They play the same game so sikeston can't tire kennett out, how bad will it be. I think if kennett plays to their abilities they can give sikeston a good game. not saying they can win but can make it interesting
Sikeston by 30+
There's no way. 21 point lose to Bluff speaks for its self.
Not trying to start anything, but charelston plays the same and they were GASED by the second half
yeah charleston does play the same,we will see. I was at the pb game kennett never showed up. knt wins that game 9 out of 10 times. I doubt they play that bad the rest of the year. sikeston will not be able to coast through this game
Ktown 5150- I would have to disagree on this topic. Sikeston is a different kind of monster compared to PB,Cville, Pville.. They are on a whole other level of playing. The only team to really compete with them in this area but probably be SCC and even they would have a hard time with them. Kennett may be good and have a deep bench, but Sikeston's bench really isn't that much of a drop off from their starters so I would have to say Sikeston by 30+, and that's giving Kennett the benefit of a doubt and playing great that night.
not saying kennett will win but they will not loose by 30 plus and thats giving sikeston the benefit of the doubt and playing great that night
Sikeston by 25.
Kennett will have two 30+ point losses within the next month Sikeston and SCC
Kennett beats bluff 9 out of 10 times after losing by 21 in the only game they played? Pretty bold statement don't you think.. Bluff has only played 2 semo games so far this season and they have the toughest overall schedule .. So their 6-8 record is a little bit misleading , I'm not saying bluff is better then Kennett but to say that they would win 9 out of 10 after losing by 21 Is kind of crazy.. Plus I was at that game too..
Sikeston by about thirty. This team is improved over last year's by a great degree because of the ability to mix in inside and outside shooting without a drop in either, something that past Sikeston teams have struggled with. Plus, the extended bench talent and depth adds another edge. From the limited action I've seen from Kennett this year, they seem to be a year older but not much wiser. So considering Sikeston won by 25 last time and in my opinion has made more improvement, I predict a 88-57 game.
Kennett has one shot since they are at home. Play the same kind of game as they did against Charleston in the District finals last year and hope that Hollifields boys are tired.We only beat Malden on the 4th by 7 and lost to Bluff by 21. Next two games are Senath and South Pem. before Sikeston.Not much of a test,and what will two blowouts prove before the 21st? We will see.
Sikeston by 25 (Giving Kennett benefit of doubt)
Charleston played with Sikeston and was beating them for a half. Then Sikeston took off. Sikeston is very good but they do rely on wearing people down and making a big run when you are tired. I just point this out because Kennett will not turn the ball over in bunches the way that Charleston did. I don't think Kennett will beat them but it will be a close game because Kennett matches up to Sikeston better. Sikeston relies on pressure, Kennett has great guard play.
Sorta like how everyone thought kennett would blow out PB?
I think kennett can give sikeston a very good game,they play the same style and probably have the best guard play in semo area. their bench goes 9 or 10 deep and kennett also relys on pressure and fast break points. I only saw the one game with pb, so maby not 9 out 10 times. I just know kennett did not play their style of bb that night and sikeston does so kennetts offense should be better
Best guard play in SEMO at kennett??? Please do not let any Cape people hear you say that. Branch is the stud in SEMO, per Cape ppl
Kennett has very good guards, but Sikeston has GREAT guard play! Dogs by 20+. The Dogs have too many horses! And.....they will be ready.....Coach Holifield will not let the boys overlook the Indians.
they better not overlook kennett like all of you are. If they do I will let you know that i told you so.
Ktown, all of us heard these same rumblings last year and it led to a 25 point win for the Bulldogs. Nobody is overlooking Kennett. We are just offering our reasoning as to why we believe that Sikeston will win this game. Please offer us your in-depth analysis on how you think this game will go but repeating "Don't count them out" and "They better not overlook us" does nothing but make you sound like a broken record saying "Look at me!"
to start, I never said kennett would win. I said kennett could give sikeston a good game. all of you jumped on the kennett looses by 30 plus band wagon.thats not going to happen by the way.Kennetts bench is to deep,sikeston might out run and gun us but they are not going to tire us out because we play the same style. our defense will cause plenty of sikeston turnovers also,as will sikestons.Kennett has at least 4 guys that can bring the ball up the court just as good as any sikeston player.Last year our two best players got in foul trouble early so they had to set out while sikeston pulled away, It will be a different game on friday. kennett has 4 very fast guards, good enough to keep up with sikeston
"Kennett has at least 4 guys that can bring the ball up the court just as good as any sikeston player."
