Saw the scrimmage. GDS won as predicted but it certainly wasn’t easy. HPCA dominated the early part of the game building a double-digit lead. GDS hung around just close enough to stay in the game. There were a lot of fouls for HPCA and with it being a regulation game that hurt them since they don’t have the same depth as GDS. GDS was able to get stuff around the rim in the second half as HPCA wore down and were able to hold off a few late runs for the win. Both teams will be really good this year, GDS is just a bit better and certainly bigger right now.

    Andy,

    I too was at the game and I sure left with a different take. GDS beat a tremendously outsized HPC team. Their largest player was 6″6″ Jordan Weethy who is a wing player. HPC has maybe 2 or 3 other players over 6′ tall. For GDS to struggle with them was embarrassing. If HPC gets some additional size they could be very good. Their boys showed a lot of heart.

    GDS doesn’t have a true point guard. In the offense they run this is not good. I thought they looked disorganized and confused at times. I see a LONG season ahead for GDS. It will be interesting to see who is right. You or I.

    What offense does GDS run?

    In the halfcourt you have three guards with Jalen Ross to be your point and you’ll start with Reed Lucas and Robert Kleinmann on the wings with Luke Thomas and others waiting in the wings…There are more players that will create depth…John Terry can run any of the three guard spots and I wouldn’t hesitate to use John in the post for some rebounding help if I needed it….

    John Terry is a kid that I know, that will work……Terry will tary and he can carry the ferry up and down the court….In a few more years I will stack him up against any guard in the state….He knows what kind of work ethic the coaches are looking for and he doesn’t mind working with the pass-first, shoot-second, concept in mind or in place…

    Up front you have two post spots to fill from among three very capable players with Jordan Robertson, Quayshad Williams and Jaleel Roberts……
