    Boys State BB Tournament

    State basketball is here. Was surprised to see that CR Kennedy lost last night, only scored 35 points too. With them out I'd say it's almost a lock for Linn-mar vs. Ames in the championship game. I'm biased, but I don't see how Ames doesn't win State (knock on wood). What's everyone think?

    I have been saying all year the only way Ames loses a game between now and March 2010 is to be unfocused or injury.

    Kennedy is a defensive team that has trouble scoring. Not surprised at all. Lot of young players as well.

    Re: Boys State BB Tournament

    As a johnston grad, I'm rather surprised they made it. I really think the CIML besides a few team is down talent wise. I might have to make a trip down to The Well to watch Urbandale-Johnston round 3.

    Re: Boys State BB Tournament

    As an Urbandale grad I loved seeing them stomp Hoover last night, especially after hearing Marty go off about how the only team that could give Ames a game would be Hoover in state. Looks like Linn-Mar is the only one now.

    I don't know much about Linn-Mar, but Ames has pretty much dominated everyone thus far, including Cedar Falls twice, who beat Linn-Mar.

    Being an Ames grad, I finally better go watch them now that they'll be playing a couple miles from my office.

    They didn't the 2nd time, the first time was ugly. But interesting thing about the Johnston-Urbandale series, is no team has gone 3-0 against the other when having to play three times in a season. The last occurance was a few years back, urbandale swept johnston during the season, but when substate came around, Johnston won, but then proceeded to get thrashed by an average Ankeny team.

    Re: Boys State BB Tournament

    Linn Mar and Ames would match up fairly well if Ames didnt have HB. Linn Mar would be the better team IMO, they have a lot of talent. HB puts Ames over the top. My prediction Ames 72 LinnMar 60

    Re: Boys State BB Tournament

    I have to give a shout out for the high school that I graduated from, Central Lee.

    Central Lee is located in Southeast Iowa and is in class 2A. The boys basketball team made the state tournament for the first time in school history. They will be playing top ranked Solon. Here's hoping for a huge upset!
