Big 9 Confrence

Recommended Posts

A first stepping stone for Dobyns-Bennett begins this week. AND NO I am not speaking of tuesday vs. Tenn. High. I am talking about Sullivan East. DB should roll over Tenn. High with there great defense and pure shooters from the outside. The East game should be exciting cause East ALWAYS has a great crew of people to come out and support against the Indians. The one thing that DB can do to slow East's offense down is with their great TEAM defense. DB will use both Sylvester and Halvorsen to slow down Snapp. Both of these guys do a good job of denying players the ball to the best players DB has played thus far. It will come down to them on Snapp, if they can play the kind of defense they are capable of, then this could be another blowout to add to Dobyns-Bennett's list. Any other thoughts?

I have to agree fanofall that the DB-East game will be an exciting one. I expect that Sylvester will step up and have an outstanding game. Halvorsen is always in the action as is Flackk. East I think will hold their own for a while but depending on East's offense and if they are "on" that will be the tale. I think this will be the matchup to watch for sure. I don't think it will be a blow out though.

lol Just cannot stand it can you? Just had to throw some bait out there, right? lol And I'm the one that gets accused of starting trouble. Well, I'll leave the comments to others for now. What say you CAP? Whats your opinion on this matter? Oh, and CAP, your comments on the Vikings defense and Cradic seemed to play out.

 

I say the Falcons didn??™t disappoint. They still have that physical play approach, but they got back just as much as they gave in this game and they should probably expect the same from any of the top teams in our conference. We know that in order to win a game at Volunteer you have to keep the score to the point that the officials cant be a factor. We ended the first half leading in fouls (against the Bruisers of Volunteer) 10 to 3 and at least one of the calls against Volunteer was an obvious makeup call at the end of the half (but that is just my opinion). The Facts are that Cradic scored 30 on us because our mulish coach has insisted on using the same feebleminded approach that has now lost us two games and allowed South to make a game out of what started out (and should have ended up as) a rout. And its not just the zone??¦its his choices on who takes the assignment that is costing us. He??™s starting to remind me of the infamous Captain Ahab (in the story of Moby Dick for those who dont know)??¦and we all know how his ???season??? ended. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> In all fairness though, now is the time to pull out the patented Viking Zone. We cant run with DB or SHHS so its time to slow the pace. Uh oh??¦maybe I shouldnt have said that. /huh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":huh:" border="0" alt="huh.gif" /> I guess we will try to man up now. /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" />

 

Volunteers point guard Bennett also had a great game. One of the best we have faced this year.

Blackjack54 "On the team/bench and on the floor are two entirely different things futurecougardad. It's my opinion that the boys from Blountville can outplay the Holston boys at the high school level. "

 

My point exactly Jack out of the 10-11 players that are ON THE COURT for Central, 4 are from Blountville, the other 7 are from Holston. You're going to be hardpressed to win this debate.

I think Bennett gets overlooked alot because of Cradic, but you are correct, he is an excellent player.

I dont think you could say that neither Holston nor Blountville are spewing out the talent so whats the point. Is Vaughn getting ready to retire or something?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Coach Vaughn has 10-15 more years of coaching in his system.

I predict that DB will have an easier time with East than with THS. The reason is style of play. DB is going to come straight at you and challenge you to match their talent and size (same as Science Hill), and I think everyone outside of Bluff City (and many inside) knows that that aint gonna happen. With East as I said before the season (and I still stick to it) if you stop Snapp you beat East. Coach Morgan has more than enough defensive weapons at his disposal, (Sylvester usually being the weapon of choice) and unlike Witcher he knows who and how to use them. THS on the other hand has been able to take DB away from their fast pace style and has made them set up the half court offense. So don??™t be surprise if your game doesn??™t end up more like DB vs Volunteer more so than ours.

There you go, throw that famous big 9 half court game at the Indians. Slow it down "Big 9 style" Oldschool. /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />

Cappy... nice to see you on the board again. I just knew you would say something about the physical play of which there was none in the game last Friday. I do thank you for the compliments on Cradic and Bennett. Bennett has a long way to go before he is one of the Big 9 favorite PG's. I have talked with him about a few things he needs to clean up, like at the end of the game (2 To's) that a seasoned PG would never do. The game was not physical in the least bit. So that old stuff of how we play is not valid any longer. We have young guys who play hard, not dirty. I will not even go into detail of what confrontation at the end of the game with #25 (TN High) was about, or do you want to tell everyone what he did to Cradic? Look....the game is just that.....a game. I will not accuse any coach unless it can be proven for dirty play. Central is finess, DB & Science Hill is fast paced tempo, East is scrappy for 32 minutes, South is South, Boone is fundamentalist, Crockett is learning, TN High is smart and methodical, and Volunteer is hard-nosed. Country boys are just like that. Your analogy on TN High vs. DB & Science Hill is correct. The 2-3 zone will work to slow the game down. Corey (TN High) is an outstanding player but can get lost in the mix of things from time to time. He has to learn to take control of the game and impose the tempo and style of play that his team needs. He did it in spurts against us Friday, but he is good enough to do it all the time. That is what I'm trying to get Bennett to understand, your team goes as the PG goes. Control the tempo and you control the game. Anyways...... Good luck the rest of the season!!!! God Bless!!!!!
