Here are my random thoughts on the hoop season...or me stealing quotes from other people, movies, or I heard it somewhere!
They are who we thought they were........Jayson Tatum- Killed people at Pattonville. Here at his stats: 29, 9 5, 4. I think he is as good as people say. Funny how last year at this time people talk he was over rated.
IWA- The go to Quincy Notre Dame, who had a 51 game win streak and win by 20. They had a tough game vs. MICDS. I assume Coach Rolfes will use this as great motivation in practice.
Glotta, Teeson, Whitfield make the best group of guards in 1 conference in St. Louis. All are scoring 20+ points a game.
Are you not entertained?The Vianney tournament was as strong as ever. Ladue and the "Fighting Kevin Walsh's" played 2 overtimes. The final was a top 10 battle between Ladue and Hazelwood Central. I think Central has been in the final for the last 32 years.
The Parkway tournamenrt was a bloodbath. North beats West, but loses to South. West beats South and then loses to Central. There is a quiz over this later.
The Troy tournament had a great championship between Hickman and Fort Zumwalt South. Hickman won in a thriller!
So what does Zumwalt South go beat a good Kirkwood team in the finals of the St.Charles Tourney.
CBC beats Chaminade in a battle of who is the best recruit in St. Louis. Am I talking about the schools or Barnett vs. Tatum?
No sleep till:
Speaking of Kirkwood don't sleep on the Pioneers. My question is can you ever play a home game before Christmas?
Guys with the heat check on!
Josh Robinson- St. Mary's
Deion Lavender- Alton Marquette
Tre Curry- Howell Central
Team of the Week!
The Lafayette Lancers: Won the Webster Tournament by beating Webster in the finals.
There is no gambling at Bushwoods sir!
But I am going to predict the Suburban/GAC shootout!
Summit vs Francis Howell North- Howell North, what a differrence a few transfer make.
Francis Howell vs University City- It is all about THE U
Sullivan vs Seckman- The Jaguars of Seckman. When did Sullivan get in the GAC?
Washington vs Kirkwood, The WOOD! They play more games in St. Charles County than at home!
St. Charles vs Webster Groves- My gut says Coach Blossom killed them this week in practice. I don't mean worked them hard, I mean he may have literally killed 1 or 2 of them. Take Webster
Timberland vs Parkway South I always take a guy in a sweater vest let alone an entire staff in a sweater vest. South wins big!
St. Charles West vs Parkway Central- In an Olivia Newton John game, "Let's get physical physical" I pick Central.
Troy Buchanan vs Lafayette The Lancers big.
Fort Zumwalt South vs Oakville South is really good. South is on a roll. South wins a close one!
