Maybe I missed it but did Meigs get a player or two back from injury or are they just figuring it out since the start of the season?
Bartrum came back from Injury and has averaged about 6-8 points a game (for some reason most of these are foul shots) but he is the PG in which has allowed Mattox (19ppg), Musser (12ppg) and Mahr (12ppg) more opportunities to put up shots. Them 3 are averaging 43 points a game in the last 7 games, and then Kennedy has been hitting the boards and averaging 10 points a game. Then some key points from the bench.

Totally different team then what we seen the first 4 games.


Mattox has been playing with the most constancy

If only he could hit his foul shots, he has went 4 for 12 from the line the last 2 games and he is usually spot on at the charity stripe.

If we didn't have a game, I'd go down and watch Parkersburg at Warren on 1/17, Floyd. That could be a very interesting basketball game between two talented teams with contrasting styles.

Even though the Trojans lost by 19 , unless you was at this game you can't we the fight that the Trojans put up, we all know Cairo and is stacked , Even with out van horn , but the Trojans fought most of the night down from 8 to 10 points,,down 9 at halftime ,cut it to three at the 2 minute mark in the third ,it wasn't till in into the fourth qtr that Cairo and pulled away,im not taking anything away from fairland because I really think if they Get van Horne back we will be watching them in Columbus.

I just want our kids to get props for the fight they put up.

Van Horn, a 6-8 junior, will be out 4 to 6 weeks according to Ironton Tribune. Dragons still had enough to beat Portsmouth 68-47 on Tuesday. Isaic Howell, 6-5 senior from Gallipolis is averaging about 20 points and 10 rebounds a game for Fairland.

I really am not sure why this site is dying down? The site needs something to pick it back up to get more traffic running through it. Maybe that is a topic that could be discussed. I know their use to be a pickem that went on but I haven't seen that in a while either.

Sites like jjhuddle & preps declined in traffic with the evolution of social media. People choose to post & read those because there is accountability in posting under a real name as opposed to hiding behind a user name. Im sure there are other reasons, but there is no denying traffic declined as twitter & facebook expanded.

Northwest has 2 wins on the season with wins over Whiteoak (Dec 6) and West Union (Dec 17). They have competed in a couple of other games including a 2 point loss at West. The Mohawks played 7 straight road games and finally returned home after a month on the road. Maybe enough to get them off the End Table :)

Plus it always goes down after football season. Pushing 3000 members on this new board isn't bad for these sites after a little over a year.

A lot of the people reading and not posting are due to a certain mod that has a power strikes ego so they are afraid to post because back when there was a lot of members posting you could have some playful back and forth banter but because of a couple cry baby's that can dish out a shot but run to a mod when someone gives them one back people like to have fun with out always being so serious

Floyd my Eagles defense has shined the last 2 games only giving up 35 points to Western Pike and 40 to Notre Dame. Still think it may be time to put those Oaks up in the Elite 8 they are a very good team.

Fairland 81
Athens 77 OT a final


I actually recapped this one last night . I got home from Chesapeake after a 2 hour drive, looked up/recorded all of the Saturday night results ... at about 1 am I started typing my game recap ... at 2:45am I went to post it ... the website flashed up a screen that said I wasn't logged in , I logged back in AND ALL OF THE GAME RECAP WAS GONE !!!! ... I tried back through everything and got nothing - it was lost ... I was tired ... I crashed ...

... it was a GREAT GAME to watch from the cheap seats ... 2 excellent teams - an Athens team with lots of talent, trying to make a statement vs one of IF not THE best team in SEOhio ... Athens having lost big to Parkersburg in their last outing traveled to Chesapeake (a neutral court wink wink LOL) to take on a Fairland team who HAS a proven identity BUT was now looking for a NEW identity due to the untimely , possibly season ending injury to the Preseason pick to be the D3 POY Kollin Van Horn ... I as a "observer" went into the game looking for answers to come from this game - what I got , what we all took away was last nights' game was one of the best, most competitive games any of us have had a chance to watch this season !Great stuff !

