  1. Are you implying an independent is the same as a private school? Or that an independent is not a public school by definition?
  2. I guess they’d fall where every other public school falls, since KY has open enrollment.
  3. IMO, KY has a goofy playoff system for many of the above reasons. I would mainly like to see KY move to a public tourney and a private school tourney like several other states have. I’m a shot clock guy too.
  4. Hatton 3,045 Draud Sr. 2,865 career, 1,094 in his Senior year; 31 ppg Jr., 35 ppg Sr.
  5. Tonight in Ft. Mitchell vs Covington Catholic, Scotty Draud moved to the top of the list in the record book for Beechwood Boys Varsity Basketball career scoring with 2,395 Points. He passed Anthony Frommeyer, Class of 1997, who had 2,389. Very impressive record considering Draud is a junior. Best wishes for the upcoming Region and State Tourney and a strong Senior campaign. Way to go!
  6. IMO, for the Tigers to win, here are a couple of keys. Defensive rebounding is the Tigers #1 need. If they can keep second chance points to a minimum for the Bulldogs, I think Beechwood’s chances go way up. The Tigers have to do a good enough job guarding on the ball. If the Dogs take the rock to the rack, it could cause issues for the Tigers. Make the Dogs play D; motion offense, screens, and dribble drives will be crucial. Especially, if the Tigers are shooting average or below average from the arc. I think the Dogs can get a little lazy on D. Finally, we all know that at some point in the game, Holmes is going to implode and start arguing and infighting with team mates. If the Tigers can remain composed if/when the Dogs make a run, I think they have the experience and talent to beat an athletic Holmes squad. This could be a good game, but I predict Tigers by 13.
  7. Bluebirds shot the ball as well as any team I’ve seen this season. It was the difference in the game. They are a really good passing team too. Role players took the spotlight from the stars tonight. Hughes for Beechwood played as well as he’s played this season. Maybe Rylee is a 15 point difference if he plays next time; who knows. Highlands deserved to win this one.
  8. He probably means Hughes instead of Johnson. Hughes was out with the flu and Rylee rolled an ankle last weekend. Cody might have played half of the game. Disciplinary action I was told. First time seeing him; IMO, freakishly quick and athletic but not very skilled. Easy to get into his head with a little physical defense, he likes to talk smack. Got a warning from the refs in this one.
  9. Had a friend text me and say that Highlands was 19-25 from the line with 19 fouls called against Ryle and 8 against Highlands. She said the "refs in this area love Highlands." I guess the further teams go in this tournament, the tougher the officiating gets? Ryle fans were none too pleased with the refs.
  10. In game 1 last night, after seeing both Conner and Cov Cath Frosh a couple times each, it looked like a good game for most of the 1st Period. Then, the wheels fell off for Conner. They were unable to score the ball, for the next three Periods. A complete blowout happened. Conner got open looks, lay ups, and fast break opportunities; I've never seen anything like it. Conner could not buy a basket and before they knew it, the game was lost. In game 2, both Beechwood and St. Henry looked very efficient. A good game defensively by both, offensively by both, it's just that one team had to win and one had to lose. St. Henry is tall, long, and has some athletes in the Frosh and Soph class. Should be a few good years coming for the Cru. Beechwood was up 5 at the end and the Cru almost took it in the end. Should be some good games in the semi-finals.
  11. Who is the favorite? Is this a seeded draw or a blind draw?
  12. Hosted at Covington Catholic. 02/06 Play-in game 6:15pm. Beechwood 44 Cooper 41
  13. I agree with the parking lot comment.
  14. IMO - Harrison Co is an extremely weak opponent. Not very skilled, big, or athletic. With that said, Beechwood again was miserable at stopping dribble drive penetration. Beechwood shot way too many 3’s and missed the majority. I bet they were below 30% on the day. The bigs rarely touched the ball in the paint and had a huge size advantage. It’s painful to watch as they continually chuck the 3 when it’s not going. One bright spot was Decker getting the ball at the FT line high post against the zone D. Very little energy / effort today and the game was much closer than the final score shows. Luckily, HC couldn’t handle the press well enough or the result might have been different. Not enough points on the half court set, lay ups saved them today. I hate to be a downer, but the Tigers have 2 of their toughest opponents this week and are certainly not peaking at the right time.
