Cardinal Stritch fired their AD who also served as their football coach and baseball coach. Guy did an excellent job turning that program in a competitive direction. His baseball teams always overachieved and to the best of my knowledge he was well liked. Head scratcher.

very surprising buff, I had the pleasure of coaching against Craig in baseball and will tell you he was the most respected coach we competed against, at least from our dugout the coach from OH was a wacko. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him.

On a side note and i apologize with this being a basketball forum, but the job opened up a few months back. Quickly after I applied for it, I got an email saying there was some things ironed out and Craig would be back. Unfortunate all the way around, Gibsonburg and Ottawa Hills are a step behind Stritch this year IMO

Big game tonight at OH. Stritch had and opportunity to knock off TC but came up short in the end. They are able to shut down a big man as they held Ochoa to six points. From what I can tell OH has some size and probably more depth than TC. Should be a good game and we will have a real good idea who is in the drivers seat for the championship by the end of the night tonight.

Dick Cromwell has been brought in as the interim AD at Stritch. Maybe they can talk him into taking over the football program as well...

Haas Bakery, Black Forest Cafe, two great parks, and Stritch basketball. Stritch dialed up OH tonight pretty good at all 3 levels. Great response to the Tuesday loss, for such a relatively young team. Buckle up, they got something brewing on Pickle Rd. that we have not seen since the likes of since Gadjostick, Herman, and Patterson.

Stritch took down OH tonight 54-43. OH struggled scoring and was down 20 most of the second half. Stritch shot the ball much better than OH. Stritch had 4-5 guys hit threes and Burton hit a few from NBA range. Sieben scored about 15 but got in to foul trouble in the second half.

Thought defense was key. Stritch looks to have more size and athleticism across the board. Not quit a TRAC team but heading in that direction. If they can get more efficient on offense they could be real good. Still have a lot of work to do.

This game was called a lot closer than the Toledo Christian game. Thought it was fair but a lot closer. TC game had a ton of holding, grabbing and riding a guys hip all the way to the rim. Two guys who don't get a lot of credit came up big tonight playing the 3.....along with a huge game from the point. He plays a very efficient game.

E-Hoops Ohio TAAC Preview

This is ehoops preview for the TAAC, probably the best assessment of the league.


TAAC

Ottawa Hills

Key Players: Hunter Sieben, Pete Roman

Outlook: After making a deep tournament run last season OH looks to continue to make their mark in small school basketball in NW Ohio. Sieben is one of the better talents in the area and will land at a college program when all is said and done. The ‘refuse to lose’ guard will be complemented by senior post presence Pete Roman who has experience on the AAU circuit and will bring intensity and leadership. Talk of a conference championship in this league starts with these guys.

Toledo Christian

Key Players: Joe Ochoa, Delano Smith, Landon McGill

Outlook: The Eagles will be impacted by the graduation of a number of key contributors but have the talent to replace that void and more. Ochoa might just be the best true big man in Toledo and should challenge for conference POY. Smith and McGill are two guards who can shoot the ball, bring energy, and be leaders on the defensive side of things. Smith in particular will be a coach on the court for Dave McWhinnie and Co. as they look to challenge for a conference title.

Cardinal-Stritch

Key Players: Jordan Burton, Joey Holifield, Little Anderson

Outlook: Both of these guards are young but supremely talented. Burton is a sophomore who can just flat out play and do it all, should ‘wow’ people in league play all season long. Holifield is a kid who has been around the Toledo basketball scene his whole life and it is now his turn as a freshman to write his own story. Nearly a lock to be a D1 player someday. Anderson brings length and outside scoring to the table.

Maumee Valley Country Day

Key Players: Zeb Jackson, Kaleb Kynard, Jaiden Woodley

Outlook: The past struggles for this program should come to an end this season as arguably the most gifted kid to hit the court in Toledo since Marc Loving and Nigel Hayes takes the floor for the first time; Zeb Jackson is just that special. He along with veteran Kaleb Kynard should hold down the perimeter for this team while Woodley is an ever improving big man capable of registering a double-double on any given night. Really interested to see what this team can do.

Best of the Rest

Gibsonburg

Outlook: While they may not have any big names like the aforementioned programs in their league, Gibsonburg seems to get it done on the court year after year and don’t expect this season to be any different. Could find themselves toward the top of the conference standings near the end of the season.

Danbury, Emmanuel Christian, Northwood

Outlook: Have the ability to contest the teams at the top but will ultimately struggle to keep up with the talents of the league. Will be tough to stay out of the cellar of league standings.

OH down 20 at home in the 2nd half? Wow. Don't think that has happened too often, if at all, in the last 15 years. They will have a much better performance the next time around.

Toledo Area Athletic Conference
Maumee Valley Country Day 5 - 0 3 - 0
Toledo Christian 2 - 0 1 - 0
Danbury 3 - 2 1 - 1
Cardinal Stritch 2 - 1 1 - 1
Gibsonburg 2 - 1 1 - 1
Emmanuel Christian 1 - 2 1 - 1
Ottawa Hills 2 - 2 1 - 2
Northwood 0 - 4 0 - 3


MVCD 74 Northwood 43

From what I saw I like Northwood's coach. Seems to have the right level of expectation for the talent level of the team. Kids also look like they play hard for him.

MVCD young guards are tough. No way I let Jackson ever bring the ball up without trapping him about 30 feet from the basket. When he does get in the lane I don't double off of Woodley. Help needs to come from someone else. Make the other guys beat you. Thank you Mr. Obvious.

Looking forward to the Toledo Christian/MVCD match-up. TC can really defend away from the basket and play great team D.

Gibsonburg 38 Ottawa Hills 32

Ottawa Hills only had 3 guys score. They need to find another option.