Athens showed me that they are as deep as any team in Southern/Southeastern Ohio - Coach Cozart played 10 players - the 10 are legitimate basketball players who contribute in a positive way when they are on the floor - I KNEW AHS was deep but I had seen all of that talent working TOGETHER as it did last night ... Griffin Lutz is THE outstanding PG Below the Lancaster-Dixon Line ... he controlled the tempo of the game in regulation with what he did do and what he could do with and without the ball ... Lutz penetrated the lane for 27 points on the night while dishing to teammates Justin Hines (20pts) and Logan Maxfield (12pts) in all Athens put up 58 points IN THE PAINT, AT THE RIM ... as Fairland was having a difficult finding the mark from inside or outside Lutz was able to push the ball offensively vs FHS ... for 2 1/2 quarters Athens owned the game ... at 5:24 in the 3rd Athens had a 10pt cushion leading 36-26 ... even to the end of the 3rd Athens sat on a 45-38 lead going into the final period of regulation ... BUT the tide was turning as Coach Speed & staff adjusted to not having Van Horn in the paint to stop penetration, the adjustment was to 1) force Griffin Lutz to give up the ball early before he could get turned North South 2) with the ball out of Griffin Lutz's hands they put on ball pressure on everyone else - forced them to make decisions with the ball that they were used to doing - it worked - the FHS defensive pressure turned the Bulldogs over 9 times in the 3rd period and 6 more times in the 4th/OT ... at the 5:34 mark of the 4th period Fairland finally had clawed it's way back to take the lead on an Isaiah Howell triple 51-50 ... game on ... game on meant that Fairland would continue to benefit from going to the FT line the Dragons went 26/32 from the FT line after intermission ... Athens was called for 25 fouls in the game Fairland 19 - the difference being Athens needing to foul down the stretch in OT - so imo the fouls were even on the game ... final 2 possessions of regulation encapsulated this game for Athens in a 54-54 tie game ... AHS with the ball ... the Bulldogs ran clock to get what they thought would be the last shot ... who's hands do you want the ball in ? I know right - Griffin Lutz had not been stopped for 31 minutes, put the ball in his hands and roll the dice ... G Lutz came through as the PG went untouched to the rim Athens 66 Fairland 64 ... time out FHS :06 on the clock ... if Lutz is THE man for Athens Isaiah Howell is his counterpart for Fairland ... the ball came in to Ty Staten ... TS looked for Howell, drove to outside the left block, double teamed, Staten as time expired split the defenders and dropped the 8 footer cleanly - the fg was Ty Staten's ONLY fg for the entire game ... 66-66 time to go OT ... outstanding stuff right there imo ... OT had Fairland getting the lead on Keedrick Cunningham's triple, followed by floater for 2 more ... Griffin Lutz countered with 9 points in the OT ... it was not enough as FHS went to the line for 10 FTs knocking down 8 ... Fairland 81 Athens 77 OT a final ...

I told him Athens was a team that "grew up" last night vs Fairland ... the motor that makes Athens go IS (surprise) Griffin Lutz BUT last night the other pieces came together ... outstanding games offensively and defensively were put in by everyone who stepped on the floor for AHS ... standouts from my cheap seat location - Justin Hines repeatedly physically took it to the hole on the inside 20 points, battling Howell on the inside - outstanding ... Logan Maxfield - never backed down inside, crashed the boards and put up 12 points ... Dalton Cozart found the range - something Athens HAS TO HAVE - an outside the arc threat - Cozart hit a couple timely triples for AHS and he got to the rim on another couple drives for fgs ... the MO for beating Athens for as long as Griffin Lutz has been there is to "take the ball out of his hands and make the rest of the team make decisions with the ball" it will continue to be that from opponents ... Athens WILL BE a "player" in the post season ... they lost but won last night - found out they can play with the best, found out that they have 10 quality pieces to the puzzle called TEAM , TEAM confidence took a step forward even in the loss to Fairland ...

Athens 77 OT a final


I actually recapped this one last night . I got home from Chesapeake after a 2 hour drive, looked up/recorded all of the Saturday night results ... at about 1 am I started typing my game recap ... at 2:45am I went to post it ... the website flashed up a screen that said I wasn't logged in , I logged back in AND ALL OF THE GAME RECAP WAS GONE !!!! ... I tried back through everything and got nothing - it was lost ... I was tired ... I crashed ...

