Was Bearden at full strength roster-wise against Maryville?  Little surprised that Maryville beats them, although as long as the Rebels have Joe Anderson out there, nothing will completely shock me.

WB loses a key contributor for the remainder of the season.  Looks like senior Destin Deering is moving out of state during Christmas break.  

 

Bearden is missing Pember until January. Maryville has definitely missed Kimble but he will be back soon. We played a lot of youngens last night.

Joe played good team ball last night and led the team and didn’t force things. It was a quiet 30 pts. Bearden played tough D out top which opened up the dribble drive. When #24 checked himself out of the contest, the middle opened up a little for MHS. It was a playoff atmosphere. Bearden needs to scout the officials. When I walked in the gym for the ladies game, the people I sit with had the scouting report on the crew. Just watching them call the girls game should be a tip off.

I’ve never seen Joe not play a team game. Rarely forces anything and does a GREAT job leading the Rebs. He plays such a complete game and still has a mid-range game which is seldom seen.

I’m probably the only Irish fan that loves watching Joe play....

As a neutral fan here, I thought the officiating was pretty one sided especially in the first half. 4 technical fouls in a half? I’m still confused bout what each one was about. If Maryville can win at Bearden, I will be shocked. And I doubt those refs will be apart of that game. When do they play again?

Great win for Maryville. Anderson gets all the pub- deservedly so, he is the MVP of district, IMO- but Gale is as good of a pure shooter as I have seen at Maryville. When those two are hot and knocking down 3’s, they can beat anybody on a given night.

Bearden had 12-0 and 13-0 runs in the game and still lost. They are very talented but they lose focus on both ends of the court and have too many intensity lapses for a team with their experience, imo. 

As for officiating, Red Rebels is exactly correct about the crew. When one particular ref who will remain nameless shows up like he did last night, the officials always seem to be the center of attention, regardless of what teams are playing. IMO, it’s not a good thing when the officiating crew is so noticeable and when this particular official is there, officiating always seems to be VERY noticeable.

One of the most exciting basketball games I ever seen.  Maryville has a scrappy team. I went to game last night expecting Maryville to get beat.  Bearden had everyone back from last year. Joe Anderson was best player on the court.

That guy is the worst official in East TN. If I was coaching, I would prefer a 2 man crew. Pay him and let him go home. He would want to stay though so he could make it about himself.

The sad part is I think he is actually a pretty good ref when he sticks to calling the game and doesn’t try to become the center of attention.

I know firsthand from playing and then watching HS basketball for many years that it can get very emotional, especially when the gym is packed and two rivals are playing. Coaches and players have to keep their poise, especially when you have an officiating crew that is known for calling T’s.  

Cutting to the chase........for Bearden fans that think they might have gotten a raw deal last night because of the technicals just remember that Maryville got two critical T’s called on them in last year’s game at Maryville in the fourth quarter for trash talking to Bearden. The moral of the story is pretty simple- just shut up and play basketball.
