8aabasketballfan replied to RCcoach15's topic in Girls BasketballHas anyone heard if there will be any changes in 8aa before next season? Or is anyone really on the hot seat?
I don’t understand it either. I have watched that group of juniors from Cannon play in Livingston the past couple of years in the summer and they are legit. I’m not sure what the problem is. I wished 8AA would go back to a standard bracket also 1-8, 2-7, 3-6 and 4-5 only logical and fair way in my opinion. I think the tournaments is Macon’s to lose.
Well after the first round of district play is complete last week here’s my two cents on things. Macon is very well coached and strong but not deep. They could contend for a State Championship this season. The loss to Upperman was unexpected to me. Upperman is another team that’s very well coached but not as strong as they have been in years past. When it gets tournament time they will be in the mix. I didn’t see them beating Macon but they did. Dekalb in my opinion is playing a little better than to be expected. I think they are talented but not as well as other teams in the district. Hopefully They didn’t peak to early. Livingston is another team that’s coached well but the talent level at this time is not as strong as it has been. They could definitely be a spoiler in the district to someone by years end. York has two of the top players in the district but continue to lay egg after egg. I feel like the caliber of coaching is a lot of the problem there. Cannon unfortunately is the biggest disappointment in the district. This team is very talented and at the same time very inconsistent from one game to the next. Which falls on the shoulders of the coaching staff. Smith isn’t as talented as years past. They also have a new coach which I feel will have them headed in the right direction very soon. Especially after the game against Dekalb. Watertown is probably the youngest team in the district along with their coach. It will take them a couple years to get things headed in the right direction in a very competitive 8AA district. Where they could pull an upset any given night.
