    Since my team the New England Patriots didn’t make it to the Super Bowl I’m going to calm down and be nice this week. GO WHIRLIES

  • Tom said,

    I support Grimsley but I am glad to see Eastern Guilford made the poll. They’ve been through a lot out there this year.

  • why? said,

    Armstrong played against East Forsyth, he was held scoreless.

  • Andy said,

    Thanks for the info, one of my good sources in High Point told me Armstrong did not play in the EF game. Did he take any shots, play major minutes, was he sick, or did EF come up with some crazy defense? I know I’m asking a lot, but just curious. THANKS………

  • Greg said,

    Where are the HPC girls in your poll they just defeated the #7 team in your poll Saturday night they lost on a last second shot to the #6 team in your poll, what kind of research are you doing for this poll, EG has a losing record and are ahead of HPC, I think HPC plays alot tougher teams than EG, you need to check your voting machine for the missing votes, I will be looking next week for the correct update.

  • Andy said,

    Look at the conference records, EG is #1 in their league and High Point Central is 4th or 5th. High Point Central is having a bad year in girls basketball. They will get better in the future, this season they will have to get out the way and let some of the other girls teams have the headlines.

  • Greg said,

    The #2 team in your girls poll was defeated Tuesday night by HPC 52-51, looking foward to your updated poll this week, give credit where credit is due.