Please name me four people on Kennett who can bring the ball up like Darryl Howard or Terry Jamison can. I know two the starting guards are close but I don't think anyone else is on that same level. Have you seen Sikeston play at all this year? Before you ask, yes, I have seen Kennett play.
ktown, ya we didn't think that they would wear us down in football either...
its all about the style of play. kennett guards are comparable to sikestons. where sikeston has the advantage may be depth. kennett can play the style as well as sikeston but the question is for how long. but kennett will be at home and responsible fans will respect that point. with this game being at kennett there is no chance that it will be a 30 point game. i would pick sikeston by 10-15.
sideline i have seen both teams play as well and caruthers and garmon are just as capable as jamison and howard. i think sikeston is the better team and kenett has struggled some but you would be foolish not to believe that kennett wont be up for this game.
When is the sikeston vs kennett game cause I'd like to be there!? It's prolly up there somewhere, but I don't feel like scrolling up smh.
It is Friday.
I keep wanting to predict the underdog against Sikeston but they seem to be handling everyone so well it's hard to root for anyone against them.
Sikeston by 20.
I think Charleston thought they had comparable guard play to Sikeston until they actually played. The relentless pressure took its toll in the second half when the C'ton youth began to crumble under the pressure giving the Bulldogs points off of turnovers in bunches. And, once you lose your legs, your shots quit falling; against the Bulldogs, the legs do have a tendency to go on vacation during the second half.
come on play the talk sikeston by 10 where is the game? sikeston by 15 if it is away by 10
seen sikeston 2 times up in st charles county
lots of speed and great hands and deep to about 7-8 players but take howard and hachett out for fouls
must she if they handle the next level if the next level is there this year!
Everybody thinks they play the same level as SCC and Sikeston till you play them.. Its just two different speeds of basketball
ball handlers, garmon,caruthers, camron wallace,and jack walls fyi no body on sikeston team is as fast as jack walls you will see. any of these guys can dribble through the pressure with very few turnovers. all four guys are as good of ballhandlers as any sikeston guy. kennett plays the same style just as good, their legs will not give out. sikeston has a better team but not by 30 plus. dexter and cvill both started chanting lets play football once they knew they were going to loose. guess what, this ain't football, i guess certain sikeston fans want to start playing that card also. This game has the potential for an upset, at the same time it has the potential for a 15 or 20 point sikeston win.I think it will be one of the best games to watch this year, that was my point when i started this thread. I know all of the sikeston fans think that they are all world and nobody can beat them unless the refs have something to do with it, if kennett pulls the upset i am sure that will also be the case.
Darryl howard is all state in track, he is the fastest basketball player in this part of the state par none, you've talked kennett up all year just like last year..
And you better hope its not like football..
I'll do some math for you.. You lost to Poplar bluff by 20+.. Cape beat Poplar Bluff.. Sikeston beat cape by 27..
By theory sikeston should win by over 30..
Who has kennett played to get them ready for Sikeston?
I think Charelston will win that district and sikeston beat them by 20 points..
If kennett and sikeston combined teams, garmon would be the only one to start... Fyi
not true,about the starters, caruthers is good enough, we lost to pb so thats what everyone is going by, fair enough, we will see. If you watch the game watch jack walls you will see what im saying about speed. again we are not talking track and field
Then i guess you havent seen darryl howard..
I havent seen one person keep up with him for 4 straight quaters..
And good teams don't just have an "off" night and get beat by 27
And who would he start over?
Since terrys the lone junior i'll let garmon take his spot, even though i'd personally keep jamison
I've never even heard of him
I've only seen Kennett play on the Webcast championship game against Dexter and I was not overly impressed with them. I believe they cannot hang with Sikeston either, but I don't necessarily believe some of the 30+ blowout predictors on here.
My guess is Sikeston by 17.
There is one team that has defeated Poplar Bluff this season and one that has lost to them by 21. There is one team that defeated East Poinsett while they had their D-1 recruit Ky Madden and one that lost against them while East Poinsett didn't have Madden. The team that won both of these games was Charleston, who was defeated by Sikeston by 27 at home. If Sikeston were to win like I have predicted, it wouldn't be a blowout because Kennett is a bad team, it is because Sikeston just has that type of talent. If you can win at the Jays Nest, you can win almost anywhere.
I remember all the hype this game had last year. Didnt live up to it at all. Im expecting the same this year.
Kennett will come out fired up because it is at home. I'm sure they will play well, but Sikeston will eventually pull away....by 15+. As I said before, Sikeston has too many horses. Kennett is good, but they struggled against Dexter....who got beat by Bernie (no offense to Bernie).