... it was a GREAT GAME to watch from the cheap seats ... 2 excellent teams - an Athens team with lots of talent, trying to make a statement vs one of IF not THE best team in SEOhio ... Athens having lost big to Parkersburg in their last outing traveled to Chesapeake (a neutral court wink wink LOL) to take on a Fairland team who HAS a proven identity BUT was now looking for a NEW identity due to the untimely , possibly season ending injury to the Preseason pick to be the D3 POY Kollin Van Horn ... I as a "observer" went into the game looking for answers to come from this game - what I got , what we all took away was last nights' game was one of the best, most competitive games any of us have had a chance to watch this season !Great stuff !

Athens showed me that they are as deep as any team in Southern/Southeastern Ohio - Coach Cozart played 10 players - the 10 are legitimate basketball players who contribute in a positive way when they are on the floor - I KNEW AHS was deep but I had seen all of that talent working TOGETHER as it did last night ... Griffin Lutz is THE outstanding PG Below the Lancaster-Dixon Line ... he controlled the tempo of the game in regulation with what he did do and what he could do with and without the ball ... Lutz penetrated the lane for 27 points on the night while dishing to teammates Justin Hines (20pts) and Logan Maxfield (12pts) in all Athens put up 58 points IN THE PAINT, AT THE RIM ... as Fairland was having a difficult finding the mark from inside or outside Lutz was able to push the ball offensively vs FHS ... for 2 1/2 quarters Athens owned the game ... at 5:24 in the 3rd Athens had a 10pt cushion leading 36-26 ... even to the end of the 3rd Athens sat on a 45-38 lead going into the final period of regulation ... BUT the tide was turning as Coach Speed & staff adjusted to not having Van Horn in the paint to stop penetration, the adjustment was to 1) force Griffin Lutz to give up the ball early before he could get turned North South 2) with the ball out of Griffin Lutz's hands they put on ball pressure on everyone else - forced them to make decisions with the ball that they were used to doing - it worked - the FHS defensive pressure turned the Bulldogs over 9 times in the 3rd period and 6 more times in the 4th/OT ... at the 5:34 mark of the 4th period Fairland finally had clawed it's way back to take the lead on an Isaiah Howell triple 51-50 ... game on ... game on meant that Fairland would continue to benefit from going to the FT line the Dragons went 26/32 from the FT line after intermission ... Athens was called for 25 fouls in the game Fairland 19 - the difference being Athens needing to foul down the stretch in OT - so imo the fouls were even on the game ... final 2 possessions of regulation encapsulated this game for Athens in a 54-54 tie game ... AHS with the ball ... the Bulldogs ran clock to get what they thought would be the last shot ... who's hands do you want the ball in ? I know right - Griffin Lutz had not been stopped for 31 minutes, put the ball in his hands and roll the dice ... G Lutz came through as the PG went untouched to the rim Athens 66 Fairland 64 ... time out FHS :06 on the clock ... if Lutz is THE man for Athens Isaiah Howell is his counterpart for Fairland ... the ball came in to Ty Staten ... TS looked for Howell, drove to outside the left block, double teamed, Staten as time expired split the defenders and dropped the 8 footer cleanly - the fg was Ty Staten's ONLY fg for the entire game ... 66-66 time to go OT ... outstanding stuff right there imo ... OT had Fairland getting the lead on Keedrick Cunningham's triple, followed by floater for 2 more ... Griffin Lutz countered with 9 points in the OT ... it was not enough as FHS went to the line for 10 FTs knocking down 8 ... Fairland 81 Athens 77 OT a final ...

Love the concept of this showcase to help in providing scholarships for Chesapeake players. Sat to your left pfloyd during the Minford vs Chesapeake game, and was unable to navigate the crowd to get over and say hello. Did get to talk to trojandave before I reluctantly had to leave before the final game. Told trojandave to say hello to you for me. My son did stay for half of the last game and left very impressed by both schools, especially Griffin Lutz. Hope to get to see you later this season, and may have to treat you to some twizzlers.

Didn't get to say hello to you to 93 bulldog. You were a little busy getting ready for that great game. May need a case of twizzlers to Crack the elite 8 with all the great teams on top of the board. Hopefully the guard play of Gullett and inside play of Shepherd and Thoroughman can help in pulling a few surprises in the next couple of weeks.
