A really good job by the announcers. Great job with the coverage by Bob Long Sports. Ryan was missing their best player, but they were still very good, and it was a solid win by the Irish.Anyone wanting to take a peek at the Irish vs Archbishop Ryan - here you go. It was broadcast live by Bob Long Sports.
I agree Irish60. Keeping in mind that this was a Philadelphia based broadcast, I thought the announcers did an exemplary job of complimenting both teams players, schools and regions. I even enjoyed their relaying the details of our boys visits to the cheesesteak capitol of the universe....
Did i understand their point guard - who was very good - is just a freshman? Wow.
The Irish are on their way up to Cleveland today to play St. Ignatius at 4:00 pm. One thing for sure, this will be a FAST-paced game. Should be a good one! Go Irish!
I agree with this. They lack a certain amount of identity. Hamilton has been very good and their most consistent player, but Hays is their most talented. But he seems almost TOO deferential. At the end of the Ignatius game, Hamilton was seemingly trying to go 1-on-5; which rarely works out! Much of that was dictated by the Iggy defense, but sometimes Hays needs to be a bit more "selfish". It is a team game, but sometimes you need to take a page from Keyshawn Johnson's book and say, "Get me the damn ball"!Not sure about the personality of this team. They seem to lack consistency. Not sure if a true leader has emerged yet. Had they made their free throws down the stretch they would have won the game. Take the loss now and learn from it.
Not that I know of, someone else could potentially answer this question though. I do know that much of the school's athletic gear is through his connections.I asked this in the SVSM/Centerville post but noone replied... Does Lebron fund this team to do all that they do? There are a lot of expenses with travel, accommodations, etc. Absolutely no judgment, I think it is awesome if he is.

Thanks for the info. The opportunity that the student-athletes get at SVSM is awesome! Whether it is Lebron or not, it's awesome.The gear is Nike because of LeBron’s connection but neither he or Nike cover the cost. A coach for one of the girls’ teams told me the school pays for them.
I do not know about the travel expenses. I know both the girls and boys basketball teams had a fundraiser at the beginning of the season. I would hope LeBron covers the cost of their yearly trip to his tournament in Los Angeles.
Even funnier when you know why he turned down the public school coaching position he interviewed for and then was offered last year.There is a nice article in the Beacon about Romeo Travis and his ongoing transition from player to coach. (I'd attach the link, but it would be useless!). The article mentions Travis as potentially being groomed to replace Coach Dru sometime down the road. If true, that would certainly add some continuity to the program upon transition.
