  1. Top 5 all-time starters at your HS?

    Thanks. Yeah, I edited the first one to correct Dusty's totals. Maybe Satterfield was injured?
  2. Top 5 all-time starters at your HS?

    The 2002-03 HH team just gets no love (only HH team to win a regional game). As a team, I think they were every bit as good as the 1996-97 team. And, if memory serves me right, Dusty was hurt and didn't play in the regional games (beat Sullivan, gave it away to Corydon). If Cole had played basketball his senior year ... wow. Eta: Someone was hurt, apparently Dusty felt well enough to go for 17 and 12.
  3. Is this the first year for the tournament? It's pretty neat to see it being played with the four Dubois County teams together. Kind of harkens back to the days of the single class tournament or the Holiday Tournament held at Huntingburg. This year's schedule: Jasper vs. Northeast Dubois, 10 a.m. Forest Park vs. Southridge, 11:45 a.m. Consolation, 6 p.m. Championship, 7:45 p.m.
  4. PAC 2013,2014. Projections and/or returning players ?

    Favorites: Heritage Hills and Southridge Dark horses: South Spencer and Tecumseh Should be better: Gibson Southern Looking for an identity: North Posey, Forest Park, Tell City, Pike Central It's Southridge's conference until they are beaten. Heritage Hills should go undefeated. If players in Reo buy into O'Brien's system (think Pitino at UK), the Rebels will pressure 90 feet and drain threes. Tecumseh very experienced, not sure they have the size to match Southridge or Heritage Hills. Gibson Southern and North Posey lost great players, but may be better top-to-bottom. Forest Park needs to establish a go-to player. Hopefully, TC and PC will be stronger after another year in their systems.
  5. This should create some dialogue...

    Not a shred.
  6. Can't wait to check out Jasper's new gym.
  7. This should create some dialogue...

    One solution I've proposed to the four-class system would be to put keep classes in sectionals, then put all 64 sectional champions into a tournament. At the regional, the local Class A sectional champion would play the Class 3A champion and the Class 4A sectional champion would play the Class 2A champion. These first-round regional games would be played at "neutral" sites. Then the regional championship would match the Class A-Class 3A winner vs. the Class 2A-Class 4A winner for the championship Saturday night (all at neutral sites). That would leave 16 teams heading into the semistate (four across the state). The Evansville one could be played at the Ford Center, for example. Two semistate wins earns a trip to the four-team state finals.
  8. This should create some dialogue...

    Previously, kids learned more by winning a single-class sectional title, than they do now by winning a four-class sectional title.
  9. This should create some dialogue...

    I'm confused as to how the format of a tournament equates to a better or worse education? Do you have any data to back this up?
  10. Boonville and Tell City are also pretty awesome when full (remembering 2003 boys sectional at Boonville and 2003 girls sectional at Tell City vs. SS, I think)
