WB did really well against Hathaway Brown. I wouldn't be afraid to play them in the regular season after a couple games under our belt. I was extremely impressed with the Warriors. Still a few things to work on but I love our defense. Not saying either if we won or lost any. Let's just say (IMO) the NBC fans will be in for a treat when they see us. Good luck to all teams in the NBC. Let's hope see good basketball and no injuries!!!

I agree on the rhythm/energy of the game but I disagree that that was on the officials. I thought it was ok officiating overall. Not stellar, but not bad and it certainly didn't decide the game. South's lack of any sort of offense/Central's defensive effort was much more the deciding factor.
South only gave up 39 points and you could tell their game plan was to stop the penetration of Dodson, and keep everything on the perimeter. 39 points given up to me is not bad on the defensive end. Their issue was on the offensive side of the ball. I thought both teams defense was good, definitely more CCC.

To the people of South, PLease vote on your school levy next time. I saw the newspaper article with leaky ceilings. Last night the score board didn't work well and I had no clue who was in the bonus, etc... Vote for a new school for your kids for goodness sake!

West Branch 67
Ursuline 19

FINAL

West Branch started 1 senior, 1 junior, and 3 sophomores tonight. If it wasn't for sloppy play tonight by the Lady Warriors, they could of easily scored 80+...They missed several easy layups that i hardly see them miss. Then, they had a hard time boxing out defensively. However, even with the sloppy play, they cruised to victory in this game.

My biggest "wow" tonight was how lopsided it was. Isn't Ursuline usually a top tier DIII program in Northeast Ohio? I knew they opened up season at Stow last year, and almost came out of there with a victory(to be honest, they really should of). Didn't know how much they loss from a year ago. I went into that game thinking this was going to be one of WB's toughest games all year long. I was quickly proven wrong. I'm at a loss of meaningful words right now...Great job Lady Warriors!

Ursuline has been very good in recent years yes, but this game suggests this year won't be as good. Obviously WB is very talented, no disrespect intended to them... but good teams don't get blown out like that no matter who the opponent

Took in this game yesterday... I gotta say, compared to the game I saw Friday night(South/CCC) , wow... what a major difference in less then 24 hours. Based on pre game and the first quarter, I thought the lady eagles was going to win it, I just had that feeling. However, Louisville and GO put on a great game today!!! My suggestion,,, these two need to open each year. I thought both teams played hard, well coached, and obviously went into OT to determine the game. Congrats to both teams and communities. As far as Lady Hoops, both schools were represented well!!!

And as for GO fans, last year I came to a game where you were ripping the coach and players. I gotta say,,, where I was sitting, you hear small things, but for the most part, I felt you behaved much better then last year.

Received a text from Marlington parent/good friend and co worker. In the text it stated this "Girls fought hard, but it will be a long season for JV and Varsity". I think this is sad... I really do... this is a school I felt was going to compete for the league this year. They loose a player to Alliance, ooops, I mean McKinley. Then a player who is in trouble (sad issue), coach steps down (understandable for why) and have only a few players back from last years team with a JV team that I believe was the worst in the NBC. I feel for these girls and that program. I think if they pull off 3-5 wins this season, that would be a success. Their out of league schedule is just as tough as their in league schedule.

Happy 500 post to myself. McGal, I am only 35,000 something away from you! Oh yeah, I saw Hogan had 12 pts for the bulldogs, not bad!

Good question... I don't know and I agree, I think she should have had to sit out like Dodson. Heck.. technically, didn't she play for 3 schools in 2012? Marlington, Alliance, and McK. I feel for Marlington.. as I have said before, I have a good friend who's daughter is on the team. I was looking forward to watching the Lady Dukes compete for the championship this year, however, I think we all know that will not be the case. But again... to answer your question, not sure why she is eligible. I do though have this question, why did she leave in the first place? Marlington to me had a good thing going there in my opinion.

