It's still 1A Baskeball. The level of play is still way below that of most of
the tournaments. With the exception of one or two teams these games are still
being played at a sub-par level. 1A does have it's share of "Nail
Bitters" but the caliber of players is very low. You don't see anyone being
shuffled of to a D-I school, or really even being looked at for a D-II or JC.
I agree with @SCW and coach555, ICS has been under the radar all season and
definitely underated, the victory over a tough Tabiona team demonstrated the
heart and determination of this TEAM. Can't wait for the game tonight, GO
Lions. Also, while attending the tournament here in Richfield, it has been
very interesting to hear all the talk around town concerning the relative
worthiness of some of the teams in the Bracket. When was the last time no
region 20 team was in the final 4?
This was a very underrated game yesterday. ICS came in against a tough Region 16
team and proved they truly do belong among the top 5 teams in 1A.Early in
the game, it looked like Tabiona would run away with the victory, but ICS
adjusted, abandoned their zone, and pulled out the win. I agree with @SCW; you
can not take this team lightly.
I can see that they have their favorites, but if you dont like it turn the
volume off or dont watch it, if you complain too much they might not offer it to
us, either that or go do it yourself
Not all of the announcers.
The "MySportsGuys" announcers all have biases toward the public
schools. Just listen to them, it's beyond belief sometimes.
No one has given ICS much credit all year. They battle hard and play as a team.
They may not win state this year, but I would warn all teams facing them to not
take them lightly.
"MySportsGuys" had it wrong last night when they said that there was a
"controversial" first game with ICS playing Dugway in the first
round....ICS proved that they belong and they are now in the top four.
