Thanks Mustafa for posting the link.
and Taps, BR defeated Noblesville #2, Eastern Hancock, Valporaiso #2, Penn #2, North Miami, Christian Academy, & Bremen. Their only loss in pool play came in their game against Triton. If memory serves me correctly it ended up being a 3 point game in a fairly low scoring contest (34-31).
BR did not play Northeast Dubois, Orleans, Crawford County, Portage #2, and Hagerstown in pool play.
I do not remember who all they played in their tourney games on Sunday other than they opened with Noblesville, which was a very close game and they did beat Orleans in the tourney as well. They did not get a chance to play Triton again as they were defeated by Dubois. Dubois then fell to Hagerstown, whom BR beat in the final game.
Triton has a tall (6'5"??), slender, blonde haired kid that is very good! Orleans appears to have a host of 3 point shooters, even tho Jones was still out with injury, and I didn't see Andrew Johnson the whole weekend. Perhaps he had other comittments as I didn't think he was a senior last season??
Personally I thought BR looked very well considering they are looking to replace 4 starters. Obviously, I know its summer but BR did get a chance to play lots of different combinations in game situations and were able to play against a variety of styles of basketball. BR appeared to be much stronger physically, in both varsity & JV, then they were at this time last season. Its summer!!, so while I know a lot of what happens now means nothing there were a number of things taken from the summer tourneys that show a lot of promise for the Vikings.
Excellent report - thanks. Did Logan James play? You are right about summer ball not always telling much about how the following season will turn out - but it's usually a pretty good predictor unless there are injuries or other changes. Some kids are able to use the expanded experience to really understand what they need to do to improve - the Zellers come to mind immediately. BR is definitely reloading, but I think they have a chance to be very good. I think Bullock can be very good and I also think Bledsoe can up his game. If those things happen and everyone else makes the sort of progression you would expect given their talents, I see no reason the Vikings can't be a top team in 1A again.
Was the good player for Triton Clay Yeo, or someone else? Yeo is one of the best seniors in the state for next year.
