Re: Metamora Hoops News?

The crew was very very bad except for the ref that wasn't pregnant. It went both ways. The game was way too fast for the other 2. I don't think Metamora made a 3 point shot. If they did it was not enough to win. yeah, let's be honest here. i wasn't there, but c'mon, you have an area super team with...

Re: Metamora Hoops News?

Did I read a bit of whining by DG in today’s PJS? From people I talked to that were at the game, Redbirds just played bad. What? Metamora thinks were screwed by the officials? Say it ain't so. The crew was very very bad except for the ref that wasn't pregnant. It went both ways. The game was way to...

Re: 2A Sectional Matchups

El Paso-Gridley had just a typical game (Shot 55% but too many late turnovers.) EPG was down 20-11 in the first quarter, but came back to tie 31-31 at halftime when Jack Weber banked in a 35-foot shot at the buzzer. In the third quarter, EPG scored ten straight for a 43-36 lead and with seven minut...

So can anyone tell me as to why Blue Ridge is no longer a part of the McLean County Tourney or HOI??
they left the hoic for, i think, the little okaw. i believe that conference is disbanding, so not sure what blue ridge will do.

Re: 1A-2A Regional Seedings

Playing at Western Hall in Macomb is nowhere near close to a home game for West Hancock. it was that night for sure. i'm hoping eureka can get by m-r and rematch west hancock. that macomb game was really good. west hancock will have a problem inside if dorethy can't play. he helped clog the lane de...

Re: Metamora Hoops News?

Wondering how the parents are holding up in Metamora? All good now that they've won a few? I have seen a few games and have spoken to some in community and it seems to be a non issue. Would you like to know anything about the teams outlook? i would--i haven't seen them play, but clearly an up and d...

Re: 1A-2A Regional Seedings

I would look for a possible upset at Tremont. Quest and Farmington could be sleepers. But you are correct, WH might as well be playing at home. That side of the bracket is much weaker. quest is the sleeper here. i think it's a bad matchup for dee-mack. quest beat them 44-42 early in the year. dee-m...

DeeMack gets the #2 seed and is rewarded with a possible rematch with host Tremont. Can’t get tougher than that. in their gym, nonetheless. as a eureka fan i'd much rather take my chances with west hancock (if we can get by m-r). wh has been struggling and we played them to one point at macomb, bas...

Re: Hmmmm, interesting!!!

I really like the concept, if they make Saturday a championship Saturday. I have long been an advocate in playing all title games on Saturday night with the present format. Fans do not attend the 3rd place games, except for schools Involved. championship saturday is a great idea. not sure how frida...

Re: Mid Illini rank

I have not seen Metamora this year. What is going on over there? I understand there have been some injuries, but still, with all that talent has to extremely disappointing season. How is it that Hall and Dietz are scoring so little??
