  1. At least he was on their National Championship team as a freshman. He even started 20 games that season. So, that one play shouldn't define his career at UVA.
  2. I would have mentioned them, but you didn't want teams that didn't at least make the semi-finals. They lost only the one game, by one point to Boyle County. Then they went to Corbin and beat the Redhounds, who went on to win AA, pretty easily. I think they would have won AA if they had gotten in to the playoffs.
  3. I would definitely have listed them. But the original poster wanted to limit to teams that at least made the final four.
  4. Somerset's best team that came up short was probably not one of the 5 State Runner-Up teams, but a Semi-Finalist. The 1984 team went undefeated until they ran into Newport Catholic. The Jumpers had been rated number one, not only in 2A, but number one overall in the Lit Ratings, as well as being nationally ranked by USA Today. But the Breds came into Somerset and shut down the Jumpers high powered offense to avenge a loss in the semi-finals the year before. It was a wet field that night after a week of rain and that helped contain Somerset's backfield duo of Tony Massey and James Fletcher. But the NCC defense played great with future Mr. Football Frank Jacobs and I think Jeff Brady. They went on to beat Fort Knox the next week. I was a freshman on that Somerset team, so that one still stings a little bit.
  5. As of right now they already have 4 Quad 1 wins: 2 vs Tennessee, Mississippi State (who is at #43), and Texas A&M (who is at #27). Hopefully Mississippi State win at least one against Texas A&M and South Carolina at home and Vanderbilt on the road to stay in the top 75.
  6. Rockcastle played well. You could tell that Somerset just wasn't completely healthy. And when two teams are that evenly matched that can be the difference. Good luck to Rockcastle against Pulaski. The Maroons will also be trying to beat the Rockets for a third time. Should be a good game. Rockcastle started one senior and Somerset's sixth man was their only senior. Both of these teams should be really good next year.
  7. Danville was on fire from three point range. They came in shooting 29% as a team and hit 14 in this game. Somerset came into the game with 2 starters out, and when Godby went down they had no answers for the Admirals. Danville led 42-36 at the half and hit 8 three pointers in the second half while Somerset hit none. If Danville can shoot like they did tonight they'll be a tough out, even with that difficult road in the district.
  8. This is as wide open as I can remember the 12th. They don't really have a State Champion contender. But I think pretty much anyone that gets in the Regional Tournament will be dangerous enough to get to the finals. Barring a couple of big upsets in the District of course. As for the Coach of the Year, I think I'd go with Davis as well. His team really knows their roles and are exactly where they are supposed to be all the time. They really play well together.
  9. I wonder if Memorial Coliseum would be an option. They used to play the All A there.
  10. They're facing a tough matchup in the first round of the district against a Rockcastle County team that has played them close twice. But if they can get to the Region they are a dangerous matchup for anyone. As a team they are shooting 41% from three point range, on 8 made three per game. You add that to their 73% as a team from the free throw line, and they could beat anyone in the Region on a given night. They're certainly not the favorites, and probably not in the top 5. But a dangerous team nonetheless. Coach Young has done a great job with this team. He really plays to their strengths.
  11. Final from Somerset. The Briar Jumpers improved to 15-9. Wayne County dropped to 14-11. Somerset's gym was designated as one of the historic gyms by the Glory Road project. They presented the school with a plaque to mount outside the entrance. Wayne County actually wore they're Monticello High School uniforms that they wore last season when the old Monticello gym was presented the plaque and the same 2 teams played.
  12. Somerset starts one freshman on varsity and he didn't play. The JV had to play with only 5 players tonight against McCreary Central due to the freshman tourney. They managed to win and not have anyone foul out.
  13. Agreed. Somerset gets the #1 seed but a much tougher matchup with Rockcastle County. It's tough to beat a team that three times if you're anywhere close to evenly matched. But Somerset seems to really be playing well. They're shooting over 40% from three point range as a team. Hopefully they stay hot. I also like the recent play of their 3 young inside players in Lonesky, Bartley, and Grundy.
  14. Sounds like a good hire. Good luck Coach Rogers and Casey County.
