Hamlin more than held his own offensively but on the defensive end not so much. MSJ’s two big men offered nothing at all, either. MSJ SF Wesley Chairs was also a huge liability against West. He just wasn’t athletic enough to even sneeze at West.

Believe it or not, GA, Nick Myles has shown a lot of improvement with his X’s and O’s. SFA runs better offense than in years past. It doesn’t hurt that he has his big three of Baldwin, Toles and West. All three are extremely athletic AND intelligent basketball players.

 


Also helps this one of less talented teams MSJ has fielded in some years.

Yep, the SFA - DeMatha matchup looks like the best on Day 1. Definitely some opportunities to get a quality win for the BCL teams, however recent history at the Alhambra has not been kind to the Baltimore schools.


Recent history, ancient history, and pre-historic, Baltimore privates have struggled at the Alhambra. Only one Baltimore team has won the tournament in 36 years ('96 SFA). Only 7 Baltimore privates have played in the final over the last 36 years. The WCAC holds a 48-18 record over the Baltimore privates over that 36 year period. Calvert Hall won in '82, the only other Baltimore private to win in 56 years, since Towson Catholic won in '62, the second year of the tournament.

And? All programs go through the ebbs and flows of talent disbursement. Calvert Hall is the perfect example of this phenomenon this season. MSJ has the BCL POY, an All-BCL 2nd teamer, Brelsford and a damn good freshman in Hamlin.. Nobody feels sorry for Clatchey and MSJ.

I wasn’t going to bite but you’ve lost your mind. The college recruiters don’t agree. Does Blakeney even have an offer yet? Not that he isn’t deserving of a mid to high-major offer. I’m glad Goretti won though. Didn’t want a fourth SFA-MSJ matchup.

Bishop is more hyped but Blakney is better. Blakney outplays him every time they are on the court together. He is a better all around player and a better team player.

Blakeney is related to you? It’s baffling that he hasn’t gotten any offers, though. What do you attribute this to?

IMO SFA, MSJ, McDonogh and Glenelg Country will all be better than Gilman this year. I get that Gilman football sucks but don’t overcompensate and think that Gilman will win the MIAA. It ain’t happening.

Seems like Glenelg Country School beat Gilman for the Maryland Independent Schools Tournament. If McDonogh had beaten GCS in the previous game, the Eagles would have beaten your Greyhounds in the championship too. What a terrible year for a team with such promise!

Blakney has offers. I’ve never seen him play to compare the two. But he does have offers. He’s a Bmore kid, so will be rooting for him.

Terrible year, terrible coach. Injuries played a role, but have to attribute much of it to a horrible coach. How in the world do you come in ranked the top 10 in every poll and only win 9 games? He needs to be fired.

You’re correct GA. He has six mid-major offers according to 24/7sports.com. PrepHoops.com writers have been commenting on the lack of offers for Blakeney all season. Glad he has options.

I told the board after the first or second scrimmage in November that Calvert Hall was gonna be terrible. I have seen teams this bad. Teams where the coach played guys that didn’t even deserve to be varsity basketball players. If you don’t keep talents like Justin Lewis (Poly), Montez McNeil (Georgetown Day), Darius Tilghman (City College), Adam Walden (SFA) and Zaakir Williamson (Coolidge, D.C.) you wind up putting a crappy product on the floor.

SFA leads Goretti in rebounding by 5, 20-15. The Panthers have also forced the Gaels into 11 turnovers. They can’t handle SFA’s pressure defense. Blakeney is as good as advertised but West is the best player in the court so far.

With about 4 minutes left in the game Ace Baldwin scored on a finger roll over the Gaels 6’8 Center, Tsimbila. The Panthers then went on a 5 pt run to talk a 63-58 lead with 2:44 left.
