This list is super impressive. I wonder when the last time was that D6 has ever had this many semi-finalists...if ever

Looking forward to the BA-Blairsville rematch tonight. Blairsville took the last meeting 44-37 in the district semis. Very contrasting styles as BA wants to get up and down the floor and put points on the board. The Blue Devils have scored 69+ in each of their last 3 games. Blairsville on the other hand wants to get an early lead, run their sets and take time off the clock. The Lady Bobcats give up an average of 32 PPG and haven't given up more than 37 points in a game since the start of districts, including 13 last week. Both teams feature big time players. Blairsville is led by senior Seton Hill recruit Rene Enterline and her 20 PPG while BA is led by super sophomore Alli Campbell (26.2). BA starts 1 senior while Blairsville starts 2 so both teams should be back in the mix next year.

Good luck to both teams!!!

A nice side note to the PM game. Dr Rebecca Wincek-Bateson, an Optometrist in Indiana, paid for the charter buses. These buses are for players, Students, and ANY PM fan that wants a ride. Becky grew up outside Clymer and played for PM in the mid to late 80s. (I think, I know she is younger than me)

Also. The Pm game is being streamed live on the NFHS network. It's a 10 dollar monthly subscription. Well worth it. I have watched pretty much any high school sport you can name on that sight. And from every state. Not ESPN but usually good quality.

west catholic wins on a last second lay up after holding the ball in a tie game from 1:05 left to 5 seconds..... Anyone who really doesn't think a shot clock is necessary, I don't know how you defend it. So many playoff games this post season has just seen teams stalling in the fourth quarter all around. When you are down 1 point with two minutes left you shouldn't have to foul the opponent to get a chance for them to miss free throws

:o)sounds like a crying clown.  Guard them close, trap, double team, get a 5 second call. get a steal. I personally liked the old days. 5 fouls and you got a 1 and 1.  no waiting until 7 fouls and even after 10 fouls it is still a 1 and 1. no two shot fouls for a reach. 
Shot clock would be joke in high school. who is going to enforce/run the clock, reset it.  Half the time the refs are pretty much incompetent as it is, despite there being three of them out there. .

If only a clock could enforce a shotclock?


Ive been pro shotclock on here for plenty of different games, teams and scenarios. Not a crying clown just stating an obvious flaw in a horrible system.
