    Thoughts? Thinking this will be the game to watch first round.

    Macon County is going to give any team all they want in the first round. However I feel since MC doesn't have a complete stud scorer to match Luke Smith then he might be to much to handle as he is a true scorer surrounded by a good team. I will say Knox Catholic will win in the end but I will be pulling for MC!

    Catholic is very unselfish, as a team, they have close to 500 assist. People look at Smith's scoring but he averages 7 assist a game. Team averages around 72 ppg and gives up 48 ppg. I really don't know anything about Macon, to make an early prediction wouldn't be possible. To get here they must be a very talented team. Good luck next week to all teams.

    Macon has three aspects of thier game. First, the have 3 big kids down low. Not the tallest type kids but thick wide body football build types. They all three roate in and out and rebound well and score when needed. Secondly, they have guards that can shoot the three. About four kids play gaurd and they can all shoot it well from 3 point range. Third is the Carlisle kid. Very good athlete, strong gritty kid that can run and jump and battle with the best of him. If Macon is hot from outside, they are very dangerous. If not, they are very average.

    Most of the kids for catholic play football. A couple of them have already signed football scholarships. Should be a very intriguing match up.

    Macon has a great inside game and can shoot the three really good when hot. Ashburn and Carlisle are overall the best players. If they're hot, including Welch, I think Macon will win by 8.

    It's going to take Macon's game vs Tyner x2. Especially if Luke is on fire. I wouldn't be surprised if MC won just think Knox Catholic is the overall better team. Wish MC the best of luck!

    I actually hope MC wins it all since the ESPN Basketball Analyst Hyperquick called them weak as water.

    Hyperquick called them weak? Macon looks pretty strong to me.  They won 29 games and made it to state that is far from weak.

    Catholic has played a few teams with a good inside game this season. Sevier County, McCallie and Knoxville Christian (for people that may not know, Knoxville Christian has two post players that are 6'10 and 6'8.  Both being recruited by NCAA division 1 schools) Should be an interesting game between two really good teams.  I hope Jancek, Scott, and Anderson can rise to the challenge defensively of guarding their post players.
