From the SHAC, I would say the Green Devil's of North Adams will be at the top along with Ripley. North Adams has several back along with A bunch of reserves that went undefeated from what I have heard. Ripley has some of their better players back for next year. Peebles has no Junior this year so they will be playing alot of youngsters.
... EagleNut14 - thanks for the heads up on Eastern Pike for next year - I have not had the chance to see the Eagles or see a roster of the grade levels ... returning all of the starters from this season's excellent team for next year - sounds like all is well in Beaver Eastern for next season too !EagleNut14 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 26, 2018 1:49 pmWhat about Eastern Pike? 20-3 with only loses to Oak Hill, Africentric (2 top 10 teams in D3) and a good Ripley team. With all starters returning.pfloyd wrote: ↑Sun Feb 25, 2018 9:34 pmCount on seeing Athens, Warren, Sheridan, Chillicothe, Piketon , Logan, Zane Trace, Portsmouth, Logan Elm as part of the Elite 8 or very close to the top 8 going into next year ... I was writing those off the top of my head .... I'm sure there are others that should be right there for consideration as well FU will be there with a lot of freshmen playing up this season, Fairland is said to be looking good for next year as well ... some of the powers of a few years ago - Chesapeake, Whiteoak, Alexander , Lucasville Valley have groups of kids ready to move those schools back into contention ... NEXT YEAR will be a great year for SE Ohio hoops AGAIN !

They return virtually everybody, including PG Ethan Wilson, SF Charlie Large, and P Reed Carrico, who scored 23 points as a freshman vs. Wheelersburg in the Jackson sectional. No team I've seen this year played harder than Ironton did against the Burg. Beware the Tigers of Coach Mark Lafon next year.
... good to hear that Ironton will be on the road back to where we are used to seeing them on the hardwood ... thanks trojandave ...
for Trojan fans I fall back to a quotr fro the ole ball coach.."The best thing about freshmen and sophmores, they become juniors and seniors" Coach Collins will have them playing hard and improving
Pfloyd: thought you may want to know. Beau Justice was just named The Dll Gulf South Conference player of the year as a Junior. Congrats young man.
Don't forget the Eastern Warriors. The league in general should be competitive again. There's a lot of young talent coming up in schools too. Should be another fun year!Hoopie74 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 26, 2018 6:51 pmFrom the SHAC, I would say the Green Devil's of North Adams will be at the top along with Ripley.

This ought to make the Belpre/Miller tourney game at Meigs 2/27 about an even game!
Belpre/Miller game maybe should have been even, but wasn't! Both Belpre girls and boys both got clobbered in the tourney by teams they had beaten twice during the season.
... it has always been a difficult thing to beat an opponent 3 times - ALWAYS ... hard to get those W's from the first 2 times outta the players heads then throw in that obviously what the opponent did the first 2 times didn't work so THEY are still making adjustments while the winner of the 2 games? not so much ... tough to get that 3rd win imo ...
... excellent ! great to see that Beau is making a name for himself at the next level - outstanding player, one of the elite player from the Southeast District ... congratulations Beau Justice !

... It's time to head down Rte 33 to A'town ... I have nothing in the first game between Sheridan vs Waverly - wish them both the best ... the nightcap ?!! Warren Local vs the U ?!!! dang it ! - both excellent basketball programs, 2 outstanding coaches in Coaches Maddox and Hoops ... I have gotten to know Coach Hoops & his staff over the last 4-5 years and Coaches Maddox, Coffman, Colgrove, Mitchem, Padgett are the best around & I've known them all for years now ... I've made sure I'm not wearing colors that will tick either school off LOL - went with the always neutral 2016 Pfloyd Tour Purple Hippo shirt -THAT'S as neutral as anyone can get ! LOL ... best of luck to BOTH teams tonight ... as usual there will be rundowns on both D@ Semi's after the games - Basketball 30 night #2 , Gms #3 & #4 !!! 12 gms in 4 days !!! ...
How bout them Waverly Tigers!!!
Can’t wait for your napkin stats.
Can’t wait for your napkin stats.
They wont be good next year below 500 team all give you odds and lay 1k on it anytime you want. Will be the 4th best team in Pike County well as long as the Christian academy doesnt bring in a ringer thenn they will be 5th best.Smokyhollowbandit wrote: ↑Mon Feb 26, 2018 4:22 pmDon’t be hating on my Redstreaks.

I can see Piketon in the elite 8 next season. Yes losing a player like Perdue will hurt the Redstreaks but I don’t think it will hurt like everyone thinks. Piketon will still be returning a lot of guys (Lightle, Blanton, Thacker, Little, Mathews) and I also see a lot of younger guys contributing. I wouldn’t sleep on Piketon next year
Piketon seems to always put a decent to good team on the floor
If they get new coaches and a new style and work on shooting they can contend for mid pack SVC. If they play same style same coaches will be below 500. They have nobody who can score enough consistently at this point.
... Alex Blanton , Preston Thacker, Scott Lightle, Isaac Little, Blake Reader, Tyrae Harris, Jacob Mathews ALL return for Piketon next year ... 3 starters, with Little getting more than enough PT to be considered a starter - 4 starters returning to the Red Streaks lineup ... Tanner Perdue does not get replaced - BY ANY team in the SVC ... he's one of THOSE elite players - end of story ... BUT as is the case EVERY single year - the best of the best graduate , WE always ask "Who will step up ? " with programs such as Piketon there will be multiple players "stepping up" ... PHS has talent from the JV & freshmen teams - size, scorers, ball handlers - I've seen them ! I was impressed by THEM when I saw them ! ... Coach Legg x 2 , Coach Kelly & Co. will be just fine in my opinion ... they will ranked in the preseason accordingly ... Pike County with Piketon, Eastern Pike, Waverly STILL in the mix in the "one & done" season - good stuff right there !!! next year ? look for more of the same ! at least from Piketon/Eastern Pike ... if anyone is losing BIG it's Waverly losing - Howell,Remington/Adrain - 3 OUTSTANDING players at both ends of the floor ... BUT I trust Coach Robertson to get THAT job done as well ! ...
While you’re busy bashing my streaks. We’ll be preparing for a district championship game!
We can all revist this thread next winter and see who is correct. I hope Iam dead wrong. Im just a realist and been on all sides as an all league player fan and coach for over 40 years.
I was District coach of the year and I’d not go where you have went.
I’m a 5’10 blonde with huge boobs, a skinny waste line and legs that go all the way to my neck. Also starred in several movies in Hollywood. Just a few of my credentials.
I know bashing kids and players is your specialty but at least have the decency to wait for the season to be over. Coach
