Didn't help that his best scorer either quit or was kicked off the team in mid January!?

Some people think all teams should be forced to play the same style in all situations for the entertainment of the fans.

Rumor is Coach Rooks will step away at the end of the season. It is his choice. Rooks had to make some moves which may have hurt in the win column, but it is the sign of a great coach when you make the right decisions for the rest of the team.

Not at all. I dont mind a team using the clock to their advantage. I just dont think they should be able to use up minutes on one possession that's all. Again I dont blame the kids, the coach or the team in general because it's allowed. I can't blame a team for following the rules. I just think it shouldn't be allowed and we should have a shot clock in my opinion

it is why, within 3-4 years, high school will have a shot clock.

Sorry but someone has told you incorrectly he is "stepping" away of his own choice--no coach in his early 30's gives up a head coaching job at a major conference school because he is a "nice guy" looking out for the good of the team--he was told he is not going to be re-hired. All HS coaches are on a 1 year contract and his contract is not being renewed--whether it's fair or not is up for debate--he is not leaving of his own volition from West. I do know he will show up next year coaching at a school he has coached previously--

Has Princeton ever run a back door? I am not talking about all of the teams they can out jump. If you do not need to score, so be it. Perhaps better defense is in order.

Difficult to figure out the Blue. Blown out by the last place team to end the season with three straight losses. I thought they had turned the corner.

Might be one of the worst FT shooting teams Mason has ever had.

I think watching Dean Smith’s Tarheels run the four corners, as a boy, may have corrupted my mind.

Hasn't been great (62.5% for the season), but kudos to juniors Franke, Howard, and Baarendse who went 8 for 8 at the foul line in the overtime periods with a great deal of pressure on them--it really came down to OH making huge shots (3 by Strader in the deep corner, wing 3 by Moeller, and bank 3 by Woycke) and then OH, who shoots 72% at the line for the season, sealing it in the 2nd OT on free throws by Deifel, Moeller (25 pts), and JV player Cam Brandt who had one quarter left from the JV game.

Two games this season between OH and Mason have gone to extra basketball and OH has pulled out both games to finish 12-4 in the GMC (16-6) and 2nd place just in front of the 11-5 Comets--neither team deserved to lose this game tonight--good luck to both teams in the sectional.

Not difficult at all, one of the poorest coached teams in the area. No team D, offense is a bunch of individual players, they get out-efforted every game. There’s no chance Coach Allen or Smith tolerates the type of attitude and behavior seen on the court at times this year. The core talent is there but the staff isn’t developing it from one year to the next. If I were a returning player I’d think long and hard about who I was going to play for next year. It’s a shame too, they have talent at multiple grade levels but they’re not going to challenge for the conf with the current staff.

Likely won’t be much consistency with Van Winkle there. I saw his act at West. He had way more talent then Rooks ever had and did very little with it. In the 4 years since he went to Hamilton head to head against Rooks he is 2-5 against West. Only 2 years ago win West won 15 were they more talented in my opinion. I saw a team tonight that was lazy undisciplined that got flat out got out hustled tonight. They were beat several times down the floor for layups hence West’s high shooting percentage. I will say in fairness West did hit 7-11 threes but there should be no excuse for giving up as many easy layups as West got.

Jim’s credibility is as strong as ever. His prediction of Oak Hill’s demise is right on par.
