Popscout Game Recaps: Newton Rams vs Fayette County

3 Quarters of highlights between The Lady Rams and Fayette County.  Game played November 14, 2019 @ Newton High School in Covington, GA.  Great venue for some hoops and a very good amount of basketball junkies in the stands.  The Lady Rams miss too many easy layups and should spend some time in practice, working on finishing their layups with both hand.  Missing cheap shots just might come back to bite them down the road.  Being that it’s just the second game of the season, we’ll give you guys a pass.  Lol.

Mountain View comes up a bit short

It came down to execution at the end of the day family.  Mountain View (GA) took the L, 67-65 during the 2019 North Georgia HS Showcase presented by Adrian Penland basketball November 09, 2019 @ Buford Arena in Buford, GA.  We love the communication between coach B.J. Roy and his squad, as he allows his players to give feedback when most coaches are just focused on themselves and can’t develop that type of closeness with their players.  The game is much more than step backs, wet balls, and shimmy’s.  The ability to develop a working relationship with your coach is extremely important.  Although MV came up short, it was a beautiful sight to see: A coach showing the ability and wherewithal to communicate with his team during huddles, timeouts, and game play.  Kudos coach Roy.

Inside the huddle footage of Dawson County (GA) vs Mountain View (GA) as DC executes down the stretch during the 2019 North Georgia HS Showcase played November 09, 2019.  X’s and O’s at the end of the day you feel me.  We spotlight 5’10 2021 PG Mason Barnes who can shake and bake with the best of them. We like the head on this kids’ shoulders.

Draw something up coach!! Special Thanks to Adrian Penland Basketball and North Georgia Report along with host Buford High.

GISA MS Hoops: LCA vs Athens Christian School

Don’t put too much emphasis on this game family, it’s just the first of the season.  For those who didn’t see a lot of playing time, don’t hang your head and show a lot of negative body language towards your team and coach.  Do the opposite! Cheer for your team, high five as they come off the court, start a defensive chant during the game, and sit at the beginning of the bench.  You have to spend hours building a relationship with the game of basketball. Practice and games won’t be enough to become special.

Set up a homework schedule for yourself, similar to the one you have in the classroom, and watch your development grow.

What’s on Tap? 2019 Hawks-Naismith Tip-Off Classic

Hawks-Naismith Tip-Off Classic
Location: Pace Academy
966 West Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30327
Dates: November 15th and 16th, 2019

Gearing up for an exciting weekend of basketball in the State of GA as the 2019-20 season gets underway.  Pace Academy is the place to be, giving us a glimpse of who’s been in the lab sharpening up their skillsets.  Have you faced those demons head-on and begun to address your weaknesses?  Or will you continue to show cracks in your game that’ll allow your opponents to capitalize on your inability to get it done?

The consensus #1 Player in the State of GA (7’0 C Walker Kessler / UNC) will be on hand along with many others who’ll be showing that they too deserve braggings rights.  Popscout will be in the building as we branch out from the West Coast to see if the ‘Dirty South’ has what it takes to become special.  The Classic will experiment with a 30-second shot clock.  Something new in the State of GA.   It should be interesting to see which players and coaches can make the adjustments, pull a few rabbits from their hat, and in the process gain a few braggings rights.

Players to watch:

Woodward 7’0 Center Walker Kessler (North Carolina)
St. Francis guard Dwon Odom (Xavier)
East Coweta guard Brandon Stroud (Kennesaw State)
Mount Bethel Christian forward Jordan Meka (Georgia Tech)
Heritage-Newnan center Ebenezer Dowuona (N.C. State)  & Guard Kasen Jennings (Kennesaw State).

2019 MLB World Series: Game 7 should be special

Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon was 3-4, driving in 5 RBIs during their 7-2 victory over the Astros October 29, 2019. The best of seven series is tied 3-3. National fans are hoping Anthony has one more all-star performance left in his tank. Image by Popscout.

It’s been a magical season for the Washington Nationals.

The Nationals brought the wood in Game 6 while relying on the arm of former #1 pick Steven Strasburg to keep the bats of the Astros relatively quiet. Choosing the middle innings to flex their muscle, like a world-class fighter whose been feeling out his opponent, The Nationals, facing elimination, were able to secure a 7-2 ‘dub’ over the Houston Astros Tuesday, October 29, 2019, tying the series 3-3.  Washington third baseman Anthony Rendon was hotter than fish grease, going 3 for 4 at the plate and driving in 5 ribbies.  Nats starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg came away with another 2019 MLB post-season victory, going 8 and a third-inning, giving up only 2 earned runs while striking out 7.  He’s 5-0 during 2019 MLB Postseason play family.  With that being said, Game 7 is slated for tonight, October 30, 2019.  Both teams are hoping for that one shining moment, becoming special at the highest of the highest level. Good luck to both dug-outs.  No matter who wins, we appreciate your commitment to excellence.

 National fans are hoping the bat of LF Juan Soto will be the difference-maker in Game 7 of the 2019 MLB World Series played tonight, October 30, 2019. 1st pitch is 5:08pm PST. Image by Popscout.

City Section Spotlight: Birmingham Patriots

Who: Birmingham Patriots
Division: LA City Section
2018-19 Record: 17-13 (7-0 West Valley League Champions)
Key Players: 2021 David Elliot, 2021 Corey Cofield

The Birmingham Patriots were on fire Sunday, October 27, 2019, defeating West Ranch 90-61 during a host of exhibition games at Sierra Canyon High School.  It’s always a pleasure to see LA City Section teams on point against Southern Section opponents.  Birmingham Head Coach Nicholas Halic appears to be set for another magical run. Working the sidelines like it’s a league game, constantly holding his players accountable for their actions.   Emerging Jr. CG David Elliott scored 20, while Jr. SF Corey Cofield chipped in 18.  The Birmingham bench was deep, yet another indication that a program is on stable footing.   Having won the 2016-17 CIF LA City Section Open Division ‘Ship, I’m sure the Patriots would love to see more hardware added to their trophy case this season.  Keep an eye out on the Patriots.  They’re poised to make a serious run.