  11. PAC 2013,2014. Projections and/or returning players ?

    Be sure to buy a copy of the Evansville Courier & Press on Sunday, Nov. 10 for a copy of the Southwestern Indiana basketball tab. 2A TELL CITY MARKSMEN Boys coach: Brent Owen, career record 4-16, 1 year. Last year: W4-L16 Welcome back: Trent Zuelly, 5-10, Sr., 5.4 ppg, 4.6 apg; Brennan Malone, 6-3, Sr., 4.5 ppg, 6 rpg; Drew Mowery 6-0, Sr., 3.1 ppg, 1.5 apg; Reese Miller, 6-1, Sr., 3 ppg, 3 rpg; Grant Sanders, 6-3, Sr., 2 ppg, 3 rpg; Chris Schaefer, 5-11, Sr., 1 ppg, 2 rpg. New faces: Rhett Baumeister, 5-10, Sr.; Caleb Sherry, 5-9, Sr.; Jimmy Phillips, 5-10, Sr.; Matt Zabel, 6-2, Jr.; Gant Miller, 5-11, So.; Hunter Rowe, 6-0, So. Key losses: Matt Watts, 6-2, 12 ppg; Brian Arnold, 6-0, 12 ppg. OUTLOOK The Marksmen will try to replace the loss of 24-points-per-game production due to the graduations of Matt Watts and Brian Arnold. “We simply hope to show improvement relative to last season.” A bevy of seniors will lead the charge highlighted by guard Trent Zuelly. “We need (him) to be a leader on the floor. Trent could be one of the better players in the conference by the end of the season because of the off-season work he put in. I thought our summer went really well. Instead of telling them how to run the offense, they were understanding the offense.” The Marksmen will be one of the few teams to start the season with a game in November, when they’ll play county-rival Cannelton. SCHEDULE Nov. 30 Cannelton 7:30 Dec. 3 Perry Central 7:30 Dec. 7 at Forest Park 7:00 Dec. 13 at Southridge 7:00 Dec. 14 South Central (Elizabeth) 6:30 Dec. 20 at Tecumseh 7:30 Dec. 27 Perry-Spencer Classic through Dec. 30 Jan. 10 Mount Vernon 7:30 Jan. 11 at Hancock County (Ky.) 7:30 Jan. 18 South Spencer 7:30 Jan. 24 Mater Dei 7:00 Jan. 25 at Crawford County 7:00 Jan. 31 at Ohio County (Ky.) 7:30 Feb. 1 at Springs Valley 6:30 Feb. 7 Pike Central 7:00 Feb. 8 at Gibson Southern 7:30 Feb. 11 Cloverport (Ky.) 7:00 Feb. 13 at North 6:30 Feb. 21 Heritage Hills 7:30 Feb. 22 at North Posey 7:30 2A SOUTH SPENCER REBELS Boys coach: Ted O’Brien, first year. Last year: W10-L12. Welcome back: Dakota Risse, 6-0, Sr., 13 ppg, 4 rpg, 3 apg; Nathan Kuester, 5-11, Sr., 8 ppg, 3 rpg, 2 apg; Malin Webb, 6-2, Sr., 4 ppg, 4 rpg, 2 apg; Isaac Hebner, 6-5, Sr., 5 ppg, 5 rpg; Chandler Roberts, 6-3, Sr., 4 ppg, 4 rpg, 2 apg. New faces: Jan Stallings, 6-2, Jr.; Trevor Lehr 5-10, Jr.; Adam Roth, 5-11, Jr.; Kody Lopez, 5-10, Jr.; Ben Huff, 6-3, Jr.; Grant Allen, 6-3, So.; Kobe Stephens, 5-11, So.; Jesse Stallings, 6-4, So. Key losses: Charleston Roberts, 6-3, 8 ppg, 5 rpg; Cole Woodburn, 6-0, 10 ppg, 3 rpg, 2 apg. OUTLOOK Former Heritage Hills standout Ted O’Brien returns to Spencer County to make his coaching debut at rival South Spencer, where the cupboard isn’t bare. The Rebels graduated two starters from a team, which finished .500 in the PAC. He said, “We will be very deep. It is too early to determine starters or who will be in the varsity rotation. Practice should be extremely competitive.” O’Brien is the fourth coach in five seasons in Reo. The Rebels may look to utilize their speed and apparent depth to put