and yes their only loss was to BHS but it was the night after their HOMECOMING
and south looked awful
how can you say they would be in the ship if they were on opposite sides of the bracket
i do agree bhs vs chs was best game of tourney by far
So they were able to beat Century after Homecoming, but not BHS even though the games were played on the same day? Doesn't make much sense to me, if you are going to use that argument.
Plus, having seen the games, BHS didn't play most of their best players in the second half and still won.
It isn't fair to use that game as a measuring stick, but the way BHS played in the tournament, I think South would have struggled to beat them.
It's also fair to say Century didn't get a fair shake at South in the Championship. South had two cake-walk games where they got to rest mentally and physically. Both games were blow-outs. Century had to come from behind twice. Once against an underdog home team with a huge home crowd, and once against their biggest rivals in the penultimate game of the season.
That is the draw of the tournament and I understand that, but South wasn't as dominant as their record makes them out to be. The top three teams in the state were very close, and on any given day I think one of the teams would be better than the other two.
