Ive seen some of the players, team and games mentioned in the several forums below, I really don't see how some of these bad teams or players are getting so much mention. Some of the post are just ridiculous ahahah really though. Everyone has there opinion and perception but really are they watching the same thing the rest of us are watching!!!!!

Does anybody have a Dark horse team or teams from the south or the north that might make some noise come playoff time in the AA league?

I think CNBA will make some noise in the playoffs they are big and there is one guy on the team can hit the three pretty good so they might or probably will catch some teams off guard. They have a game against DRHS coming up and i think they will beat them maybe not by the same amount DRHS beat cnba but i think they will beat them. DRHS has only showed up once or twice this season so you never know what your gonna get from Dalhousie more then likely they will fade towards the end of the season. CNBA might even catch campbellton off guard if they use there big guys right.

Not sure who will make noise and maybe upset a team in the south at lot of those teams only have one or two guys so by the end of the season anybody could beat anybody over there.

Can't see to many teams knocking off Devon park either.

I don't see anyone beating Sugarloaf, but if I have to pick an underdog, I have to say Devon Park. I think they could surprise Sugarloaf at playoff time.

In reality I think Devon park is the only one who has a chance against Campbellton. I just threw Cnba in there because if they used there big guys right it would give some of the other teams trouble. There is no other team that has a chance. You might have some teams that might just might put one good game together to beat one of those teams mentioned but they come from the south. I hear mention that DRHS in the north is tough but it seems like they might have showed up for one or two games so really don't think they will be in the mix at the end. The next month should be a good one for AA and AAA.

AAA - LHHS and BHS are narrow favorites over FHS and RHS. Any of these teams can win it all. KVHS also has to be in the mix, and could be the difference at a sectional tournament where one of the big four will not be able to look ahead.

AAA - Dark Horses - OHS and SJHS both have individual talent that would allow them to explode for one game.

AA - SSHS until proven otherwise. Devon Park may be the better team discipline wise, and I like how they play. The issue is that both teams have great intensity on defense and who can make more shots is what it comes down to. At this point SSHS has more shooters.


A lot of AA is matchups. Devon Park vs SSHS is a great matchup because they both defend well, they both shoot it well, they both have great players. The other teams you could mention in AA Dalhousie, Harvey, McAdam, CNBA are not as good as DP or SSHS in my opinion but cause them matchup problems. Dalhousie 5 on 5 can defend as well as the other two but cannot handle the pressure that DP applies and struggles to find ways to score. Harvey can defend well enough and is disciplined enough vs the pressure to be in the game, but they have no go to offensive weapons and if they can't beat you up on the boards they struggle to score as well. McAadam and CNBA are the other sides of the coin. They've got dominant larger players who 1 on 1 it is difficult to stop from scoring and and who can help break pressure (at least moffit can I haven;t seen the peterson kid from CNBA play). I'm not sure both can carry their teams all season long and be healthy and ready to face top level defense geared to making their lives miserable. Also the issue of foul trouble/injuries make both these teams much more suspect. In a 1 game scenario though McAdam has enough if the starters play well to be in a game and have Moffit win it for them.

Dark Horses - AAA - JMA is a name we hear tossed around who apparently have talent but only seem to put it together now and then. If its now at the right time though???

Sorry but the kats are not really on anybody s Radar this year it's nice you want them to do well but they only have a slim chance to win keep the faith!!

Who did FHS play at the tournament that they had such an easy time with? Did they play any of the "top" teams?

I agreed with him on his post but it doesn't mean on every detail he wrote and yes the kats are up there but they are really not the legit contender that they once used to be so they will get mentioned at the top but no one really fears them anymore! yes I am a AA guy but has seen some tripple AAA this year and past.

Fredericton beat BMHS, and Woodstock in round robin. Lost to LHHS in the semi and then beat BMHS in the 3rd place game.

Here's my top 10 in AAA:

1. Bathurst- seem to be the top team right now. They did just lose to Leo Hayes, but that game not enough to knock them off.

2. Leo Hayes- have great potential and is a contender, but are inconsistent.

3. Riverview- jam packed full of shooters. Not a ton of size. Can beat anyone if they shoot well, can lose to anyone if they don't.

4. Fredericton- a step behind the top 3. Esson is strong, but no other "great" 12's...tough to win.

5. KV- to be honest...I'm not sure where they should be. This seems right though. Who have they beaten? Ton of skill though.

6. MacNaughton- Decent size, shoot it reasonably well...some games they just don't "get after it" and it costs them.

7. Oromocto- A lot better than people think. They have a couple of nice players in Jon Ryer and Brad Hovey, just not enough to compete with the top teams.

8. Sussex- Always very disciplined and run their offense. Work hard on D. Should finish 2nd in the south.

9. Woodstock- Very young team that continues to improve. Played tough game vs. MacNaughton @ TVC

10. No idea about any other teams...fill in the blank.

Thoughts?
