Morton vs Richwoods

Post by Pittstop » Sun Feb 18, 2018 2:14 pm

We are possibly one game away for the #1 vs #2 teams in 3A to play each other. Hopefully, this matchup happens. Let's use this post to discuss your opinion of this game. My opinion is that this game should be played at the Renaissance Center to accommodate the many people who would like to attend. It's been referred to as the State Championship game.

Truthfully I feel like Morton is going to win by 15+. I hope I'm wrong, but I feel like it is about to happen.

This will be a close game through out. Winner wins by 7 or 8 points. I give the edge to Morton simply because of experience but I don't think they are a lock. I do think it is sad that this caliber of game has to happen this early but you have to beat the best to be the best!
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline when you're not yet a winner.

My feelings were Morton +12. They beat Morton early, really early, in the season. Morton has just gotten better & better & better. Also, no way in he!! I can bet against a Bob Becker coached team this time of the year. The guy is the best coach in the area, regardless of sport, boys or girls.

I guess it just depends. If it is fast paced I feel like Morton has more weapons to make you pay. They will find three's against Richwoods' 2-3 and each player is willing to drive a gap. If both teams wear the clock down I could see it being kind of close but I'd still take Morton.

I feel Morton is playing at the top of their game right now. Coach Becker seems to have the girls playing their best at this time of year. I think their experience at this level of play will be to Morton's advantage. I also believe they have more depth than Richwoods. Lady Potters by 13.

Should be a great game with a packed house in Dunlap.

Morton held without a basket for the entire 3rd quarter. Not shocked that Richwoods in winning but that they are doing it in this fashion!

I guess the 15 point prediction was off by 5....and for the wrong team. Congrats to Coach Hursey!

Ok ok..Richwoods apparently has another gear!! Morton had an off night shooting even though the Knights made it very tough for them to find good shots. Congrats to the Knights!
