15th Region vs. 7th Region in Sweet 16


Recommended Posts

Maybe this is just wishful thinking on my part. But, does anyone think that tonight's cancellation of the Region 7 championship game between J-Town and Ballard will have an impact on Wednesday's game against Johnson Central in the Sweet 16?

 

I know that both of these teams are loaded...but will having only one day to prepare and only one day of rest between games make a difference?

 

What do you think?

This might help Johnson Central a little, but I dont think it will be enough to affect the overall outcome. I think JTown and Ballard are both much better than Johnson Central, so it shouldnt matter in this game. It might affect the team that comes out of the 7th, if they can advance to play on Saturday, though.

I think it will have somewhat of a positive effect for Johnson Central. Also, I think playing shooting at the Expo Center may help the Golden Eagles as well and playing on the larger floor.

 

If anything, J-town or Ballard will not take Johnson Central seriously. That, more than anything, should help the Golden Eagles.

JC might have a chance if they do not react adversely to when the 7th representative runs an alley-oop or other type dunk on their first offensive set. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a mountain team fold up its tent right after getting dunked on within the first two minutes of the game. Control the tempo, don't committ turnovers and don't be intimidated and anything can happen. But it's easier said than done.

I've seen one instance against Johnson Central in the Hazard Invitational where a kid from Summersville, SC two-handed it off a pro hop BUT the boys from JC reacted perfectly in coming down the floor setting up the offense and nailed a 3-ball

Right, and that was in the Hazard Invit against a team nobody knows anything about. We're talking about Rupp Arena, against the best teams in the state. Completely different animal.

Excellent Point! JC has been very competetive when they are able to control the tempo. We play better when its a slow game and we can set up our offense. If we can keep the score low, under 60, we might have a chance, but we must slow the game down and play the best defense we have ever played. When teams run on us and we try to run with them we tend to get out run.
