  1. Vincennes Lincoln

    Nah. His family moved for family related reasons - not basketball. From a basketball perspective he would have been much better off spending his senior season at Argos where he would have been the number one scoring option. At BR he had to play out of position and didn't have the sort of senior season that I'm sure he would have liked.
  2. Vincennes Lincoln

    Actually that is very few, but even at that only one of those kids is a legitimate example of your point. Bowman was a significant player and most likely moved back to BR because of basketball. Of course he actually started at BR so I don't know if that even fits an expanded definition of "move in".
  3. Vincennes Lincoln

    Nah. "Move in" has a specific meaning in this context, namely high school level transfers. Lots of kids don't attend the same school all 12 years. But even if we consider it the way you suggest, I honestly can't think of one male basketball player who moved into the BR school simply for the basketball program. There were a couple of Shoals kids who went there for cross country (among other things). There were a couple of girl basketball players.
  4. Vincennes Lincoln

    O'Neil played junior high ball at BR. Most people don't consider kids who have always been part of a program as "move ins".
  5. Vincennes Lincoln

    Michael Adams from Reitz was one for sure. Rumor mill says assistant coachs at BR and also Mark Rohrer weren't interested. The only significant move in at the high school level was Duncan Roy. His family moved from Texas and I don't think Hughes was any factor in that whatsoever. BR is all about program strength - just as Loogootee used to be. BR wins at every level. Hughes was a big part of that. The challenge for Thompson will be continuing that feeder system.
  6. Vincennes Lincoln

    Name that tune! :)
  7. Bryan Hughes

    Or the fact that over the years they beat teams coached by him by an average of 21 points.
  8. Bryan Hughes

    I'll agree it shouldn't.
  9. Bryan Hughes

    Nah. Married coach has affair with a married woman. Not even the National Enquirer could come up a headline for that these days.

  11. Sectional 63

    It occurs to me that for a place that is supposed to be tough on coaches Loogootee has been amazingly tolerant with coach Chezem. I mean consider all of the things that have happened that would usually get a coached canned: 1. Never beat the biggest rival. 2. Lose to the one team you can't lose to (Shoals in this case). 3. Play your son more than his ability merits (especially his freshman year). 4. Lose a double digit lead in the 4th quarter (long time Lions fans would almost literally have never seen that). 5. See dwindling fan support during the season.
  12. Southridge Sectional

    No question this is one of the best sectionals in the state. Very few sectionals are such where any of the teams could win, which is the case here. Obviously Washington and Southridge are dark horses, but they got the benefit of the draw. Pike Central and Sullivan are absolutely capable of winning. I wonder if there has ever been a team have as Jeckyl and Hyde a season as Vincennes did this year? If both Vincennes and Princeton are on their game I think that one will just come down to a few breaks/lucky bounces of the ball as much as anything.
  13. Sectional 63

    Barr-Reeve has been playing pretty well of late. They still seem to play to the level of the opponent, as they did not look good against Rivet. Shoals had a nice win at Mitchell, and their win a couple of weeks ago against Springs Valley was a good one. It is going to be nearly impossible to convince the BR players that Shoals is capable of beating them. There is always a huge upset somewhere on day one of the tourney, could it be this game? I doubt it. I think BR has had some players improve a lot over the course of the season. O'Neil is much tougher and better than he was early on. Ainscough has had some outstanding games in the latter part of the season. Isaac Wagler has improved a lot as well. If BR plays to their capacity they will win the sectional and the regional.
  14. It will start at 1:00 eastern time.
  15. Barr-Reeve 56 Loogootee 49 3 OT

    I'm not sure. Loogootee did not shoot the ball very well, so they could improve in that aspect. Each team presents match up problems for the other. Loogootee started 4 little guys, BR starts 3 little guys, that means there is always going to be a mis-match somewhere. You would think BR would have posted up both of their bigs, but they never really did. If Loogootee would come out with a hot start and get a lead, I wonder if BR could ever catch up. Bottom line if I had to bet on one team to come out of the Loogootee sectional and regional, I would still pick BR, but there are several teams, including Loogootee and Orleans that could beat them. Finally, it is hard to beat a team 3 times, especially when the team that lost both times probably feels they should have won both times.
