CHARLESTON BECAUSE OF THE RETURNING PLAYERS. NMCC IS CLOSE BEHIND I BET.
OH SCOTT1130, FORGOT STL TEAMS FIRST...LOL
I say it's still too early to determine that! Anything can happen from now til then.
True, but our jayvee team was nice.We have Hull, Watkins, Carter, Parham, coming back.
I'd say Charleston and Sikeston would be top two to start. After that, it is really wide open.
Like Cheese said, a little bit early to talk next year. If everything stayed as is, I'd have to agree with sideline, but who knows who might move away, contract an illness (God forbid), etc.
Charleston had a set of freshmen 6'3" twins, last year, on the jayvee and they moved to Bloomington IL when school was out. They were nice players and who knows how tall they are, now...their dad told me that they had a very good summer playing on an AAU team in Bloomington and would probably not be coming back to Charleston.
Just an example of what could happen. I've heard rumors that Charleston might lose one of its jayvee big men when school is out due to a move. Only time will tell; hopefully, the taste of a state championship would entice his family to stay in Charleston for a couple of more years.
Scott city. they'll run 17 players deep
Everything I've seen from Sikeston so far in spring practice looks good. Kids have a lot of focus. Ruffin, Jones and Bratcher will be the heart of the team and a lot of the JV kids look ready to step up. Gross and Sheehy will both have improved. Tyler Anderson is going to play next season and add some length up top as well as a lot of skill and basketball IQ. Jarius Ray, Chris Scott, Reese Porter and a couple others will be on varsity. I feel like it is going to be a strong year for them.
Caruthersville new coach will decide if they will be contenders or not! Get a coach in there that don't change the way they play, stay on the kids about keeping grades up, staying out of trouble, and knows some basketball, then with who Caruthersville has coming back next year, they will contend for State next year! Just a lot of what if's right now with my team.
Cheese, I've heard rumblings that there aren't any teaching positions open at Caruthersville to hire a coach from the outside.
hook, caruthersville is currenty posting a position open for physical education and health on moteachingjobs.com. Which begs the question, why could'nt Heeb just moved into one of those positions?
Well word is that Nathan Morgan, the head football coach will be taking the PE job once Dona Clark retires. That job is already filled, just not official.
Okay. Thanks for that information Cheese.
Class 2 BERNIE!
Everything I see from charleston's young players leads me to think we'll be again at the too in semo conf... Yesterday the team arrive about 2:30 by4 the guys were on the court getn better... I agree with some that says we'll be 1 or 2 in semo next yr... The returning players played major min & two jrs stArted a game at state!!! Losingthe seniors will be tough to replace veterans with younger kids but the younger kids(Jrs) had an impact too so we'll be fine!! Parham, hull, wAtkins, foster, Carter will probably be starters with both bogan's, Webster, Davis & some underclassman who steps up ready to contribute..i like our chances...
Got SC at about 10th, nerd. Only 11 Seniors deep. I appreciate the high praise though and I'm sure the kids do too, Thank You!
Also thanks for posting all those threads, now I won't have to!!!!!...LOL
That is correct cville has no spots open so it will be tricky. The spots posted will be filled from within. Heeb has gone on record in the paper saying his assistant Lamont Bell would be a great choice to follow him. The players love Lamont and that would seem like the logical choice.
By no means will Oran be the top team in the area but they should be greatly improved from this years quarterfinal team. They return three all-conference/all-district players and will have a good number of kids move up from this year's undefeated jayvee team.
Charleston will still be good ! What about scc ?
As far as rankings to start it would b CHS then SHS.. As the season progresses time will tell who fills the role. Every team loses alot of big players except maybe Cville..I'll keep my opions to myself until I see first couple if games from the various school. SHS will do ok. SCC will lose the most I think j porter isn't his brother an banks is ok. Only time will tell. Parham can't get it done Alone so who knows..
Parham is not the only BlueJay returning; remember, the Jays, like Sikeston, went 9-10 deep and had a very talented 1-loss jayvee unit. The Jays return 4 players who got lots of playing time, this year, in Parham, Hull, Carter and Watkins.
Would you do us all a favor and just not talk about basketball. You seem to know very little about the game. Thank you.
I think Kennett just might surprise some teams in Class 4 next year!
I think the top two teams will again be Sikeston and Charleston with Sikeston being my number 1 and Charleston 2, right now. Then a mix of ND, Cape, Jackson and maybe a couple of other teams. We'll have to wait till the season starts to see if the gap between the top 2 teams and everyone else has changed. Just 8 long months till the new season starts.
Why should sikeston be number 1? Im curious as to why...Ruffin is the only starter back... Granted jt, bratcher & gross return but I think with what jays hav returning they should be number 1... Parham, Watkins, foster, Carter, hull...starting 5... All of which played either started or has major min in this playoff run to the title... Add Webster & Robert & del bogan , will Davis & we are as deep if not deeper than any team around... Our guard play will be tough to deal with starters or reserves!! So at this point I think charleston deserves the top spot!!! We have more returning talent than sik & our Jayvee unit only had a loss... Stl38 parham won't have to do it all, he'll run the team again lik a general...again!!!
