Basketball news from Friday night….

Just a few thoughts as we run this down….How did Greensboro Day give up 44 points to Rodney Purvis from the Upper Room? We were talking about Purvis here yesterday and had no idea that he could go off like that….Saying this in just a way of jest, “who wasn’t playing defense on Rodney Purvis”?

Why is Westchester playing the Forsyth Home School team????? You have the 3rd-rated player in the nation in Quincy Miller and Deuce Bello and CJ Plummer and now additional top-level talent in Josh Level, Keemon Ingram and Josh Burton and didn’t Ingram and Burton used to be at Southern Guilford? No real big deal if there were, just curious….But again, what are you doing playing the Forsyth Home Schoolers and you have one of the top teams in the country? Was this a scrimmage game?????

Oak Ridge, High Point Christian, and Caldwell Academy all got solid wins and the ORMA girls team will be one to watch this season, as will the new-and-improved Greensboro Day School girls……

Maybe all the teams are playing down early to start strong and then build up, but the Forsyth Home School team?????

  • Andy said,

    That one was sent to me, but I got it and changed and did the newspaper check too and thanks to all who sent or checked out scores for us…..

  • Bad Coaching said,

    Andy, Greensboro Day must be stacked to have two players that are 6’6″ and 6’7″ sitting on the bench all of the second half. Also, coaches should have game planned against Rodney better. How was he able to run in the open court alone. What about a box in one like Wesleyan did today. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that one.

  • Big Shots said,

    I saw Westchester and the attitudes are awful! The players do not respect the coach. Unreal!! Josh attended Westchester as a Freshman and did not enroll at his home school (Northeast or Southwest). Keemon played at Southern. Westchester is an interesting team. They should have left “Q” at Quality!

  • westchester haha said,

    westchester is ranked in the nation but play the home school team? wow i really think thats preparing there studs for division 1 ball

  • John said,

    @westchester haha Have you ever seen college schools like Duke or Unc schedule at the beginning of the year or say Ncaa football with teams like Alabama and LSU…there are games on the schedule that are easy wins to get the guys playing as a team. Also, this is a team with a lot of new guys that have never played together so why throw a powerhouse out the gates. So you know some of the upcoming games for them are

    Mt Zion
    Christ School
    Greenfield
    WOG
    City of Palms Classic
    Hoophall classic
    FCDS showcase
    Norfolk Christian
    Glaxco Invitational

    what ever team your with I bet your schedule does not come close to that

    Have a great day!