constant pressure on the opposition. “Our guys will have to commit to the defensive end of the floor and learn to play for each other.” The seniors, including All-PAC selection Dakota Risse, have seen varsity action most of their high school careers. SCHEDULE Dec. 2 at Owensboro Catholic (Ky.) 7:30 Dec. 6 Mater Dei 7:30 Dec. 10 Cannelton 6:00 Dec. 13 at Hancock County (Ky.) 7:30 Dec. 14 Mount Vernon 7:30 Dec. 20 Gibson Southern 7:30 Dec. 27 Perry-Spencer Classic through Dec. 30 Jan. 10 Day 7:30 Jan. 11 Owensboro (Ky.) 7:30 Jan. 17 Forest Park 7:00 Jan. 18 at Tell City 7:30 Jan. 25 at North Posey 7:30 Jan. 31 at Pike Central 7:00 Feb. 1 Heritage Hills 7:30 Feb. 8 at Perry Central 7:30 Feb. 13 Princeton 7:30 Feb. 21 Southridge 7:00 Feb. 22 at Boonville 7:30 Feb. 28 Tecumseh 7:30 3A HERITAGE HILLS PATRIOTS Boys coach: Matt Sisley, 55-78 career record, 6 years. Last year: W14-L8. Welcome back: Devon Merder, 6-3, Sr., 17.9 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 2.8 apg; Gavin Schaefer, 6-3, Jr., 14.4 ppg, 5.4 rpg; Spenser Minto, 6-4, Sr., 9.6 ppg, 4.7 rpg; Tyler Ward, 5-10, Jr., 8 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 2.3 apg; Sam Scherry, 6-1, Sr., 7.5 ppg, 4 rpg, 4.4 apg; Justin Crane, 6-0, Sr., 4.6 ppg, 2.2 apg; Andy Sickbert, 6-2, Sr. New faces: Zach Zoglman, 5-11, Sr.; Torrin Madden, 5-11, Sr.; Sean Schaefer, 5-9, Jr.; Logan Wilkerson, 5-11, Jr.; Caleb Sabelhaus, 6-5, Jr.; Sam Collins, 6-3, Jr. Key losses: None. OUTLOOK It’s championships or bust in Lincoln City for Coach Matt Sisley’s upperclassman-laden squad. Last season’s team, which had no seniors, gave the Patriots’ boss his first winning season. “(We want to) play more physical, improve on the defensive end and become a better rebounding team,” Sisley said. Devon Merder and Gavin Schaefer should continue to pace Heritage Hills offensively, while Spenser Minto, Andy Sickbert, Caleb Sabelhaus and Sam Collins need to bolster a Patriot interior lacking anyone over 6-foot-5, but are relatively long across the board. Conference-rival Southridge dealt the Patriots’ their lone PAC loss last season. And the last championships won by the Patriots were in 2005 (PAC) and 2003 (sectional). SCHEDULE Dec. 7 at Northeast Dubois 7:00 Dec. 13 North Posey 7:30 Dec. 21 Mount Vernon 7:00 Dec. 27 Perry-Spencer Classic through Dec. 30 Jan. 4 at North Harrison 7:00 Jan. 10 at Gibson Southern 7:30 Jan. 11 Washington 7:00 Jan. 17 at Pike Central 7:00 Jan. 18 Tecumseh 7:30 Jan. 24 Southridge 7:00 Jan. 31 Mater Dei 7:30 Feb. 1 at South Spencer 7:30 Feb. 7 Boonville 7:30 Feb. 8 at Jasper 6:30 Feb. 13 Forest Park 7:00 Feb. 15 at Vincennes Lincoln 3:30 Feb. 21 at Tell City 7:30 Feb. 25 Princeton 7:00 Feb. 28 at Perry Central 7:30 2A FOREST PARK RANGERS Boys coach: Jeff Litherland, 5-5 career record, 1 year. Last year: W8-L14. Welcome back: Joel Weyer, 5-10, Sr. 12.7 ppg, 2 spg; Damon Wilmes 6-2, Jr., 7.4 ppg; Dakota Begle 6-4, Sr.; Austin Egloff 6-3, Sr.; Cody Temple 6-2, Sr.; Ben Englert, 6-0, Jr., 3.4 ppg. New faces: Jaxon Cronin 6-2, So.; Dacotah Deel, 5-11, Jr.; Ben Wendholt, 6-3, So.; David Lusk, 6-0, So.; Dylan Buechler, 6-1, So.; Austin Bromm, 5-9, Jr. Key losses: