  1. It honestly looked as if neither team had practiced for a long time. I understand jitters, big floor, and all the other excuses, but my goodness it was difficult to watch. The news article reads "BC didn't score for a 10 minute stretch" and I bet it was pretty close to that long for NDA during the same 10 min stretch.
  2. I'm guessing every team in the JV tourney had players sit out because of their roles on varsity...pretty common. Cooper beat NDA for the Championship last night. Congrat's Jags! Terrible officiating and borderline confusing at times, but seems to be a common topic in most threads this year.
  3. Yep! I have zero problem with a coach voting for his/her own team. VoR asked "is it reasonable" to get a 1st place vote over the teams ahead of them...IMO, not until those teams lose OR you beat 'em. In this case, neither has happened, yet! Panda Power! I had to hurry and get that one in before DD
  4. It was a special night seeing BC retire only the 4th jersey in history. Then, it was followed by an absolute barn-burner of a game.
  5. Agreed! They seem to be walking with a bit more bounce in their step and "expect" to win each time they step on the floor. That confidence starts with the coaching staff.
  6. Cooper didn't play bad...they ran into a buzzsaw. The two GC guards were very smooth and were complimented very well with role players. They shot 63% and hit from everywhere even with defenders up in their faces. They are certainly beatable, but any team that tries to run with them better have a solid gameplan with players that can execute or it could be a long night.
  7. There is more parity in the 9th than I've seen in recent years and I see a handful of teams that can make a run if they get hot at the right time. I've attended several games this year and IMO the overall talent level seems to be way down. As for "stars", I've seen a few pretty talented players, but I'm not sure I label any as "stars". Also, from what I've seen, the talent seems to be spread out with not any one team having multiple high level players.
  8. Yep, I stand corrected! I dealt with this a few years ago and failed to remember a few details of the battle. The biggest hurdle by far was the MS principal.
  9. I know middle schooler's were not allowed to play varsity until Coach Richey fought to allow it and won. It was her first year as HHS coach.
  10. To clarify, Boone county "HS" doesn't move MS players up to varsity; however, Conner/Cooper/Ryle allow it. The "unwritten" rule at Conner is/was, a MS 'er can move up to Varsity "IF" they are good enough to play significant minutes. It's not fair the the player to sit the bench and also not fair to take a HS roster spot from another kid that's perfectly capable of sitting the bench.
  11. Cooper is not there yet, but it tells me they'll have a couple of pretty good 8th grade players on the roster. There have been some pretty strong 8th graders playing varsity over the past few years at several HS programs.
  12. Get in tip top condition and stay out of foul trouble! There's enough timeouts and dead balls to go a whole game. Also, there's typically a couple of non-sense fouls, so stay discipline and keep those silly fouls to a minimum.
  13. Absolutely agree! The Cooper staff is the best from top to bottom, hands down!
