I'd like to hear from the masses how kids are out for baseball at the schools in the area, do you have a JV program? Sadly, baseball/ softball is becoming a tougher tougher sell to kids. They want to work on that scholly (ha!) so AAU basketball and club volleyball and club soccer are played in the spring.

Incredible how many tournament games are played in the 30's scoring. Over coaching, scared of making mistakes. Let the kids play. Official, if it's a foul, call it. If you are cognisant of the time, score, number of fouls the star player has, then you are impacting the game and that's wrong.

No guarantees in high school sports, you run into a hot shooting team one night and it's over. OG had beaten Archbold 9 straight, so you couldn't help but think OG was looking past them. Most had OG in the final four before the season started.

Sounds like there are "issues" at Lima Senior. Quincy is cracking down on grade problems and other troubles. Kids have been left home from games....suspended, etc. Some parents aren't taking well to this new policing of their kids and aren't happy with Q for ramping up the penalties for screwing up. Sounds like they also had a couple guys miss last night with the flu.
Kudos for whomever is stepping down on these kids. We have too many instances where the kids are not taking their school seriously. Most of these kids will not play college basketball, but they all need to be able to go out and get jobs some day. The only recourse for coaches and administrators is to take playing time away.

After Cory Rawson's stunner over LB last Friday, it's safe to say the league is wide open this year. Pandora, North Baltimore, Leipsic, Arlington, Van Buren and Hopewell Louden all are in the mix. As far as any kind of power rankings, I think you do have to look at teams having the best seasons of the teams they play, not that who is the best team in the area. Question, when is the last time LB started a boys basketball season 0-3?
