    North Daviess Holiday Tournament Draw

    I agree. He has built onto his frame this summer and has started to be more willing to take the ball inside. He's tough, but will be a really solid 4 year D2 starter, or a good role guy at a low major. He's isn't strong enough yet to defend wings at the next level. He'll have to play the 3 in college because his lateral quickness isn't TOO great. His ceiling will grow as he adds muscle.

    Low major. Correct. LM, MM, HM are the shortcuts I use ha.

    FWIW, Davidson is a LM guy, which isn't bad. Might end up going D2 as he has a plethora of offers but only one D1 (Air Force).

    You're right. 6'2 SG Jack Townsend. He's a guy who can really get hot with his jumper. He will have the ball in his hand a lot for ND this year but in reality he is not a point guard. He can handle the ball but mentally he's an off guard. Plays with a ton of flair and flash and sometimes that can bite him.

    North Daviess Holiday Tournament Draw

    Going to be a fun tournament this year. Here are my thoughts on the first round match ups. Clay City vs. Pike Central Clay City was a rough team last year and only lost one senior. They struggled to score, at times against bad teams. I don't expect them to make a huge jump from last year and will be right around the same as last year. It's a rough time down in Clay City. Pike Central, on the other hand, played a pretty tough schedule last year and hung tough with some of the big boys. But, this year is a different story. They lose their top six scorers to graduation and there wasn't really anyone on the team that impressed last year other than a few of those seniors. Only one guy is coming back who played in more than eight games, and he averaged 2.1 points a game in 21 games. Watch for PC to struggled this year. This will be a close game, but it won't be a good one. Barr-Reeve vs. South Knox Barr-Reeve has a new coach this year as Bryan Hughes is out and Josh Thompson from Vincennes Lincoln takes over the reins. Don't expect many low scoring games from this Barr-Reeve team. They are going to look to go fast and they have the players to do it. Fresh off a semi-state appearance, Barr-Reeve doesn't lose any starters off that team. Barr-Reeve is a state championship favorite in 1A. South Knox is going to be pretty solid this year once again, but they do lose some key pieces. Brandon Fickling has graduated and they lose a few depth pieces. It will lead to some early season turmoil but after a few weeks, coach Burkett will have them firing on all cylinders. I don't think they are as strong as Barr-Reeve because they don't have the offensive firepower, but they'll hang around in this one for three quarters. Brownstown Central vs. FW Blackhawk Brownstown Central only loses one guy off of last year's 18-7 team. They are well coaches and generally are really solid every year. This year won't be an exception as they return the talent they need to succeed. You can imagine that BC will make a deep run in the postseason again this year. BC is a team that isn't going to have many off games so it is paramount that you play well against them. FW Blackhawk are the favorites for the 1A crown and don't be surprised if they meet Barr-Reeve there. FW Blackhawk has a ton of talent and it all starts with Caleb Furst, the big man inside who has high major offers already. Frankie Davidson is a long guard who is very good as well. This FW Blackhawk team can beat you in anyway and they are my early pick to win this tournament. Quite frankly, I honestly don't think they will have that tough of a time doing so. North Daviess vs. Loogootee This is an interesting game in many regards. North Daviess only loses one player from the squad last year so they are going to be a veteran bunch. They do have some talent, but it hasn't really showed that often in years past. I think that this is going to be a big year for them, maybe not in terms of winning 20 games, but you'll see progress. They are kind of searching for their identity. Loogootee is a team that has some talent but not enough. Silas Bauer is going to be a monster for them. He improved a ton over the summer and expect huge things from him. I think Loogootee could sneakily surprise some people this year. This is a game that I think they can win due to the talent at the top.

    Great win today. This isn't a bad loss for BC either. It will go down as a quality loss. This team could easily be 4-0.

    Well, they always say you have to wait til year 3 of a rebuild...I think this is year 1 since Brohm has only had one class in.

    Great, that makes two! Just looking to get some discussion going once we get to the season.

    So much negative. Do you guys think we would have won any of these games with Hazel? Or be even close to winning them? No way. Brohm knows what he's doing, at least give him a chance to get some of his own players in. Think Rondale Moore would have committed to Hazel? Nope. It's a fun product on offense right now when its clicking, Blough can actually throw the ball. The defense has 14 freshmen or sophomores in the rotation right now. Guess how many seniors? The defensive depth chart has 4 players from graduating year 2014/2015...and two of those are walk-ons. This year, not last year, is the rebuilding year. We were spoiled last year with 8 seniors, a weak B1G West, and a very good linebacking corp, who by the way Bentley is a beast and is tearing it up for the Patriots starting at LB. Just breathe, because it's not going to get any better for the basketball team.
  10. Would anyone be interested in a weekly voting poll for all four classes? Looking for 8-10 weekly voters. Votes would be needed to be in on Sunday and published on Monday. A top-10 for each of the classes. Let me know if you're interested!

    Linton has been extended an invite...but they do not want to join in football.

    Cascade to Join ICC 2019-2020

    I have heard some rumblings that it will be Crawfordsville. It’s the one that makes the most sense athletically and geographically.

    We will use this as our catch all this year. I was a little late to getting it posted but alas, in this instance it’s better late than never. Some interesting match-ups kick the season off. (my predicted winners in bold) Crawfordsville at Greencastle, 7 pm Danville at Cascade, 7 pm Edgewood at Mitchell, 7 pm Edinburgh at Brown County, 7 pm North Central at West Vigo, 7 pm North Montgomery at North Putnam, 7 pm Owen Valley at Vincennes Lincoln, 7 pm South Putnam at Cloverdale, 8 pm Sullivan at North Knox, 7 pm Terre Haute North at Northview, 7 pm Looking forward to some good discussion for this conference.

    CIC #1 vs #2

    Frankton deserved it, although 10 times I would bet these two split it. Caleb Middlesworth fouling out definitely didn't help and the game was played much closer than the final score. Landon Weins is really, really good. Frankton wanted it more tonight.

    Not sure if this will help or not but I write for a scouting site covering all aspects of Indiana basketball and did this article back in November. https://www.prephoops.com/2017/10/best-small-school-gyms-indiana/