Adam Braunecker, 4.6 ppg, 2.4 apg, 1.5 spg; Kyle Schlachter, 3.4 ppg, 1.5 bpg; Lance Buechler, 4.9 ppg; Drew Messmer, 9.1 ppg, 1.8 apg. OUTLOOK Depth, or perhaps the lack of depth, and how Coach Jeff Litherland can navigate his first full season at the Rangers’ helm will be keys to watch in Ferdinand. “We have great leadership in our seniors, but we have to have contributions from underclassmen Dacotah Deel, Ben Wendholt, Dylan Buechler and David Lusk.” Wendholt will miss until January with a broken foot. Joel Weyer, a returning senior who garnered all-conference honors last season, will be relied on heavily for his leadership. Also, keep an eye on how the Rangers’ frontcourt develops. “Depth and rebounding,” Litherland said. SCHEDULE Nov. 27 Crawford County 6:30 Dec. 7 Tell City 7:00 Dec. 13 Loogootee 6:30 Dec. 14 at Washington 7:00 Dec. 20 at Northeast Dubois 6:30 Dec. 27 Perry-Spencer Classic through Dec. 30 Jan. 11 Perry Central 7:00 Jan. 17 at South Spencer 7:00 Jan. 18 North Posey 7:00 Jan. 24 Jasper 7:00 Jan. 25 Tecumseh 7:00 Jan. 31 at Southridge 6:30 Feb. 7 at Mater Dei 7:00 Feb. 8 at Wood Memorial 7:00 Feb. 13 at Heritage Hills 7:00 Feb. 15 at Barr-Reeve 1:30 Feb. 18 at Boonville 7:00 Feb. 21 Pike Central 6:30 Feb. 25 Gibson Southern 7:00 3A SOUTHRIDGE RAIDERS Boys coach: Jeremy Rauch, 39-26 career record, 3 years. Last year: W17-L4. Welcome back: Chad O’Bryan, 6-7, Sr., 9.3 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 1.6 apg; Cody Thompson, 6-5, Sr., 8.6 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.0 apg. New faces: Corbin Neu, 6-1, Jr.; Henry Steckler, 6-3, Jr.; Evan Julian, 6-4, Jr.; Connor Craig, 5-10, Jr.; Chance Tretter, 6-0, Jr.; Dillon Ramsey, 6-2, Jr.; Cam O’Bryan, 6-3, Jr.; Payton Mattingly, 5-11, So. Key losses: Ben Weber, 5-10, 13.7 ppg, 4 rpg, 3.1 apg; Trey Reese, 5-11, 6.3 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 4.2 apg; Cody Moesner, 6-2, 6.2 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 1.6 apg. OUTLOOK The defending-PAC champions return to a formidable Sectional 31 after a two-year stint in Class 2A that features other perennial contenders like Jasper, Vincennes Lincoln, Heritage Hills and Washington. The Raiders lose 2 of their 3 all-conference selections from last season, but should feature the PAC’s top frontcourt in Chad O’Bryan and Cody Thompson. “We lost three starters to graduation, so these (starting) spots will have to be filled by newcomers,” Coach Jeremy Rauch said. “We have to be a tough team and our juniors have to shoulder the ball-handling load and initiate offense without turning it over.” Despite the personnel losses, Rauch expects his squad to contend for conference and sectional titles. SCHEDULE Dec. 7 at Gibson Southern 7:00 Dec. 13 Tell City 7:00 Dec. 14 at Pike Central 6:30 Dec. 17 at Springs Valley 6:30 Dec. 21 Jasper 6:30 Dec. 23 North Daviess Classic through Dec. 28 Jan. 10 at Tecumseh 7:00 Jan. 11 at Northeast Dubois 6:30 Jan. 17 Perry Central 7:00 Jan. 24 at Heritage Hills 7:00 Jan. 25 at Paoli 6:30 Jan. 31 Forest Park 6:30 Feb. 1 Crawford County 6:30 Feb. 7 at North Posey 7:00 Feb. 8 at Loogootee 6:30 Feb. 13 Wood Memorial 7:00 Feb. 18 Washington 6:30 Feb. 21 at South Spencer 7:00 Feb. 28 Boonville 7:00 A TECUMSEH BRAVES Boys coach: Kevin Oxley, 271-222 career record, 21 years. Last year: W9-L13. Welcome back: Adam Grannan, 6-2, Sr., 11 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 3.7 apg; Alex Hall, 6-1, Sr., 10.5 ppg, 2.7 spg, 1.5 apg; Parker Buse, 6-3, Sr., 10.