St. Pat and Mason usually have an agreement to play in the first round of the Murph Classic.

 

Usually being the operative word.

Makes sense.

 

In re-reading my postings here I might come off as being sour grapes to St. Pat, who hasn't had much recent success with us in awhile, for dropping us.

 

Being an old-timer and having great relationships with Lex Turner and the Saints during his era, it just feels strange not having them on the schedule. Perhaps if the shoe were on the other foot, and they were the (perceived) bigger, more advanced program, I too might want to look elsewhere, regardless of any history my school might have with them.

Well whats really nice about the SAINTS is that they have been in the weight room and have dedicated their summer to Coach Taylor and his philosophy...... True they lose 5 seniors but they lose uncommitted seniors. Addition by Subtraction. This team will get better simply because they had poor senior leadership this past year..... Coach Taylor and his staff have impeccable experience and basketball knowledge and those older guys were way too used to the old system...... I would be willing to bet that with their Solid big man (Sticklen) and much improved and invested PG (Bauer) they will be a tough wrangle. Plus Freshman Swolsky has grown to 6'4" and lets not forget the Burton kid who averaged 18 ppg over 4 games before becoming ill. He lost weight and step and never fully recovered during the latter part of the season. Bailey Jodrey was rumored out for the majority of the summer while they went on a tear. Heard They have 3 transfers adding depth and bounce. I look for Taylor and crew to run platoon style defense and offense 5 on 5 off every 4 minutes or so with Bauer and Sticklen. They can go big, small, quick, defense based and if they figure out their shooting woes....... watch out. They have 2 lock down defenders on their ball club in McCall and Jodrey that would run through a wall for Coach Taylor. look for Bauer to really distribute the ball for about 8 apg and 10 ppg and 2 T/Opg. If they nail another ball handler down they will be a top 7 maybe 6 region competitor....

 

Starters rumored:

PG Bauer - projected avg - 10ppg

SG Burton - projected avg - 12 ppg

SF McCall - projected avg - 10 ppg

SF Jodrey - projected avg - 10 ppg

F/C Sticklen - projected avg - 22 ppg

 

Reserves

Transfer 1 - ?

Transfer 2 - ?

Transfer 3 - ?

6'4" Swolsky - projected as MUST watch freshman - 8 ppg

6'0" Thompson - Chips in 4 ppg

5'8" Cress - chips in 2 ppg

 

 

As a parent of one of the seniors you are talking about, I am appalled at your comments. You have no clue as to what you are talking about and remember these are kids not NBA players who make millions. Get a life and talk positive about these kids. Coach Taylor expected a lot from them. They did a lot for the team last year and they will be missed. They had leadership skills and were committed to the program. So you owe every senior on that team from last year an apology.

Who is this lock down defender you speak of?

There are really 2 lock down defenders. They are extremely quick and cause a lot of turnovers.

That's good to hear, hopefully we will see a lot more man to man this year.

Impeccable experience and basketball knowledge? Is that what that was last year in the tourney when this great staff did not know that the clock doesn't stop after a made basket?

Did the names of the transfers ever surface, are they cleared by the KHSAA to play? The season is drawing near just trying to familiarize myself with the rosters of the teams. Although we are not on the schedule for the saints the only time we would meet would be the second round of the All A if both teams make it to the second round and possibily the district tournament depending on the draw. Im with Mustang kinds weird not seeing them on the schedule this season.