Kennett, however, will be a force in Class 3 district. I just don't know that much about Class 3 after district. I would guess that they have a good chance of getting back to the quarters, though....if they win their district. That goes to any team out of that district that wins.
Kennett and Sikeston will be a good game.. Only bad thing about Kennett is that they have no big man.. But hopefully they come up and come up with an upset..
"I just dont see Sikeston being able to consistantly stop them from scoring. Also, especially in half court D, Kennett will keep the ball in front of them."
"Deepest bench in the area? Their seventh man is their BIG boy Porter and he wont be able to make it down the court by the time all five of the indians have made it down, 4 on 5 looks pretty good."
"Be ready to be impressed. We may not be as deep as sikeston, but we have twice as much spirit."
I went into the semoball vault and found a few quotes that Kennett fans were throwing out last year before a game they lost by 25. This is part of the reason I made the prediction I did. They are good, but Sikeston is phenomenal. And before anyone throws out the "I hope the Sikeston players are just as 'overconfident' as the fans" I will just say that anyone who knows them know they come into every game expecting to play against a potential state champ. They never take a game off.
Bravo starter, bravo!! Great post!!
Are you going to Farmington tomorrow night??
Yeah, I'll be there supporting the 'Dogs. I really want to get a real look at where this Farmington team is as well. I feel like Grindle may not have been at full health when they played Cape last week (although Cape definitely deserved the win looking at that score, I say Farmington is better than that though). I assume you'll be there, Rocket?
I agree about Farmington....I am fully expecting a tough team and I know Coach Holifield and the Dogs are as well.
Oh yeah, I will be there. As I tell my friends when they ask me if I am going....is the Pope Catholic??? LOL!
Do I know you....or do you know who I am? You seem to be at most of the games as well.
You givin out rides rocket?
You may know of me but I don't think we've met in person. I try to keep my identity as secret as possible.
Do you need a ride, Gadget? We've probably got room.
Ok, starter....just curious.
I hope the refs let both teams play and dont call the tic tac fouls. let them run and see what happens, I think that is kennetts best chance,don't try to slow sikeston down, just go all out, If our guys can hit the open shots we have a slim chance for an upset, if they miss wide open shots all night like they did against p-bluff it will be a blowout.
I also hope the weather doesnt mess this game up and cause it to get canceled.
Sikeston won't be out trust me, we'd have to make it to school if there was 2 feet of snow..
Well we know Kennett is beating Sikeston by 2 so everybody shutup!
Kennett is GOING TO WIN!!
Have fun with those beliefs.
Does anyone know how many steals Daryl Howard has on the season?
Sikeston by 25 SCC by 40
The Standard Democrat had Sikestons stats in the Tuesday paper and it had Daryl Howard with 59 steals before the Farmington game.
Quick inquiry I just thought of for the Kennett fans: how does Charleston defeat a team like East Poinsett, Arkansas who was playing with Arkansas signee Ky Madden while Kennett loses to them when Madden wasn't playing? If you can't beat East Poinsett without Madden and Charleston beat them and Sikeston beat Charleston by 27, what is with all the cockiness?
Is it at Sikeston or Kennett?
At Kennett tomorrow night
Hey Kennett fans....any word on whether or not the game will happen tomorrow night? Someone told me that Kennett got out early today and Sikeston got out around 1. I know it's only Thursday.....just curious. I have a sneaking suspicion that Sikeston will be in school tomorrow.
I thought the world was ending when we got out today, i'm sure kennett will be out tommorrow
It would really suck for this game to get called off a day before its played. I totally understand though, safety is first. I just really have to know if Kennett can back up all that talk that has been going on these forums. Personally, I'm looking for a close game at half, but that 2nd half, IHMO, Sikeston will pull away
they might, we will see. i hope we get to play because the build up would be a huge let down if game is canceled. I just want kennett to play as good as i think they are, and see what the score ends up being.If we loose a hard faught game ,i can handle that.
Sikeston-Kennett game will be cancelled. Sikeston schools got called off for tomorrow and Sikeston doesn't play on days they dont have school due to weather.
I call that BS... Kennett would still play if they didn't have school!
Yeah the game is still on, and most schools cancell games when they are out of school, sikeston being one of them.. So chill our Ktown, yall will get your thrashing now sooner then later
you know, it would be too funny if kennett pulled the upset after all of the smack talking from sikeston. I know most of your talk is backed up on the court, but you need to learn how to give other good teams respect, we will see if kennett deserves that respect tonight and if they do ,all of you should give it to them.
