SVSM and VASJ have consistently competed at the highest levels in their respective divisions for a good chunk of the past few decades. In many of those years, each could have beaten just about any D1...

But in basketball it's not really about "enough." It's about having 8-10 solid players, with a few of them being truly outstanding. Almost any open-enrollment school in a large metropolitan area,...

Benedictine held its own in its first game of the season, but Garfield Heights is going to be scary-good this year. And the Bulldogs might be even better next year when Sonny's boy joins the squad.

I don't feel sorry for them. :shrug: The point is that VASJ is equally as capable of finding 8-10 talented basketball players as Euclid, and enrollment size is an irrelevant factor. Last year, Euclid...

My statement was a two-parter. Of course it's a free-for-all in NEO high school hoops these days which is why divisions based on enrollment no longer make sense.

Primarily because Euclid can't draw from all over Northeast Ohio with the added benefit of playing down come tournament time. So yes, excellent analysis.

I love the Buckeyes, but they don't deserve a playoff spot this season based on their resumé and regardless of what happens next week. I won't be upset if they don't get the nod.
