    Andy,
    It appears both the Smith boys and girls have a good team this year. Do you have any pre-tournament Little 4 predictations ? I know the schedules come out on the 13th but how would you match up the teams ? What are some good pre-tournament teams and individual match ups that you would like to see?

    I had the whole thing written up and the captcha code would not allow my comment to go through, but here is some of what I was saying….

    Boys you should see 1)GDS, 2)NEG, 3)Page, 4)Smith…..Middle of the pack Northern(5) and possibly NWG(6)…..Let’s go Grimsley7) and then Ragsdale(8)….You could see any of those top 3-4 teams in the finals and GDS is very deep, but so is NEG and Page is extremely quick and Smith is not as deep, but they do have Tracy Gathings and Drew Williams and the outside shooting of Adrian Wimbush…..GDS and NEG would make a great final and remember Page was in the finals last year and NWG upset #1 GDS in Round One and then Northern knocked off #2 NEG, also in Round One….Northern and PAGE ended up in the Championship Game and NWG and Ragsdale played for third place…..

    On the girls end we shoud see something with Page, GDS, and Smith up there at the top and then Northern and Northwest in the middle of the pack and Ragsdale, Grimsley and NEG in the lower tier…..You could see any of those Top Three teams going at it in the finals and Northern could make a run….NWG has always played well in this tournament…..They have been right up there at or near the Pizza Hut finals for the past 5-6 years….GDS has the best depth with this year’s squad that we have ever seen…..Thorpe, Wilkerson, Hairston, Milton and more form a real solid nucleus for the Bengals….Ragsdale, Grimsley and NEG are building and it is still gonna take those programs a few more years to get back there near the top….If Smith can get more steady guard play, then they have a chance…..Greer, Lynn, Phillips and more have all there before and Brandi Robinson has been the top Smith girls scorer in many of their recent games…Smith can be there, but GDS looks like they are ready to make their deepest run ever in this tournament….The Lady Bengals just don’t have the experience of playing in the later rounds of the Pizza Hut….They must get to Round Two to have a chance to appreciate Round Three…….Page has the key(Kea), but will she see single coverage at any time in the tournament…. Time to play find the open man/woman, cause somebody is going to have to be open….

    Should be a lot of fun and GDS boys and NEG boys should be your favorites with Page and Smith standing ready in the wings to take over and for the girls, Page, GDS and Smith have the best shot at the title and we’ll see if NG and NWG have anything to say about these bold or not so bold predictions….
