    Clos should absolutely be way in the conversation for Miss Basketball! Hanging 29 on SHA @ SHA has to be one of the better performances of the year by any player. Re the top teams in the state, there isn't any doubt it has to be SHA/Mercer/CC in a level by themselves. Their records vs others and with one another bear that out. Would be awesome if it panned out to see some great hi-lite match-ups based on this kind of discussion. Again,...

    That would be a dream of a Final 4 ... whether it is KHSAA or NCAA it just rarely ever pans out that way. Have commented couple other times that VERY few would have guessed Butler to lose last year. Good gosh, they were strong & deep! However, Murray came with a great game plan and maybe played the game of their lives -- know all of those kids won't ever forget that game! SHA is the undisputed #1 team ... but Male will absolutely give them...

    Pretty good job on these. Would say the SK faithful will likely have issue with the Anderson pick. Unless Niece decided to jump in the mix possibly? Haven't heard that she is or isn't but would think if she were she would have been spot playing by this stage of season. These are all pretty solid picks ... but we all know in March some crazy things happen!

    Hilarious Blueto! If there is any poster that has a complex re any/all things CC I think it is most likely the dude you see in the mirror. Why would we need the rest of the week for a "clearer picture" when CC is "right where they need to be"? Keep it closer than 35? Would imagine CC should be FAVORED by 35!?! LOL

    Congrats on the CC win vs Holmes. C'mon Blueto ... right where they (Camels) need to be? This would have been CC's 2nd loss to an UNRANKED team in the last 2 weeks. Kudo's to CC for grinding it out regardless as a W is still a W. Sounds like CC is struggling with every team gunning for them as highly ranked as they are. I would have thought this game would have been (way) over by the 3rd qtr. Right where they need to be? Hmmm ...

    Hard to argue with this top 20 in my opinion. Again, nice job JJ! Looks like CC climbed a tad to the chagrin of Male it would appear. Male is the certainly the real deal and playing great basketball. Mercer was just crazy red hot in that game kind of like SHA was all weekend. Only a few teams I am not too familiar with via South Warren & Scott County. Hear great things about both though. Murray also appears to be back in same great form...

    PTB! Nice comments. Winning every tournament a team plays is certainly an obvious goal. Ultimately, whatever a team can do to prepare for the State Title is undoubtedly the main target as you state. The Mercer coach (and lots of others) sets up a schedule with this in mind. Making a state run is stressful in so many ways and how your team performs under stress is something your kids and staff had better become familiar with. To...

    At risk of taking anything away from the TOTAL performance by SHA -- which is not my intent -- the fact this was Mercer's 4th game in 3 days was certainly some factor in this result. (Had forgotten Mercer played Franklin Thurs before the Butler game Fri). Kinda doubt SHA would have been as smooth had they have played Butler and then Male the prior 2 games. Would SHA have lost? Who knows -- probably not. Would it have been the one sided game...

    Think some may have seen my (frequent) comments on this forum re there was just going to be little way for the Mercer team to bring it after navigating #4 Butler - close game; #5 Male - close game until the 4th qtr ... and then play #2 SHA? Would easily NOT have been a surprise had Mercer lost to either Male or Butler also. Hear the brackets are made up by some formula vs blind draw? Have to say, if so, that is just crazy. How are 3 of the...

    PTB! As mentioned earlier, SHA cruised easily to the championship game. A tad surprised Manual didn't put up more of fight than they did in the semi's? Manual absolutely got smacked -- yikes! Running clock for most of the 4th Qtr. Mercer's game last nite vs Butler was MUCH closer than the score (61-51) indicated. Mercer also had a tough game with Male this morning and pulled away in the 4th qtr winning 66-50. Nice crowd today for...

    EE ... you may not be a Camel fan but to say CC's schedule is tougher than Male's? Please. The CC loss to a team like Highlands is what it is and (easily) trumps the 5 quality losses by Male. Via this weeks BG Preps Poll ... I ain't the only guy that thinks the same.

    LOL The post is in the correct position relative to the response to uplaylikeupractice. Perhaps you should be directing your vitriol toward uplaylikeupractice? Perhaps maybe YOU are lost? My shot missed by missed by a mile? LOL Could it be that a poster touched a nerve? Hmmm. Agreed your post did not state specifically CC was #1 ... but it does align with the Shakespearean thought ... "Methinks thou protests too much." Think about it.

    C'mon C-dad ... not that hard to see the drop to 6th particularly when you bring Male into the conversation. A-L-L 5 losses for Male are to teams either ranked in the TOP 20 in the State of KY or Nationally Ranked via Westlake of Atlanta and Riverdale, Tenn which has been ranked #1 in the country at times ... and Male gave them a ***Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post******Word Filter Violation - Edit Your Post******Word Filter Violation -...

    LOL Apologies Rap -- my post was in response to the one prior from uplaylikeupractice. Apologies also for possibly hurting your feelings re an extremely wayward thought (or left turn?) that CC may not be #1 team in the state at the moment.

    As it stands now re the LIT, hard to think how SHA does not walk away with the title with relative ease. Have commented on this on other threads but SHA's draw is pretty nice. Manual & Nelson is about as tough as it gets for them before the championship game. The other side appears to be pretty brutal --- Butler, Male & Mercer in the same bracket? Whoa! 3 of the top 5 teams in the state on the same side? After that bloodbath the "winner" gets to...

    Sacred Heart lost last nite as well in the Raatz Fence Tourney @ Mercy to Incarnate Word Academy of St Louis, Mo. Think record here shows I have been a pretty big fan of SHA this year but last nite was not their nite -- shots were not falling as they usually do. Doubt this loss affects their ranking though as IWA is a really nice team. Male lost last nite as well to Riverdale, Tenn but no shame in this loss given Riverdale has at various...

    Have posted on this issue before on another thread, I do feel CC winning out through end of the regular season is certainly a possibility ... if it were not for the AWAY game @ SHA in early February. CC is without question having a special season but it will be an etched-in-stone special season ***IF*** they are able to beat SHA @ SHA. ***I WILL BE PULLING FOR THE CAMELS BIG TIME!!*** Unfortunately, I just do not see that happening. In...
