The final score doesn't tell how great of a game this was for 29 consecutive minutes!!!! Yes, Ballard won but LC gave them all they could handle for most of the game. Ballard has a deep bench and very well coached to say the least.....LC on the other hand isn't very deep but they are a relentless bunch that never gave up. LC's Martin is an outstanding player and very fun to watch, must have had thirty plus for the night.

Ballard chases 100 points every night. wow

 

I think they are averaging about 89 a game, which has to be near the top of the state. I remember Eastern was around 100 per game in 1997 when they won it all, but this Ballard is team is something else.

Ballard's program is very strong. They are very strong all the way down into the 7th-8th and 9th grades with a Quasi-Feeder system in FOCUS Basketball Academy. Coach Tim Barnett does an outstanding job with these young kids. While the program is open to any or all kids in and out of district, the good ones generally end up at Ballard, Trinity, St. X, Manual and Trinity. Keelan Martin is a product therof as are a number of their Freshmen and Sophomores. Their JV and Freshmen teams are best in Jefferson County (way better than J'Town and Eastern at this point)

Great analysis. The GREAT programs graduate great players every year but somehow always still seem to win -- that's the mark of having a SYSTEM that works rather than just relying on getting great talent every year.

 

And fortunately, the FOOTBALL program at Ballard is another beneficiary having a basketball coach that understands the value of having several of his players get 'seasoning' on the gridiron and not applying the subtle pressure some do in trying to have a team of 15 'gym rats.'

 

To win in the environment they did last night (at LexCath) showed this is a team with not just talent, but mental/physical TOUGHNESS. ...and that they are the product of a larger, well thought-out SYSTEM.
