Don't you just love the H*LL out of it when a 2-3 team is in the TOP 5?????? Ha Ha Ha !! !! !!

Can we start calling this the "PREP PRICK"? 'Cause it's poking holes in basketball sanity, right?

Just wondering. Have you seen Bainbridge play? They are good. They'll win 20 games again.

Dang it! I gotta agree with the Sister on this one. How in the hell did that figure on that one? If Bainbridge that good bring them on to the Albany and let play Monroe, Albany or Westover. We'll see how good they are.
