  1. Romeo cuts list to 7

    If his sole focus is to "get to the next level", then he should be looking at Kentucky or Duke. My gut feeling is the Kentucky/Indiana series gets renewed and he will be the starting point guard for IU versus Kentucky in Lucas Oil Stadium in the 2018/2019 season.
  2. Head Coach Openings: 2017-2018

    Hunter Elliott has been promoted to the head coach position at Pike Central replacing Jason Roach who has moved to Evansville North.
  3. PAC Conference 2017-2018

    The Montgomery kid will be a freshman at Southridge. He was a monster as a middle schooler though he had been fighting off some injuries toward the end of his 8th grade year. We'll have to see how well he adapts to the speed of the high school game.
  4. For the past several years, I've had the good fortune of doing PA work for Pike Central Boys and Girls Basketball games. One thing I've always thought would add to the "informational" aspect would be to announce scores of local games as they happen, particularly halftime and final scores. I think the best way to achieve this would be a group text type deal. It would be as simple as when you hit halftime, firing off a text to the group "halftime, Southridge 28, Pike Central 27" Is this something other PA guys (or scorekeepers) would be interested in? If you feel a cell number is too personal, maybe a Google Hangouts group deal. Input? Opinions?
  5. Coach - I can't seem to post to any of the boards. Kyle McCutchan was promoted to the new girls' basketball coach at Pike Central (replacing Shawn Warner). Hunter Elliott was also promoted to the boys' head coaching position (replacing Jason Roach).

  6. Pike Central New BB Coach

    I hear they have a left handed freshman who can fill it up from three...
  7. Pike Central New BB Coach

    Dumb is one of the kinder things I get called.
  8. Pike Central New BB Coach

    In that case maybe it's the fumes from I P & L that is causing mine. I'm a Kentucky fan living in the land of Hoosier. I can take the jossling.
  9. Pike Central New BB Coach

    When you get old senility happens...
  10. Pike Central New BB Coach

    I know this thread is about Coach Mokris but can you tell me about Coach Doyle? Was he assistant under Mokris? Has he moved up to take John's position?
  11. Pike Central New BB Coach

    Good luck to Coach Mokris. Quite a challenge he has ahead of him but if he can hang on talent is coming. Freshman Toopes has D1 potential and middle school has several good prospects.
  12. Trey Lyles

    Ditto this. Wonder what he thinks of Calipari? If you can't sell your program how you going to get kids to come there?
  13. Trey Lyles

    The only thing an elite prospect thinks is: "How fast can I get to the NBA?" When prospects see teams like UK, Texas, Ohio State, North Carolina, etc putting kids in the NBA after their freshman or sophomore year they want to play for those schools. If IU wins the national championship this year players will depart for the NBA...if it becomes a trend then they will look at IU in the same light. The days of a four year player are becoming a rarity in college basketball.
  14. Coach Igel

    I think Mokris is the athletic director's choice for the head coaching position but I also think there might be some behind the scenes pushing for a more seasoned coach. This one may get into a tug of war.
  15. Coach Igel

    Mokris has not been hired...yet. He was set to be hired at the last school board meeting but the board tabled the hiring.
