  1. I sure hope that he does as well, but going to and fro is defiantly not a good look. Hope the best for him.
  2. I have heard Bowling Green, again just what I have heard.
  3. Figured it was something of that sort, just wasn't sure. Thanks for the info. Hope he really puts the work in on the academic side and gets what he needs, because no doubt, he has all the skills you need on the basketball side. Best of luck to him.
  4. Madison Central is looking to have a good year this year with 5 of their Seniors already committed, 2 to EKU, 2 to Georgetown College, and 1 to Lincoln Trail. They play a tough schedule, as always seems to be the case in any sport really, when you are talking about the 11th region.
  5. I hope he gets a chance as well, he can really play. I am a little confused though, maybe somebody can clarify for me. Aspire is housed in DeSales which is a high school, he is a senior and I assume graduating from Trinity. Is he just going to be taking some classes and studying for the ACT while at DeSales? Maybe retaking some classes for better grades? Or is he just going to be playing for Aspire and not attending DeSales classes? Just curious how this works in this situation, since DeSales per say doesn't have a post grad program that I am aware of.

  7. Scott Co. by 10+. CJ better have a huge game, and he is capable of that, but Scott is the better over all team and I think it will be shown today.
  8. Good half for Central so far, have way too many empty trips done the court. Have to limit those going forward. LCA is starting to figure out Centrals zone but don’t ha e much to stop the speed of Minter breaking down the defense. Should be a great 2nd half.
  9. LCA struggling on offense. Settling for some very deep 3’s. Central is playing well. A few sloppy turnovers
  10. Cards by 15+. Only chance Lafayette has is, if their jump trapping defense causes a lot of havoc. Scott Co just has too many good players, I think, for it to be an issue.
  11. This has the potential to be another great game. I think the key is, which team makes adjustments that help and cover the advantage the other team has. In Madison Central case, it is LCA height and length that will cause them the most trouble. If I not mistaken, I believe LCA has 3 starters 6'5" and over. One being Kyle Rode who plays point for the most part. Central could match up on the other 2 big's with Cozart 6' 7" and Gerald 6' 3" but that would put one of the other guards, most likely Minter 5' 11" matching up with Rode. In the 3 times I have seen LCA play, none this year against Central, I have watched as Rode takes the opposing guards down low and have his way. He is tall and also a very big body. So, I think matching up, and playing man, presents a possible problem for Central on the defensive end. The option would be to play zone, but LCA shoots the ball from outside well which includes their big's. What calls Coach Feldhaus makes and how Central executes will go a long way in Centrals success. The other thing that always plays a part when Central plays, is staying out of foul trouble. This team for Tournament purposes in only about 6-7 deep and that is all Feldhaus will play as long as nobody get in foul trouble. From LCA stand point, yes they are very tall and have good length, but they are not a quick team. There isn't much quickness anywhere in the lineup, and I think that presents a problem for them against Central. Nobody is going to be able to stay in front of Isaiah Minter or the other guards, and they could make it a long night by getting to the basket a lot, especially Isiah Minter. By breaking down the defense, it opens up Cozart and Gerlad around the basket. And on the defensive end, I would think that Central might press, a little, full court, and if they don't, they would press up high on the half court side. So how LCA handles the speed and pressure of Central, on both the defensive and offensive side of the ball, will go a long way in determining their success. I can’t wait for tomorrow afternoon, and I am hoping that both teams show up and we have the game that both teams are capable of playing. If anybody is planning on coming to watch, let me know. I would love to meet some other basketball junkies. My pick……..Rollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Tribeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :taz::ylsuper:
  12. It was!!! That was probably one of the best HS games I have ever seen. Both teams gave it their all,and left everything on the floor. Back and forth runs from both teams to open 5 pts leads,then only to have the other team a run and go up by 2. Its a shame that one of the teams had to go home last night. As one of the coaches for Central said last night, " you won't see a better game then this one, at the state tournament". I was defiantly worth the price of admission and unfortunately for Bryan Station it was the end of a great year. For Central it looked at times last night that lightening would strike 3 times and they would lose a third time to Station, but the boys just kept press forward and made some really big plays when they needed to. Isaiah Minter had a great game and finished with 30 I believe, and Dustin Gerald finished with 28 I think. (not official numbers just what I remember, and I am old lol) I said at the beginning of the year that this team would go as far as these 2 will take them. Isaiah Cozart is the name that everybody knows from