    Also congrats to Jared Hendryx, Tyrone Outlaw and Ricky Council for making the NCBCA 1st team for district 6. Job well done guys. And thanks for an exciting PAC 6 season.

    Well said Talentscout.....right till the end, the refusal to recognize Jordan's talent and record just makes me smh. There is no way that Hillside shud be ranked higher than Jordan anywhere. Oh well.

    Really?? what a joke!! Hillside #4? lmfao! They beat Jordan on their fourth try and they rocket to number 4? Use your brain people. Jordan 9??? you guys are really clueless when it comes to understanding basketball and talent. To pick Jordan at 9th is to say that one game made or broke their season when it came to ranking. The incompetence is disturbing. Millbrook above jordan?? What is wrong with you???? Leesville Road over Jordan??? Gawd!! this is a joke.
    ra
    Sorry if this is more direct than your used to but I guess it doesn't really matter, this final joke ranking anyway.


    Anyone with half a brain would put Chapel hill 4th, jordan 5th and Hillside 6th.

    Here is the full poll:

    1. J.F. Webb (27-5)
    2. Broughton (27-6)
    3. Clayton (28-3) 4. Hillside (21-8) 5. Apex (20-10) 6. Leesville Road (19-9) 7. Millbrook (17-11) 8. Chapel Hill (24-5) 9. Jordan (23-5) 10. Garner (22-5)

    Was just talking to Assistant Coach Mayo of the boy's basketball program at HHS..... In their bracket he's squaring off against some of his Bull City Select players. First round was Dave Robertson and Grant Rasmussen, 2nd Round was Will Weeks, Jared Hendryx, John Brown and this evening will be James Hemphill of Broughton who got past TJ Evans who also played with Select last season. Speaks volumes of Bull City Select who collaborate top student-athletes (basketball) of Raleigh/Durham area while developing, progressing their skill sets and also helping them generate exposure in front of colleges/universities. If I'm not mistake Trevion Thompson (ATH) of football and basketball program at HHS also played with them last season.

    Much success to HHS as they take on Broughton.... Durham vs. Raleigh! Respect to both programs. They both have great basketball history and tradition!

    It is hard mentally to prepare to beat a team you have dominated in 3 previous outings. Any team with the least bit of heart will be giving their all in the fourth meeting or else why even show up? The team that has won the 3 previous has to fight off the mental images of the 3 wins and approach the game as they would ANY other game. That is easier said than done. Is Hillside a better team than Jordan? No way, not even close. However they played well during a short spert, late in the game and took advantage of the Jordan mistakes. They won fair and square and have earned the right to move on to the regionals. It's not always the best team that wins, but it usually is the best team that night, that wins, and that night when the horn sounded Hillside played the best to win.

    I didn't think about that but that is a good point. In the 4th q Hillside ran the floor with about a 10-0 run to seal the game. It looked like Jordan legs were in quicksand. Literally standing room only! Good job by the Hornets. It really hard to beat a team 4x's

    The Herald Sun is not Jordan's own newspaper. They do a great job covering all the schools. People upset over positioning in a paper...

    I expect a better game from the Hornets on Friday. Jordan has had their number all year. Will Hillside get over the hump? Or, will Jordan run them out the gym two Fridays in a row? Looking forward to a great game and packed house!

  • Getitouttahere Feb 28, 2013

    Great points all around. Jordan has to come out with fire in the belly. I feel that they came out flat against PC the other night because they underestimated the team. MC proved to be a great opponent and made the falcons dig deep and allowed for other players, Weeks, Thompson and Brown to fill the gap. I think that's what has made this team so good this year. This team is not dependent on just one or two players. It's truly a TEAM. @shootn4thestars....you are right all the pressure is on Jordan. All players need to step up and play and the Falcons will win. Good luck to both teams. Durham is well represented. Go Falcons!!!

  • shootn4thestars Feb 28, 2013

    @ talentscout---I am supporting Jordan because I have grown to become a fan of a great team that has been disrespected in their own newspaper and city. I hope they win, but it will be a tougher task than you think. You have to keep the kids from being overconfident or cocky because they have beated a team 3x. Personally I would rather be the team that has lost 3x. You have no pressure and you are expected to lose. After all that if Jordan play like what I saw in the PAC-6 Tourney! We will see them in Fayeetville.

    So proud of Team Jordan. Great team effort. Bring on Hillside! @Talentscout. I totally agree with what your are saying.

    "If one team beats another team 3 times than the teams are not equal, one team is better than the other."

    Let's go Jordan Falcons!

  • Talentscout Feb 28, 2013

    I don't understand when people say it will be "really" hard to beat a team 4 times?? That is just not a true statement. If one team beats another team 3 times than the teams are not equal, one team is better than the other. Sweeps happen in sports all the time, as do upsets. However, if you were a fan which team would you rather be, the team that lost 3 times or the team the won 3 times?