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg; Garrett Tuley, 5-10, Sr., 2 ppg, 1.5 apg, Ty Webb, 6-2, Sr.; Daniel Pemberton, 5-10, Sr.; Keenan Lautner, 5-10, So.; Jackson Fowler, 5-8, So. New faces: Austin Perry, 5-11, Sr.; Tristan Cummings, 6-2, Jr.; Christian Wagner 6-2, Jr.; Grant Pemberton 6-0, So. Key losses: Andrew Morris, 6-1; Chris Phillips, 6-0 (combined for 11 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 2.7 spg). OUTLOOK The Braves return an experienced nucleus of four starters including Adam Grannan, Alex Hall, Parker Buse and Garrett Tuley. Tecumseh will try to better last season’s 3-5 conference mark and prove itself as a contender in the five-team Sectional 64. Tecumseh had won seven-straight sectionals from 2004 to 2010 under veteran coach, Kevin Oxley, now coaching his 22nd season in Lynnville. He said, “We need to shoot the ball better and get a few players to perform in new roles, but we feel we can become a very competitive club.” SCHEDULE Nov. 30 Boonville 7:30 Dec. 7 at Wood Memorial 7:30 Dec. 13 Barr-Reeve 7:00 Dec. 20 Tell City 7:30 Dec. 26 Vincennes Lincoln Tournament through Dec. 28 Jan. 3 North Daviess 7:00 Jan. 10 Southridge 7:00 Jan. 11 at Cannelton 6:00 Jan. 17 at North Posey 7:30 Jan. 18 at Heritage Hills 7:30 Jan. 25 at Forest Park 7:00 Jan. 31 at Vincennes Rivet 7:00 Feb. 4 at Day 7:30 Feb. 7 Gibson Southern 7:30 Feb. 8 Lanesville 7:00 Feb. 13 Pike Central 7:00 Feb. 18 at Castle 7:30 Feb. 22 at Perry Central 7:30 Feb. 28 at South Spencer 7:30 3A GIBSON SOUTHERN TITANS Boys coach: Travis Farmer, 32-37 career record, 3 years. Last year: W8-L15. Welcome back: Mason Lankford, 5-11, Sr., 7.3 ppg, 2 rpg, 1.9 apg; Damian Silva, 6-3, Sr., 3.3 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 1.1 apg; Brandon Staback, 6-0, Sr., 4.2 ppg, 1.5 rpg; Alex Smith, 5-10, Jr. 7.3 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 2.8 apg. New faces: Reed Farmer, 6-3, Sr.; Luke McBee, 6-5, Sr.; Gabe Steinmetz, 6-2, Sr.; Auston Roeder, 6-0, Sr.; Shane Murphy, 5-11, Jr.; Tyler McCrary, 6-1, Jr.; Chance Kruse, 6-2, Jr.; Mason Mockobee, 6-1, So. Key losses: Spencer Schmitt 6-5, Sr., 13.6 ppg, 6.7 rpg; Jordan Scheller, 6-1, Sr., 7 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 1.6 apg; Andrew Ziliak, 6-2, Sr., 10.8 ppg, 4 rpg. OUTLOOK The Titans lost three of their better players to graduation, but return a slew of seniors and 12 upperclassmen. Coach Travis Farmer wants a team “totally committed” on both end of the court. He said, “Our players will have to be blue collar fist-fighters, rather than pretty-boy jump shooters this season.” The Titans finished in the middle of the PAC last season and were bounced in the first round of the sectional. “We feel that we have several guys who can lead our team in scoring on a given night,” Farmer said.

