Christian Co. 53 Henderson Co. 51


Recommended Posts

I didn't see the SK/Christian Co matchup in the AIT but I do know they beat us by 20, and they have been on a roll. I just think come S16 time the team with the best player goest farther, and I just can't believe that CC has a better player than AJ Slaughter. Shelby by 10.

Kerry Stovall continues to show why he is one of the best coaches in the state. Henderson's Phil Gibson is pretty high up there also. There were no preseason expectations for this Henderson team. They have lost in the region finals now four times in five years.

Henderson's last second shot from about 5 feet was blocked by Christian County. The last 2 minutes of the game was very entertaining. Christian's athleticism and depth will make them hard to handle but they do lack size in the paint. Could be their down-fall in Rupp!

Christian Co. lacks the heigth of Shelby but probably is quicker with more athleticsm. Christian Co. has 2 guys 6'4 in Michael Warren and Antoine Ray other then them they don't have size.

 

Christian Co. arguably has the best 6th man in the region in 6'2 California transfer C.J. Trotter and he can jump out of the gym. He is a good looking athlete with quickness and a descent outside shot. They have good depth and can play 10 kids BUT if you breakdown their depth in certain games Kerry Stovall only rotated in 7-8 players. Against Henderson he only played 8 kids and most say that was because of foul trouble. The same thing against UHA twice this year also.

 

Christian Co.:

 

PG/ Montreal Dillard 6'1 senior--Not a scorer and doesn't look to score. Can get to the basket but does a good job at running the team.

 

G/ Walter McCombs 5'10 senior--Descent outside shooter but inconsistent another athlete. Can score in bunches.

 

G/ Jamaizz Baker 5'9 Junior--Simular type player to McCombs. So much so that one of the Christian Co. assistant coaches says they have twin games.

 

F/G Keith Tandy 6'0 Junior---Great athlete and their go to man if they have one. Likes to play down low and use his quickness and athleticsm. Outside he likes to use his quickness to get to the basket. Not a bad outside shooter.

 

C/ Michael Warren 6'4 Junior---Just a junk man. Plays hard and is asked to rebound and play defense.

 

Off the bench:

 

PG Desmond Daniel 5'11 senior--Not a scorer teams give him the outside shot.

 

F/G C.J Trotter 6'2 Junior--Good athlete capable of beating you from the outside and when you play up on him can drive past.

 

F/C Antoine Ray 6'4 Junior---Simular player to Warren they don't ask either to score just play defense and rebound.

 

Cortez Ivory 6'1 Junior & Mike Dillard 6'1 Junior are 2 other athletes Coach Stovall can go to but down the stretch their playing time has dimenished.

 

Christian Co. loves to play that chaotic style of defense. You pick up your dribble they jump into a double team anywhere on the court. They feel like you might hit them for a few layups off their press but they think they will force you into too many turnovers and get easy buckets for them.

 

Offensively one coach says if your playing Christian Co. you hope they hit their first 3-point attempt because then they think their on fire all night no matter how many they miss. They are streaky from the free throw line.

They will have a tough time trying to trap Shelby's guards. Their point is jet quick and then there is Slaughter. Should be a good game but Shelby's size and a one AJ Slaughter will probably lead them to victory.

Gibson said on the postgame that he is going to think about returnning next year, but he's not sure.

Did'nt his son play for him a couple of years ago and went off to play college somewhere? I think his name was Russ and. if so, how is his college playing coming along?
