I do not think that Woodcock is at a different level than the West kid. Woodcock is a great shooter while West is more than that. I do not think that Marsh is MVP material. He is dominant in the box because of his size. I don't think he is MVP material until he can develop a jump shot. The teams that have had success against RBS have been able keep him away from the rim and then he hasn't been much of a threat. I also think that every district game during the tournament in this district will be a competitive game. Every one of the teams in District 6A is capable of winning a game
One thing I enjoy about this District is that every team has to come ready to play every District game, because any team in this District could win on any given night. There is no easy win game like in a lot of the Districts.
I agree with the fact that Silk is a very good ballplayer. He can play a lot bigger than he is and he can shoot or play post and he gives he gives 100% every game. I still disagree with Marsh being MVP. The only thing he has going for him is his height. I have watched him play several times and have not been very impressed with him. He does not have the supporting cast that Woodcock has and he has no choice but to try and do the majority of the scoring and the work. If Woodcock didn't have Silk or Ashlock or the rest of the good players he would or could score 50 points a game. I think that the Silk kid is closer to MVP than Marsh is. If he stays healthy I will give you another dark horse, Peyton West from Monterey. I have watched him play a couple of games and he is very good. I saw where he had 35 points last night against a good Gordonsville team. I was really shocked by the outcome of the Clarkrange / Pickett County game
Marsh is definitely not District MVP. Woodcock is twice the player that Marsh is, if he stays healthy he will be District MVP. Monterey's big guy was not aloud to play Friday night against RBS and they only beat Monterey by 1 point with a freshman guarding Marsh all night. Jackson may have beat Pickett County but anyone can loose on any given night so I believe Pickett is still a better ball team than Jackson County. I do agree that Trousdale is very athletic and could be dangerous for anyone to play and the same for Gordonsville. Jackson County is very well coached and could also be dangerous for anyone to play. Monterey when they shoot well is capable of beating any of these teams. I haven't seen Clarkrange play with all the starters back but without them I don't see them winning a District game. So I agree with Medalist, in this District no one is guaranteed a win while playing each other. Every game played should be fun to watch.
you were the one puzzled by the York loss not me so I was Just letting you know that just because a school is smaller does not mean that they can't compete with a larger school. I thought this was a discussion board doesn't really matter what class it is I was just discussing basketball I didn't mean to offend you
I have not has the opportunity to see RBS play yet. I know that Pickett County and Monterey could compete in 8AA. I know that Jackson County and Clarkrange have won games against 8AA teams this year I saw where Clay County came close to beating LA.
(Not sure the early games 8AA teams are playing are really telling us anything. With coaching and player changes around the district seems quite a bit of shake up with some programs. York appears to be playing some of the better competition early but their loss to Monterey was puzzling. Has Smith county really lost 4 games in this early season? LA has been up and down so far. I see Macon lost to Stone Memorial who also beat York. UHS is 4-1 only loss coming from Warren county who also beat Cannon. I did see UHS play Shelbyville Friday and was a bit surprised they may be better than I expected. They started 3 freshman and played 4 or 5 freshman total and only have 1 or 2 seniors on the team. With a 6'5" freshman and a 6'3" junior they have some size. Looking forward to the season kicking off and some district play to see how it all shakes out this season. ) Why are you puzzled by the York loss to Monterey. Looks like every team in 8AA has lost to a team in 6A, except UHS who hasn't played any of them and Macon County who hasn't played either of the top 6A teams. I believe the top 2 or 3 teams in 6A could easily compete in 8AA
