Ahhhhhhh yessssssss !!!! it's great to see and I THINK I almost actually hear the "pounding" of keys on keyboards across Southern and Southeastern Ohio with opinions about who is where on the Pre-season rankings ... awesome stuff imo ... SEOPs is all about putting out as much information as WE can about ALL teams Below the Lancaster-Dixon Line ... the ONLY way that happens is when ALL of us post from knowledge that WE have - that's how WE ALL learn about the Teams Below the Line ... I love reading the posts as they ALL give me more info that I take with me when I get to put "eyes on" as many teams as I can during the season ... keep the info coming ! I've been doing this a long time - I CAN TAKE THE HITS ! I will agree to disagree ... I WILL ADMIT WHEN I AM WRONG ... the rankings are the best way I know to get the conversation rolling from PRESEASON through THE 3 Weeks of the Convo ... it doesn't get any better than this imo ...

... a few bits of info I took into consideration on some of the upper level teams ... I took into account Hoover for Waverly is out for the season ... I didn't know that Yates may not be playing hoops at Jackson BUT even without Nevan Y. Jackson is going to be GOOD ! they were GOOD last year - they will be BETTER this season ... VC IS ranked the lowest I have ever ranked them - simply because of ALL of the question marks - don't interpret that as VC is not going to be a solid team - Coach Combs and his staff don't play mediocre basketball down in McArthur - I just feel there is a lot of growing as a TEAM that needs done early in the season ... Logan returns THE best player in SEOhio in Bo Myers , add to that Caleb Bell/Coby Bell ... Wes Brooks, Landon Little, Layton Cassady ... 6 of the Logan top 7 players back from last years squad that finished tied with Fairland as my #1 in SEOhio ... Gallia will be good , probably better than good with potentially the most dominating player size wise Below the Line in Loveday - BUT when I compared the rest of the Blue Devils to what Logan brings to the table I give the edge to Logan ... as far as size goes Logan will be fine - I am not totally sure that Landis (gone due to graduation) was the leading rebounder for LHS ... Logan entertains Gallia Academy during the regular season with the possibility of the #1 ranking on the line ... gotta love when a plan comes together ...

PFloyd,
Put this on your calendar...have you ever been to The Oven in Piketon?
Opening weekend of the season at Piketon on December 1st:
White Oak Girls vs Piketon Girls
Southeastern vs Portsmouth
Athens vs Waverly...I think from my records last time Waverly played at Piketon was 1968-69 or 1969-70
Chesapeake vs Piketon
Should be a great evening of basketball before a standing room only crowd at the crossroads (Routes 23 & 32) of southern Ohio.
... I have been to the Oven ! ... it's been a few seasons as it was back when NOW Head Coach Evan Legg was leading the Streaks at PG LOL ... some excellent games for the opening weekend ! Waverly vs Athens ?!!! opening game for both teams ... Wow ! Coach Davis' & the Peake' taking on your Red Streaks - nice !!! ... going up against the ZT Classic in that first weekend of hoops ! ... I haven't seen the lineup for the ZT Classic yet (heard from the Amanda CC folks that ACC is playing against Paint Valley at Zane Trace's get together ... I'm getting psyched ! LOL ...

Hearing a lot that Davis is not playing basketball this season. Will be a significant 6’5 loss for a school who rarely has size. Talented kid, hope he ends up playing....if not he’ll be a big ol dude on the football field.

Maybe a couple bench players not playing either

Alexander is a much stronger team then what you have them at. With a 6'11" post player who can control all areas in the paint, offense and defensively that can destroy anyone who comes in his area and extremely strong shooters always in the corner waiting for a kick out and the fastest guard in the TVC. They are returning many players from last year along with four returning starters. Much more experience with playing in big games this year. Looking forward to the Alexander Athens game. WAY underrated!!
I agree that they are a little too low but disagree with the fastest guard in the TVC. The fastest and quickest guard in the TVC is Elijah Williams from Athens.
If Elijah happens to get past Kearns then his shot is being packed off the glass by Terry.

VC has 5 games against the top 8 and 6 against the top ten in the preseason rankings! Yikes!! I believe this is the lowest starting spot (25th) for the Vikings in years. Lots of youth on this years team. Coach Combs always gets the most out of the kids, so although it will be a challenge, it should be fun to watch! Nice job as always pfloyd! Looking forward to seeing you in McArthur a few times this winter!
Where did you see Vc's schedule? looked on the website and couldn't find it.

