Nah, I'd put Walnut up there in Tier 2 and drop Kings down to 3. From what I heard, Walnut just came out flat last night and Loveland can absolutely fill it up and bury you if you don't play defense. I think Walnut will be fine. No way Kings finishes with a better conference record than Walnut.Friday, December 14, 2018
Milford 57, West Clermont 46
Loveland 71, Walnut Hills 54
Turpin 52, Anderson 36
Kings 49, Withrow 47
Well, West Clermont has crapped the bed twice in a row since I declared them legit lol. Nothing else I can say there.
After another week of conference play I think the picture is becoming more clear. Loveland and Turpin are the class of the league. I am absolutely shocked how far Withrow and Walnut have fallen. I'd say West Clermont is probably dangerous enough to beat anyone on any given night, but also inconsistent enough to lose on any given night.
At this point I'd say:
Tier 1: Loveland and Turpin
Tier 2: Kings, Milford, Withrow, WC
Tier 3: Walnut
Tier 4: Anderson
I'm admittedly biased. WC may be closer to Tier 3 Walnut than the other Tier 2 teams. I don't believe that just yet, but things may certainly play out that way.
My picks...Another full slate of league games tonight.
Milford at Anderson
Withrow at West Clermont
Kings at Walnut Hills
Loveland at Turpin
I see Milford as being the only visitor to win but I've been wrong a lot this year.
Turpin's really good. They've got two fantastic perimeter scorers, some size, a couple of good defenders and rebounders. They'll be hard to beat in the ECC -- we'll see how they do as they play their nonconf games.Walnut beat Kings by 30
Turpin beat Loveland 54-50
Looks like the Spartans are going to be tough to beat this year.
I'm not sure what's going on with Withrow. They have good players but just can't seem to put the ball in the basket. I bet they missed 10 shots within 10 feet in the first half last night.
Scheduling kind of sucks for Turpin. All this momentum and they don't play for 10 days.Turpin's really good. They've got two fantastic perimeter scorers, some size, a couple of good defenders and rebounders. They'll be hard to beat in the ECC -- we'll see how they do as they play their nonconf games.
