Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking


RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

@ bballfan4life it seems like we never stay on the subject when we get up here. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who knows that Hicks is an awesome player! An,I second everything that you said, but, I'm still perplexed as to why SE Raleigh can't get an invite, and they are a local team.

RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

I can't even begin to answer that question. One thing I've heard is that the selection process is very biased. I'm not sure of who actually chooses the teams, but they get it wrong every year. I appreciate that they included Myers Park and Dudley- solid teams that are not in the Raleigh area. But, they didn't even invite Millbrook OR Southeast? To me, if you invite the powerhouses, you would make more money!! Isn't that what it's really about anyway??!! (note the sarcasm) If I coached at Millbrook or Southeast, I would decline the invitation, even if they asked me. They're better off going somewhere else!!

RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

I am pretty sure Millbrook girls were invited but declined -- they preferred to go the Upward Classic in South Carolina.

It would have been good to include Southeast, but other than that it was a good tournament with talent across the board.

RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

I agree that there should be a better tournament that showcases GIRLS Basketball. We have tons of talent in our backyard and not one team gets recognition. Millbrook has made history with First, winning a championship. Second, having 8 senior players commit to play college basketball. That is major, and they deserve resepect. SE Raleigh is solid and very talented. Their starting five is amazing and they bring "it" every night!! I played basketball in this area years ago, and it needs to go back to the old Glaxo Reynolds days. The girls and guys played together and everyone saw everyone. Games should be very interesting after tournament play. We will see who comes out on top this year.....

RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH BBALLFAN4LIFE. ALEXIS HICK IS THE TRUTH. I DONT THINK SE HAS WHAT WILL BE NEEDED TO GO THE DISTANCE, BUT THEY WILL DEFINITELY GIVE A GOOD SHOW WHILE THEY TRY TO MAKE A RUN FOR THE STATE TITLE.

RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

Do you have to be a host site to get in the tournament. Cary Academy gets in and the only had one talented basketball player. Will the host and get in again next season? I vote clayton to be a host site....lol...they have two division recruits on their team and they are only sophomores with one already having a Division I offer and interest from App. St., Xavier, Oklahoma State, Richmond, Maryland, Washington State, ECU and the post with interest from ECU, Michigan State, Louisville, Penn State, VCU, South Carolina and Clemson. Also Riverside has a kid with a couple of offers as a sophomore those teams should receive consideration if that is part of the criteria.

test

RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

SE Raleigh played in the Glaxo 2 years ago. Lost to Millbrook.

RE: Glaxo Girls Tourney Lacking

Yeah, I heard the only reason they got in that year is because Green Hope backed out and went to SC. Does anyone know how many times they've actually been invited? Just curious???
