I would considering Ashland handled them by 9 earlier and this is the first time that Elliott has ever beat Ashland.

 

 

I believe that despite the earlier loss to the Tomcats, that the Lions have the better team this year.

With all due respect to Coach Flynn, and I very much appriciate all of his services and time put in at Ashland, I do believe it may be right to start considering that Ashland and Coach Flynn go their seperate ways. Ashland's talent level isn't the same as it once was, and I think Coach Flynn is more accustomed to working with great talent and coaching them to win. He is better off at a Lexington Catholic or Scott Co., where he has a wide talent pool to insert players effectively into his system. What I think Ashland needs now, is someone who can groom players and work to get the absolute best out of them. That is what Morgan Co., Elliott Co., Fairview, and the other teams in the region have done. They get the best they can out of the talent they have. There is no doubt in my mind that Ashland can not say they did the best they could this year with the talent they had. It's time to get a coach who can win with a system revolving around what his players bring to the table, not one where they are haphazardly thrown into a designed scheme. Maybe we need more of a motivator and less of a strict basketball disciplinarian. Just my opinions, take them for what you will. Mike Flynn is a great basketball coach, and his record proves that. But the kids that accumulated that record aren't around today. I don't think he is the type of coach who can win with what he has, he has to have great talent, and I don't think Flynn can win anymore at Ashland. It's time to move on.

 

Really, what I am trying to say is: Does Leon Hart know anything about basketball?

I agree. I think iv'e already expressed my viewpoints on Flynn in the "Ashland Basketball" thread.

This season was a huge failure. We had 4 starters and 5 of our top 6 returning this year as well as newcomer Brandon Williams from a team that went to the regional semi-finals last year and we follow up with a losing season and a loss in the first round of the regional tournament.
