The kid can't play defense.

He has more heart than anyone. I played ball with him at the courts in London since he was in 5th grade. he would be there at all times. The coaches should give him a chance. I agree his defense could improve he has a killer shot

I agree, he does have that. Not common in kids today his work ethic. Video games and cell phones are kids thing now days while he is shooting ball.

He has a big heart and is a lights out shooter. Only problem is SL basketball will be the sanders and Baxter show this year. I'd love to see him play it's amazing watching him shoot the ball.

That is true Baxter will be the show the coach lets him shoot 30 shots a game and hit 3 and let's him continue shooting. Last year Lucas, Zack, Austin R. Would shoot and miss one shot they would get benched. Equality is what ball should be about. Not who you are.

Who you are pays for the program. But the best should play NO MATTER what. And Zack is a PURE shooter. I'd put him against anyone anywhere "shooting". I play with him at the First Babtist. Misses rarely

I've yet to understand why coach Davis lets Baxter shoot it 100 times a game. There was numerous times last season he would have 2 guys on him and jack up a terrible shot. Matt S has a good shot too, but I guess he's not Davis pet. I hope they have a good season I just don't think coach Davis is the man for the job. Blake S has wonderful ball handling skills and court vision but his shot is terrible. I watched teams play off him and dare him to shoot the 3 but rarely did he hit it.

Slavey can shoot at times. He is a streaky shooter BUT he needs to start for size, defense and second chance shots. When he misses he normally gets his own put back.

I agree that will be the thing that hurts them this year is not having any size. When Sears quit last year the size went out the window. Austin S has size but no hands and seems to have a hard time finishing around the basket.

You couldn't put it any better. When the senior group now was Freshman I thought they would be the last Championship team for a while. But 1 man ball changed it all. Baxter/sanders/slavey can't do it by theirselves. Only team ball is when Zack/Austin R. are in together. They seem to click. Like Sander/Slavey/Juice/Rader click.

The problem there is they are all seniors. And there will not be anything after them.

When those kids were in middle school they were pretty much unbeatable. It seems as they have got older the talent and team work just using there. Mitchell and Rader are both better football players. After this years senior class is gone the basketball team will be pretty weak. They have Trevor and Baxter then after that I can't name anyone else. Seems as though North's basketball team is on the rise they should be pretty good this year too. Just will be hard for them to follow up with another region title.

North might be tearin apart from "rumors" of the coaches only running stuff to the big men and no guards liking it. But if they can deal with it they will have a good team

Yeah I've heard they lost the Perkins kid. He would have been a key player. I've also heard south may lose a couple players to that they didn't like coach Davis very much. Rumors are just that rumors well find out soon enough

It's not exactly as if the talent level is dry. There is some talent in the middle school ranks, as one of the ms teams did quite well in Summer AAU ball. But the gap between the Senior class and the middle school is pretty bad, IMO. The rumors are definitely flying that a few guys may not return. I've heard guys like Rader, Juice, and Zach Allen are gone. I don't know any inside info on Coach Davis, other than he pushes the guys hard in practice. I think he's a decent bench coach, but has Zero respect from the area. The refs certainly don't respect him like they did Steve Wright, I seen Corbin and Tony P whine and foul like crazy, but never get the whistle. I don't know if it's because Davis is an outsider or what. In hindsight, Sizemore or Randy Vernon's kid would have been a better match. I think Davis will cut his teeth here, take his knocks and become a better coach at another school

The seniors now got screwed. Two coaches in four years and three if Davis doesn't stay this year.
But Jeff is rough on the kids even in games. He doesn't say a word to his stars I watched Jesse Sizemore yell at Baxter for a stupid play after stupid play and Davis went of on Sizemore for yelling at him. While Davis cusses Juice and Zack Jones out for one mess up. then benches them. Zack by far gets the worst end of it and doesn't say a word.

Let's just say that certain players are prima donnas and won't shy away from threatening to go to Corbin or another rival if they don't get preferential treatment

It would be too hard for anyone to move especially seniors. If they mess up they don't get to play again. Ever! Not high school ball that is. The systems cracked down on movers.

The KHSAA has cracked down on the school changes. As for the seniors this year I don't think they'll transfer would be dumb to. If they go to Corbin they'll ride the pine Corbin hates the laurel county kids.
