Here is the Woodland Tournament Seeds:
2. Scott City
3. Oak Ridge
7. Meadow Heights
I give Leopold an edge but I think any of the top 4 are capable of winning the championship.
I agree Ronnie1, but I am surprised that Perryville fell to the #4 seed. They had such a good team last season. Anyone know the dates on this tourney?
The date for the tourney is: November 26th - 30th.
I haven't heard the schedule of the games yet.
Should be a good tournament. Good luck to all for a safe and successful season.
Leopold is the clear favorite here.
Don't know how Scott City got the two seed as I would give the edge to Oak Ridge and Perryville over them. Without Fortner and Essner Scott City is going to be really small in the front court.
I predict Oak Ridge over Scott City by 8-10, but a lot of it depends on how each team defends the other.
Perryville will be the surprise team of the tournament. I don't think they bring back any varsity players from last year, but they do bring up a really talented group from their JV. They have a 6'7-8 kid named Shurmer(spelling) who might be the second or third best player in the field.
I think experience will get them in the second round against Leopold, who should win by 15-20.
Leopold will beat Oak Ridge by 5-10 for first
Perryville's size will get to Scott City in the third place game.
Woodland should win the consolation side with a young team, but wouldn't be surprised to see a well coached Delta team pull it off.
asd...SC would be small even with Fortner and Essner. Fortner is only 6'1" and Essner is 5'9". Not alot of help size wise but I agree 100%, they will definately be missed along with the other 5 seniors who have decided not to play this year.
Last years returning starters have improved greatly and imo can play with anyone. It will all hinge on who can step into the other two starting roles. I think my son, Jesse, will be leaned upon to play a different role this year because of our lack of size. He's grown and is a bit over 6' now and probably will be giving up the PG spot. Time will tell.
SC should be fun to watch this year. We will miss Zach for sure but I think we'll do well even without him. As I said before, we won't be quite as dependant on one player. That's just my opinion, I'm not bashing Cotner. He was an awesome player and as athletic as almost anyone in the area. Robert's leadership will be missed immensly also.
Ronnie1, why are so many seniors not playing this season after the great season SC had last year?
It's not just the seniors Preach...only 3 juniors and 3 sophs too...6 freshmen. No idea what the reason is. Some of those seniors have been playing since third grade and to quit as a senior???????????
So how many boys are playing ball at Scott City this year? Do they have enough for a JV and a Varsity?
Barely...17 total. 4 seniors, 3 juniors, 3 sophmores, 7 freshmen. They had their annual "blue/gold" scrimmage last night and they looked pretty good I thought. The seniors really shined.
Any thoughts on how the first night went?
I thought Woodland showed alot of improvement. They played with Perryville. If they could have cut down on the turnovers and made a few easy shots they very well could have pulled off the upset. The new coach at Woodland will have them competeing as the season goes on.
What are the thoughts on the games tonight?
Oak Ridge vs Delta?
Woodland vs Zalma?
Oak Ridge should win I think. That game will tell me alot about them. If they win big they'll give SC a challenge. If its a squeaker I'll be a bit more confident.
Woodland should beat Zalma to set up probably a Woodland/Delta consolation game.
Oak Ridge should pull this one out, even though they will be shorthanded tonight.
Their 6'5-6 Center (not Below) will be out tonight, he is out of state with something to do with a college he is going to. Thats just what I heard over Thanksgiving break. He will be back for Thursdays game.
It may be closer than originally thought, especially if Oak Ridge gets into foul trouble, but i think Deltas lack of depth will prove costly in the end.
Any news tonite? OR/Delta etc...
72 to 34 or 35.
Delta only had 5 players, OR only pressed about a qrtr and a half, otherwise it would have been really ugly. 23-5 after the first qrtr. I don't have a count but three players had to have 20 or right at it. Below dominated both sides of the floor, showed his athleticism with a two handed slam in the second qrtr.
The refs let a lot of fouls go, which they should have, so that delta wouldn't foul all their guys out. Definitely not griping about anything, I'm glad they called it the way they did, just pointing out that it did have something to do with the final score.
On another note, if someone is looking for a coach, they would be crazy to not call Deltas coach at the end of the year. For only having five guys, they were extremely disciplined on offense and played as well as they could on the other end.
Who is coaching at Delta now?
The Semo preview says jimmy johnson
Sounds like SC will be the underdog Thursday vs. OR.
Prediction: SC over OR by 12!
I say SC over OR by 5 or less.
Looks as if most out here might give the edge to OR but w/o Fortner I say its a toss up.
I believe Leopold, SC and Oak Ridge are all capable of beating each other on a given night.
Any thoughts on the games for this evening?
Delta vs Meadow Heights
Leopold vs Perryville
SC vs Oak Ridge
Delta by 10
Leopold by 15
OR by 7
Woodland Tournament Games Tonight
Consolation Game @ 5:00 Woodland vs Meadow Heights
3rd Place Game @ 6:30 Perryvile vs Oak Ridge
Championship Game @ 8:00 Leopold vs Scott City
Woodland over MH (-10)
Oak Ridge over P'ville (+12)
Leopold and SC (I honestly think its a toss up, hinging on wether SC can slow down Kyle. I know he won't be shut down but for SC to win he must be slowed down. Also we need to step up the offense and have more guys contribute offensively.)
What are your thoughts?
Good morning to you as well.
Woodland over MH by 15
Pville over Oak Ridge by 7. I think Oak Ridge will be some what back on track tonight but not fully.
The Leopold and SC game will be a good one. It could go either way. We had a balanced scoring game last night which we needed. It's always good to get everyone invloved. Kyle will be up for the game i'm sure. He always looks forward to playing against SC. I'm sure coach D will have something in mind to try and slow him down.
How's Jesse this morning?
Good luck tonight. I hope both teams play hard win or lose and it's a good game.
It will be hard fought I think either way. Jesse is fine, thanks. He needs to gorge on some bananas and pedialite before tonite's game! Hopefully that will fix the cramping problem.
Good luck tonite and pray for an injury free game.
