No idea if it's true or not, but I thought these Wiki entries were funny:

Malvern - "Dislikes expansion"

Newcomerstown - "Had to play up in the conference because Sandy Valley wanted to play small schools in football."

Sandy Valley - "Refused to play teams they should have so Newcomerstown stepped up."

Somebody definitely had an axe to grind when he or she submitted those details.

Those are pretty funny; but I agree that SV should be ashamed of itself; for a school that size to be in the "small" school division. And I don't have a horse in this race, just making an obvious observation.

Schools in North Division had no problem with division setup,Newc stepping up,not really got their wish,Of course travel expenses,and loss of natural rival games didnt matter at all.League meetings had more agendas and bartering than an UN council meeting! Some wanted the whole pie and no one else a piece,didnt happen and people were mad.Your obvious observation might not be an intelligent one!! Oh by the way, I have no horse in this race either!

No, my inside sources told me SV demanded they play in the small division or they wouldn't join. Which is pathetic.

Congrats to IV on the state recognition. Nice to see local team on the list, but why isn't Strasburg getting any love from around the state with their 14-1 record? I always thought the IVC was viewed as a strong basketball league.

Rope, do you have anything to say about IVC basketball as the forum suggests or are you still upset that SV didn't do what you wanted them to do from your ivory tower?

You're right. I forgot about Malvern's loss to Strasburg last week.

I would strongly suggest that you ignore the AP poll. It's a total joke - and has been for a long time. Guys who blog about small school basketball probably think very highly of them.

The IVC community and surrounding area has taken note of what Coach Hall has accomplished at Sburg.

Regardless, basketball doesn't rely on computer ratings to determine its best teams. If the Tigers win a district and a regional, credit will be given. If you win a state game or, certainly, a championship, all the recognition you can handle comes your way.

I have been impressed with what Hiland has done recently. They were hovering around .500 a few weeks ago, but righted the ship. Scott Troyer has really stepped up for them lately. If they get Kobe Troyer going, they will be a team no one relishes facing. They have played good defense all year, but the offense has come and gone. If they can find more consistent offense, they will be a district crown contender. They could end up with 16-17 wins or 13-14 depending on how they play down the stretch. Garaway is in a very similar situation.

IV is very impressive. Looking forward to seeing how they finish the regular season and what happens to them in the tournament.

My Hawks. have been playing real good basketball here of late, Kobe Troyer is starting to get his touch back and Scott T. has raised his game to another level,we should be 13-5 after Friday game,at one time in early January we were 6-5,I guess we will see how far we have come in the next two weeks,sat.@ River, next Friday home to I.V. then the following Tuesday home to Garaway.so we will see how far we have come

All you need to do to realize how much of a joke the AP Poll is is look at all the girls polls from this season. The first couple polls not only still had Hiland in Div. 4 (they're D3 this year), but they weren't even in the Top 10! Then they completely disappeared from it entirely for a week before reappearing this week in Div. 3, but still not in the Top 10.

Good points on the state of the state polls. As you both have stated, keep winning and recognition for the area and conference will come.

Does anyone know what this IVC Showcase thing is that is on all the school's schedule coming up in mid Feb? Looks like it is at IV, but what is it?

The schedules I've looked at indicate the Boys Showcase is at Claymont on 2/17. The Girls Showcase is at Hiland on 2/10. The Girls Volleyball showcase was at IV in the fall.

For the showcase, I assume they'll pair up the North and South teams by order of finish, so that 1st place in the north plays 1st place in the south, 2nd place in the north plays 2nd in the south, and so on.

Does anyone else know for sure?

Thanks Mr. Slippery for the info on the showcase. I missed the location being at Claymont. That sounds pretty neat to pair the teams up that way. So, if that's the case, based on today's standings, Strasburg would play IV? I'd like to see that game; think it would be interesting match up.

When will the times of the games come out or are they already set? Again, thanks for the help.
