    Another big win for my Cowboys!! I hope we get a third game in the conference championship!!

  • NWGHS fan said,

    Congrats to SW on a well deserved win. They were certainly the better team tonight, and made the plays down the stretch they needed to.

  • not as impressed with NW said,

    Got a chance to see the NW vs SW last night and I was not as impressed with the NW team as expected. They are a quick team but not very tall. They have a lot of 6’1 to 6’3″ kids but nothing over 6’4″. I love the Spicer PG player and I think Turner may be their best long term player because he can create his own shot. Many of the other players seem like they need others to help create shots for them other than an open 3 point shot. SW appears to have more play makers and a much better inside/outside game. I think NW can win a round or two in the playoffs but any team with a good big or solid on the ball defenders will shut this NW team down.

    not as impressed,

    If you love Spicer after seeing him last night, wait until you see him when he plays well. Last night wasn’t his best outing. Some was due to the opponent, but not all.

    Without getting into too long of an analysis, I believe that NW’s lack of or inconsistent outside shooting is more of a factor than their lack of size or playmaking ability. They had lots of open looks last night…..made very few.

    I dont’ think either team played as well last night as in the first meeting. But, it was a well contested game between 2 good teams. No chippy play; kids just competed hard. I’ve really enjoyed both games (though disappointed in the outcomes).
