Why are all these games being played at LaSalle? Playing on HS sized courts are nice, but there are plenty of gyms among the WBC schools that can host these tournament games.
LS's not much bigger than most of those gyms.

That would be a huge get and a major surprise considering Price and his father are chummy.

What position is this kid? Also, isn't Nieman's brother an 8th grader at Jude?

That blows, but they need more size and athleticism. They've got good SGs coming up but they don't have another Mosely or anyone with size who will for certain stick with bball.

The kid is in 8th grade...he's been huge since 5th grade, and likely older than his peers (just a guess, don't crucify me). Not saying he won't be a good basketball player, but can we please stop crowning these kids based on what they did in grade school? In 98% of the cases, these kids are peaking early and it doesn't translate. And it shows in Elder's basketball success the past 20 years.

While there is a lot of truth to this, the kid in question is probably the best player in the Western Conference this year. You're right that it doesn't mean it will translate to HS success, but there's definitely potential there.

Agree...nothing against the kid, he's a good player. And not saying that will happen to him.

I think it's one of the major reasons we see Elder sports dominate frequently especially on the Freshman level, and then everyone wonders what happens by the time they hit the varsity field/court. Everyone blames the coaches lack of development skills....I think it's the focus on the same kids up through the ranks as those that had a name in grade school.

Agree and disagree. It was obvious in football for years S&C wasn't up to snuff. Go through the pics online of Frosh games from 7-8 yrs ago v pics of when they got up to Varsity. At the same time, it's not as easy to measure that development in bball.

Let me re-phrase...my theory is part of it. There are other factors in play as well, including S&C.

Another factor is a lot of Elder's best athletes start out playing multiple sports then switch focus to one as they move up in grades.

Talked to one of the parents last night at the games.....apparently there are 3 kids from Visi, 2 kids from Victory, 1 kid each from Lourdes, Jude, Catherine, and Ignatius that made the Elder AAU 8th grade team......wasn't sure who the 10th was.

Are only feeder kids allowed on the team? They'd be more successful with the same approach as wrestling.

They have to be kids that are going to Elder next year is one of the stipulations I was told.

It's not WBC, but I heard from a buddy that Taylor Middle School 7th grade team went 17-0 and won their league (a good league before kids bolt for parochials) and that the top player will be considering Elder.

Just one kid from Jude? Somewhat surprised to see only one kid from Lourdes on there as well, though their best player is going to X. Which player from Catherine is going to Elder?

Who do you consider to be OLL best player? For me it's Tony easy, and he's an Elder kid.

I agree. He's by far their best player. Not sure who the St X kid he's referring to is.

I only care if they have size and athletes coming from outside the feeders. Elder's got more than enough avg sized shooting Guards, they need a true Center and PG to move the needle. As it stands, this program can't win a state title.

School hasn't won a state basketball title with feeder school kids in more than 40 years.

Just my personal opinion, and it's close but I think his last name is Kirby.
