I like the idea of playing the tournament on two Saturdays instead of one!

I do question that Neelyville was seeded over Clearwater because didn't Clearwater beat Neelyville 65-48 on Dec. 3rd. I might be wrong, but that's the score that was posted on mosports.

Yes Clearwater did beat Neelyville by 17 so I question this as well.

Sounds like the seedings are definitely debatable this season. Any predictions regarding which team will win the tournament?

Dexter is going to be tought to beat this year! I wouldnt count out New Madrid or Clearwater. Clearwater has sophomore who had around 40 points last nigth in clearwaters win over Lesterville.

Is Clearwater a serious contender for the state final four impax21?

Is it the Morris girl?

That I do not know. They definitely have potentialy. They are well coached however they dont have a deep bench.

-- Posted by impax21 on Fri, Dec 7, 2012, at 3:05 PM

Yes, I heard she has scored 30+ in all 3 clearwater victories this season.

-- Posted by impax21 on Fri, Dec 7, 2012, at 3:06 PM

But I dont see Dexter getting beat.

Morris has had games of 30, 36 and 39 points so far this year. In last night's game, she had eight 3s.

I think Neelyville was given a slight edge by the coaches over Clearwater based on a little harder schedule. Neelyville won the Lady Dawg Classic and has beaten Twin Rivers twice. Last night, they beat Twin Rivers after losing freshman point guard Shelby Moon to injury in the opening moments and Kayla Maupin had four fouls at halftime. All credit due though, Clearwater beat Neelyville handily Monday night.

Clearwater is very much improved but two of its wins were blowouts over East Carter and Lesterville.

Looks like the tournament should be a good one!

C'water is tough! They have all of their starters back from last year and they had a good team then too. Should have a good year.
