From my ponderings of watching the last several Years EV teams and this one is no exception, it seem they are a bit schizophrenic at best, Game of Halves, or complete let downs on others, IE Toppenish game where earlier in the season they only won by 1, HUH -- For a State ranked team?
1st half of the Othello game they looked as if they were an 8th grade team with the Othello Big Two(Walker, Kirkwood) dominating boards, shots, and rebounds alike. Down by double digits in the first half. Out of sync, out of rhythm, Out of the game.
Offensive possessions by the EV point guards looking to the sidelines for plays for each and every individual offensive set. Which I found to be very odd, Yet-----
Then the second half they came alive doing what should have been done in the first, Question is why then when itís simply too late?
Iím no rocket scientist but if you have the big two from Othello dictating the game one would think special attention would be delivered by the EV coach to at least instruct his team to deny the Kirkwood girl the ball, YA THINK? Yet too little to late.
Then the next night EV plays my Quincy girls and dominates at then its all OK? PLAAEESSEEE
It seems the finality of the situation is this, what causes these huge emotional swings? Coach? Players? Or what goes on behind closed doors? Who knows?
I havenít a clue or do I care but as SCACFAN00 started this thread, there is something rotten here, and has been going down hill for several years.
In the past EV always cast the light of fear in opposing teams, realignment, or whatever the excuse is, they are not the power house they use to be, and with cycles of gifted athletes coming typically in every 2 to 3 years in programs, the cycle of mediocrity at EV is here to stay.
