Agree, and I was also surprised (not that bob jenkins was selected, but that this was his first selection).

Wait? I think that I'm forgetting something ... I got it ... Always listen to bob.

Congrats Bob!

Congrats Bob!
What does "downstate" mean? I first hear this jargon on some basketball special on TV on Sunday afternoon - I think it was Sunday - that was a docudrama about a boys high school team. Maybe some place called "Orr Academy". Not sure. But, the coach and his staff kept talking about "downstate".

"Downstate" means for most people in northern Illinois that they are in the state finals, which is often held in Central Illinois. Basketball they play the Girl's Tournament in Normal, Illinois (Illinois State Campus). And the Boy's Tournament Finals are played in Peoria, Illinois (Bradley University Campus). Both tournaments used to be played in Champaign, Illinois (University of Illinois Campus).

It is just another way of saying they are at that level of the IHSA Tournament. It is mostly those in Chicago and the suburbs that say this term. Yes, some people in the other parts of the state might use this, but if you are in Central Illinois already, you likely would not reference the State Finals this way for the most obvious reasons. Also, most of the state's population is from the northern part of the state. Actually the term kind of pisses off those in other parts of the state sometimes, but they will just have to get over it. BTW, I am originally from Central Illinois. I grew up in Macomb, Illinois originally before coming to the Chicago suburbs in 1999 and I lived an hour from Peoria and about 2 hours from Bloomington/Normal area. We just called it the "State Finals" or "Going to State."

Peace

For those that care. Bob is working the 3A title game right now.

Btw, it is on NBC Sports Chicago. It might be on the alternative version. I am in the arena so I do not know for sure.

Peace

Actually I felt overall they did a very good job. There are a couple mechanical things but not much of anything. I would have to watch the game completely over.

I was in the arena so a different perspective.

Peace

Allegedly here -- but I can't get it to work on this computer (settings or browser issue, likely)

Yeah it's here:

https://shar.es/1LvQ2I

Richwoods vs Nazareth Academy


Man it started off with a bang!

1Q
7:11 tough play in post, defender goes down seemingly easy
6:04 travel call going away from Lead official
5:57 some dead ball pushing not addressed by the Slot, also the Lead official stood waaaaay too close to the inbounder, effectively cutting off her throw-in angle
5:52 reach-in foul and subsequent technical when girls get tangled up and one pushes away
5:13 foul on what looks like blocked shot
4:07 bob, think about going low underneath the matchup there, better angle on the shot contact and better weakside rebounding position IMO

And that's just the first half of the first quarter.

Bob what did you think about the tech and the stuff I mentioned above?
