I always joke that whenever I go to a Churchill- Lombard game, somebody always says to me, "Coach, you have got to be excited about this group coming up." This year was no exception, I had three people say the exact version of this statement.
And I don't ever hesitate, "Yes, I am excited this group." That is why I am still coaching. It is easy to see the potential of the young players coming up.

Before I begin to give my thoughts, let me make one thing clear-- based on IHSA seeding guidelines, Geneseo should have been the #1 seed, so that is not the issue of my thoughts.
Back in the old days, each coach attended the seeding meeting and you had to sit across a table and give your seeds. So if you were going to seed a team low, you had to say in front of that schools coach. In the years this method was used, there would be some times when one coach would raise a question about another coach's seeds. And then a coach had to defend their seeding. At one particular seeding meeting, a Peoria coach verbally attacked a coach from the Mid-Illini for the coach's seeding. It was heated and it had some profanity in it.

|Annawan girls' basketball coach Jason Burkiewicz has been suspended until Monday.|
The district announced the suspension after an investigation that was publicly released on Tuesday afternoon. Burkiewicz's suspension stems from comments that appeared on Twitter last week.

GALESBURG — The Galesburg High School girls basketball team cruised to a 70-31 victory over Quincy on Thursday night in Western Big 6 Conference action at John Thiel Gymnasium.
The Silver Streaks (15-11, 3-4) were never challenged by the Blue Devils (0-16, 0-7) in the contest.
“An unusual situation. Quincy is obviously down,” said Galesburg coach Evan Massey, who is now three wins away from the 800th of his career.
“I thought we fouled a little too much but that’s being picky. We were aggressive defensively — got a lot of steals. I thought we did a nice job moving the ball against the zone, so we got open shots inside.”
Moline's 'Coach K' gets win in Ford's WB6 absence

|MOLINE — Russ Kooken was OK with his Moline girls' basketball varsity head-coaching debut only lasting 70 minutes.|
He was OK with the game-changing basket being a third-quarter, buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Lily Eastman that he ordered, even though it caromed way too high off of the backboard before somehow settling into the cylinder.
And he is definitely OK with going back to being coach Steve Ford's right-hand man, with Ford sitting out Thursday's 36-30 win over Alleman at Wharton Field House after getting two technical fouls for an ejection in the Maroons' game last weekend at Rockford Boylan.
1- Morton 21-3
2- Washington 17-2
3- Richwoods 15-6
4- Limestone 14-7
5- Notre Dame 11-13
It should be noted in their meeting earlier in the year that Washington beat Morton. They play this Saturday.
1. Annawan (16-4)
2. Sherrard (21-2)
3. Muscatine (15-2
4. Prophetstown (21-2)
5. Rock Island (15-6)
6. Moline (14-9)
7. Assumption (11-6)
8. North Scott (11-5)
9. United Township (14-7)
10. Stark County (17-5)
11 (tie). Burlington Notre Dame (15-1)
11 (tie). Mediapolis (15-1)
13. Rockridge (16-7)
14. Sterling (14-8)
15. Alleman (11-14)
16. Erie (15-8)
17 (tie). Camache (10-4)
17 (tie). Monmouth-Roseville (14-10)
17 (tie). Pleasant Valley (10-7)
It should be noted that #9 UTHS has beaten both Moline and Rock Island. UT and Rocky face off this Thursday. Sterling, who we beat by 20 in early January clocks in at #14.