I was being sarcastic ktown, everything in life's not serious.. It's probably true, but from all the smack talking you guys put up last year, i think its a little fair
Confirmed - game is still on for tonight as regularly scheduled with JV starting at 6:00. Best wishes to both teams.
I wasnt being too serious,I like a little talk, this stuff makes the game more interesting, a kennett victory would be sweet though
"Kennett has at least 4 guys that can bring the ball up the court just as good as any sikeston player"
"no body on sikeston team is as fast as jack walls you will see"
"all four guys are as good of ballhandlers as any sikeston guy. kennett plays the same style just as good"
"camron wallace is as fast as anyone, can take it to the hoop around press"
You know what is funny? The Kennett fans are talking more smack than the Sikeston fans but assume the Sikeston fans are just looking at Kennett as just another small school. I've seen both of these teams play multiple times and I know Kennett is talented. I give them their props. However, the fans who want to create this "us against the world" and "everybody is underestimating us" mentality are going to be in for a rude awakening tonight. If you haven't seen Sikeston, you don't know what you are walking into.
Didn't Sikeston talk all this stuff in football? What happen to them? Can't go to state.. Just one thing, IF Kennett gets a lead or wins dont start saying "Let's play football", Like every other team we beat says!
Can't even think of a response so you switch to trying to belittle the football team...classy. The difference, Sikeston actually had a talented football team. And I think the chant will be "Just Like Football"
We don't say lets play football, we Say just like football.. Which was a blowout like tonight will be..
And you can't make fun of a team for losing in the final four when you had 4 wins total
This is a basketball thread btw mr toy kids doll. And 30? Coach hollifield doesn't even think his boys will win by that much
If Kennett wins, they'll act like they just won the state title.
Whether Sikeston wins or loses, they'll forget about it by 10 p.m.
Coach Hollifield is a very respectful coach and always prepare them to go into a 4 quarter battle, obviously he's not camera or tell a reporter "oh yeah expect a 50 point blowout" he is a classy coach, and a humble winner
yeah im sure if kennett wins they will act like that,because it would be a big upset and sikeston wont forget about it the rest of the year, I know the sikeston fans wont anyway.
Like the great Vince Lombardi said " act like you have been there before."
Sikeston by +30
Please don't judge us by the 3 or 4 morons trash talking that can't seem to speak proper English. Most of us are fairly nice. Looking forward to tonight regardless of who wins. Should be an entertaining game.
has sikeston been there before??? It should be a good game, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it will be the best game of the night.
Haha ktown i will agree with you on that one!
I hope it is a good game
Sikeston up 18-17 end of 1.
A few minutes into the 2nd q. 5 fouls for Sikeston...Kennett 0 fouls.
Sikeston up 34-21 with a few minutes left till half.
40-25 Sikeston at the half.
Worst officiating crew I have seen in some time for both sides. Kennett said they wanted speed, they got it. They are going to need the zebra crew to give them a lift if they want to come back in the second half.
Said there's a big delay for some twirling groups performing at half. A little extra rest maybe? LOL!
16-0! Sounded like more of the same. Kennett never quit, I'll give them that.
And Sikeston wins 82-57
I said before the game that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it and here we are. The exact same margin of victory as last year.
Ktown5150, was that you that got escorted out of the game?
no but i was setting one row down from him all he said was the refs need a better second half and they kicked him out. sikeston played good, kennett played good . I was hoping for a closer game if we lost but guess we will worry about charleston next friday. hard to judge a 25 point loss vs 27 point loss. should be a pretty evenly matched game.
Kennett you were fast and at first it was a pretty good game but closer to the end it was a little rough playing,thought I was watching football instead of bball.
Always like to take a radio to the game and listen to the local broadcast and the two announcers for the Kennett station need to get a license to ref. Don't think a call all night was right according to them.
so Sikeston fans...who wins between kennett and charleston?
I was very impressed with Sikeston. Quick hands and they run the floor hard after they steal that ball. Very impressive for sure. I thought Kennett caught some breaks and did get some calls especially early when it looked like Sikeston was going to blow them right out of the gym. But give Kennett credit. They kept it interesting for about two and a half quarters, similar to Charleston. I'd say those two teams are neck and neck for the best team in Class 3. Sikeston is head and shoulders above everybody else in Class 4.
I'm not usually the one to complain about reffing, but that was nothing less then ridiculous, i wish i could say they were terrible to both sides, but idk how many times we were fouled down low, how many tic tac fouls were called, and how many travels were missed..
