This Week in Milford

Stat caring its a Milford thing

Filed under: actual action, basketball — robmize2013 @ 10:51 pm

More exciting hoops action against a familiar foe – Madison. 2 plays in an otherwise yawner of a conference game finds the Larks prevailing, and another player looking at the stat sheet in the locker room. I never played high school basketball, but I guarantee that not ONE player looks at a stat sheet in the locker room after the game. Sure as Columbus discovered America. And if someone else knows how many points said player scored, well, thats another pipe dream. Nobody gives a crap. They shower, check their Snapchat sites, and mosey on home or to the bus for the ride home. Kids know who’s good and who isnt. They dont need validation from a piece of paper.

  2. It’s high school basketball, even good guards don’t shoot like pros do, players at none of the positions generally do. I sat on the bench for a team that made the state final four in its (small school) division and our starting guards (both of whom played in college as walk-ons) didn’t shoot 50% for the season. Shooting 4-9 in a win was usually a fine enough game for either of them.

  3. Robmize, I agree. I played in many basketball leagues and the one thing that IMMEDIATELY separated the ones who were on the team in high school and the ones who weren’t is the latter normally made a beeline for the stat book. The HS ballers grabbed their gym bag and went. Team’s the thing.
    And Billy makes a great observation, 4-for-9 isn’t great but it’s not clunking the rim.

    But Thorpiverse has a way of making nothing out of the nothing. Good show, Coach.

  4. Madison wears lavender uniforms? Is that a first in the color version of this strip? Did they get the idea from K-State?
