It will be interesting to see how this draw plays out. I could see some upsets coming in the Magrath Foothills, BOB Cardston and SWC Raymond games

That is the funniest post I've seen yet on this forum. Why did you sign it "futurelegendyyc"? You should have used "CC" or "Cougarmania" or "McMurray's Maulers" or "Max's Mom". All would have worked. All of it wishful thinking. Any residual bitterness from last weekend?

You got to be able to play defense. Players who make their teammates do all the work at the defensive end so they save their energy and not pick up fouls end up knocked out it the first round. Habitually learned behaviour over years and years eventually will take its toll. Hard to break that.

This is a good draw for the Comets with some good match ups. LBP can't be happy getting this draw as a Calgary 1 seed.

This year has been an amazing year of Basketball. There hasn't been one or two dominant teams that everyone expects to take the cake. I feel like there are 10 teams who could pull up on top at the end of this weekend. It's going to come down to who is hungriest in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. I expect very close games, high emotions, and upsets. It is March afterall.


I'll take a stab at some predictions.


1st ROUND

St. FX over Charles Spencer

Med Hat over JP

Magrath over Foothills

McNally over O'Leary


Ainlay over Lloydminister

Cardston over BOB

Raymond over Churchill

Pearson over Lacombe


Quarters

St. FX over Med Hat (Although I wouldn't be surprised with an upset, Med Hat has been playing very good lately)

McNally squeaks out a W over Magrath

Cardston over Ainlay (Cardston had a bad weekend at Zones, I think Ainlay is over-ranked)

Raymond over Pearson (Could go either way, but Raymond will have home-crowd advantage)


Semis

McNally over St. FX

Raymond over Cardston (This will be the game of the Tourney. The Greatest Rivalry in Alberta Basketball. Every game has been close, with Cardston pulling every game off this season. Raymond will be more hungry.)

3rd Place
Cardston over St. FX

FINAL
McNally over Raymond (For some reason I'm feeling McNally will take home the Banner.)

Two things
1 - If you had seen other posts from 'futurelegendyyc' you would conclude that whoever this person is, it is not a person from Cardston but more than likely from Calgary.

2- Is someone from Raymond talking smack about defense? Didn't your comets lose to the same magrath team that beat Cardston? Hasn't your comets lost to Cardston every single time they've played this year? Didn't your comets give up like 120 or so points to LCI and Hat High like within a few days. What was that about defense?

If you had seen other posts from 'Ball456' and 'futurelegendyyc' you would conclude that whoever this person is, it is not a person from Edmonton, not a person from Calgary, but more than likely the same person from the same town who is still a little bitter.

Whose fault is it anyway? Maybe Ken? Double tap if you agree.

to try and lay blame to one specific person is silly. Magrath had a very good weekend. Cardston didn't. Having said that, we're talking about an OT loss to the eventual zone champion. So it very easily could have gone the other way. Both good teams that fought hard.

First round:

Magrath
McNally

Ainlay
BoB (but barely)

Churchill (if their bigs stay on the court)
Pearson

My prediction for the rest of the way:

QF:

SFX over Med Hat

McNally over Magrath (honestly it's a coin flip, but McNally is so fun to watch)

Ainlay over BoB

Pearson over Churchill

SF:

SFX over McNally

Ainlay over Pearson

3rd PLace:

McNally over Pearson (another fun game)

Final:

SFX over Ainlay

I know it's boring to pick the 1st ranked team, but SFX is pretty strong this year. That said, this is like last year - there is huge potential for upsets - any of the top 7 could win, and the 8-11 seeds could win a couple.

4 vs 10 in the final. 1 vs 11 in the 3rd place game. I love how much parity there is in HS boys in this province. Especially true in Calgary (different City champs & provincial champs 2 years in a row, 6 strong teams, almost all of Div 1 is competitive) and the South. Can't say I know how good the Edmonton league was this year.

Would this be parity or poor ranking? I thought the South teams rankings were a little unfair. What gave the Edmonton ranker the thought that his #2 team{Ainlay} should be the #2 team in all of Alberta?

Edmonton zone went 10 wins and 5 losses at provincials
Calgary zone went 9 wins and 6 losses at provincials
South zone went 6 wins and 7 losses at provincials

FX- 3 wins 1 loss bronze
HA- 3 wins 1 loss 5th
JP- 3 wins 1 loss consolation champs
OL- 1 win 2 losses

Edmonton was pretty strong

Yes Edmonton did have good results and that was My point. An easier draw can certainly affect a teams record. Did the South results reflect a tougher draw? Being ranked 5&6 even though you finished 1&2 in your zone seemed odd to me.

I agree - The results only tell you so much... JP was 3-1, but on the 'loser' side of the bracket, where they play weaker teams. I don't think Edmonton was stronger than usual this year.
