This is one of the rare times where I'll do a post exclusively on the girls game, but that's how the schedule works. A quiet day on the schedule with MLK day. I would have been better off staying home and watching the NBA tripleheader instead of the PACT at MCA girls game. After a close 5-4 start, MCA runs off 26 of the next 28 before a PACT bucket at the end of the half to lead 31-8 at halftime. More of the same in the 2nd half as MCA rolls. Most noteworthy item of the night was Onye Osemenam for MCA. She's a 6'0 7th grader who's playing JV and will probably step in next year and replace star Jenna Higgins in the middle. Already she's an accomplished shot blocker and has nice footwork for such a young player. She even appears to be taller than 6'0 and she certainly plays bigger than that.
So as I watching this blowout, I got to thinking about the blowout in the girls game I saw last Friday. I had no idea coming into the game about either the MTS or SB girls. Come to find out that MTS was 7-5 coming in and SB was 3-11. After the game, I thought that maybe Oh Day Aki (I saw them get blown out by the Roosevelt JVs) vs MTS would be a competitve play-in game in the Girls bracket. Upon further review, they play next Wednesday and they played December 4th at MTS. MTS won that game 82-8. That floored me, I'm not surprised MTS won, but that big was very surprising.
