Well you never know which Bulldogs team will show. This team beats very few that the way they played tonight. Come Friday they are just as capable of being unstoppable. Poor shot selection and not making a thing in the first half to poor effort really kept B'wood in the game. The first 4 minute sof teh 2nd half is all they really played. They were the "good' Holmes team. My bet is they will have tons more intensity on Friday, if not, they'll get beat by 20. Maybe this is their clunker for the tourney.

Didn't Holmes struggle with Beechwood last year in the opening round of the district?

 

Got to give credit to Coach Miller and his staff. They couldn't have executed their gameplan any better in the first half. Spread the floor, hit some open shots, pack in their defense and force Holmes to settle for jumpshots.

When Holmes scored they were able to get their press on and that really bothered Beechwood and if it were broken Beechwood took some quick shots relinquishing tempo.

 

Cruse is a nice player and actually the other big for Beechwood is not bad. They played hard and hung around longer than most thought they would.

The Tigers faithful should be proud of their Tigers tonight. They played a heck of a game. You look at this game and the Boone County game a couple weeks ago that they could have won if the open 3 pointer goes in and you have to wonder what the heck happened this year.

 

RJ Estrella came on and had a very nice senior season. Corey Cruse faced some health issues early that caused him to come around slowly, but the last three weeks or so he has averaged 20+ points a game and played great basketball. Cruse would start on any team in the region.

Nice showing for James. AAU will have to wait awhile....

 

He is getting better with each game...the more he plays, the more confidence he gets. Played the best game I've seen him play all year at both ends last night.

 

Can't wait to see him the next 3 years. IMO, he will be the best player in his class when it's all said and done and one of the top players in the state. We will see though. A lot can change over th.e next few years.