Guys, you're comparing apples and oranges situations and the two situations rulings in the end were the right ones by OHSAA by-laws and according to the schools and AD's involved. There's much more to both that most general fans don't understand or know about that has nothing to do with basketball. I don't think anyone outside of the families themselves, the OHSAA, and the coaches in each case really know the full story.

From what I have understood, the father made the push for her to be cleared because the move was "work-related," which is a valid reason according the the OHSAA. Not saying it is right or wrong, but if the OHSAA found that work was the reason, in this economy and in general you can't hurt the player.

McGal, I know youre close to the situation at McKinley....What exactly was the reason for the move of Dotson. I don't want to hear rumors or start rumors. I have heard everything from education reasons to didn't care for coaching staff. You probably won't answer and I don't blame you, just curious.

Lol I won't answer because I've never actually heard directly from her or her family themselves. Not worth putting unverified info out there.

I can respect that. Its just always been such a mystery, no one seems to know. She is a great player though, McKinley is missing a post for sure but she would have been a huge help.

1) Louisville will still be solid and have a then junior/now senior class who's out to prove they are 'as good' as last year's seniors. Just my guess after some of the competitive issues last year on the team.

2) Massillon did not lose 'everyone'. Far from it. Young? Yes they'll be playing a couple good young guards. They just won't have size. Also have the twins from McK over there now (guards that are seniors).
Louisville is in deep trouble without Mackenzie Storlie. Her ballhandling was absolutely sick and now Louisville has nobody who can dribble it up the court. It could be an interesting year for Louisville f they have nobody who can handle the ball. They had 34 turnovers against Glen Oak, a team that absolutely dominated last year

Scoring 7 points in the 4th quarter doeesn't show moxie. I was at that game and lets just say the lady leps are lucky that glenoak cant make free throws. Won't be a good season for the lady leps if their captain gets called for 5 seconds four times in the fourth quarter. I certainly hope I'm wrong, but theyre not going to win NBC now that Storlie is gone.
The only retuning people that can effectively play are Jordan Monnot and Clara Lemmon.

While I agree that its going to be a tough road to win the NBC, let's not forget it was the first game. From what I heard GlenOak was the favorite, yet still with all the turnovers and mistakes Louisville still pulled out a win. I wouldn't throw away the season just yet.

Also I don't want to make this as an excuse, but you were at the game let's be honest the refs let them play. When fouls aren't being called, there will be a lot of turnovers. GlenOak had 20 as well. Nees, Mullett, and Rice can all handle the ball fine.

I agree Nees and Mullett can but Rice is really a liability when in comes to inbounding the ball even. 3 for 4 times she got call for 5 seconds in the 4th quarter. Again, I hope I get proven wrong, but I don't know how she is expected to start.

It should be Nees, Mullett, Monnot, and the Lemmons.

Lady Leopards fall to Lake 52-41. This was an ugly game; too many mistakes by Louisville and yes, taking care of the ball is a problem. Lake looked a little loose at times also.

Louisville cuts down the turnovers they could beat a team like Lake, but can they cut down the turnovers is the problem. At times some terrible shot selection also.

Clara Lemmon has yet to reach her potential - she could out-jump the taller Lake girls and is no nonsense about bringing the ball downcourt and in a hurry. Why not let her bring it? She should also be attacking the hoop, getting fouled etc. I don't think she realizes how good she is.

Rice didn't have that problem at all vs Lake. You only saw one game.


Nees and Mullett were having more trouble taking care of the ball than Rice vs Lake.

Didn't attend the game but from what I was told Louisville is in for a long season and so is Lake if they play as they did tonight.Lake was obviously the better team but the sloppy play by both teams made it tough to watch.

Hannah Lemmon: 8 Points, 3 Blocks, 3 Steals vs. Lake...I think that qualifies as an effective night what do you think?

She was fine at GlenOak, she got into foul trouble this game but she'll be fine and I believe her best is yet to come. Team Defensive Player of the Year last year.

Hard to win with 31 turnovers and 23-12 disadvantage in fouls.
