Kimberly girls get the two seed.........ha ha haha
But actually are you kidding me?
So I don't follow girls basketball that closely, but I looked this up after seeing these posts, and really really really not seeing the outrage here.
Both they and Sheboygan North are undefeated, and it's not like 1 v 2 really matters when the game is going to be at Preble anyway
Even though the Kimberly/FVA people were out-numbered at the seeding meeting by the FRCC folks, I think they got it right. It's all subjective and will be settled on the court. However, IMO, the FRCC is a much tougher conference this season with the likes of Sheboygan North, DePere, Green Bay Notre Dame and Green Bay Southwest than is the FVA. Sheboygan North defeated all of its FRCC foes this season including DePere twice. In all fairness, Kimberly played the tougher non-conf schedule and prevailed over Pius XI by 5 pts and over Oak Creek by 1 pt in double-overtime at home. Let's see if Kimberly (probably at home) can defeat DePere to advance to a possible sectional semi-final vs Sheboygan North on a neutral court.
While #1 vs #2 would be on a neural court, the #1 seed has the benefit of avoiding perennial power De Pere until the finals, which in my opinion is enough to make "it matter." Regardless of whether Green Bay Southwest finishes ahead of or tied with De Pere in the FRCC standings, De Pere is a team that has the tournament experience, which in my opinion is valuable this time of year.
As far as "Kimberly/FVA people," it's more like person, as Kimberly was on an island (only FVA team) at the meeting which made the voting very predictable. Now if the rolls were reversed and it was 8 FVA teams and Sheboygan North in a nine team Regional, I'd be willing to bet that Kimberly would have gotten the #1 seed and Sheboygan North the #2 seed. It's just the nature of the beast at the seeding meetings.
Lastly, as far as it being subjective, Kimberly and Sheboygan North met on the court around this same time last year. Both teams are made up of virtually the same key players, and Kimberly was able to win on Sheboygan North's home court 28-25, holding the Wolf twins to a combined seven points. While one may think the FRCC is the stronger league, the FVA actually holds a 6-5 advantage this season in head-to-head match-ups.
While the seeding makes for good discussion, there is the potential for some GREAT match-ups next week, and that is a win-win for all basketball fans!!! Best of luck to all teams!!
