Size matters

Postby fandb » Fri Jan 10, 2014 9:46 am

Watching basketball in ND over the years, it seems as though the teams are getting smaller and smaller in stature (Height), especially the boys. We were used to seeing the teams sport 6'5" posts or even much bigger kids. Now it seems as though we are watching teams with no one taller than 6'2". I have really noticed this in the class A teams, no size or am I just getting old?
Can anyone list the top 5 players in both A and B in both boys and girls that have any size and are respectable players?

Can't give you top 5 but I know a few things. Northstar boys starts 6'6", 6'5", 6'2", 6'2", 6'1". They played a few boys taller than them, but none with the height and ability. The NS girls have some height also with Kvilvang listed at 6'3" but I think closer to 6'4" or even 6'5". She is really a premier post in the state, and only a freshman.

Attended WNG @ Rugby last night. Don't have the lineups in front of me, but for Rugby, Z. Miller must be 6'-4" or 5", Heidlebaugh 6'-4" or 5", Bernhardt around 6'-3" and Hamilton 6'-4" or so. For WNG, E. Miller has to be a strong 6'-5". Heidlebaugh is a polished player and had a nice 2 handed dunk on a break away.

Heidlebaugh is a stud, one of the top 5 players in the state. Hard to remember the last time I've seen someone with the inside out game that he has.

Agree Heidlbaugh is one of the top players in the state. Don't agree on the other heights. Bernhardt is probably 6'1", maybe 6'2". Same with Hamilton.

Do you think Bohl and Stewart are 6-3? I know last year they were listed at 6-2, but girls generally don't grow much when they get that age.

I could be off. When I last saw Gabbie she looked like a solid 6'3". I have not seen Hannah in person lately, but on tv she looks to be about the same size as Gabbie.

You're probably right. As stated, didn't have lineups and was going by them standing next to one another on the floor.
