Not sure if this will create much of a discussion but what's your thoughts on this district? Who comes out of it? Do you think there could be an upset?

top 4 seeds should be PG, Kalida, N. Baltimore and Miller City.

As far as a dark horse goes, Columbus Grove has improved throughout the year, played PG tough Tues. night and could pull an upset or two if they are hitting from behind the arc.

Like PG and should be some great games. MC and Kalida could wreak some havoc and Grove hitting stride. 2 freshman are nice players.

"When the lights go on" is something that our Rockets have always struggled with in the past.....I've watched OG play numerous times in tournaments and they always seemed to exhibit confidence.....somewhat lacking on our part...we definitely have the talent, I like the coaching, and our fanbase is good....just the intangibles are missing....if we get to a Kalida game I'm not sure we have what it takes....

I think PG is more than capable of getting to regionals. Personally I donít find the LB district all that tough. Kalida may be the only tough out but I think with PG senior heavy team and their physicality will help them get there. Regionals will be tough.

NB not getting much love from the posters above.....they have some size and point guard is now healthy after a football injury. They are athletic and have experience from last year's regional team. They added a good 3 point shooter that was not on the varsity team last year as well. 3 or 4 different scoring options. I agree PG is the solid favorite but I see NB in the district final v. PG when dust settles.

Yeah but NB is kinda like Hicksville, its just hard to take them serious when you look at their schedule. What key win do they have this year? Arlington? All the other teams they played that have have a winning record they lost too.

Yep, with 1 win over a team with a winning record....don't see the Tigers being a real factor come tourney time

North Baltimore is no good....end of story. Also saw them at Regionals last year and wondered how they won a District. Man!

BVC is about as bad as itís ever been. Need to let the BVC and BBC have their own tournament with the winner getting t shirts and 2 weeks of free basketball camp. Brutal

I think that was the worst game Kalida played all season.

If Gazerk would go down to the post and demand the ball NB could be real scary. Not many bodies can match his. However he's content to float to the arc and jack up treys.

Sounds like the coach is the problem.....if he is a inside presence then thatís where he should be!!!!

A new coach that basically hasn't changed much from last year.

Wow, tough on NB here huh? Look at their 3 losses, PG beat them pretty good. They lost close games to Toledo Christian and MVCD....two of the better D4 teams in NW Ohio possibly. Kalida struggles to score 45 points at times and I just think NB is a lot better than most seem to think. They can score. Point guard being healthy makes a big difference too. That being said I will be shocked if anyone but PG wins this district.

It's tough to say....yes, only 3 losses....but then again, they only played 4 teams with a winning record all year. Toledo Christian and MVCD are in one of the weakest leagues in the state and play everybody twice......neither of them win more than 12-14 games if they are playing the schedule that someone like Delphos St Johns played. If NB can win a couple games, I'll come on here and apologize to them....lol, but at this point I'm not real worried about having to do that
