Re: 2018-2019 Gallia Academy Basketball Schedule

I agree about Point and RV being played only once. At least until those 2 get competitive again. Logan and Warren are both great additions and Africentric as well. I would say at least this year and next to add someone like Unioto, Chillicothe, etc. Not necessarily those teams but the quality of tho...

Re: Gallia Academy @ River Valley 12/4

I would never want to see them try to embarrass high school kids that way. But the 91 wasn't running the score up. It's just RV is that bad and Gallia is that good. As for Bostic I agree he did a lot for GA basketball. I'm not sure who Gary will lean on when he needs an experienced person to give hi...

Re: 2018-2019 Gallia Academy Basketball Schedule

So again it's a wash with many of those teams comparable to several OVC team now and RV, etc. The schedule is no better now than it was 4 years ago and maybe not as good. Records mean nothing. It's the strength of the teams you're playing. I want to see this team get challenged given the talent we h...

Re: 11/30 #8 Athens vs #2 Gallia Academy

This GA team will easily get out of the district or at least they should. I still say the talent coupled with a weak OVC and a 7 footer is the perfect recipe for the best team ever at Gallia. I can say this even after watching them not play their best against Athens. But it's early and neither team ...

Re: 11/30 #8 Athens vs #2 Gallia Academy

This could be close for awhile but I'm seeing Gallia big in this one. There's no way anyone in SE Ohio should be able to compete with this team. This is the BEST talent GA has had in it's entire history and throw in a 7 footer and that is a perfect recipe for success. They will run over the OVC this...

Re: Coal Grove vs Gallia Academy

Gallia BIG in this one. The OVC is a 2 horse race between Gallia and Fairland and Fairland has a sizeable lead at the moment. But Gallia is clearly second with the remainder of the league eating dust.

Re: Gallia Academy @ fairland 12/19

I don't disagree that Fairland has an edge in experience but only slightly. Remember that several of these Gallia kids have been playing varsity for 2-3 years as well. Maybe not as much as the Fairland kids but only slightly less. I hate to build in excuses ahead of time just in case we would lose ...

Re: Gallia Academy @ fairland 12/19

First real test for the Blue Devils as the first 5 teams have proven so far to be pretty weak teams. I still think the Devils have the talent and the ability to make this an interesting game. Sticking to my original prediction of an OT affair with fairland winning 63-59 But enjoy this one bc the Blu...

Re: Gallia Academy @ fairland 12/19

I also think the emotions will be high for this one. As far as Howell goes I think its the opposite here. He seems to have trouble against Gallia more than the Gallia kids have against him. I don't have the stats to back that up though. I may be totally wrong here too

Jackson struggled to beat Meigs. Once again this one will be another laugher. Not trying to be rude but no one on the schedule can compete with the Big Blue except Fairland. And I think Gallia will split with them this year. As for the Jackson game I will lower my score totals as the Devils are not ...

I don't see Athens being able to handle all the talent and experience on this Gallia team. Gallia at home and loaded this year, I will take a wild guess and say Gallia 71 Athens 51