    Make no mistake, Middle Creek is a very good basketball team. This game could have gone either way. Jordan is also a VERY GOOD basketball team and every game it seems someone different steps up to help them win. Last night, #3 Weeks was a difference maker along with late game defense by #25 Brown. #11 Lee was solid as he usually is. #33 Hendryks and #15 Alston and #5 Ortiz had off nights IMO because of the large presence inside of Middle Creek. That's okay, it happens and #23 Reese and #00 Thompson brought great contributions off their bench along with the play of Weeks, Lee, and Brown to help make up for that. As the paper said it was an excellent TEAM win.

  • shootn4thestars Feb 28, 2013

    that's a very impressive win by Hillside. It's going to be really hard to beat a team 4 times.

  • kmagnusson Feb 28, 2013

    As a MC fan I wanted to go to the game last night but had to work. It sounds like I missed a good one. Fred has been swatting basketballs all season but MC has also been extremely careless with the basketball all season too. It sounds like turnovers did them in again. It is very frustrating to watch bad passing on a consistent basis. But they always played hard. Congratulations to Jordan High.

  • gmanj Feb 28, 2013

    Hillside harassed Green Hope early and flustered their shooters who made 1 3 all night - perhaps 1-10. Dave Roberstson missed 3s that are usually layups but again, I think he got flustered early and out of rhythm. Good job.

  • CoachK2 Feb 28, 2013

    HHS and Jordan.... Survive and advance to play each other again in the most important game of the year....... Correct me if I'm wrong!

  • shootn4thestars Feb 26, 2013
    Towel Boy

    If Hillside beats Green Hope I would be very impressed,but I think Green Hope will beat them by at least 10. After Hillside lose who will the Hillside-Sun talk about then. I actually agree with sweetnsour the most disappointing team in the area is Roxboro Person. I guess everybody figured out the Outlaw can only dribble one way.

  • gmanj Feb 26, 2013

    It should be good. I will be there.

    The key for GHHS however is John Mosser who has been unstoppable lately. Only 6-5 but he has a Kevin Love style game that is hard to stop because he can beat you so many ways. GH has no other real inside threat so he has to play well and stay out of foul trouble.

  • CoachK2 Feb 26, 2013

    Hillside and Green Hope will be an exciting game! Wish I could be in attendance as Coach Mayo faces off with his boys of HHS against two of his young boys from the Spring/Summer AAU Circuit with Bull City Select who play their school ball at Green Hope HS. The young boys I speak of are Dave Robertson and Grant Rassmussen..... He's coached those two guys on the AAU Circuit since they were rising 9th graders out of Davis Drive Middle (Grant) and Apex Middle (Dave). To see their progression & development over the past few years at Panther Creek/Green Hope has been a pleasant experience. Someone (HHS or Green Hope) has to go home!

    Dave Robertson is a UNC-Asheville recruit and Grant is a Queens College recruit where he'll be lacing 'em up with PAC-6 POY and fellow Bull City Select teammate Jared Hendryx of Jordan High. Together Dave and Grant form one of the best backcourts in the state.

    Again, this should be an exciting game! Good luck to both teams.... That they get through the game injury-free and leave it all on the floor.

    Good job Hornets and Falcons for moving on in the States! Round two is only tougher.

    Wonder what happened with Person down the stretch? Out in the 1st round of PAC-6 tourney and States?

  • Talentscout Feb 26, 2013

    Jordan came out flat and they looked nervous but they kept it together and pulled out a victory over a very active Panther Creek Team. The Munoz kid from PC played great. He literally left everything he had on the court. If Jordan can learn anything from this game it would be to mimic this young player's effort. He has HEART! Hopefully it was just playoff jitters and now they can get back to doing what got them to this point.

    Congrats to the PAC 6 Champions Jordan Falcons on their tournament win over the Hillsiide Hornets 67-49. Who said that it's hard to beat a team 3 times? Falcons made it look easy tonight. Congrats to the Difference Maker Jared Hendryx on his Co-POTY honor. Even though he should have owned that one alone. Also big congrats to Coach Annas on Coach of the Year. Falcons did the dang thang! Good luck in the States.

    Council will find a way to play college ball, he has 4 stars.
    If he is ineligible, there are prepschools and juco. His caliber is that good! This forum is too big for PAC 6, personally i like Cap 8 and Tri- 9 basketball better, its more exciting.

    Uninformed assertions regarding coverage are ridiculous. There is a such thing as budgets and staffing that play a huge part in this equation. @Talentscout, maybe you need to start your own website, then you can cover the PAC-6 or any other conference that you feel is not getting enough coverage.

    Many of us who have been around awhile have watched this concept go from a paragraph or two into a full-fledged website. Capital Broadcasting Company, WRAL, and Nick Stevens want HighSchoolOT to be an effective brand. I am sure people were similarly critical of Football Friday at its inception, but some 30 years later it is still standing.