Central, but it is these 2 that add the playmaking and shot making ability. Gerald has had 9 or 10 double double this year and is the team leading scorer, while Minter has really excelled in running the offense and playing lock down defense. They have been playing very well and because of that so has Central. I am not sure of the official stat line for Cozart but I know it reads in the neighborhood of the following 10 pts, 17 rebound and 14 blocked shots. I may have the rebounds and the blocks reversed. None the less, he put in his usual triple double body of work and was a great force as always. Last but not least Coach made his presence felt last night, he started out in zone to make Station shoot from the outside, and when Boone started making some to start the second half, he went to a box and one, with Isaiah Minter chasing and face guarding Boone. Once Central did that is took Boone out of the game to some extent. It seemed all facets of Central's game worked together last night to get the win, and it was as hard a fought win as you could have. Again hats of the Bryan Station and Eric Boone for their performance last night and their great year. Central goes on to play LCA at 1:30 Saturday and it too should be a very good game. LCA brings a lot of length and size to the table, along with some good shooters. These 2 haven't met this year and LCA will be looking for pay back as Central ousted them in last years regions tournament. On Centrals part I think staying out of foul trouble will be the key. I think that LCA is going to have a hard time with our speed, and the easy at the basket layups they go against Frankfort will be denied by Cozart. I wouldn't be surprised to see Central pick up full court or press up high at the half court line. It should be another great game in what the 11th region tournament is.........the Gauntlet!
  13. Great work as always. I think your right, the first round has the making of two wins by a comfortable margin, Scott Co and LCA, and 2 good games in the other matches. Station and Central should be a good match. I agree, Boone is probably the best player on the floor and containing him is always a chore. I think that Dustin Gerald will be the difference maker. They don’t have anybody to match him and if he is aggressive, he will be a difference maker. Isaiah Minter needs to take care of the ball and run the offense. Cozart will be a difficult cover for Station, at times in the last couple of games Boone even guarded him. It should be a good one and I can’t wait. I think with the changes Feldhaus makes from the 2 previous games and the fact the Station supporting cast hasn’t been playing to the level they were earlier in the season Central takes this game. I hope your right and that it ends up Scott Co. and Central, its a tough road for Central to even get there, but they have the talent to do it. It’s going to be a great week of basketball.
  14. Yep, told my son, if he played in any other region, he would have a very good chance of getting to Rupp for his senior year. Scott Co. makes it very difficult, but not impossible. But before they even get that chance, they have to go through the first 2 games gauntlet.
  15. Without a doubt.......Madison Central.........start with Bryan Station, if they win that they most likely play Lexington Christian and if they win, and get to the Championship, they more then likely get to play Scott Co. The argument could be made for any other team on that side of the bracket. By far the toughest route to Rupp that I have seen. As always, just my opinion. I guess it could be argued, they aren't the region favorite, Scott Co. is....with which I agree.
  16. Yes the 3rd meeting. Central has lost both times previous. It is a tough draw for us, with both Station and more then likely LCA, who is playing some really good ball now. I know the team is excited to get after it, and if they come out of the region, it will be a well earned championship. It is going to be tough, but I can’t wait to get it started. Greatest time of year in HS basketball
  17. They have split this year with the home team taking the win. South has been playing well and I'll go with them to go in and get the steal on Corbin's court. Pulling more for JJ Ramsey then anything, kid has a non-stop motor and can flat out play. I really enjoy watching him. Should be a fun one to watch.
  18. I like the way it is, because as everyone says, there is always a chance that David might slay Goliath. I also like the fact that we aren't required to play the district teams during the regular season, but everybody does have a chance to play during tournament time. I will use the 44th and Madison Central as an example. We don't play Berea or Model during the regular season, and there is no reason to do that. Those games would be huge blow outs and wouldn't be to the betterment of any team. Besides, not making Central schedule those teams, they can schedule other top teams like they do every year (Trinity, Ballard, Cov Cath this year) in those schools place. Playing them during the year would be meaningless, even with an upset of Central it wouldn't really mean anything more then bragging rights. On the other hand, an upset of Central in District play and you have done something, and are rewarded for the win. Just my 2 cents worth on why everybody should get a chance come district time.
  19. Looks like it turned out to be a good one after a slow Henry Clay start.
