  1. Watered-down Playoffs

    Is this a boys score for 1st/2nd in 15-4A?
  2. CH started the game on an 11-0 run in the first couple minutes. Seemed like they got every hustle play. Woodville just wasn't able to weather the storm early and never could recover. Pretty sure they were down 30-12 @ half. CH made several 3's and Woodville really didn't have an answer for their guard play
  3. Final Central 46 Central heights 41
  4. End 3rd Central 33 Central heights 32
  5. Center 46 central heights 44 final

  7. Central heights beat bowie 38-33. Will play the winner of Center/Liberty Christian
  8. Center 76 Silsbee 74/FINAL

    Silsbee had little to no answer for center's jaterious Evans and kaleb parks. Center did a fairly good job of beating silsbee's pressure without making too many turnovers. Center played 8 players, with the starters playing 90-95% probably. Both teams had a couple key players in foul trouble down the stretch. Neither team shot FTs very well, although center probably made more down the stretch, including the 2 that would eventually win it. I think Silsbee rebounded a little better, especially on the offensive boards, which puzzled me, since center has 2 kids down low at 6'6" and 6'7". I don't know the count for sure, but I think center had around 6 or 7 dunks to silsbee's 1...I think. Obviously this was my first time to see silsbee this year, but the majority of the offense they ran was just to spread the floor and let McCain, Bush, or Adams dribble/drive to the rack and either take a contested layup against the center bigs, or kick it to the 3 pt line. But the most of the time, Center was able to contest even the 3 pt shots   Silsbee is a dang good team. I'm sure they missed some shots that they normally make, as did center. Both teams made some very difficult shots too, though. As most of you guys have said, Silsbee will be just fine moving forward. 
  9. Center 76 Silsbee 74/FINAL

    Would anyone happen to have stats from last night?
  10. Center 76 Silsbee 74/FINAL

    What. A. Game! Atmosphere was electric. Game was exciting til the final whistle. I saw someone from Silsbee ask if they had a full squad tonight. I don't know, but one of center's starters didn't play tonight due to him tearing his ACL today.    Safe travels to all heading back to Silsbee.
  11. They played the same style of defense...
  12. This is the last I'm saying about argyle/center because obviously this is an argyle/silsbee thread.  As for refs...Yea I think they could've been better. Do I think they beat center? Not exactly. Center was 10-17 from FT's for the game and missed 9 or so shots right around the bucket (4ft or less) if I counted correctly (I've watched the film twice now). If half of these go in and a few more FT's we win by double digits. Cookie just didn't crumble our way Friday evening. Just how it goes sometimes. With that said, I do have some interesting numbers that I wrote down. Through 3 qtrs, center had a total of 8 fouls called against them, while argyle had 13. I think there were a couple missed calls both ways through 3 qtrs. The score was 36-34 argyle's favor heading to 4th. In the 4th qtr, argyle committed 3 fouls. 2 of which were intentional "take" fouls with under 1 min to go. Center, on the other hand, had 8 fouls called against them in the 4th. Only 1 was intentional, late in 4th. Argyle shot 6-12 from FT's in the 4th, Center was 0-0. Argyle did not have a made FG over the last 4:30 or so of the game. All points from then on were FT's.  It was unfortunate for Center, but it is what it is. Life goes on. I'll be pulling for the Tigers to get it done against Argyle Friday afternoon.
  13. You're exactly right. Argyle was the best when it mattered. And you're right that I'm not blaming refs. Center had their chances. It was just one of those days for the Riders where we couldn't buy a bucket around the rim. We probably missed at least 10-15 shots less than 5ft away. I think what makes it tough for us Rider fans to swallow from the loss was the fact that 2 former refs of 20+ years from that chapter, who watched all 3 games in commerce, thought that argyle got the "benefit of the doubt" on numerous occasions. I know, as a homer, that any fan can be biased towards what WE see and what WE don't see. So for me personally, it kind of validated what I thought I was seeing. Another observation by those 2 retired, paris, and Lincoln's rosters were predominately black kids. Argyle was predominantly white (1 black kid who never played). I'll let you guess what race the refs were. And before anyone says that I'm being racist, or am a racist, just know that I'm a white guy, haha. Call it what you want...good coaching, bad refs, or whatever....they're in San Antonio and my Riders are not. Good luck to silsbee this weekend!
  14. Its because you're trying to be confused. ...which makes you look ignorant. They're not going to be careless and play a sloppy game. I never said they got away with mistakes. Its not a mistake if you're not called for it, right? As rider78 stated, their guards push off alot...#5 more so than #3. But they do it in a way that is very subtle. Its not that eye popping, without a doubt, full extension push off that leaves the defender off balance and awkward looking. One thing they were called for multiple times, though, was a moving screen. I bet they had 5 or 6 of those calls go against them...which, I would say probably isn't too terribly bad given the number of screens they set. I hope silsbee wins. Some folks asked for opinions on argyle, so that's what I offered. I would venture to say they will likely be the least athletic team in San Antonio this weekend. But they don't win with athleticism. They win with discipline.  Good luck