    Nick will be the first to tell you that he would love to cover every conference but at this stage in highschoolot's development, that is a true challenge. As budgets and staffing increase, this website will be the go to source for all of the high school athletic information in our area.

    Maybe it would be cool to develop a high school sports wiki with the other newspapers and websites that cover high school sports in our area. A button that says "Part of the HighSchoolOT Network" could be placed on their websites and this may help with some of the other coverage across the state.

    Don't just talk about what doesn't work, give suggestions that may help make the whole better.

    @shoot4 I didn't know you can tell someone's gender by a screen name nor did I know that only males could make comments on this forum. Perhaps you should not ASSume so much...

    @Basketballmom-From the NCHSAA website, it depends on when Council turns 19. If it's before August 31st, then he will not be eligible. If it is after August 31st, he will be able to play.

  • ballingdays Feb 18, 2013

    @Basketballmom
    Having been involved in Middle School Basketball in Durham, I remember Council not be eligible to play his 8th grade year at Chewning due to his age. We can only assume that this will catch up to him in High School. It should be interesting.

    You cant be serious? Well said??? lol. Free or not, if you are going to call yourself HIGH SCHOOL OT, then you should cover ALL the High schools in your area. If you are not going to be comprehensive then change your name to WAKE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL OT. My Assertions are very accurate and based on fact and not opinion. The replies from Shoot, sweet, and gman, make no logical sense. Of course its a lot of work, but the body of work speaks for itself and there is no question the PAC 6 gets second billing to the Wake County Schools. Sorry if you can't handle the truth based on facts.

    @ sweetnsour (which no man should call himself) If I read his post correctly he is upset with the HSOT about the coverage of the entire PAC-6. I really don't agree with his statement because I know that HSOT is really a Raliegh based website that is free. They actually cover the conference more than The Hillside Sun newspaper. I am satisfied with HSOT great job!

    Since this is a PAC 6 forum, I thought this was the appropriate place to mention that High School OT likes to show 2- 3 minute highlights of ANY CAP 8 or Tri-9 game that they covered and when they finally show a PAC 6 game (Jordan vs Hillside) they show 46 SECONDS. REALLY? 46 seconds of one of the top 3 games in the conference? Not very professional and a poor decision. That decision combined with Nick Stevens Walk out on the roundtable discussion (not sure if he was trying to be funny, but it came across as childish and oversensitive) the disrespect for this conference is appalling. Not one mention this morning here on the team that goes 12-0 in their conference, which is a very tough conference as we all know,.... well all of us except Mr. Sensitive. You would think a better decision would be to man up and say that you have not given the conference its due and promise to do better versus some childish walk out on a video forum.

  • Getitouttahere Feb 15, 2013
    Towel Boy

    Yes big ups to the Falcons on a 12-0 conference season. I heard that this had not been accomplished since 1984 or something like that. In other words its been a long time since a team went undefeated in the Pac 6. @talent..just wanted to provide a little correction, it's Hendryx. Like your first and second team lineups though.

  • Talentscout Feb 14, 2013
    Rookie

    Congrats to Jordan going 12-0 in the conference. I think that is a first for any team in the PAC-6.

    So thoughts on all conference and POY. Here is what I think

    First Team
    Hendryks-Jordan
    Council-Northern
    Outlaw-Person
    Lee-Jordan
    Best-ECH

    Second Team
    Barkley -Northern, Robinson -Hillside, Ortiz-Jordan, Hamilton -Southern, kithcart - Riverside.

    POY: Gotta go to the man in the middle on the Perfect Team - Hendryks. Close call with Outlaw but to be conference player I think you have to be a difference make and that has been Hendryks. Outlaw and Council are very good players and not taking anything away from them at all. 12-0 gotta go with Hendryks.

  • Getitouttahere Feb 14, 2013

    @Youngbuck I have to agree with you on your POTY callout. #33 Hendryx is the big in the middle. He is the difference maker.

  • tballnhard Feb 14, 2013

    Northern has alot of Talent they just need more time to develop. There are a lot of new talent. I heard that Aaron Bumphus had transferred to Northern, but wasn't excepted on the Varsity team because of the late transfer. However, I do not think JV won one game. Am not sure about the program at NHS. Both kids was Coached by Lockamy at DSA. But NHS varsity coach Russell has his team for next year pretty much selected only two seniors are leaving next year. I wish there was more schools that offered opportunities for talents to get recognized.

    I have attended 4 JHS games this season and all of those games were won by about 7 or less points. The team is very unselfish and I haven't seen them get rattled. Their role players play their roles to the T and it look like they like playing with each other. I think that is a sign of a good coach and GREAT team chemistry. Their coach should get COY and the big kid in the middle should get POY. He was the difference in every game I watched, whether it was blocking shots, finishing plays with dunks, or getting huge rebounds down the stretch. Congrats JHS

    Can't wait for the conference tournament and playoffs!!!!!
