I'd love to have more love for the old alma mater. They do return some pretty good players (Parsons, Herbert, Cockman) However, I don't think they'll be able to replace what Cheek and Watt brought to the table. Especially Watt. That guy did all the dirty work.Chute,
No love for returning conference champs?
I don't know how in the world I forgot about Headen. You're right, he was a very unsung guy. I think he slipped my mind because he and Herbert were virtually the same player.Don't forget about Silas Headen. He was kind of unsung as the point guard. Cole will be missed and you are right Jordan did the dirty work. Not sure how coach will use the ones coming up from jv. Should be able to run with anybody but could get hurt on the boards.
Thomasville will b
Thomasville will be very good. I think that Lexington has the best player in the conference with Jordan.
Chute which one? The point guard who carries every time he dribbles? Seriously I know all of them so am curious.Upon further review, I'm not as confident in Providence Grove as I once was. I saw over the weekend that one of their best players is now at The Burlington School. Big loss for them.
Yeah he's very underrated. Better shooter than people give him credit for and can get to the rim with ease. He plays bigger than his size and I think he will have a huge season this year.I like JTT's game. I think he's underrated as far as area b'ball players go.
I need to go see the Rams, haven't seen them in a couple of years. I still think of that 2010 team every now and then. That was one whale of a squad.Reidsville should be the favorites to win the midstate 2A conference now that Cummings is depleted...young team coming off a playoff win over Lexington last year on the road
Think I might actually make the trip to West Montgomery tonight to watch Price. I think he'll be worth the drive. I just hope I won't have to use "The Stick".......I don't know much about the Rocky River conference.........but I'm going to make a prediction. West Stanly's Adafe Price will be POY. I saw Price at the Phenom Hoop 150 today and he was a man amongst boys. He's a versatile 6-7 with a motor that doesn't quit. He'll be one of the best players in 2A.
As for the conference itself, I don't know who's coming out on top. Forest Hills lost three main guys (but return quite a bit), Monroe and Parkwood look like they'll return a lot, West Stanly will have a nice frontcourt but not sure at all about backcourt.
I'll get my first look at PG either Tuesday or Wednesday. Should be interesting. Can't wait.Upon further review, I'm not as confident in Providence Grove as I once was. I saw over the weekend that one of their best players is now at The Burlington School. Big loss for them.
Yep, definitely worth the hike. Price put on a show. He had around five dunks and one amazing coast-to-coast drive. He's going to be a serious problem for most teams.Think I might actually make the trip to West Montgomery tonight to watch Price. I think he'll be worth the drive. I just hope I won't have to use "The Stick".......
Caught PG last night over at North Moore. PG won by around 20 (they were up by around 30 at the end of the third quarter. The bench came in and gave up around 10/12 points in a four-minute span). Anyhow.......Absolutely.
Looks like ER didn't have too much trouble.Thanks Chute. That is a great report.
Jordan still recovering from his injury I assume and Lonnie in Florida. Coached against most of them all the way through rec so I was curious at how they would be this year.
ER has N Moore Thursday I think so we will see how they do.
Metal detector was a little bit surprising. Fortunately for some reason left my Case XX at home. Just forgot it. Talked to guys manning detector after game while waiting on boy to get dressed. Said they have them at all major sports in Moore. Told me they were not deputies but their own force paid by state to man them at the schools.Cool that all 15 got to play. I'm not surprised ER had some trouble on the boards. N Moore had some big boys (including one kid that looked like he'd never spent a day outside the weight room. )
Speaking of North Moore......did you find it strange that they had a metal detector? Of all the places I go, I figured North Moore would be the last place I would ever have to go through a detector. I also didn't expect two nice close-captioned TV's right outside the gym either. I figured NM's gym would look more along the lines of West Montgomery. It was surprisingly really nice (and cold).
The people at North Moore are great. Very nice basketball facilities as well. Anybody know the results ofMetal detector was a little bit surprising.

And Moore county as country as I am. Heck I have had coaches ask me for my knife more than once in Randolph to help fix everything from unis to equipment and not just at ER.
ER goes to Chatham Central Monday. Hope they keep improving.
Ahhh ok that makes sense.Apparently that game disappeared from schedule. Maxpreps had it on their page but after N Moore I asked if ER was playing Tville Friday and was told no off til Monday and Chatham Central. I think the schedule on the school's web site is more accurate. Football playoffs caused some changes as 13 out of 15 boys played on that team.
