District Final 3/10: Lucasville Valley vs. Portsmouth

Postby chicken_coop » March 5th, 2012, 10:29 pm

Here we go folks!! 2 of the top teams in SEO battling it out for a district title...these 2 met in 2010 in a 4/5 game that Valley won 63-62 and many considered that an upset, as Portsmouth was favored even as the 5 seed. This trojan group made a run to the FF so they are tournament and battle tested!

Gonna be a great game on Saturday....

Do you get all the gamesfor 1 price? Coop may consier making the drive if thats the case!

I believe the DIV finals at 10 and 12 are one price and the DIII finals starting at 5 are one price.

Peake v. Peebles
Ironton v. Eastern Brown
Portsmouth v. Valley

I can't imagine getting more for $6 than that!!

Saturday at the Convo will be another in a long line of outstanding "District Championship Saturdays" that take place every year on campus at OU!!! And, I think this game is the perfect "headliner" if you will, considering it is being played as the last of the day's 5 games. Portsmouth comes in having won 17 in a row and being the SEOAL Champs, while Valley enters having won 17 of their last 19 along with an SOC 2 title. Both teams are senior laden, veteran groups, who play very good defense. The Trojans have excellent speed and can definitely hurt you with their quickness, meanwhile the Indians boast the most size in the SE District and are very successful in the half-court game.

I'm very excited for Saturday!!!!

Let's go Indians!!!!!!

imo this game will come down to how the game is called. if the stripes let them play I would give the edge to portsmouth. If its called close then i think the pendulem swings over to valley. should be a great game!

I think Valley is by far the more rounded team. Portsmouth (by far) will have the best player on the court.

Should be interesting. Go SOC II!

There is a girls Regional Final game between the DIV and DIII games.

DIV Game at 10:00
DIV Game at 11:45
Girls - Winner of Oak Hill vs. Fairland faces the winner of Africentric vs. Fort Frye at 1:45
Peake v. Peebles at 5:00
Ironton v. Eastern Brown 7:00
Portsmouth v. Valley 9:00

I would imagine they will clear the Convo after the girls game.

i watched Portsmouth play last night and I cannot figure out this. Hopefully a Portsmouth fan can answer this for me. Why does the coach not play number 1 this kid seems to be very capable of playing same 6 all night. Does not seem to make sense to me.

His record is 20 and 2 this year he won 20 games last year. took last years team to the final 4. had a winning record his first year as a high school varsity coach 2 years ago. so as a Portsmouth fan I dont think I will question his coaching ability. but I will say this he does has a couple young players on the bench that you will definatly be seeing in the next couple of years.

TIGERFOOL you did not ruffle my feathers at all.
Im going to get back to the game at hand on this thread and let the coaches worry about coaching.

this should be a very good ball game bewteen two very good teams also should make for a very good crowd at the convoy...Scioto county will no doubt have folks comeing even from other schools to se this one.

Valley has a group of seniors that will play together. this group just knows how to win. Ptown might have the edge in talent but Valley will win this one on effort and team play. i say Valley by 8

I have absolutely loved the defense that the Trojans have played thus far in the tournament........and that defense is the main reason that PHS has a 20-2 record........I expect to see PHS come at Valley really hard........the Indians have a lot of size, so Portsmouth must keep that size off the boards.

A win will give Portsmouth the 36th district championship in school history.........GO TROJANS!!!

trojandave, I can remember quite a few conversations about success happening on the defensive end for the Trojans. They have bought into Coach Collins schemes and with that you have that success. Represent the SEOAL well and do it with D.