For Ottawa Hills, Coil should be back from a shoulder injury soon. Somebody said he was 6'6", he is more like 6'2" and is more of a PF or C. He plays physical and has a good motor, but not really a back to the basket guy. He will help them with their depth.

Silk is another young kid with a little size 6'2" who could help them. He can shoot the ball pretty well. He will need to get more involved to take some pressure off the upperclassmen.

and Clay Basketball - 51-36 win over Waite.

Is Boone playing this year? I would think he would be a tough guard for an undersized Clay team.

No Boone. They did get a transfer from Scott. Between him and Sanders there is no one on Clay's team that should be able to match up. But they did. Nice first win for Coach Oberdick.

They need to start up the River East Classic again now that none of the teams are in the same league. Play it every year at Waite.

Waite, Clay, Stritch and Rossford.

Would have some very competitive games most years.

Going back to the 2004-05 season Clay vs;

Waite 9-8 (During the TCL days they played 2 and even 3 times a year)
Rossford 6-6
Stritch 3-2

They also got one of Clay's starters from last year who transferred back to his home district, in Elmazoub.

Clay has had a couple open enrollment students leave after getting a lot of time as younger players. There was a kid a few years ago who transferred back to Springfield.

Stritch beat Evergreen by 1 in OT. Evergreen is a tough team to guard. Bunch of kids who can shoot, handle the ball and spread the floor with constant motion.

Taac

12/16/16

1. MVCDS 5-0 3-0
2. Toledo Christian 3-0 2-0
3. Gibsonburg 3-1 2-1
4. Cardinal Stritch 3-1 1-1
5. Ottawa Hills 2-2 1-2
6. Danbury 3-3 1-2
7. Emmanuel Christian 1-2 1-2
8. Northwood 0-5 0-4


Early on the TAAC is top heavy, with 5 teams having to battle it out for top three spots. Early indications based on reports,performance and competition. Cardinal Stritch may be the early favorite despite close loss to TC. TC plays MV and Gibsonburg next week so the top three could switch up quite a bit.

Ottawa seems lacking fire power and the jury is still out on MVCDS, they face a tough top notch Canton Central Catholic this weekend a win there would go far. Start of the new year will bring a lot of key match-ups so we will see. TC plays good defense and sound offense, Gibsonburg is not very skilled but guards are solid and they are aggressive. Cardinal Stritch has a lot of young skilled players with shooting, OH is lacking depth and punch from bench and guards not named Sieben. MV is an enigma so far guards are tough defensively and big is legit double double guy but not faced legit competition yet.

TC and MVCD get to keep the target on their back. Stritch is just working hard to get better and compete each night.

Their normally strong defense didn't show up last night, but their offense looks to be getting more diverse. Contributions from several guys. Appreciate their PG more and more every game. He has been deferring to get more guys involved early in the season, but still scores a quiet 15-20 by shooting the ball at a high percentage.

The Stritch game was one of the most entertaining games I've seen in a while. Shooters making shots and players making plays on both sides. Good to see 140+ points on the board. Those 42-35 games we usually see in the TAAC get old.

TC vs MVCD. Will be down to 1 undefeated team in TAAC league play.

It will be interesting to see how Jackson responds to TC's tight man pressure. They pick you up high and won't let him bomb 28 foot 3's.

Big man matchup will be interesting too. Ochoa is due for a couple big games in a row.

MV vs. TC

MVCD lost to a tough Canton Central Catholic team by six which played the exact same style as TC. It will be interesting to see how MVCD responds to the pressure.

Which ever big stays out of foul trouble will be the key to the game. Ochoa and Woodley faced off in Columbus in the Hidden Gems Showcase. Pretty even, Ochoa more athletic but Woodley definitely more skilled.

Toledo Christian with a big win over MVCD. Have at least a one game lead on everyone. Looks like they won it from the foul line.

Stritch held Emmanuel Christian to 21 points. Burton could have scored 40+, had 13 in the 1st 4 minutes of the game, but then got everyone else involved. Finished with 15, don't think he missed a shot.

On a side note Stritch had a 6'5" soph from St. Francis transfer in. Will provide even more depth on the interior next year. Pretty physical athletic kid.

MVCDS vs. TC was great environment, small gym packed to the gills standing room only. It was loud it was intense(side note shame this game for 1st place was not on BCSN or covered by any media outlets at all)

Observations

TC is good 3/4 and 1/2 trap presented problems at first, they did a good job of getting the ball out of Jackson's hands which is difficult to do. TC took advantage of turnovers and officiating crew who were lopsided to say the least. Pt. guard Delano was aggressive attacking and go to the line. Ochoa was not as advertised, lost the ball trying to go the hole and turned it over several times. McWhinnie made great adjustments

MVCDS- When they shared the ball they were unstoppable, Jett is blur, Isaza can shot and drive both were solid hitting shots and distributing after Jackson gave it up. Big kid Woodley outplayed Ochoa displayed outside, driving hitting 3's. Finished with stat line like 19pts, 14reb 3blks.

Summary TC is solid but don't see how they can get much better, they may have peeked as a team, no real bench and limited outside of top 6. MVCDS will be a terror to play when Kynard kids joins them from St.John. Him and Jackson in the backcourt will be a nightmare along with Woodley will be formidable down the stretch.

Have to make sure you tie your shorts when you play TC or they will be pulled off when making cuts. A little oil on your arms would help too. Not talking just bumping cutters. Push, pull, tug, scratch.....only a foul if it is called.

With their style there is no way they out score MVCD 26-9 at the foul line.

OH beat Swanton by 1. They might be turning the corner.

TC beat Gibsonburg by 10.

Stritch beat Danbury by 30+. Everyone involved in the scoring. Most points I have seen them score on the interior this year. Good to see a couple guys look for their shot. Think they made 9-11 3's.
