  • The Dog Pound

    It takes a dog catcher to handle “BIG WES”… it’s nothin’ but the dog in him. “Huff!”
    Oh! Tech beat DLS… and not by 2.

  • BigGreen

    I actuallt thintk Justin Standley should have ben 1st team,he was the main guy who kept them afloat most of the season. he has hit some big shots for the this year. I don’t think Chris James should have been 1st team, and he probably wouldn’t if there was really a vote, I know how the slection process works. Plus TJ Taylor led the league in scoring this year as a sophmore and he went 2nd team, so you know it is about who has the most wins gets the most votes, Whack!

  • BigGreen

    Will CHerry had the best Dunk of the year tonight it was one of the best I have seen, and I have seen alot. He has really grown as a player, he did whatever he wanted to do tonight.

  • BigGreen

    I think you would have to agree with me on this Eculb that Castlemonts girls program is similar to MAcks boys in the sense that they have been in the OAL final game each year for the past 10+ years.

  • E_CULB

    Actually Green Basketball is different they do actually vote. My 10th grade year I believe Fremont whole starting 5 went first team.

  • E_CULB

    You sure TJ lead the league in scoring?

  • BigGreen

    yes sir I am sure, very sure!Nobody else had out of the ordinary scoring each game. Mack, skyline,castlemont and fremont were all balanced scoring teams. O-high and tech are they only teams that had 1 or two guys with actual high scorers over 15 a game. But if that is the case that they vote, then J.Standley got a raw deal, he was one of the best players in the leage this year in my opinion, he was a true difference maker.Chris James did not have a great OAl season at all, he did very little.

  • dez

    yes tht dunk shuck laney

  • BigGreen

    Man it sure did. I was very impressed!

  • dez

    If Mack would have ran the floor every possession thy wouldve put up 100 easy…I don’t see anybody playin close with Mack until State

  • BeCoolPicou

    Standely from Mack…very impressive. Second best player on that team to me. I was shock to see him on the 2nd team, he should of had the kid from Skyline spot on the first team.

  • BigGreen

    Becoolpicou, we on the same page with that, If they voted for that, someboody was trippin!we both sat there and watched him hit nice shots last nice and Skyline did not play any dfense, they looked horrible defensively. I was disappointed in that from a coaching standpoint because Will Cherry did whatever he wanted to do.
