Tip tourney...

Bedford will have to play a very good game to beat the Warriors. They have to smart shots, minimize turnovers,get a few fast breaks, and definitely play solid defense. Everetty has many, many threats from the outside and hit them all. The Bisons will have to play up close and personal the whole game to win. Although Everett has some hot hands, I see Bedford sneaking by the Warriors.
Good luck to both teams.

Here's my take on the potential Everett vs. Bedford matchup:
Bedford boasts a roster full of athletes. This could work to their advantage if they use them properly. Obviously Troy Harris will be their key contributor, so if Everett wishes to win the game they must first wish to contain Troy. I just don't see them being able to do that. If the Warriors force Troy to poor bad shots and hold him under 20 then I can see Everett winning, but if he plays well then Everett will be at distinct disadvantage. One thing that may give Everett a little bit of advantage is their depth. Bedford is notorious for only playing a few guys throughout the game, so if the Warriors can somehow wear down Troy and his fellow starters then Everett could sneak by. Again, I don't see them being able to handle the offense-minded Harris and the stellar athleticism of the Bisons. Hopefully it will be a good game; one that can get the Stampede rowdy early in the season.

Most of your assumptions are based on the opinions from last years tip off tournament. This year's bison team is totally opposite. Bedford didn't sub much last year, bc they could play a slow-tempo half court game with one of the biggest guys in the county. This year there will be much more substituting and a quicker game.

Yeah, I realized that I was basing all of my thoughts on years past. That's why I said the Bisons are notorious for not subbing much.

and i'm explaining that it will be different this year without relying on the big guy inside. But i'm sure bison1 and 11th man know more than me, they play basketball.
