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 have. That's all I'm wanting. And they won't be challenged with this schedule this year. Now, 4 years ago we wouldn't touch Warren. This team can and should beat Warren this season. Glad to see them back on! That's my point. See them play serious schedule that prepares them better for tournament time. Good luck Devils!
I guess we will just agree to disagree. My only problem with the schedule is 2 Point pleasant and 2 river valley. I would be fine if you eliminated a river valley and put meigs on. Eliminated a Point and put Jackson on.

The other 4 non conference. Athens, Logan, warren and Afrocentric. I don’t think anyone should complain about.

I don’t they know wevshould compare this team to last years fairland team that fairland team went to the final 4 in state before with everyone back.

What has this Gallia team done. They won one game in the sectional to win the sectional and lost first game at convo. I thought no they have a shot to get to Columbus but on the court as of yet this team hasn’t proved that it is a great team yet the way fairland had.

I could be wrong but the best win this team has is maybe Zane trace last year? Maybe I am forgetting a better one. But that is best I remember

And as far as OVC goes. The top of OVC may not be a last competitive as last year but think the bottom of OVC better then it has been in a while.

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 those teams. It's true what you say about this team doesn't have quality wins but adding more quality opponents is how you get those. And I get what you say about Fairland but they didn't play the schedule they did until they knew the caliber of players they would have the past 4 years. That's where we may have dropped the ball so to speak. Gallia staff knew this talent was coming and should have prepared for such. It's almost like being the biggest and oldest kid in the neighborhood and beating all the little kids in 1on1. Yes you win a lot but are you challenged enough to make you better? I still think the "goal" of this team should be Columbus. Not that we are good enough nor that we have proved ourselves worthy. But still should be the goal. Teams in years past could be satisfied with making it to the Convo but this group of players need to have loftier goals. Just my two cents worth and that's about all it is lol. I appreciate your opinions and how they challenge my own. I think we can both also say Go Blue together!

Are the Blue Devils considered “underdogs” against Affricentric?
What time is the tip?

I would assume so, not that last year matters but Affricentric were state runner-ups in D3. Tip is at 6:45 it will be packed!

Fairland went to State 2 years ago and they played a real tough schedule last year and got beat 1st game in regionals last year and should have gotten beat in District final by Fairfield Union who only beat GAHS by 3 points in District Fairfield Union was up by as many as 17 points and choked at the end of game. Basketball is along season playing tough teams can help you but if you play too many tough games it can hurt you by wearing your team down and not having your legs under you, but I do agree GAHS needed to replace RV and Point at the end of their schedule and add a couple of good teams that would help them get ready for post season.y

I don’t think the Blue Devils should get “the cart before the horse”. One game at a time.

Seems wrong not to be playing a game or two against Jackson.
No sense in wasting a game or two for the blue!!!!!!!!

The Blue Devils played them in the summer in Columbus and the Blue Devils beat them by quiet a few points.

Sounds like GA had a good showing against a strong Columbus team ! And almost pulled a win out!

I heard the Devils were down 19 at the half, having trouble with the press. Impressive second half I would say.
