Region 1 has a good crop too!


Not sure where you are headed with this comment Winner, but just be careful which tree you are barking up. I would wager scc sees the most Region 2 games of anyone so I would trust his speculation on Region 2 implicitly. Scc has unquestioned cred...

Sounds to me like Winner is agreeing with scc, not questioning scc's credibility.

Yes, I believe he is agreeing. I believe this comment is directed to the banter of Thompson and HCV being the only 2 teams that realistically have a chance of winning the region earlier in the season.

you Indeed read it wrong, but what did you think I was implying?

and on a side Note, I know a lot of folks that see many many games and may even be an official, coach or staff etc etc but they might not all see it the same way.....a few posts back I had stated, that I felt there weren't any major gaps between "3 and 4 and even 5" after a post stating "big gap between 2 and 3" (when actually 3 were tied in win losses at the time)........
not tooting my horn, I'm just saying theres talent and skill across the board....theres true basketball players on all teams..some people have blinders and I believe some people couldn't fathom the thought of an equal or a neutral to a favorite.....they want to call them all an "upset"... :)

I would love to see the 3 bigs for Thompson share the court.

Basketball has evolved into 1, 2, 3, & 2 bigs mentality wise and in offensive play tactics... it has evolved away from 2 guards 2 Forwards and 1 Center even though thats how its announced before the game......not to take anything away from any team or coach, everyone does it the way they think is best...........

also (and I believe FW/M has set this presidence in the State in the last 5-6 years) the speed game seems so essential, HC-V has benefited hugely from all their meetings with FWinds in the past 5 years and now Thompson has engaged in making sure they are on their schedule also.....this is an important thing for matching up with High Quality, high speed Ball, Dunseith, St. John, Turtle Mountain, Parshall, White Shield, this is their style too and its becoming the style throughout top ranked teams and it is trying to be implemented into teams who don't even have the total personal for it.....some may think its the "shot clock affect" but its literally Coaches seeing it, and coaches doing it....

If you play AAU or ECI the first thing one will notice is "speed" ......everything is faster...

By the way ... running and gunning has been around forever. Some coaches like and some don't. Nothing new. If you have athletes that can finish... run....

I'm not talking running and gunning...I'm talking transition Basketball, literally very little Offensive sets
along with stingy D...

A running and gunning team is usually unsuccessful in big games because its unorganized and everbody wants to shoot....transition basketball isn't "gunning"

Transition off of a rebound or steal is a taught art in Practice, or generally a result of 5-6-7 guys or gals that have been playing with one another for a long time along with a Coach that recognizes what he/she has in the tank.....Smith (FW) for example has harnessed the "run and gun" (used to play this way) and stresses Defense and Transition

I agree fast basketball is great but that doesn’t always work against good teams who are ready for it unless your the more lengthy team and play solid defense.
Good team Defense and offensive plays are the most important strategies than just transition basketball especially in close/important games. Win the paint and win the game!!

Is it just me or has Region 2 developed in to full fledged two-team race with the rest of the pack chasing them? There are a lot of solid teams, but with how HCV and Thompson are playing as of late, it would need to be quite the upset to knock them off in my opinion.

Yes, I agree. Thompson isn't the head and shoulders favorite you thought they would be still are they?? I was way off about Larimore they have exceeded my expectations. I do think teams like Grafton, Cavalier, Larimore and HN could beat either one, I agree on the two teams above the rest.

Going into regionals, Thompson will be the one seed. This group is only going to get better the more Scwabe plays with them. Because of that, Thompson is head and shoulders the favorite in Region 2 in my opinion.

There are 5 teams in R2 that could represent at State and compete with the other 7 Region representatives and do well, Thompson has earned the favorite spot but someone could blow out a Nike, we don't know... games are played for a reason, Region 1 Girls tourn has proven that, one basket here, one basket there and the tide is turned...

If there was a "head and shoulder fav" in R2 well then that team is also State Champ, and I don't think that will be easy for any team from any region, the last 2 State Champs (same team ironically) won on buzzer beater 3's

What does everyone think of the Region2 tourney starting today. I think there will be two games that have a chance to be pretty sizable victories for Thompson and HCV. Grafton-Cavalier and Larimore-Hatton-Northwood are pretty intriguing matchups. I still seem to think there is a greater than 50 percent chance that Thompson and HCV end up in title game. But the winner of the Grafton-Cavalier game will be dangerous too. What do you guys think?

Tournament is going to be a dandy. Think there is going to be a so called "upset" somewhere along the line. Top 4 are salty, Larimore is only team to knock off Thompson this year and H-N has had some good wins. Wow. Should be fun.

Give credit to North Border for making a positive account of itself in the first round against Thompson. I wouldn't be surprised if they are a top 4 team in the region next season.

Congrats to the Thompson Tommies on advancing to its first ever trip to the B! Also, congrats to Senior Player of the Year to Dalton Albrecht of Grafton and Coach of the Year Brandy George. On the Coach of the Year topic, Region 2 had so many deserving candidates this year. In my opinion, you couldn't have gone wrong George, Jennifer Collison, Elliot Rotvold, Keenan Konschak or Riley Lilemoen. Region 2 has always been home to a lot of great coaches and this year wasn't any different. Congrats to all teams on a fun season and good luck to the Tommies at state!