Last year: W3-L17. Welcome back: Kegan Aldridge, 507, Sr., 7.5 ppg, 2.4 rpg; Garrett Elliott, 6-0, Jr.; Tyler Toopes, 6-3, So. New faces: Bailey White, 6-3, Sr.; Damon Schnarr, 5-5, Sr.; Dakota Walker, 6-2, Jr.; Garrett Wojo, 5-11, Jr.; Nick Kluemper 5-10, Jr.; Gabe Elliott 6-4, Fr.; Colton White, 5-10. Key losses: Trevor Claridge, 5-11, 9 ppg, 4.2 rpg; Tyler Garland, 6-1, 9 ppg, 5.1 rpg. OUTLOOK “We will be extremely young and we will need to be able to establish our roles as individuals,” said Coach John Mokris, now in his second season in Petersburg. The Chargers were winless in the conference last season and lost veteran scorers Trevor Claridge and Tyler Garland to graduation. “We must be able to play defense and rebound better than we did last year,” added Mokris. Kegan Aldirdge is the team’s top returning scorer at 7.5 ppg. Three seniors, four juniors, a sophomore and two freshmen will fill the Chargers’ varsity roster at first. Mokris said, “We still have more than a month until Barr-Reeve. The two freshmen maybe could challenge for starting positions.” SCHEDULE Dec. 6 Barr-Reeve 7:00 Dec. 7 at Princeton 7:00 Dec. 14 Southridge 6:30 Dec. 20 Vincennes Rivet 6:30 Dec. 21 at North Posey 6:30 Jan. 3 at Springs Valley 6:30 Jan. 10 Wood Memorial 7:00 Jan. 11 Mitchell 6:30 Jan. 17 Heritage Hills 7:00 Jan. 18 Jasper 6:30 Jan. 24 North Knox 6:30 Jan. 25 at Washington 7:00 Jan. 31 South Spencer 7:00 Feb. 7 at Tell City 7:00 Feb. 8 at Vincennes Lincoln 6:30 Feb. 13 at Tecumseh 7:00 Feb. 18 Gibson Southern 7:00 Feb. 21 at Forest Park 6:30 Feb. 25 at South Knox 6:30 Feb. 28 at Northeast Dubois 6:30 2A NORTH POSEY VIKINGS Boys coach: Heath Howington, 9-14 career record, 1 year.

He said, “(We) will have more depth this season than we did last year.” The Vikings were deadlocked with the Rebels, Rangers and Titans tied for third-place last season in last season’s PAC race. Newcomer Bryce Martin, a junior, should help to solidify the Vikings’ backcourt. “All of our newcomers will have an opportunity to compete for a starting spot. We want to finish in the top half of the conference and be better than yesterday.” SCHEDULE Nov. 30 at North 7:30 Dec. 6 Mount Vernon 7:30 Dec. 13 at Heritage Hills 7:30 Dec. 20 at Mater Dei 7:30 Dec. 21 Pike Central 6:30 Dec. 23 North Daviess Classic through Dec. 28 Jan. 11 at Mount Vernon 7:30 Jan. 17 Tecumseh 7:30 Jan. 18 at Forest Park 7:00 Jan. 21 Central 7:30 Jan. 24 at South Knox 7:00 Jan. 25 South Spencer 7:30 Feb. 1 at Princeton 7:00 Feb. 7 Southridge 7:00 Feb. 13 at Memorial 7:30 Feb. 15 at Perry Central 1:30 Feb. 21 Boonville 7:30 Feb. 22 Tell City 7:30 Feb. 28 Gibson Southern 7:30
