    All those kids are back next season so it could still happen......One thing I will say is that Coach Mullins is without a doubt turning over a team that is set up to be a Region D contender IMHO the bigger issue for next season is retooling the Defense that is losing several key players and was far from solid vs the pass

    Central definitely has the components to beat Gate City. With that being said, I'm not usually one to be critical but the rest of that mess makes it appear that you're on acid.

    This post 🤘🤘 Mcamis isn't that good. Put a good defense on him and he's shut down. Play physical basketball and he's crying. He will be put in his place soon enough and I can't wait to see it 😁

    Pretty sure that tracks back to the early years of the Tom Rife era. And to the point about the quality of basketball there, you're probably showing your age with your post and I am showing mine with this response. Beginning with the '82-'83 season Richlands went on a consistent winning trajectory. The Blues won the SWD tournament (under the old 11 team configuration) twice in three years and closed out the end of that decade by sweeping both regular season and tournament titles three years in a row. Even as enrollment was beginning to decline, the program put five different teams on the court on a consistent basis (varsity, jv, 9th grade, 8th grade, and 6th/7th grade) while still cutting kids in tryouts. Oh, and the girls were pretty good during that stretch as well. Pretty much mirroring the boys side -- although the Lady Blues actually had better success in the postseason. 1986 team lost a close game in the Class AA state semifinal (well before the basketball playoffs were expanded to 6 groups). All of this contributed to a solid identity for Richlands as a "basketball school."

    Youre the only person getting so worked up over Chris Akers. The Akers stuff isn't about him personally, how do you still not get it? It's a meme specifically to this forum. It's an inside joke and it's not used to denigrate Chris Akers.

    Warriors vs Bears

    Had to get in here and talk about how proud I am of our Warrior Basketball program right now. Right now, our Warriors are 10-1. We are undefeated in Virginia and have lost only once that being to a team in the Arby’s Classic. We would have won the sixth place game but when you play an Arby’s Classic tournament schedule like we had this year, which was way tougher than Gate City’s in 2017-18 when they won the sixth place game, you do what you can. Last night, the Warriors were true to their school name. Hats off to Zac who had the Bears very prepared and while the game was surprisingly close, people outside of Wise County have to realize that all of our basketball contests are like this. History proves it. Union may currently be 1-3 but the record does not show how great of a team they are. Our Warriors are by far the best team in our district. Lee would be second. Maybe GC or Ridgeview is third or fourth but Ridgeview on the other hand isn’t that great of a team. Athletic yes but not a great basketball team. They and GC are very much alike this year. The only player that GC has this year is Dean but he doesn’t impact a game like Isaiah. Ridgeview for instance we had them down nearly 20 but a lot of our guys lost that competitive edge and let them come back. We forgot everything about the game of basketball and it about cost us. All except Isaiah who is truly by far the best player in the district. Without him we don’t win. Ridgeview according to my reports from someone who listened to the game on the internet played close to GC all night long and led them. Proves my point. Elijah is for sure the second best just as the paper says but definitely not quite the impact player that Isaiah clearly is and without a doubt the very best player not just in Southwest Virginia but in the entire area from Roanoke to Knoxville. Show me anyone who can take over a game and make such an impact like he can. No one has impacted the game like him ever since Mac McClung at Gate City and if not for his injury last year he would be as good as Mac or better. Last night proved he is a way better player on the floor than Mac ever was in high school because he was calling out what defenses to play and doing the things basketball coaches never dream their players could ever do on the high school level. Mac was a good player like Isaiah but he never had his basketball savvy. People may ask why he isn’t getting offers from division one schools. Maybe he is but Isaiah is so humble he will not talk about them and crave attention like everyone from Gate City does. People ask me if we are excited about playing GC next week. We are but it is just another game where the district teams are going to give us their best shot. Make no mistake, all GC is worried about is their “streak”. Appearances mean everything to them. After we take their best shot Tuesday, just watch and see who is left standing. We might celebrate a little bit but not much because if you know what the outcome will be and are prepared for that outcome it’s not that big of a deal and we have had bigger wins this year anyway. Our goal is set way higher than beating GC. Our goal is Richmond. Gate City is just a stumbling block to get there. Very proud of our team in all respects! #BadBoys4Life #WarriorBasketball

    I thought the same thing about him stepping into the role when he left Fort Chiswell. Especially, with this line in the Roanoke article... "It came down to if I don’t take this opportunity now I don’t know when this situation with location and job would come open again."

    Warriors vs Bears

    The tale of two halves was the theme last night. Wise was hitting their shots and playing good defense in the 1st half and then GC flipped the switch in the 2nd half and took it to them. Wise definitely only had the two scoring threats on offense. I read the coaches quote about the physical play but that’s how SWVA basketball is played. It’s always very physical, especially between these two teams. I thought it was a clean game from both sides though, not like in games past. McAmis can create his own shot and they were falling up until a few minutes into the 2nd half. A lot of that can be credited to the defense played on him. Hayes, I felt like could have been used more on offense. He was good at driving to the paint and getting a good look. GC looked too passive all night to me. Of the games I’ve seen this year they were looking to get the ball to Dean more so then they usually have. He came through hitting big shot after big shot but he’ll have to get more help on that side of the ball going down the stretch. The rematch in Wise will be a classic I’m sure as well as the district championship, barring anything crazy happening. If Wise beats GC next time and they finish tied do they have a playoff game to determine the winner or how do they determine that?