As a Portsmouth fan, many of us have been itching for this mythical rematch with the team that sent us home packing two years ago. I know most of the players were wanting a crack at em last year. This year is no different from the fan/ player stand point. If you polled many of us, Valley is the team we want to excercise a demon against. Players for the Trojans who were apart of that loss.....Wayne Evans, Dion Mckinley, Seth Bratchett, Len Collins....and the rest of the team were around the program, I guarantee everyone of them remembers....hopefully Valley won't make us regret our desire to face off with them again. They're capable of winning. But the way it's lined up for the Trojans....there's no hiding......Go Trojans

This game could go either way. I think Valley definately has the tools to beat the Trojans. We all know that Dion is going to come away with his points. Great players always do in these type of games. We just can't let the other players on the team beat us. We need to put a lot of pressure on Portsmouths guard. I think we can force some turnovers if we keep the pressure up. (Side not: I am very surprised the Seth Bratchett doesn't play that much. I think that he is the best option at guard that the trojans have on their team.)
Also, and I know I am biased, but I'll take this group of seniors at valley over anyone other school in the state. This group is so different than any I've ever seen. They are so determined and unselfish. A ton of workhorses that will sacrafice their own successes for the success of the enitre team. I'm so proud of the way this group carries themselves on and off the court.
Lastly, I hope coach is pushing the bleachers back in the gym and having the boys get lots off shots up on the side rims. It is definately different shooting on those rims at the convo. Hopefully we can hit more than 1 three ball this time.
GO INDIANS!!!

A lot has been said about how much Portsmouth wants Valley. Well, we'll be there. The whole District will be watching! Knock us out! Come on, knock us out! (ala Rocky 3 :lol: )

In all seriousness, the Indians will play with tremendous heart and two years ago has absolutely NOTHING to do with this game. If Portsmouth feels they need the extra motivation, then so be it. Valley's gonna show up and compete for 32 minutes! If Portsmouth is gonna win, they're gonna have to match the Indians heart and will to win for 32 minutes! I guarantee that win or lose the Indians won't back down. It's going to be a great atmosphere and a great game between two very good basketball teams!

I love this time of year!!!

Postby biggdowgg » March 7th, 2012, 6:30 pm

the only motivation the Trojans should have on their mind is the experience thay had last year and the desire to get back! Valley should just be another game in the way to where they want to be. they should already know that each and every game is going to be tougher and tougher and they will have to work harder and harder...I agree with everything Jesco has said, and I also agree the Portsmouth Trojans will also play with a lot of heart . both teams will no doubt leave it all on the floor at the convo.........

as for me...I have plenty of family that are Valley fans and grads and alum....so..its going to be a lomg night for some in the family :mrgreen:

hope it aint me :oops:

SOC 2 Football Champs, Division 5 Region 19 Football Runner-Up, 12-1 overall record
SOC 2 Basketball Champs, Sectional Champs, 18-4 overall record (and counting)

This group of kids and coaches from Valley understand the habit of winning!

With Portsmouth entering the game as the SEOAL champs, Sectional Champs and defending District & Regional Champs; they obviously understand as well. As biggdowgg said, both teams are gonna leave it all on the floor!

PHS 200 wins in district games vs Valleys 1
PHS speed vs Valley height
PHS seniors vs Valleys seniors
PHS knows how to win District championships, Valley doesn't, yet
this game will come down to who can handle the pressure of the one and done. Which team has a stronger will and foul shots. Valley has never been pressured by a defense like they will see Sat night. On the other hand, PHS can't have McKinley scoring 90% of PHS points. PHS also seems like they play close to the vest for a half. If McKinley doesn't get his supporting cast to take the pressure off him PHS will lose.
If PHS is firing on all cylinders they will win by 15. I see this game going back and forth until the 4 quarter, THEN, we will see the team that has a bigger heart and ice water running threw their veins!

I'm taking the TROJANS in this one

I realize you are exaggerating, but Portsmouth doesn't have 200 District wins and Valley has more than 1. Monday night was Valley's first win in a District game at the Convo, however, it wasn't Valley's first District win. And, a win on Saturday night wouldn't be the Indians' first District Championship.

Other than that, it's hard to argue with your breakdown of the game. I think those factors you listed are pretty accurate. It should be a very fun game to watch.
