    I seem to recall some Anderson County fans being very critical of W-V's schedule and playing in the NCKC on this board in the past. According to my recollections, Anderson squeeked by an NCKC All A school in Owen County in the semifinal and fell to another in W-V, in the finals. Congrats to W-V coaching staff and players, enjoy it. These kind of things don't happen very often. I imagine that both Bearcats will be contending again next season, with the 8th Region Tournament to be held in Anderson County's home floor. Congrats to all the team/schools that participated, and congrats to Gallatin County for being a hospitable host.

    Forgot to mention that arguably, two of the best players in the tournament, McKee(Anderson) and Sandlin (W-V) did not make the All 8th Region team that was anounced a couple of weeks ago. Must of been a strong All Region team.

    Ok........we got a soph who not only led the team during this tourney run in points and rebounds, but also hit back to back game winners two nights in a row and she's not awarded the tourney MVP??? What is going on? How could she not get this award? Someone please explain this to me. Are we basing awards on tenure or talent? Little confused here.

    I have a hard time believing there are 15 players in the region better than McKee or Sandlin.

    Congrats to WV team and coaching staff on a huge win. Walton battled hard and never gave up in both of the games against South Oldham and Anderson. Sandlin made some big plays and over all played a very good tournament. Walton had a lot of different kids step up at critical times. Great job WV! Good luck ay Bowling Green!

    Maybe the few days off after the "A" was a good idea. Anyone know the practice schedule?

    Big Congratulations to a tremendous group of young ladies on & off the court! The base of this group has worked together towards this goal since grade school & as mentioned in an earlier post have had alot of great coaching along the way. Best of luck at Diddle girls!

    As far as coach Miller, I will admit I was one that was critical of him his first couple of years. He was handed a tremendous amount of young talent when he arrived at WV. These girls were use to playing a fast pace-pressing style while they growing up. He came in with his slow down style, and tried to run an open dribble drive offense(tried to coach every pass) with 3 post players on the floor. Because he was playing players out of postion & wrong style for his talent wv averaged about 20 TO's a game while playing a slow down pace. (Was very hard to watch)

    But I will be the first to admit he adapted to his the talent he was given, still runs open offense some but also now runs many other sets that takes advantage of his girls talents. I still think with a talented 10 player rotation he could run & press atleast at different spurts of games but just not his style. This team biggest weakness has always been point guard & although it is still a work in progress the coaching staff midway through the season decided to go with the the young girls Clinkenbeard & Mullikin @ point & I think the year end success is a direct result of that decision.

    I think the sign of a good coach is being able to adjust your style to talent of your players each year and I think Coach Miller has done a better job with that each year @ WV. Another sign of a good coached is how he coaches in close games down the stretch & I think would be hard to argue with Coach Miller's success in that area, his teams have won many close games down the stretch on their way to back to back all A region titles & now the 8th region title.

    Congrats to WV lady bearcats & Coaching Staff for accomplishing many great goals last couple of years!

    Also I think the fans of the WV program owe a huge amount of appreciation to Dan Sullivan! Not only has he helped coach Miller by serving as his top assistant coach, but a few years ago he developed a grade school program at Walton, not only allowing these kids to play other schools, but also receive alot of good coaching & developing fundamentals of the game. Dan has devoted a tremendous amount of his time & effort having open gyms, working with summer coaches, & coacing summer ball himself!

    He has never been a guy that wants any credit, but I for one think alot the success both the girls & boys programs @ WV have enjoyed & the tremendous young talent we have in the program now is in part a direct result of the developement program started by Coach Sullivan!
