For a season that had a ton of parity, the tournament went pretty much completely chalk.
The final four ended up being #1 OLOM versus #4 SGS and #2 Aloysius versus #3 St. Jude. None of the first round games were too competitive. St. Jude overcame a halftime deficit to defeat St. Theresa, and St....

The Big 10 (Unofficial CSAL Championship) Tournament Bracket has been set, and this weekend should be a great weekend of basketball kicking off March Madness. Sure, we will get to the College tourney soon, but the Middle Schoolers will be center stage this weekend.
Bracket looks like this: (Pres...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Entering the lane on a free throw - BearTiger on 1/29/15 at 9:29 am|
It is much easier for the offense to get a rebound on a free throw when the players have to wait for the ball to touch the rim or backboard.
When they can enter the lane upon the release, it allows the defense players to establish a block out and get good position.
When they have to wait for...

You setup your offense or a play and look for the best shot possible. You don't want to force a shot right away just to get a shot up, but I am not a fan of waiting until the last shot.
If you wait for the last shot, you are only giving yourself one chance to tie or win. If you shoot with say 20...

This also ignores the fact that in non-conference regular season games Tuberville lost to:
Georgia Tech 2005
South Florida 2007
West Virginia 2008
In comparison, Miles hasn't lost a non-conference regular season game at LSU including wins over Oregon, Wisconsin, West V...

Good question. I was very close to putting them at 10. They have missed the tournament 2 years in a row and were a big time bubble team 2 years ago. That of course has nothing to do with this new crop of 8th graders.
There team is a little undersized from what I ha...

It's that time of year folks. Can we get a sticky? Jamborees start next week, so let's get to it.
Much like the NCAA Tournament has increased from 64 to 68 teams, the Elite 8 has increased to the Big 10 Tournament. This will allow for some coaches to get their post season bonuses along with some ...

I think we are pretty much saying the same thing here.
Sometimes we were trying to block against a stacked box, and sometimes we weren't. Either way those personnel groupings and play calls weren't working, just like against Wisconsin. The problem is we got behind too far this game before we made...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Miles lost game. - BearTiger on 9/22/14 at 8:13 am|
If you think Jennings was the #1 reason for the loss, then you don't know football.
Reasons for the loss in order IMO:
1. Defensive tackle - we are just too young and weak here
2. Offensive personnel groupings - too much I formation with 1-2 te's
3. Offensive line inability to run block again...

Quinn was targeted 4 times in the passing game actually.
He had the 2 catches for 12 yards. He also had the drop early in the game on the quick out route, and he was thrown to on a 3rd and long scramble coming back to the ball near the LSU sideline. It would have been a great catch, but he just...
