Wow,  UTRok. Picking Smith would be a huge upset even though Macon is way down. 

I figured it for a toss up and thought everyone would pick Macon so I went with Smith. Both will have to shoot it well to win.

What is going on with Dekalb, after watching them again last night. Look totally undisciplined,  playing with no passion.  Hopefully things turnaround.  Anybody else's thoughts who also attended last night.

Played a little harder, I think, but gotta clean up the mistakes. And York is pretty good, a good shooting team.  DC couldn't  buy a 3 and York couldn't miss 1. I feel like maybe when Poss comes back he can be the leader they need and settle some things down,  Looks like right now LA,  Upperman,  York and maybe Watertown yare going to be tough outs for everybody else.

LA margin over Upperman shocked me. Reynard you may be right about those 4 teams. They might be the best 4, but still to early. Poss coming back will definitely help Dekalb.

I still aint sure if some take plays off or don't know exactly what to do. Whichever it is, I  think that makes them undisciplined.  And they aint good enough to overcome a bad shooting night, yet,

Right now it looks like  in some order LA/Upperman are 1-2 and York/Watertown 3-4 but still a lot of BB to play,

UTrok didn't see that happening.  What happened.  

LA was very physical and UHS wasn't ready for it. The Sells kid is good he had 31 and LA is pretty athletic. LA plane old punched them in the mouth and they didn't respond. UHS had a terrible shooting night but the defense had something to do with that. UHS is at York next Friday looking forward to seeing York play.

I actually thought they played harder against York than they had been. They played man for the first time but were out of position some. That should improve if they continue to play it. York was by far the best team DC has played to date. York lit it up in the first half to build the lead. Second half was even. Apart from York coming back to earth from 3 in the second half, the biggest difference seemed to be in the way the first and second half were officiated. Refs allowed York to play very physical defense in the first half (led to a lot of TO and few FT) and began calling it closer in the second (less TO and more FT).

After 6 games into the season, I haven't seen DC have a good shooting night. Van Buren was an outlier because of so many lay ups. As bad as DC is with ball security, I am not surprised by their record. The 2 senior guards that started last year have not shot it nearly as well as they did a year ago. A lot can change by adding back a starter like Poss who seems to keep his composure and will pull some of the defense focus away from others. We will learn a lot Friday when they play Watertown. Until discipline and shooting improve, I think that is the battle for 4th. If they don't take care of the ball and shoot better than they have Tuesday at LA could be another long night. That said, we are due to shoot better.
