    North Daviess Holiday Tournament Draw

    I see. You are probably right, but I really like his game and think he might rise some this year. What I saw was good size, athleticism, and a great shooter for the 2 position in college. Maybe people are thinking he would have trouble guarding smaller guards. He is probably too small to play the 3 at MM or HM.

    Heck, one or both of them will probably lose before the final game anyway 🙂 Blackhawk did play great in the tournament last year but I saw them in other games (via youtube) where they didn't look as good. Watch the game where they lost to Southwood in the semi state and you may give BR a slight chance. Of course Furst is being recruited by IU and Purdue has already offered him and you don't see that kind of talent at the 1A level very often, and Davidson is probably mid major D1 so....

    Blackhawk graduated the good point guard and their center Thompson. BR returns everyone and adds two very good freshmen. I think BR will be way better than they were at the GPB tourney last year and Blackhawk won't be as strong. This is assuming Blackhawk hasn't added players as commonly happens in Fort Wayne. I expect BR would have more trouble with Davidson than Furst.

    Mason, that is a good review of the match ups. I have to disagree that Blackhawk will just run through the tournament again. They shot it outstanding last year and kind of intimidated the other teams a bit with their size. The other teams will be better prepared this year and nobody shoots it like they did last year all the time. I'm not sure Brownstown has the size or talent to beat them but they might. North Daviess matches up better with them and could also pull off the upset. I don't think Loogootee could hang with them. I don't know if they have had any "additions" to the team or not. If not I think Barr-Reeve might be better than them in terms of depth. If it comes down to BR vs Blackhawk again this year, I think Barr-Reeve will win.
  5. Great draw for the 1st day. It's Clay City vs Pike Central Barr-Reeve vs South Knox Brownstown vs Blackhawk Christian North Daviess vs Loogootee That is the correct bracket alignment. The games wont be played in that order on day 1. Should be 4 competitive games.

    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.

    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".

    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.

    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".

    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.

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

    I'll agree it shouldn't.

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