True dat. Meant no disrespect to SVSM, just acknowledging TSJ talent.

Great game for Jackson. Nicholas showed a ton of heart tonight. I think Williams came off as thinking he could intimidate Nicholas but Kyle was having none of it. In fact Nicholas got in his head and was key to Jax victory.

Jackson carried the weight of great expectations all season and are headed to Columbus as hoped/expected by many. Great job by the team.

Love the intensity both Hill and Palotta bring. Def huge difference makers.

Never said you did, not everyone on here is trying to pick on everyone else.

Just stating the obvious!

Palotta has really grown as a player this year and Nicholas playing his best ball of the season at the right time.

Gonna be a battle. Eds seems to be a pretty complete team. Looks like they have some big bodies and good guards as well as excellent coaching. Jackson will have their work cut out for them, but I think they can pull it off.

Frustration got to Williams. He started well but then it all fell apart.

The Bears have been playing with lots of confidence since the shaky, tentative showing against Copley. I suspect Debevec isn't 100% pleased with how they executed the spread offense late in the game tonight but it didn't matter.

On to the next one.

The coach is still the weak link in this chain IMO. Both coach and team are in uncharted waters now.

What does seem clear is that getting through the Fed and then the District had them ready for a deep run. They made the regional games look relatively easy.

Hill is what got to Williams. That kid never takes a play off and gets stronger as the game goes on. Williams just wilted under the constant strain of battling Hill.

Everyone keeps saying Jackson played poorly against Copley for some self-inflicted reasons. Maybe Copley was just good

The next one is going to be tough - really tough.

Watched the Eds/Garfield Heights game on replay last night.

I like Jacksons chances against St Eds. They are a very good team, but I think Jackson's athleticism will be too much for them. I don't think they have anyone who can hang with either Hill or Young.

Who is going to score the points other than the big two? Ed's can rely on 4-5 guys that can lead the team in scoring on any given night.

Jackson has other players that can and will score. Palotta and Nicholas have both had good games before.

Jackson has become a pick your poison situation. If teams clog the lane, Young will live out on the 3 point arc and Nicholas and Stanislawski will join him. They pass so well right now that a player slashing from the back door side is open for a high percentage shot (esp Hill)

Any Jax opponent would still make someone besides Young or Hill beat you.

It's 'Ed', it was only one guy, St. Edward.

You guys ever been to the big game, St. Ignatiuses vs. St. Eds?? Or if Eds wins Friday, do you have them beating Moellers in the final?

C'mon, mans.

Maybe, but then I've had family that worked at Fords, Hoovers, and Timkens.

Please accept our apologies for the last two useless, time wasting posts. They added nothing to the discussion.

Fortunately most of us actually would like to discuss the game and not nit pick.

Or is it nit-picks

I'm going to assume two things about Eds being called an "underdog" in this match-up:
1. Jackson is a senior-laden club vs a youthful St Eds squad.
2. It's Josh Weir's job to sell papers and generate clicks.

I remember that scrimmage Coach Flannery mentioned in the Canton Repository article. It was months ago but it wasn't even close.

I expect a better game this time around

I get the reasoning behind the underdog thing.

I have now watched 4-5 St. Ed games from this year. They are definitely not overwhelming. At points I think to myself "how are they winning this game, the just aren't that impressive, they don't really do anything that wows you."

That is probably the thing that is most scary and impressive about them. They are winning all of these games against high level competition and not just squeaking by either. The simple truth is that they do all the little things well.

Jackson is a high flying exciting team, in the past two games they have probably had 8 dunks, but they do all of the little things well also.

Hope this makes sense.

Def makes sense. Jax has been clearly superior thru most of the season. St Eds
not so much.

I guess I just think its hard to ID an "underdog" at this point. All 4 are legit.

Here's Rick Hairston's take on Jackson's "grown damn men" and the rest of the Division I field.

Coach Hairston is a class act and a credit to his profession.

Roda is neither of those.
