 We're probably too young to handle this level of competition this season. We have some talent, but I'm concerned about us getting to 14 wins with the Yarnell + playing in the CVAC.

High caliber competition that my team can sustain until they run out of gas midway through 2nd half. Same story every game.

Congrats to mduncanhogs and St Marys TX on his/their 4th Yarnell title. He ties bvb24 for most Yarnell titles won.

I think this was a very good field and interested in how these 5th set of games are decided even though the title is secure. Harding was up 14 with 7:40 left on the road and almost choked. Sunk 2 FTs with seconds left to win. I think both Longwood and Harding will be better at season's end as they both have young guys playing key roles. The other 4 teams in this field are very, very good and will only get better. I love burk's backcourt, that McGhaney kid from Indy, and mduncan's 1-2 inside-outside punch of Murphy and Barrows. Hillsdale can beat you with a variety of players. 

Fun tournament this year. I'd just like to win a game or two more. Maybe we can take down the champ tonight with them knowing they have it sewn up. ;) If I remember correctly, I did that on more than one occasion.
