If anyone thinks that DP's twp Canada Games level athletes, who train above and beyond whatever their basketball schedule weekly are going to break down on the big floor then shame on you!!!
I really think DP has the edge in this one if only because Gliis has played, scored and been successful on larger stages at similar venues against much tougher competition.
I give an edge to DP here as well. Their best players are seniors, Sugarloafs are 10th graders. Also the Aitken Centre has not historically been favourable to teams who are jump shot dependant and SSHS shoots the 3 alot. SSHS other major asset is their ability to turn people over, while DP is deep with ball handling. These are both the 2 toughest defensive teams in AA so anything could happen.
It would appear KV is up against it here. IF Riverview is missing Jones then they could be beatable. Again its a case of a team the needs to make 3's to succeed and at the Aitken Centre I just don't know. Lots of talent, speed and great girls basketball players in this game. I think its a lot closer then people expect.
Lets get to rumble. This is hard to say for a variety of reasons. Great teams, great players. I honestly think this one comes down to coaching. If you put anyone who is willing to let the FHS players off the chain on that Bench they win this. I just don't know that too much coaching??? (i don't think I mean that the way it sounds) will be their undoing. Great game. It could come down to whose hot, whose not, and unfortunately if somone goes down with a bizaarre injury.
