District 8AA

Recommended Posts

Super young, have freshman coming off the bench, 2 seniors that start but don't have experience when it comes to pressure. This group didn't see much court time last year behind a group of 6 seniors. Most of the losses came in games that were in Christmas Tournament play. Losses were close and came at the end.

York is a very talented, well balanced team that can compete with about anyone.

Watertown starts 4 seniors. They're scrappy and tough to put away. They defend well and just keep coming at you. York swept them relatively easily. They played LA within single digits all 3 games, but lost each time. They split with UHS winning by 10 in Watertown. 

What happened with Cumberland Co during that 8 game losing stretch in the middle of the season? All of their game scores look close except for those 2 blowout losses to Stone, but they're overall record is obviously less than stellar.

Upperman has no real issue with Livingston and led wire to wire. Sells was fairly quite he had 3 points in the 1st half. I think Rush had 14 rebounds at half time. Time for the region.

Upperman will be significantly better this season than they were last year with a deeper bench. I have not really kept up with the rest of the district. I know LA, Watertown and YI lost quality players to graduation. LA still has Sells. Dekalb and Cannon should be improved.

Predictions for 2019-2020? 

1. Upperman is going to win it all. Return 4 of the starting 5 and added a big from a different country and his dad played at TTU

2. York lost some players, but return Smith and Meadows. Still a very big team. The freshman point guard last year should be much improved this season.

3. LA still has the best player in the district and a great coach that will find ways to get him the ball, but I know they lost a lot of starters.

4. Watertown lost a lot of players and starters, but they return their PG. Other than him I am not sure what else they have.

From there on out I am not real sure how the district will shake out because I do not know what the other teams are returning, but I do know Smith County with Sanders at the helm will be much improved and better coached and they had some kids come out and make the team that can play well. I could see them surprising some people this season. Not real sure how Sanders in Dekalb will do. He lost a lot of seniors after winning  a few games but when they played Smith last year his team did not seem to have the energy his teams at Smith had, but I hope he does well down there. Anyone got anything on Macon, Dekalb, or Cannon? Smith has a few good players, but they have not played in years and most are in football right now.
