Can the Hiland Lady Hawks repeat?

Only losing 4 from 2017 state title team. Thoughts?

The Lady Hawks probably will repeat, I only hope Ottoville can make it back to State next year, and play them again, but it is very tough to get to the state form NW Ohio & win.

I thought Hiland moved to Division III this year?

Yes, they have moved up. One of their top players tore her ACL. That is going to hurt. I, have already got a look at them so far this season. They have decent size and a few good shooters. But, their biggest weapon is. I, don’t believe any team is better coached.

They have everyone healthy and are loaded for bear. Their regional is tough with Africentic and Procterville Fairland. Whoever comes out of there will have earned it.

What's the word on Fairland? Is Hiland the favorite in that game?

Favorite in whose eyes? Lol. The AP had Fairland ranked in the top 10 in their last poll, I believe, and Hiland was in the "receiving votes" category - ironically, receiving 1 first place vote. The AP is a joke. Hiland lost to DI powers Fairmont, Stow-Munroe Falls, and Newark in competitive games when they weren't healthy, along with a loss to a nationally ranked Colorado team, and haven't lost since they got healthy.

Among people who really know, I would think Hiland is a 6-10 point favorite, depending how they play. Fairland has a guard, Chapman, who can go for 30 no problem. But Coach S has a slew of elite defenders to throw at her.

Hiland is fully healthy and it will take a heckuva team to beat them. They sometimes do not play up to their potential, but if they do, I think they will handle Fairland fairly easily. Africentric is another story. That regional final will be epic if it happens.

Amen to the AP comment.
Hiland may lack quality wins, but they challenged themselves all year and came up short against high quality larger schools.
They will be favored in this game.

Actually the AP had the Hawks in D4 for half the season, how credible does that make you?
District seedings from amongst your peers have a much more legitimate ranking system at the end of the season at least in your local area and often contradict the AP.

D2 NP beat D1 Canfield at home, lost only to D1 Jackson & Wooster all year and Canfield is mentioned in the final AP poll, Philly not? I don’t really even know why the AP even publishes their poll each week. Coaches and players want two things, win your league, win state.

I caught Hiland's win over Magnificat. The Blue Streaks were a well-coached team with talent, and only turned the ball over 11 times. Hiland beat them by like 40 with just solid defense, rebounding, and execution. Garaway was a solid team they beat 3 times - good defensive team and well-coached, just not enough size and talent. They beat NC Hoover by about 20 (not the best team they have had up there) and John Hay. The rest of their schedule was a bunch of IVC blowouts. When they got beat by Newark by 4 and Regis Jesuit (Colorado) by 6, those were pretty impressive performances in losses.

I overlooked the Mighty Minford Falcons. They are 24-1. I am originally from the Ironton area, and while I like to see schools from that part of the state do well, I generally don't have a high opinion of the quality of girls basketball in that area. It seems the NE, NW, and the urban areas have the better teams historically. OTOH, you can find horrible girls basketball all over the state. Lol.

You see these teams with good records getting thumped in regional games by 40 or 50, and it's a head-scratcher. It's especially true in DIV. Hiland's only test some years came in the district, or even sectional, against the likes of Shadyside or Rosecrans, and then they would crush teams with great records at the regional. You could sometimes see the realization hit the players early on in those games: "We have run into something here that we aren't used to."

If anyone has seen Minford, I'd like to hear what they have and the kind of competition they have been playing.

Foul trouble, out hustle (especially rebounding), and superior coaching. Most recent example - Wadsworth over McKinley.

I would add that they need to shoot better than they did last night, esp 3s. Might need ten of those.

34 to 32 Hiland at half.

43 to 42 Nubians end of 3.

6 min left Hiland up 44 to 43.

4 min left Hiland up 51 to 45.

2 min left Hiland up 53 to 47.

1 min left Hiland up 56 to 54. Evidently you are allowed to tackle ballhandlers without fouling. Rule change? Lol.

Tied at 56 with 18 sec left. Hiland's ball.

OT

Hiland down 58 to 57 with 1 min left..

Kennedy ties game at 60 on a 3. Thornton fouled with 1 SEC. Makes 1 of 2. Hiland has 1.4 seconds to do something miraculous.

Africentic wins 61 to 60.

Nope. They lost today to a fantastic squad from Columbus Africentric. Great game!

Hiland had a great opportunity up 7 with under 2 minutes to go, but they turned the ball over a couple times in the last minute and gave up some killer offensive boards. If I remember correctly, when they played a season ago in the Classic, Hiland also let a 6 or 7 point lead slip away with a couple minutes to go, but unlike this year they did pull it out in OT. Either way, another great season for Hiland! A shame that somebody had to lose as this really should have been a matchup we saw in Columbus, but that’s the way the bracket goes sometimes.

Just curious. Did Hiland get moved to D3 because of competitive rebalancing?

I believe they already had D3 enrollment #'s prior to the addition of the 9 CB pts.

As someone who generally wants to add something, that says all that needs said.
