Holmes Hayes and Grey played great games, Congrats to Holmes on a big win! Fangman did shoot lights out but sprained ankle in the third quarter and played through it. Though young man but wasn't enough tonight! Best game of the year by all the B W Tigers!

Congrats to the Tigers on a great season they just couldn't pull through at the end. Fangman is a heck of a player and I hope to see him play on the college level. Watching this game gave me hope for next season with all the talent that they will still have.

 

Beechwood is young, but without Fangman this game is ugly tonight.

And so could Trammell and Hatton at Dixie. And so could Hightchew and Geisler at New Cath. And yes so could Hayes and Gray at Holmes. It's not just how the top two players on their respected teams play that's going to determine the winner in this region, it's going to be how good the other starting three play, and probably which team can go three to five deep on their bench.

Hayes and Gray, could lead Holmes to the promise land in Rupp.

But I do agree with you KyDan, Hayes and Gray are the leaders for Holmes.

Where was Holmes defense, 78 points. Doesn't sound like a good effort tonight.
This had nothing to do with Holmes defense! Coach Schmate and the tigers came to play! Chase Maus was on fire to start the game and ended up with 18 points. Fangman was hitting shots with Grey in his face all night! Beechwood played its best game of the year!

Outside of Fangman shooting out of his mind, Holmes' defense was pretty good. Beechwood wanted to get out and run tonight. It actually was a good thing up until about the 5 min mark of the 3rd quarter when Holmes finally settled down and played more fundamentally sound basketball.

 

Fangman made some very tough shots tonight. As stated earlier, kid was lights out regardless of how he was being defended.

Not sure which game you were watching but Fangman wasn't slowed down until Gray was switched to him toward the beginning of the fourth quarter. He had 25 midway through the 3rd with Coston, Palmer, Rice and Hayes all trying to slow him down. Gray was switched to him and immediately got a big steal and lay in at the other end to put Holmes ahead.

Fangman was making all kinds of shots, a little rocker step and fire. Pulling up in transition, and was playing with confidence. #4 was solid in the post as well.

I think once Holmes went man it turned the tide, in the 4th quarter.

I believe Holmes was 12-26 or 13-26 on three pointers tonight.

Got to give Coach Booher a boatload of credit for the job he has down this year. He has taken a team with hardly any varsity experience, especially when Mayfield went down, even though Hayes played some last year, and has survived some attrition on the team, and has pretty much gotten everything out of this group he can.

Give credit to Beechwood, they hung tough, and Coach Shumate and his staff should be congratulated.

Understatement.

 

Looking at Holmes projected roster coming in to this season, they have lost 8 guys.

 

(Mayfield (season ending injury), Peterson (recently moved), K. Rice (kicked off team), McClendon (transferred to HC), Avery (transferred to HC), Stephens (transferred to SK), Pitts (transferred to Boone), Hoskins (quit), Lewis (quit).)

 

Despite all of this, Coach Booher still has his team in a position to get to Rupp and win the 9th region. It's amazing to see guys like BJ Coston, Demarco Amison, and Chris Englemon and see how much they've developed from the beginning of the year to now. All three saw significant minutes tonight.

 

Jaleel Gray never saw the floor last year as a junior and now he is putting up 28 points in the biggest game of the year for both him and his team.

Holmes pipeline of basketball players is like Highlands pipeline of football players. It never seems to end. One quality player after another. Props to Coach Schumate and his players who have elevated Beechwood's program. The Tigers had a legitimate shot to take out the Bulldogs tonight on their home floor.

Beechwood rebounded extremely well in the first half. They had several 2nd chance buckets and held Holmes to one shot. Holmes was trying to jump over them and the Tigers were fundamentally sound in boxing out. I know there are no moral victories, but Beechwood probably could not have played better. They made the 'Dawgs work for this one.
