    High School Basketball Thread

    In response to the question, “What is Lutheran basketball?”, the HC cuts loose with, ”All gas, no brakes.” Love it.

    Just turned it on, so haven’t been watching it, but the 1st broadcast analysis I hear in a game in which the loser is getting boat raced despite trending to 65 points or so is that the issue has been with their shooting. I somehow doubt that’s right.

    George Mason’s Josh Oduro entering the portal. Nice player. For any school looking for a Race Thompson-type blue collar below the rim 4, this is their guy. I assume he’s following English to Providence.

    At this point there may not be anything more inevitable in sports than Gene Steratore supporting an official’s call.

    Hell of a defensive 1st half by SDSU.

    (2025) - G Meleek Thomas

    Lincoln Park has a senior high-major PG who’s really good and with the game on the line the HC’s call is just give it to the soph and clear out. That kid’s a Guy.

    For anybody who likes their undersized shot hunting machines, here’s your guy: 6’2” SG Quincy Olivari from Rice entering the portal. Almost 19/gm last year and a career 37% 3pt guy. Not the worst defender, either. Will have a massive offer list.

    I recant my Graham Ike concerns. Had forgotten he’s a lefty, so Woody’s contractually obligated to pursue him.

An athletic enough 6’7” big time shooter with a winning pedigree is being de-prioritized in favor of portal guys. Somebody is going to steal a kid here.

    I like Reeves a lot as a talent, he just plays with his hair on fire and he has moments, like Troy did, where you can just see the misplay coming. But he’s not a bad shooter, he just takes some bad looks. And he’ll have defensive moments like X does where he’s just begging the ref to call one on him, but he has shutdown capabilities. To me, it’s all about do you think you can find the switch? With the right coach, he could be a steal. If not, he’s gonna make people nuts, which definitely happened at UF.

    Will always defer to a coach because it’s his job to make it work. But schematically, it doesn’t strike me as a fit at all. He’ll rightfully expect 30 mins a night, as will Reneau. So, they’d play 20 mins a night together, and that just looks to me like a spacing issue on offense and defensively you’re gonna struggle in ball screen action, you’re gonna struggle with perimeter motion and your guards better be really good controlling dribble penetration because you don’t have a rim protector. But I think you’re right about the competition for Ike. I imagine there will be better fits for him. So, we’ll see what happens.