They couldn't keep up with the game, as for kennett garmon was good, idk about a top D1 prospect, but he was good, as for caurthers if he's not a senior he'll improve
several over the backs and a few charges from porter didnt get called, but that wouldnt have made 25 point difference. im sure there were no calls on kennett also. kennett will have a good chance against charleston, should be a good game. you tend to notice the calls that dont go your way, im not blaming the refs.
It depends where it is to me, its a toss up honestly, but i'd say charelston
Oh yeah i thought porter wouldnt do anything this game? He dominated the paint and proved how athletic he was, i seen a few calls on us that should have been called but i seen garmon travel about 5 times that werent called and idk how many smacks i heard from the kennett players that werent called either.. But like you said wouldn't have made a difference
You have to give it to Sikeston players for going into Charleston,Farmington and Kennett and coming home with three impressive wins.
The thing that was getting me was the two-hand shoves in the back by the Kennett players when Sikeston would jump up for a rebound. It was comical at times. The 30 minute halftime kept this game from being a turbo clock situation. It allowed Kennett to get much needed rest. As Sikeston always does, they were pulling away with each passing second in the fourth quarter. I was a little surprised that Kennett was trying to slow the game down, especially after they were down 20. I guess they didn't think they could run with Sikeston or they were trying to keep it from being a total blowout.
Corey Porter, as usual, proves his doubters wrong.
As for Kennett and Charleston. That's tough, but I might give Charleston a slight edge.
we will see next friday about charleston, sikeston had plenty of no calls go their way, it wasnt one sided at all. when you lower your shoulder and knock our guy 5 feet away of cours your going to dominate down low, he should have had at least 3 charges called that wasnt. no turboclock will not happen all year. sikeston is very good and i hope they win state in their class.
Sorry, Ktown, but your boy flopped on those no calls. They weren't even good flops.
The train keeps rolling, picking up fans along the way. What's weird is how every team they play has a "D1" recruit, and they just keep on hammering. The Bulldogs just keep on proving team over individual. Even Hansbrough had some support. This Bulldog team is a complete package and is hell bent on taking on every challenge like its their last. They haven't lost but a handful plus a couple in their career, and they have the mentality of not losing any more. Kudos to Coach Holifield and the team for the excitement they have brought to the town and the school.
Remember last year: Kennett came to Charleston during the regular season and Charleston beat them by double digits; District championship was at Kennett and Kennett beat Charleston similarly. So, stands to reason that since the two teams are so close in talent, Kennett would have the advantage being that the regular season game is in Kennett. But, if Kennett should win that game, the district tourney will be on a neutral court which will make for a very interesting game.
Another possible factor for the district tourney: last year, Charleston had to go through NMCC in the semifinal before reaching Kennett in the final; if Kennett wins the regular season game, they'll probably get the #1 seed which would force Charleston to go through C'ville in the semifinals. Playing teams back-to-back of that caliber and style could drain a team and will be a detriment to whichever team has to play C'ville (assuming that team gets by C'ville).
rocketsbro was right those were all flops. Not even good acting, seems to me like he needs some acting classes. I know Coreys big but you are not going to fall down when he catches it.
Kennett seems to be feasting on some humble pie...
Last night I agree the refs were horrible both ways. Not one way more than the other. However, how bout them BULLDOGS!?!?!?!? Kennett fans we tried to warn you guys, you cannot keep up for 4 quarters. Every team against Sikeston will make a run in the first half and might even have a small lead....but you cannot keep up that kind of game for 32 mins.
Again I think that Sikeston will have some close games but this team is the real deal....cannot see them losing anytime soon. Might not even lose again till maybe a game this time next year.
sikeston is as good as advertised, never thought kennett had a big chance to win, just wanted them to keep it closer than they did. how about porter hitting that three in the first half, wasnt expecting that
Porter in my opinion is bball smart.He knows when and where to pass off to others and he knows when to shoot.He usually hits alot of his shots.I'm impressed with him.Was a big fan of Michaels and now I'm a big fan of Coreys.
And as usual, Corey continues to pick up fans along the way. People have no idea.
I thought the game was rough both ways, but i dont think kennett was at all cheated. Seeing kennett play against several other teams this year really makes me think that kennett fans have no room to be talkin about teams playn rough. Porter may have had the softest touch ive ever seen for somebody his size
People seem to forget that he is still a Porter just like Michael, Isaac, and Otto. He's been playing against top talent since he was born. He just also happens to be a Porter with football skills.
I had never seen him play before until last night but he was very impresseive. But of course if u have the last name porter what do u expect, they can all play
