    Hey Kane, who does Magnolia have that is from a different town starting on their team. Care to enlighten us as to your smarts.

  • Greg

    Well "luring" Rondale Watson from Oak Hill hasn't bought Mr Justice a boys championship has it? It sure didn't help Oak Hill's cause did it? Has anyone checked to see where his family works?

  • Kane

    I agree the wvssac officiating is bad, what happened to the 3 second rule? The small public schools days in Charleston are over! The private schools and ex AA schools will fill the bracket. Sectional play and Regional play should be played on neutral sights, no home court advantages. I am a fan of the WV HIT, It would be nice if the whole tournament was played in Summersville. The games are competitive and I have seen some nice players. Every players dream is winning a state title, The WVSSAC needs to go to 4 classes!

    • Craig

      4 Classes???? Ohio has 6 times the high schools that WV has and it gets by with 4 classes in Basketball. Are you listening to the junk your dishing out Kane?? What kind of watered down WV Basketball would it be with 4 classes not to mention all of the other sports.

  • Tj11

    GEast had 1 girl from Kentucky that came when she was a freshman.. That's it!!! I mean really look at the map on all these schools you will see a lot of kids playing out of the district!!!
    Officials in WV from top to bottom are better in WV than VA OH especially in southern WV. These guys are from the big east conf USA you people need to quit whining and hold coaches and players responsible instead of making excuses for them!

  • Bishop

    Tricrog - there is going to be disparity in every classification no matter how you divide the schools. This year, Bridgeport, Fairmont and North Marion benefit from moving down. Ditto for Class A. Look for Tug Valley or Magnolia to bring a class A boys title to the public schools but I find much, much more gratification in Capital girls beating Greenbrier East which has more out-of-area/out-of-state players than any West Virginia team, private or public.

  • Tricrog

    Yea how bout a AAAA class and help out all the small public schools in each classification.
    As far as private schools go, It is insane that u can have almost and sometimes an entire starting lineup of kids from other states and yet play in the smallest school division. Previous post is right who in the state can beat the St. joe girls? It is beyond belief that these schools do not have their own class or have to play up . But it still isn't fair to AA or AAA schools to get beat by out of state kids. WV needs a prep class cause thats basically what it is.

  • Bishop

    You should get your wish Marty now that the SSAC has sent Class AA mercenaries to break the private school stranglehold in Class A boys basketball. Forget about girls, St. Joe can beat any team in WV. AAA, AA or A.

  • scott

    outsource? to who?

    • Kane2

      Theres got to be better. Have you not watched a game this year?

    • MyView

      Ohio, Virginia, Im sure there is a neighboring state with better training and oversight of officals then the WVSSAC

      • Old

        I'm not sure about Ohio and Virginia, but I've heard that Pennsylvania does not require basketball officials to take the National Federation of HS basketball rules tests each year. The only year that PA requires this is the first year in which an official works games. The WVSSAC does require this each year for all officials. Officials in all states have bad games on occasion, its part of the game.

  • MyView

    I am no way a fan of out sourcing. But after watching the state of officals "trying" to call basketball games in southern WV. We should hope the out of control WVSSAC, looks into outsourcing the officals for the Girls and Boys State Championship Games in Charleston.

    • Kane2

      I agree, officiating is awful. Don't the jokers from the SSAC evaluate them. But when the SSAC looks at the 3 seconds call as being a hindrance I don't think those guys running the show ever played the sport. This is what I was told when I asked a ref why they never call 3 seconds any more.

  • marty gipson

    Let's go single A public schools

    • Kevin

      Only if Magnolia does it. The hardest section in any class. Magnolia,Madonna,Wheeling Central, Bishop Donahue and Cameron. Region 1 Section 1.

      • Kane2

        I disagree. All 3 catholic schools are down, and with way over 400 students Mag. should still be in double A. They might not get passed the CBs. They were once beaten by 18 earlier. But I feel they should be out since they lost and Mag. should not have home court advantage. The WVSSAC have made a mess of things including the officials. I asked a ref what ever happened to the 3 second call. He said the SSAC views it as a hindrance. That's why the offensive player can always be in position for rebounds, he just stays in the lane. Why did Clay Battelle and Morg. Trinity have to travel clear to Dodridge for Tourney play?. Why do some teams have home court advantage? Why cant you get in touch and comment to the WVSSAC? I wish all single A public schools would not participate in WVSSAC tourney and do the HIT tourney where you play against similar school sizes (not a school with 120 students against a school with 420 students which are both class A now) and no private schools.

        • Bigblueman

          Magnolia did not have one of their starters when they lost to Clay Battell early this year. And I am a huge fan of this lose and have to go on the road. Cuz it was designed to get the best right teams in the state down to Charelston.

          • Kane

            If they want the BEST teams in Charleston then why have sectional and regional tournaments! Should be no home court advantages! Tournament play is all about UPSETS ! Take your EX AA schools and PRIVATE schools to Charleston. Magnolia has a kid from a different town starting and ALL private schools RECRUIT! LETS GO C BEES!

      • earl

        U have a double A school playing against WC who has players from 3 states. The other schools don't have a chance. Glad Magnolia lost in football also

      • Tj11

        GE has 1 girl from Kentucky that's been there since she was a freshman... Southern officials out of control WVSSAC ... Some people really are lost!!!

      • Tricrog

        Your right and region 1 section 2 is either the 2nd or 3rd hardest section in the state so again this year region one is loaded even with losing Parkersburg Catholic and Williamstown. Watch this year again in boys A it will be a private school or maybe one of the doubleAA schools that just dropped down (tug valley won AA last year and Magnolia is really good). In A girls its so lopsided I just look in disbelief!! You could take the best girls from all public A schools and they probably couldnt beat ST. Joe. They are that good , does anyone no how many if any starters are from WV?

        • ter

          All of the starters for St Joe girls are from WV - 4 are from Huntington and other 1 from the Nitro area

  • Kevin Maupin

    Good luck to the Flying Eagles and the Crusaders.