Piketon will take a step back this year without Perdue, but will still be a good team I just don't know if they are high as you have them rated. I do like Ironton that high in the mix, I look for them to take strides. I also like seeing Jackson up in the top 8 with Oak Hill not, good to see Jackson kids staying at Jackson.

football life - it could very well be 2 days - has been 2 days forever (I believe it went 1 day 1 time only) ... I have not seen a 2 DAY schedule of games, when I have gone to Arbiterlive it only shows 1 day of games (hence my statement) ... IF YOU know that it is in fact 2 days - with those games listed - THAT IS AWESOME !!! I always start my hoops season at the ZT Tipoff Classic ! 2 days full of games MY KIND A EVENT ! "eyes on all the teams" I can all season - ZT Classic has me camped behind the score table , eating dogs and twizzlers all day long - letting the teams come to me LOL ... thanks for your input !!!

Just looked at Logan Elm's schedule on Arbiterlive ... it show the Braves playing at the ZT Tip Off Classic on Friday November 30th ...

6:45 ... Bloom Carrol vs Jackson
8:30 ... Logan Elm vs Bishop Ready


BUT when looked at the schedules for McClain & Jackson ... neither show them playing at the ZT Tip Off Classic ... shows Jackson's first game of the season not until the 4th of Dec vs Wellston ... McClain's first game also Dec 4th but vs Lynchburg Clay ... usually someone "in the know" will post a thread about the ZT Tip Off Classic with ALL of the details & match-ups ... I HOPE the Friday Nov.30th menu of games is correct ! - 2 more SEOhio teams to get an early "eyes on" /napkin stat/early season idea as what they have in both Jackson & Logan Elm ... LE USUALLY plays in the ZT get-together so it sounds right that they would be scheduled ... BC was at the ZT Classic last year vs Vinton County ... this might be the first time I have seen Jackson scheduled to play at ZT in all the years I have been attending - BUT it's good to see one my top 8 teams early on to gauge their improvement throughout the season ...

Wow !!! November 30th DOES NOT sound that far away !!! ... the Athens Shriners TVC Preview is usually on the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving - I get to watch the majority of teams in the TVC for a couple of quarters each - I KNOW "previews" are not anything to get much from BUT I DO GET a program with the rosters for the participants ! ... you also see the athletes on the teams, I look at the fundamentals or lack of fundamentals each team has or doesn't have ... the good TEAMS whether they "show much" or not in the Preview - still show the fundamentals that the coaching staff has coached/taught ... I go for the hot dogs/twizzlers and the opportunity to give 93Bulldog a hard time ! besides I get an opportunity to run into lots of the seops posters from the TVC, hoops friends from all of the TVC schools ... Kevin Wiseman - sports director for the Athen Messenger is usually there ... it's a great way to touch bases with friends/fans of high school basketball ...

... I totally enjoy being able to see teams during the holiday break BUT with the change in routine, the holidays themselves - those holiday break games are tough on teams ... but it's that way for all of the teams ... I've got that Dec 28 matchup between the Purple and GAHS circled on my Hoops calendar - should be a good one ! potentially my Pre-season #1 vs #2 to see who belongs at the top of the heap in SEOhio hoops ...

Holiday tourneys are great for the fans and for the revenue.Plus it adds an opportunity to see those matchups you may never have the chance to see. Good for the sport, and the young men just want to play basketball

Loveday needs to put on some muscle. I feel like if Logan puts someone short and strong that can push him around like a Ruff boy then they should be able to contain him.

When you take a look at loveday. You can tell he is a little bit stronger and thicker. Also think we may be calling him 7’2” or 7’ 3” by this season. When your that tall you can add 20 to 30 lbs and it is virtually unnoticeable

South Point will be ahead of Chesapeake...South Point will probably finish in 2nd place in the OVC.. 3rd at worse. Chesapeake, Fairland, and Rock Hill will be at the bottom with Portsmouth in the middle most likely but wouldn't surprise me if they were towards the bottom....Gallia, SP and Ironton in my opinion will be your top teams...Gallia has size and speed the pointers good guard play with a good big man and very deep bench.. Ironton will finish 3rd by bullying weaker teams,,Physical play....

So how tall is Loveday? He stood out nicely playing his trombone in the band lol. He looks 7’0 to me. 7’2 or 7’3 wouldcertwinly add to the problem of playing against him.

How about Terry kid? Has he grown?
