    Lol! Cox didn’t even play half of most games. Which didn’t make any sense to me? A lot of you don’t know but we will get a guard transfer in. I’ll stand by my comments and say our guard play will be better next year regardless if Cox plays. Next January we can revisit this conversation. For the record I hope he plays.

    Capable ball handlers join the squad? So you think we don't have anyone that can handle the ball next year? Interesting that your hating on the guards but our worst statistic was opponents offensive rebounding. Our opponents were plus +10 in offensive rebounding category (in district losses). We had a couple of problems last year but to blame it all on the guards alone is foolish. Next year our guard play will be much better with or without Cox. Remember we had two starting guards that didn't average 10 points combine. I think with another year under their belts the starting guards we have coming back will be much better. Only time will tell but we shall see.

    Do you know why he was rumored not to play? His parents did not like one of the previous coaches. That problem has been corrected. He's playing AAU basketball this summer so I expect him to be back. Plus I expect a surprise or two before next season starts. People forget that the Junior and sophomore classes a few years back won back to back middle school Championships in the highest division on the East Tennessee side. Alcoa has plenty of talent at the school and should be much better next year.

    You can add Trey West, Keithon Foster, Jashaun Fender, and Conner Haskell were all seniors according to the tssaa. This district will be much more competitive top to bottom.

    Can't disagree with you really but historically Alcoa has better talent than Morristown East. That's where you're not factoring in better talent and better coach = better team.

    We shall see Turtle, AE had 7 seniors and Fulton had 6. Alcoa will have a chance to win this district next year IMO.

    I will say that our guard play was very inconsistent last year. I would not call it horrific. We split with AE in the regular season and they beat us in a close one in the district tournament. Don't forget that two sophomore guards scored 22 points in the second half to help us beat Scott County in the district tournament. These two guards should be much better next year.

    Really? Do you know who we hired?

    Lol! Turtle you know this hire could effect district 4AA for years. The new coach has some good talent to work with next year as well. Things should get interesting next year.

    Well they are keeping it under wraps for some reason. That makes me think it could be someone that slipped under the radar that know one saw coming (possibly).

    Heard from a reliable source that a coach will be named Friday.

    Well you are correct we really don't know but we do know names. Just trying to be respectful of the coaches that have applied. The only thing I'm going to predict is we are going to get a good coach.

    I’m expecting it will be next week or the week after. Would be a little shocked if it’s after Easter.

    Red Rebel, wanted to respond to this the other day but wanted to make sure I got the stats right. This team in 3 years went 96-11 with 3 state appearances, 1 Runner up, and 1 State Championship. Remarkable run for a school that had less than 400 students at the time. This team was givin the nickname mighty mites in 1965. The reason being is their tallest player was 6’2.

    That’s a tricky question and I’ll refrain from giving my opinion. As for your second question, the kid played basketball at Alcoa as an 8th grader. He was the best player on the team then. If you have followed Alcoa basketball the last few years you should know.
