Good win over Spire last night at the Nest. This was not the same Spire that came to Lakewood a few years ago with Lamelo Ball and Rocket Watts. They listed about 15 kids on the printed roster, but only brought 9 and dressed 8. Not sure where the rest of the team was... maybe they thought they didn't need em all? From my memory, they brought the following kids (Hill didn't Dress) + 6'9 Abdou Yadd who started but wasn't on the print out. None of these guys appear to be major DI recuits as of now (Big 10, ACC, etc), but most did appear to be DI type kids. Eagles got out fast and blasted them in Q1, leading 28-9 after 1. Q2 was much more competitive, with the Eagles going into half up 22 I believe. Spire came out in a zone that gave the Eagles trouble in the second half, and allowed Spire to do less running around on D. At one point late in 3rd, Spire cut it to 9, but that was as close as they got. Ukize Nshungu left in the first half with a very painful looking arm/shoulder injury. Hopefully nothing serious. He's been a key reserve for the Eagles.

Impressive performance by the Eagles. Spire has serious talent and a real vertical game. Dunked like crazy, yet Eds kept their composure. It seemed like someone always made a big shot to stop a run when needed, be it Grant, Henry or Perusek. Several great passes created scores. Garfield Hts. should be an interesting matchup.

St. Edward 56 Garfield Heights 48 in overtime at the Chet Mason Invitational. Nice comeback win by the Eagles against a tough Bulldog team. The Eagles were behind by seven points with three minutes left in the game. They trailed by three with eight seconds remaining before a Brevyn Coleman 3-pointer sent the game into overtime. In OT, Danny Lavelle hit five of six free throws, while Garfield Heights was held scoreless.

Garfield Hts coach should have been kicked out after rushing the court near the end of the game. Security had to be called onto the court. Referees were terrible but no excuse for the coach’s behavior. This is the example we want for our children? Inexcusable!! Appreciate Coach Flannery when you see a fool like the Garfield Hts coach. Flannery made a fool of him in OT. With very few three pt. shots taken by GH during the game, they get first possession in OT and work the ball for about two minutes of the 4 minute OT, only to throw up an undisciplined off balance three. Bad coaching at a critical time. GH gave Ed’s their toughest game only to be letdown By their coach. Love Coach Flannery.

80-38. Shame how low Benedictine has fallen in basketball. The Eagles used to have some epic battles with the Bengals.

Solid win at St. V's, 65-59. Wendell Henry had an off night, but Max McClellan picked him up, hitting a couple big 3's. Cam Grant led with 18. Overall depth of the team on display tonight. Each good opponent, each environment, they craft a way to win. 15-0.

Twenty-five points from non-starters tonight. McClellan scored eight in the third quarter and Bussey tallied nine in the fourth. Those two players accounted for seventeen of the Eagles twenty-eight second half points.

Brevyn Coleman scored 20 points in the season opener against Medina. I think that’s the only game that an Eagle has reached twenty this season. Their scoring has been well distributed in most contests, often with three or four players in double figures.

Eagles now the clear favorite in D1. It's them and the "field." When is the last time a school won state titles in football, basketball & wrestling in the same schoolyear? I think probably never, but its a real possibility.

This team has proven they are the real deal, and perhaps rightly D1 favorites. That being said, in a single elimination tournament vs the field, that might be 12 or 13% odds of winning a title. Will be a fun tournament for sure

Defense and depth travels. Not everyone had a good night. Flan trusts his bench. Scarpitti and Hargitt also did their jobs under pressure.After Brecksville, another big road test, they will have played just about the entire Cleveland.com's Top 10. Getting battle-tested.

This group has been fun to watch this year. Team ball at its finest. That being said, I’m sure Flan would tell you he’d like to see this team suffer some sort of defeat before heading into the tournament.

I enjoyed watching the game on Boxcast. The two Ed's Homer analysts with their knee-jerk reactive comments had me rolling. St Ed's is a well coached team. They're scrappy and fly to ball. Some very good long ball shooters. St Ed's, Centerville, and Pick. Central in the finals will make for some good hs basketball, can't wait.

Only one homer. Mendoza does a good job.

Eagles' team play is impressive.
Another year of great coaching and team development by Flannery. He has been one of the very best in Ohio and is showing it again this season.
He's built a strong supporting cast around Cameron Grant (I believe - a Stanford commit)
Besides their team play, characteristics that I've noticed in games that I've watched of this team are outstanding 3 point shooting (by everyone, guards and 'bigs') and the Eagles get off to fast starts, which causes the opposing teams to press because of being in catch-up mode. The Eagles can withstand 'runs' and build back their leads

Big game this Friday across from Wendy's. Cats still have top 5 in state talent, and Sullivan is the toughest environment the Eagles will play in this year.
