  1. The Milan adminisration has not wanted a basketball program in Milan due to the football coaches wanting kids to only play football. Remember Jerry McQuire, SHOW ME THE MONEY! How much has Milan spent on foot ball and how much have they spent on basketall? Enough said ! Milan does not do the tings with kids to promote basketball like other area schools that are highly successful. It is not allowed !
  2. I.m thinking Westview wins, and it will not be that close. GC also gets Summertown.
  3. If you will buy me a couple of grilled chicken sandwiches, I'll try and tech you how to eat during the game.
  4. Seems older refs call a foul if you just get your hands up, whether you touch someone or not and whether they are in position or not. Younger officials seem to have adjusted to the improved athletic ability of the girls and seem to let them play. I have a few of the older guys in mind that I just hate to see show up at the game I choose to attend that night. They should watch film. I did it for a while and it is tough, but it makes it easier and the coaches respect you a lot more, if you hustle to get in position.
  5. And S Gibson did defeat Crockett in OT last night
  6. Macey Lee will not win Miss Basketball in this group. She may very well win it though, as she is now in Division II.
  7. What city is this St. Agnes team from? I know there is one in New York, Houston and St Paul.
  8. I think Eagleville is returning all their players also. State tourney may be most competitive ever in A.
  9. With all of the already mentioned teams, add Greenfield and Memphis Hillcrest. Hillcrest is young and after the initial shock played Greenfield pretty even @ Greenfield.
  10. Will do GF. I have actually been to a few Greenfield games. Went to Bethel last night and watched Loretto and Summertown again. Great game. Summertown had their chance to win, missed a few free throws. I thought the big girl for Summertown should have been involved more offensively. When she wanted to be involved, she was hard to handle. You shoot when you are 3 feet from the goal and that big. Summertown is scrappy. Loretto is long. They cover a lot of ground in the 1-3-1 and 2-3 zones. Either team will be difficult to eliminate. I think Greenfield scores more consistently. Weathers is automatic from the free throw line.
  11. Weathers is a great freshman talent. She reminds me a lot of a younger T. Darby. She is not as seasoned as Tess or Chloe at this point. Loretto as a team doesn't handle the ball well enough to beat Greenfield. Loretto's size could give GC problems. But again they better handle the ball better. Summertown is also pretty solid. Could upset Loretto in region finals.
  12. Wish I could, I will be on my way to Texas. I will be tuning in on the radio. Pulling for your girls!
  13. Not sure why Huntingdon folks want to get rid of Coach Lowery. Not too many people have been to multiple schools, built programs from the ground up, sustained them once they get there and end up with over 800 wins.
  14. Got to attend a drawing a few years ago. Had a basket full of names. Little kid drew them out. 1st name goes in the top of the bracket and they work their way down in order unless 2 teams from the same region are drawn, then the 2nd team goes in the opposite bracket.
  15. I think 93.7 FM from Milan will have the game.
  16. Same thing in the 8th grade. Best back to back classes since 98-99
  17. I don't see Morris leaving until the current 8th grade group, along with the current Freshman group pass thru. Most talent in a while in those 2 groups. May dry up a little after that.
  18. Been saying this for years. Until schools band together and pull out of TSSAA and form another association, it will never change. Let them have football if they want it so bad. They are so dumb. The reason attendance is down is they have for the most part done away with all of the rivalries. Rivalries are bigger when the schools compete in the same districts and regions and are the same basic size in all sports. Not just football. Take away some money and watch them change.
  19. SGC lost their best outside shooter in the Dyersburg game. Was at the game last night in a wheelchair. However SGC still has the capability to pull this off. SGC post player must have a good offensive night and the 3 point shooters need to make some shots. Shutes is the key for Haywood. SGC must keep Haywood off of the offensive boards. If Smith and others get stick backs consistently SGC is done. Turnovers must be eliminated for both teams. Haywood really locked down on Covington the 2nd half. Covington only had 3 points in the 3rd and 5 in the 4th, after having a 30-22 half time lead. Should be a great game that should be within 8 points either way.
  20. Not that I am a fan of all of the decisions made by the T$$AA, but if the rule existed before the decision was made, this is a case of "better to ask forgiveness than permission". Doesn't work at a real job either.
  21. Thing called entitlement.
  22. Remembering back, Martin tore an ACL and was not ready to play her freshman year, out of shape, attitude, etc, she sat, didn't like it, and quit. Did the coach sit her, yes. So I guess it was the coaches fault. Aly was playing in spring practice after her Freshman year, turned an ankle pretty bad. Her dad says no more basketball. Softball is Aly's ticket, not basketball. Aly and coach Volbert got along great. By the way Aly is going to UT Chat not UTM. Kristen is no where near H. Butler. Not even close to many good players that have been in the area recently either. She is an athlete for sure. Can score by driving and rebounding. Can't shoot from past 8 feet out. Better learn to shoot before D1 takes any looks. Carla is a very good coach. Moma's wanted her when Volbert was hired. Thinking Volbert was setup. Although Carla is coming in at a good time with coaching changes at Milan, Dyersburg, Crockett & Obion and the talent levels at those have also fallen, it should be SGC and Westview at the top. Keep in mind momas there is a big difference in beating Dyer, Humboldt, Spring Hill, Rutherford, Milan, etc that competing as a state tourney contender. It takes 2 D1 players and a few Jr college players on 1 team to be a AA state contender in this day and time. Hope is a D1 prospect. Kristen is not there yet. Sara Grace is not D1, but could play at a small school. Chyna has not shown anything yet, so that is to be seen. Would not count on playing in the Boro just yet, no matter what the momas do. AA is not what it once was in this area. Volleyball and softball have taken a bite. Notice the single A schools have not fallen off. Most do not have volleyball, some not softball. Basketball takes a lot of work and heart. VB is a much easier path. GC has the best setup for success. They have so many feeder schools giving so many players valuable experience and being smaller schools, allows coaches to have more individual time and also start kids earlier to develop their skills.
  23. Depends on if they would have remained AA, with the combined enrollment. Might have went to AAA
  24. 42 there was talk last year that the GC middle schools were going to combine. Rutherford, Dyer, Yorkville/SpringHill, is this coming true anytime soon? I think it would be a mistake for basketball. Maybe other sports OK. If it ain't broke why fix it
