since the KOB they have not got back in gear. Last Friday was a bad outing against Manual with a 2 point victory. 1st round in the LIT against Southern was better, but not great. Tonight was just a grind, several factors including...... >Bullitt East's Luke Ezell was outstanding with 31 points >Ahmad Price for Fern Creek wore 3 different jerseys #s due to his own blood loss from two different injuries. Once from a hit...

    I hear that, but this high rated ref would somehow get the attention of the team who has 6 players and tell them to remove the extra player before putting the ball in play? Why have the rule?

    Colonel Pops, not trying to be a know it all and we each can have different thoughts on this and be right in our own mind. My theory would still be true because they can't blow the whistle after they hand over the ball. By rule the clock and violation would not occur until the ball is thrown in and touched by a player from either team, not when the ref hands it over to be thrown in. The clock starts after being touched on the throw in. That...

    The exception is if they see a kid running to get off the court and they decide to put the ball in play just to blow the whistle. That would be on the refs. But they should not give a heads up the team has too many players or sit around and wait until it is recognized. What was the case with Cooper? Was a kid trying to hustle off and they put it in play just to assess the technical?

    I disagree, but more on principal than what really happens. If the refs are counting, it is not to remind any team they have too many players. I would expect them to count so if as the ball is put in play and one team has 6 players they make the right call to assess a technical. To me, that is all on the coaching staff and players. The refs should take no blame unless they fail to make the appropriate call of too many players on the court. ...

    That is one heck of a payload for a team to deliver. Wow, that will be a hard trifecta for anyone to ever repeat.

    This past week was just supposed to be a tune up week for many teams with predictable outcomes. The players had to adjust being back in school after playing their most recent games during the Holiday break. However, there were several fireworks that went off resulting with a few surprises. This past week has further opened up what already was a pretty wide open race in the 6th. 1. Fern Creek (12-3): For one week in December (16th-23rd)...

    Yes, but I also see what Colonel Pops is saying to about NCC never having a roster that went really deep with players. At a smaller school you may just end up having a smaller bench with a small rotation which it sounds like this year. The thing most can agree on is that within the rotation you do play there is a lack of players like McDonald & Weyer. Nobody on that roster looks or plays like them, they were big difference makers with their...

    When you lose a Ben Weyer and Drew McDonald who roamed those halls between the two of them for quite a while, they are very hard to replace. They each are having outstanding college careers and were guys who both scored, rebounded, and defended well. They were different players obviously, but they were dominant players and for awhile they played together.
