  1. I hear Timkin played Northland tough in their rematch on Saturday. I also heard that Rakim "Rock" Read had a big game.

  2. It was a very close game until JD weatherspoon decided to show up and play in the second half Rob. It was a great high school game, but they had no answer for the Big Smooth and Spoon. And what can you say about Trey, I love that kid more and more everytime I see him play. Timkein is a very strong team, they just happen to be in the same gym that night with the #1 team in the Nation.
