BPC/Spoon River Tip Off Classic

Post by Vikingfan05 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 9:57 am

A little over a week away from tournaments starting and was curious who all was on both sides of the bracket and if anyone had seen a schedule yet? It looks like Stark County is a new addition to the Bushnell side and scheduled to play West Hancock that Monday the 20th however I haven't seen the rest of the schedule. Tournament runs through Saturday of that week so I imagine they'll be at least one cross over game for the championship session.

Kind of unfortunate there are two JV teams in this tournament as Galesburg JV is also one of the teams and doesn't look like any crossover games with Fulton Co tourney teams which is a bummer.

I'll admit I don't know much about Stark County and I know West Prairie was pretty weak last year but I would think the favorites would either be BPC or West Hancock. West Hancock only lost one starter from last year's 24-6 team that won this tournament but I also know BPC returns their best player and a few others so they should be really solid as well. Canton JV and Galesburg JV teams will be interesting to see.

West Hancock and BPC look to be on a predicted collision course for the championship game Saturday night as both teams are 3-0 with games to be played Friday and Saturday.

The last two games West Hancock has beaten Galesburg JV 70-44 and Canton JV 70-33, still to play West Prairie on Friday before finishing out the tournament Saturday. I'm hoping next year BPC can get two varsity teams to replace Canton and Galesburg JV squads.

Couple scores from last night:

Stark County over Galesburg JV by around 11 from what I heard.

West Hancock 57
West Prairie 24

Drake Hammel led the Titans with 20pts.

BPC 80
Canton JV 33

Championship game is set between West Hancock and BPC. Last year West Hancock won a thriller in OT after hitting the go ahead bucket with just a few seconds left. Should be a good game again tonight between the two teams.

Thrilling finish to the tournament as West Hancock rallies late after being up by double digits most of the game to win it on a buzzer beater bank in three by sophomore Drake Hammel 44-43 over BPC. Hammel also led the Titans with 20 points.
