CIC weekly-ish thread

Recommended Posts

Alexandria beat an awful Muncie Burris team. Alexandria moved the ball well and shot selection was better. 

Alexandria cannot rebound, box out nor move their feet down low. Muncie Burris had a kid that got atleast 20 of his 25 in the paint.

I really enjoyed the conversation on here, but have been away due to a stroke I suffered 4 weeks ago today. I'm still pretty limited due to left side in attention and vision problems  that make working my I Pad very difficult. I have not been able to attend any Bruin games since Jan. 16th. We have slid a lot, but you can't lose a player as talented as Luke Brown and maintained the level we played at early in the season. Bruins travel to Daleville tonight. I hope they can find some scoring punch and step up the perimeter defense. I have a lot of faith in the players and coaches that they will successfully adapt to recent challenges.

Old Bruin first off glad your doing ok and hope for a speedy recovery!

Blackford has had great year and should be happy at the year so far. As you said it becomes a struggle when a player of that level goes down. Hopefully he comes back stronger!

Good to hear from you Old Bruin. Take it easy and get better.  

I have missed your insight into what happening up north in the CIC.

Alex survived last night at Eastern.  A weird game, both teams couldn't get in a flow.  Dont think the officiating crew have worked together much,  their game seemed off also.

It was nice to see Alex survive the Eastern runs and not panic and turn it into a track meet.  I felt everyone contributed in one way or another.

They will have to play team ball if they want to have a chance against Frankton on friday.

Giant I agree. Alexandria's leader shared the ball a little more and kept everyone involved. They have got to figure out something with their interior presence. Very weak! Need to find someone who can rebound with 2 hand and block out. Team definitely lacks strength.

Alexandria always seems to play to their level of talent.

Only 3 conference games left, all of them are tomorrow night.  Frankton should win their last 3 games if they can get past Alex in the jungle Friday.  It's always hard to win there.  Good luck to FHS Lady Eagles Saturday at Semi-State too!!!!!

Last time Frankton went to the Jungle 27 3's were made between the 2 teams. Shot the lights out.

I see Frankton winning this one by 14-18. Alex does not have the paint players that Frank ton does. That will be the difference in the game. If you cannot block out and rebound you cannot win against the likes of Frankton.

Ok after looking at matchups and seeing where the teams are headed I see:

Frankton by 18

Oak Hill by 26

Miss by 21

Frankton wins this on the boards by boxing out and rebounding with 2 hands. Alexandria will have to be on fire to keep this competitive. 

Oak Hill will use this game to get sharp for sectionals. Elwood hustles but won' be close unless Oak hill rest some of their players.

Ole Miss I see using this to get back on track and make a statement.

Frankton by 8. Frankton killed Alexandria on the important rebounds. Game was close early due to Alex shooting better than usual. Frankton controlled game from then on out. Morehead kept it close. Alex had a chance till one of their bigs on 2 straight possessions tried to press the ball and got stripped both times and that was the game.

Excellent draw for Frankton in the sectional, they're on the opposite side of the bracket from Lapel and Wapahani.  Monroe Central and Sheridan should be rather easy wins, but you never know in the postseason.

Is it true that Alex missed a shot and still got awarded 2 points on Friday night against FHS?  The heraldbulletin.com was tweeting about it during the game.

Yes it was during the very fast pace 1st. It hit the net and looked like it went through. Game was better than I thought it would be. Alexandria shot and handled ball great until 4th. Frankton played well. Good luck to them in sectional and beyond. 

Only issue I had with Frankton was their fans. Not all but a select few like 4 where arguing with Alex student section.

Alexandria is a solid team. Seem to be playing well right now. Tipton is dealing with some injuries/sickness lately. Hopefully ready to roll on Tuesday.

You would think but strange things happen come tournament time. We got upset by MG in the Sectional Championship in 2015. Alex is every bit as good as they were that year.

Wow ...Its the last weekend of regular season for basketball.  This season flew by!  Its a strange time when you realize that after next week 75% of the teams will be putting on their cleats.  A hard time for Seniors, when they clean out the basketball locker for the last time.  Keep them in your thought.

Good luck to all CIC team in the upcoming week.

Frankton scrapes by for the win against Sheridan 56-54.  Surprising, I thought the Eagles would've won by 20.

MG got a big win over Monroe Central

Elwood got crushed by Heritage Christian

Blackford beat APA

Eastbrook beat South Adams

Alex beat Wes-Del

OH beat Northfield by 40

Sectionals here we come!
