    Mark Dockery out at Twin Springs?

    Is this true? Had a buddy from over that way tell me some powerful people were moving him out? Incredible if so, really stabbing one of their own if this is true.

    Lee Has a Vacancy

    Will this lead to any players transferring to Union?

    State championships (3/6-3/9)

    Best coach in SWVA history, not even sure it’s debatable at this point.

    Baseball getting started

    Baseball is the most competitive sport in far SWVA on the male side. I expect that to continue this spring, our area has produced some really good players recently. It’s interesting to watch around here, many have adopted this launch angle philosophy which has led to great success for the better players and has led to complete failure for the others.

    Eastside

    Rarely if ever discussed on here but man what a run these last two years. Back to back trips to the Final 4 and to do it after losing all they lost last season. Pretty incredible, I wouldn’t be surprised if Wise isn’t a sellout Tuesday.

    Martinsville

    So both their boys and girls teams could be coming to Region D and play at different sites on the same day? Way to stick to it to them, why isn’t GC playing at UVA-Wise? That would alleviate this issue.

    Martinsville

    Don’t disagree, would’ve made more sense to play AA at Va High and A at Wise or vice versa.

    Martinsville

    Seems to me it would’ve made more sense to have A at one venue and AA at another, wouldn’t matter which gym had which.

    Mountain 7 District Tournaments

    Nothing happened with racist twitter accounts, nothing happened when McClung was intentionally fouled, nothing happened when Central was going to let anyone dressed in all white in free when Union had 3-4 black starters, nothing will happen now. Sick place, sick people I blame the communities for continuing to support these antics. Stand up, don’t be a lemming!

    Mountain 7 District Tournaments

    I agree. I have no issue with the kids, it’s the coach. Sad situation that won’t end. Why don’t the parents or supporters raise enough stink to force a change?

    Mountain 7 District Tournaments

    Never ends with Central. Nobody in Wise has the guts to stop it. Embarrassing for the entire area, shame. I have the upmost respect for the other programs at the school. Boys basketball is just a mess and it will never end. I can only hope injuries are avoided for the kids involved.

    Central @ Union

    Congratulations to Central on a big W, outplayed and out hustled Union. Still don’t understand why #20 doesn’t play more for them. Officias swallowed their whistle their at the end, not sure it would’ve mattered way Union was played. They just got out worked and didn’t respond to the physical play.

    Central @ Union

    Yes, I’d arrive early. If the past is any indicator a large congregation of Central fans sit behind their bench regardless if that’s the home side or not.

    Central at Gate City

    Surprised this hasn’t been started, what’s Big Blue Nation have to say about this one?

    Ridgeview @ Central

    How does Grayson fit in, are they having a good year? I guess hypothetically if Central lost to Union and Battle next week they could miss regional?

    Ridgeview @ Central

    What does this do for regional seeding? As for the game, did Central play small and play the Bishop kid or play big?

    Central at Gate City

    Horrible year for injuries, Central and Union have each lost their best player to go with the injuries at GC and Richlands. Shame, you only get 4 years to play high school ball. Kids won’t ever get this time back.

    Ridgeview @ Central

    Warriors by 10 plus. TJ has them playing well at the right time, they’re going to be a dangerous team in the tournament. Watched them against Lee the other night, they seem to play better when the Bishop boy (I think that’s his name) plays. He killed us and although he didn’t score much against Lee the flow of the game is just better. He’s an athlete and causes problems. Assuming they can rebound, Central is better playing small in my view.

    GC at Union

    Been here since 4 pm, the varsity girls are about to start and the Union fans haven’t even filled our side. What a disgrace, anybody who promotes the Union fan base, it’s a farce. See the regional football playoffs for further evidence. Also, why do we have same officials for JV and Varsity?

    GC at Union

    My school doesn’t get gift possessions from the AOA on inadvertent whistles, so maybe I have a different view. In all seriousness, I’ve got no gripes with the basketball officiating this season. Yet, the point remains, you can’t have the same people doing all four games when it’s that big of a game. I know that wasn’t the case throughout the region last night.

    GC at Union

    Good effort by both teams. Kudos to Compton and Vermillion making some big buckets. Boys games were very entertaining, girls were not. GC won the game on the glass and at the 3-point line. The officials didn’t impact the game in terms of win/loss for either team, period. With that said, sending a crew to ref 4 games when it’s 1 vs 2 in a AA district is absurd and the AOA should be ashamed of itself. Not fair to the officials who officiated the coaches or the players. Best of luck to GC the rest of the way.

    Union Basketball 3-0 This Week

    So I pointed out the lies, Union goes 3-0 and the haters go silent. You people are pathetic, enjoy the wins. If you’re mad, let’s go back to the John Crockett days when we sucked. Roll Bears Roll! I

    Union Basketball 3-0 This Week

    Seems like someone needs to learn the difference between opinion and fact. Kudos to Union, the players and the coaches. This fan will support you and not head to the message boards to rip you like other Bears fans have when things aren’t going well.

    Union Basketball 3-0 This Week

    No need to pretend, it’s true. Everything I’ve said is true, I think some of you all want to lose just so you can complain!
