I agree that we're never going to have the talent Moeller has, but I completely disagree that these kids aren't capable of being what I describe. They already are.

Everyone of the kids that play at Elder has played as much basketball as kids at other places (with the exception of maybe Moeller, who are pulling in prep all-stars).

When they get to Elder, they are put into a system and the system rules the day (and individual creativity, athleticism, and shot making ability are taken away). I think it's limiting, but that's my opinion.

However, yr after yr teams built of averaged sized Guards isn't going to cut it.

And every good team has a Defensive specialist. Look at Duke. They've got Matt Jones who plays primarily for his Defense. He can still score, but he's looking to get the ball to Kennard or Allen first.
Once again...read. It's fine they have defensive specialists, but those defensive specialists that only play defense further limit a putrid offensive team.

I don't see a whole lot of offensive options coming up the ranks with the exception of one kid that plays on the freshman team. And I don't see the offensive philosophy changing.

My guess if these kids played pick-up ball, a whole bunch of them could score. What happens to them when they get into the Elder system?

I am probably one of the few on here who agree with you when you say that Elder takes pride in losing with kids with toughness. It's kind of annoying actually. I think it sells our kids short big time.

You just said in an earlier post you didn't have a problem with their Offense. Quit flip flopping.

The people who feel that way are idiots who have likely never accomplished much, so they try to spin failure into a positive any way they can.

There's truth to a lot of what's said about other programs, but fugg it. Elder never uses to be about excuses until they started losing. We need to stop acting like Elder athletics are special, they're not anymore. And until more people wake up and see the bs, this will keep happening.

The actual x's and o's they run are no different than what anyone else does. The problem is the 3-4 role players out there at once. Less focus on defense, more focus on guys that can put the ball in the hole.

You have a better chance of seeing the floor in an Elder uniform if you can play great d as opposed to a kid that can score, but has some deficiencies on defense. It's always been that way. And I think that hurts them, and I think there are plenty of other kids in the program who could contribute to its success if it wasn't this way.

The only exception to this was the '93 state champ team...they just went out and balled.

I think the fierce loyalty to Schoenfeld has a lot to do with this, but they would never say it. His coaches love him, but I'm pretty sure none of them would emulate his style (his basketball style, not him as a person - Coach Schoenfeld is a great human being) if they were in charge. Maybe they would...I don't know.

I believe Austing ran the same Offense at FF. Coaching wasn't an issue yesterday or this season. Last night, WH seemed to come up with the most critical 50/50 balls, I don't have a box score, but WH had to have been at least 80% from the line, Elder was probably closer to 60. When you run such a limited Offense, you can't afford to miss points from the line.

I have no doubt the coach's knowledge of x's and o's far exceeds anyone's here. But you will never convince me that out of a school of nearly 1,000 boys who play at a school with a history of sports success, that you can't find more than 2 kids per team that can consistently put the ball in the hoop.

They are out there, whether they are on the bench or have given up on trying out. A lot were lost over the years with that feeling of helplessness that some other posters have described as they felt they would never get a solid look. And most of them were right.

There's no reason Elder basketball should be this mediocre. You're going to tell me Walnut Hills and Cooper and Oak Hills and LaSalle have different types of kids than us? This is where I think politics plays a role in on-field success.

I agree they shouldn't be consistently mediocre. And I always laugh at the morons who want to play the "underdog" card when Elder has over 900 boys. They need kids who are primarily bball players. The Frosh team that went unbeaten lost a few key players who decided to focus on football.

Mosely is the only player I can think of who was a stud football player that decided to focus on bball

Shot clock would work wonders for high school hoops, especially in the GCL...one can hope.

Seems like the past few years are where it's gotten out of hand.
