lot closer than it should've been.

Walton has a roster full of scary shooters.   When the Bearcats are shooting well, they can knock off a lot of teams with better talent.

(evidence:   Walton-Verona 74, Lyon County 70)

W-V also beat Gallatin - who beat Beechwood - by 21.

Not surprised at all by this score.   Honestly, I thought Walton had a 50-50 chance to win this one.

Still surprised of the spread. To quote your scores, as an example, St Henry beat WV by a score of 73-29. Not even close and Beechwood did beat them earlier in the year. Agree they have some shooters, but Beechwood is a good team. They obviously didn't play their best but still pulled it out.

I don't disagree with you at all, BigRob.

My point was simply to say that I expected a good game, and thought it was a toss-up contest, or maybe 60-40 Beechwood at most.   I simply wasn't surprised at the margin at all.   I've seen both teams.

Although I did quote some scores, my real underlying point is that basketball is all about matchups.   I didn't think this one dramatically favored either team.

Beechwood looked physically tired, after 4 games in 5 days.  I know WV had 3 games in 5 days, but they also had a 3 L run in that span.  One team had a hot shooter and the other couldn’t buy one from outside.  Draud was the difference.  Smithers was non existent in the 2nd half, credit the Tigers D.  He’s a nice player, scored almost at will in the first half.
