    Practice originally set for noon Wed was moved to 5pm based on weather which obviously got worse. I'm speechless.

    The Birds went 9 deep in today's game. With all 9 playing a fair amount of minutes. The seven role players ate up a ton of minutes and contributed a whopping 14 points.

    With that type of support - Witte and Turner need to go for 25 each in order to compete. Not going to happen.

    I think the tournaments are more about getting kids minutes more than anything, stleast I hope. If they ate playing for the next couple yrs already that would be sad.

    Witte was much more involved in the preseason and opener against St Henry and was a go-to guy. I'd like to see that same intensity and leadership nightly. Turner hadn't played in almost 2 weeks with the head laceration and notching 10 pts and 6 rebounds today was solid.

    Key is Witte, Turner,Houliston carrying the load scoring, True rebounding/blocking shots and the other guys givingslid bench minutes. But equal time for bench players resulting in only 14 points seems a little counterproductive.

    Congrats to the Bobcats - "A" State Champs a couple of years removed.
