  1. I was a bit shocked by that Ardrey Kell-Mt. Tabor score as well. I thought Tabor had a chance to go fairly far. Oh well….any given night….

  2. All of these games should be scheduled for Thursday night. I also just realized that SW was only a #11 but NW is a #3 seed. Considering the only team that best SW was NW twice and NW is #3, you would have thought SW could have been a #5-8 seed. This could be good for SW because some teams may do like Mt Tabor and sleep on them because they are a lower seed.

  3. Seeding is totally based on best 22 game record, AND where you finished in your conference, hence a team that plays in a strong conference and finishes 1st in that conference could be 18-4 and a team that finishes 2nd in their weak conference could be 21-1 but the 18-4 team gets a higher seed. It all evens out in the end and if you are the best you should be able to beat most anyone. Not a perfect system but seems to work OK.

  4. I have been watching on and off the scorers from NWG girls most of the season, have yet to see them in person, but it seems the main reason for their success is any night, any of 5-6 girls can lead them in scoring. They may be a tough team to beat and hopefully can bring the public school 4A champ home to Guilford county, first time since SW girls won it I believe. Good Luck!!!

  5. All Round Two games on Thursday and Round Three will go on Saturday and would think most Saturday games will be played on Saturday afternoon….

  6. Speaking of Ardrey Kell, didn’t Steven Santa Anna, now with the Elon Phoenix, play with/for Ardrey Kell last year when Kell made their run to the 4-A Finals????

  7. So, Andy, is it a safe assumption that you will be at NWG broadcasting since they are the only team not travelling??

  8. The Reynolds vs Nwest game should be a good one. I think i might come check that out since both of my squads have long road trips!!

  9. We are looking to be at NWG on Saturday…Hoping to hit the Big Game jackpot….At Shane’s Rib Shack(Sports in Focus) on Thursday 6-8pm and really hoping to be at NWG on Saturday for a Sectional Final…

  10. Surprised Smith lost in the first round. They had good guard play. But, I was told by an Eagle supporter they do not play as hard unless they are playing Dudley their biggest rivalry. They have got to get that fixed. Here is why a talented Dudley team will not win a state title.They have poor guard play, they play very lazy meaning they will be out hustled and, they hate playing defense. This is based on my personal observation of this team!

  11. Would love to see a Dudley-Northwest Guilford girls game on Saturday, but there is a lot of work to be done before that can happen….

  12. On one of our previous posts from yesterday we noted the scoring punch that Andy Pack and Jack Emerick showed for Northern Guilford in the Nighthawks 61-59 hard-fought win over Southern Guilford and what a game it was…
    Like Pack and Jack on the attack for NG and they scored 41 of NG’s 61 points…

    I have been talking for the past couple of years about the “throw-back” style that Jack Emerick employs and how that has been very effective for him and the Nighthawks…Drop the shoulder and work your way in and use the mini-hook shot to near perfection and he has his drop steps down to a science and have said how he reminds us of a smaller version of current Charlotte Hornet Al Jefferson with “Old School” and throw-back center/post style of play….And you could add in Jack Sikma from the old days and even a Zelmo Beatty and many more and a name I thought of today in the “Old School” post player mold was Dan Issel and here is just a bit of background on Issel for those who forgot him or never heard of Dan and back in the day with the Denver Nuggets they called him “The Horse”….I think he may have missed 15 games in 15 years in the pros…

    In his first season, Issel led the ABA in scoring with an average of 29.9 points per game, and pulled down 13.2 rebounds per game. He played in the 1971 ABA All-Star Game and was selected to the All-ABA Second Team. Issel shared ABA Rookie of the Year honors with Charlie Scott of the Virginia Squires.

    Issel played college basketball at Kentucky and began his pro career with the Kentucky Colonels of the ABA….I think he scored something like over 27,000 points in his pro basketball career and ranks just behind Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Karl Malone and one other pro player for the most points scored in NBA/ABA combined pro basketball history….

    Jack Emerick reminds us of those players from a ‘day gone by’, but his career is not over yet and that young man should be playing college ball for somebody next year…

    It has become Dan Issel/Jack Emerick awareness day at the site….Just studying the interesting style of play…Anybody remember Dan Issel???

    *****Jack Emerick obviously a smaller version of Dan Issel, Al Jefferson, Jack Sikma, Zelmo Beatty, Bill Laimbeer and others, but do remember when….Jack Sikma, with the Seattle Supersonics was actually 6’10 and he played like he was 6’3….Emerick, on the other hand plays big and his body control and back-down work is highly profitable for his NG team….Backing the opposing man down, slowly but surely, is a lost art in this day and time.*****

    +++++One of the fun parts of the Dan Issel history, was watching take his front teeth out before the game and get ready to go work.+++++

  13. One more piece to chew on and think maybe we are all a bit wired up today with no basketball games going on, on the high school hardwoods and the countdown is on until 8pm when N.C. State meets UNC in Raleigh…Got to wait a little while and we are most all usually deep into a high school basketball game by this time of day on Monday-Friday….

    But here is that nugget/morsel to chew on….Trade talk now that the season has closed out for some teams….

    If High Point Christian Academy would have sent Jalen Seegars back to Southern Guilford for a player to be named later, Southern Guilford would have been a lock for the NCHSAA 3-A Final Four….A Lock….

    Trade talk and I always loved that Player to be named Later, he was always the key to the trade….

    Just hypothetical and no ill will being promoted…Sometimes you just say, I wonder???

    Seegars is some kind of talent, there is no doubt about that…

  14. Good comparisons there Andy. I think another name you could throw in there is Tim Duncan. Jack has realized that it you use the board and have good footwork it makes scoring easier. So many kids today want to throw up 3’s but it’s obvious that Jack has been taught well by his coaches to use the board as your friend. Making a shot is difficult enough but trying to shoot them straight in all the time is even harder.

  15. You are so right on….That backboard and the square are the shooter’s best friend..

    You need a bucket to get you going, bank it in…On the layup drive, use that square…

    Jack Emerick uses that backboard and he does it well and it’s almost like, “Throw-Back Jack”, as in the the “Throw-Back” player from the past…

    I would almost say one of the first and most important things that you need to do when you arrive at the gym tomorrow night(new gym/road gym) is check out that backboard and study the square…

    In high school basketball and in school, the backboard and the blackboard/chalkboard are equally important….