Can somebody tell me why Kristin Scott isn't on b.a. All star team? I just dint understand it, I know it was voting involved but idk why he isn't in the team... Last yr sikeston had 4players in the game, more than any other school, translate to thus yr...sikeston has 4guys in once again & charleston 3seniors are in but not the 4th which is Scott! I give u Jamison & maybe even warfield but if mc gee & Coleman was invited to play, I'm quite sure Scott should be on this team... The guy was a 2yr stArter on 3rdplace & state champ team, when warfield, mc gee & Coleman were not starters until this yr... Not trying to start anything but it's really hard to grasp how & why sikeston gets 8 players in the game last two years? I understand last yr but 4this year is two too many... I'm willing to bet Scott number are better than mc gee, warfield & Coleman numbers... So why no invite? Heck sikeston has more girls player in than any other school too!! C'mon guys involved with the process, it's gotta be more fair than this... Last yr charleston had 3senior's on a team that finished 3rd in state & only Jerry carter was invited or picked but the other starter Armstrong wasnt picked but yet was a starter on that 3rd place team!! What's the criteria for getting picked or invited?!
I'm sorry that's krushon Scott... iPhone....
Guess they hating on u Hate like u hate on everybody else. I agree that Scott should be playing over McGee if we look at comparison No doubt.I still say CHS will be alright Parham will have to score others will contribute but he will be the go to guy. It's not about points if he gets the ball making assist then that's a game in itself.. I wouldnt put SHS 1st but close running. SHS has a style where the really hav to hav 10 deep to produce produce.. SHS next really strong year will be with the 9 graders coming an JT as a senior they will run ten deep that year. Until then SHS will be ok but not stellar
You think parham can't score & dish? That's what he do... He's been doing that since 7th grade!! I'm sure he knows he has to score more & he will... He is very capable his fg% this yr was 44% so yes he can impact the game both ways!! Ryan avg 11ppg & 7asst this yr, Cassel avg 12, Tucker 21... Can we replace that? Yes we can, with probably a more balanced scoring team with parham & hull & Watkins & Carter can avg about 10 a game with foster 7-Pts we should be fine.. Stl parham is a floor general, he knows when to score & understood who get the ball to & when to score for himself... All while keeping dishing & playing pressure D!!! Best pg in area, I said it in dec, I'm saying it again!!! Stl I'm hater- proof u can't on me!!
I don't read to well best pg not
Among the best yes the best heck naww that's not hating..I'n the area probably Porter because he took a team that wasnt suppose to do much to a title.CHS won by the cards fallen in their favor really. Before u Hate CHS was good were they better than some teams that got put out no.Look at Duke are they the better team all around probably did they lose heck yes. Mizzou better team probably loss to a team that where hittin bank threes then lose by 35 n next round.So the cards where in CHS favor It's a new year so tome will tell u act like CHS is the only team that had guards that can dish an play d please.. There is a talented guard on several Bootheel teams. I still say this Hate on me pops up when another account got it's licensed revoked. U spell the same haterade on all other schools except CHS.. U r absolutely the revokee... SMH
You know the old saying, "sometimes, it's better to be lucky than good"
To win a state title, you have to be good, but it also requires a little luck. Charleston had a little luck in their game against Mt Vernon; they showed that they're good in the game against Hogan Prep.
Funny that when Sikeston won the state title, last year, they were better than everyone else; when Charleston wins, it's because luck was involved. Maybe I need to use Charleston's luck and start playing the lottery; gosh, been lucky 11 times, now!!!!
Here we go with another bird.I didnt say anything about SHS being better they had some close games last year no doubt.They were contested SHS had a big thing in their favor depth 10deep.It took all that to win know doubt.And yes CHS won against Hogan and lucked on Mt V.so chill out man dang..I respect the game I attented CHS with Corbett an Moe and Lamont Chism Dixon so I have histry with CHS.So dont get bent out of shape maybe my wife is from SHS and i have to keep a happy home..lol I still say with the talent that came throu SHS with beard and porter etc they should have at least 3 but only have one.with a couple 2nd place finishes.It is what it is.SHS runs the same sysytem with no variation and Chs mixes it up.Unles SHS runs ten they wont win again with a no change system.IMO.Case in point Imagine ran a offense similar to SHS ran with them so the theory of tiring a team out didnt happen because your guys were as equally tired as they were with a 7 man rotation.So in two years SHS will contend because they will have another 5in5out rotation.IMO.Thats what its about opinion.Provided that all the guys stay in school
Maybe you need to write what's coming out of your mind; that might help!
Stl u are always comparing college to high school... U can say chs got lucky but luck happened 11times, so it only happened once in sik I suppose!!! U are funny man, if u attended chs it's obvious you didn't play ball, our history is rich man...we havnt just become relevant, we've been relevant for like 25-30yrs... Your points about sik title & chs title, the difference is we had it easy, & sik didn't... Right?! Man please it's never easy to win state never... I don't care what class or state it's hard to do, if it was so easy Stl why havnt sik won more than one? Because it's hard... Please don't give me that class 4 jive... I'm so sick of hearing thAt as if late... I know the last umpteen yrs chs has been beating shs so what does that say about class 4? What does that say about class 3? It says it doent matter what class it is, its hard to do... Period!! Sideline IMO Jamison won't be in media all state either... His Best chance was coaches team... Doesn't mean he's not good just not one of the best in state... Btw has he been recruited by anybody, I'm sure 3rivers, shawnee or Mac will give him a look...
OK BIRD BLAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...If someone says something in your favor r dispute you are just a disgruntled person period..I speak whats on my mind most of the time trust that..Only a fool talks whats coming out their mind 100% of the time.Im not a fool so I dont..DO you?????????????Some Bird fans arent satisfied with a win r a loss u still complain.U win u complain u lose u complain.Geezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.Im done.the forum is about what rightttttt... CHS will hold the one SHS will come close with two With ND and Kennet an Bernie getting my other votes.Dont know about SC and SCC probably wont be a big threat in class 1 althoiugh U never know what SHS body will commute to go play there next year.I never understood how yiou could live in Sikeston drive to scott county everyday and play ball..hmmm scratching my head on that one.
He hate me, stlfan38,