    Honestly both philosophies have mart (We will work on what we do well and leave it to you to stop it, or take what the Defense gives you even if it is not what you want to be doing. The one thing i would have liked to see RV do better this season is get the QB more involved in the running game Would like to have seen Lewis in the game with Adkins a bit more as well I think that kid may have a big season next year

    You aren't very good at quotes are you? Why are you so worked about a high school kid? Most teenagers are jerks, but it's way worse to be an adult trashing a high school aged kid on a public forum. Most teenagers can grow out of any bad behavior, I'm assuming you're an adult, what's your excuse? I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM DEFENDING A MCAMIS ON A FORUM, WE ARE IN BIZZARO WORLD.

    Ridgeview has played Wise Central extremely tough these last two years... they always say in rivalry games, throw the records out the window. People fail to remember that Ridgeview actually swept the regular season meetings last year with Central.

    Central vs Ridgeview

    I am really interested to see how this team responds Friday night at Union. For the teams sake I hope they come out and have a better focus, intensity, heart, and will to win that they lacked against Ridgeview. I am not downing anybody in this post at all, Isaiah is an excellent ball player, and has a ton of upside to him, but he is not the player he is without his teammates, and I will say that and stand behind it through and through!!

    I agree with you #BBN 100%. There is definitely no I in TEAM but you would never know that from the stats of last nights game. I was also very disappointed in what McAmis put in the paper about the team minus 1!! He has a great team this year that could go farther than in the past two years but if the McAmis’ don’t quit playing (trying to play) a one person game it will not happen.

    Grundy lost on a buzzer beater to a very much improved Lee squad. Had they beat Lee, they could have competed for that tournament's title.

    Central @ Lee

    Personally I have not seen Lee High this year, but I have seen Central. Central is very experienced and very long. They start 5 seniors, and have 2 seniors coming off the bench along with some under class men that all are capable of playing good ball and giving the Warriors good minutes.They are very physical and play good help defense, and all 5 starters are capable of knocking down shots and scoring at any given time. Central probably will be a little tired from the trip to Florida and the Arby's Classic, but I don't see them letting this one slip by them. Central by 10 to 12. Better guard Hayes and McCamis tough, either kid is liable to go for 30+ on any given night. I agree with you Burrell's Pearls, I hope the officiating is pretty good in this one, like you said could be a very physical game.

    I believe it is Rasnick, Cusano, Jenkins, Honeycutt and someone else. Union got a nice W over a 5-1 Burton team tonight by double digits. Bears won't be an easy out for anyone, lots of grit. But not a lot of inside presence, gonna get killed on the boards most nights. Gonna be tough to compete with Wise and GC for M7, but Union has a case for third best.

    Impressive Win By Central

    I dug a little deeper. The original Arby's fields did not contain the talent the later years had. During the last 10 years......only 6 local teams have placed in the top 6 spots: 2010 Tennessee High 6th, 2012 Science Hill 6th, 2015 David Crockett 4th, 2017 Dobyns Bennett 5th & Gate City 6th, and 2018 Dobyns Bennett 6th. (I looked through the lists quickly. Could have missed one.)

    1. Wise- if they only one kid AND they dont let success get go to their head a continue to work then I would give they will have to 1 seed 2. Ridgeview- if they can keep Atkins from running off to IMG then they will be at the top and most like lose at home 3. Graham- Graduated a ton of good seniors that have played had played a lot in 2 long playoff runs but just like Chilhowie this year all those young kids got an extra year of practice because of play off practice IMO that is like a red shirt and it helps a lot 4-6- Richlands, Union, Tazewell- not in any certain order but these guys will probably hold down these spots Richlands and Union will because they are Richlands and Union they are well coached they have a system that works and they have kids that buy in. I am not 100% sure what Tazewell has coming back but I know they werent bad even with a ton of guys missing. They will build on a good season as long as their best players dont jump ship to Richlands or Graham. 7 Gate City- could be the the group before but I dont know what they have coming back. I know they do have a great staff as long as they hold on to that continue to improve then they could get back to the GC of old in the next few years 8-10 VA High, Battle, Marion - VA high has one of the best players in the region but has nothing around him. Battle and Marion will be working on year 2 with new coaches. Their season rides on can these young head coaches get their players and staff to buy into their philosophies now that they have a full off season to do so. 11-12 Lee and Lebanon I really do hope both programs can have more success next year and improve and add some more balance to the region over all but until I see it they will stay down here. side note Parents that think they know better than their kids coaches and have never played at the next level or coached above pee wee need to just try it one year and see how easy it is...
