  • You can only schedule those schools if they are willing to schedule you. With class basketball there really isn't a reason for the bigger schools to put a smaller school on the schedule these days.

    Bloomfield has 2 4A schools, 6 3A schools, 5 2A schools and 7 1A schools on their schedule (excluding tournament games), so it's not like they are only playing 1A schools.

    They never scheduled both Terre Haute schools or both Bloomington schools in the same season before class basketball. They did pick up games against Terre Haute South & Bloomington North in the 2000's when THN & BHSS dropped BHS from their schedule. The only bigger school from the pre-class schedules that isn't on the current schedule is Bedford North Lawrence.

    One big change is pulling out of the WVC in favor of the GCI. I know that they got tired of playing some of the County schools in the WVC, but at least they had the chance to go against some bigger schools in that tournament. You can't say the same for the GCI with Linton and Eastern being the biggest schools in that tournament.

    Unless you get some teams from Evansville on your schedule there really aren't a lot of teams in southern Indiana that can mimic the quickness & athletic ability you find on the teams from the Indianapolis area.

    I know it isn't sexy or fun to watch, but in those tournament situations there was a reason Coach McBride implemented his stall-ball tactic. When you are outclassed athletically you really need to value the ball and work to get the best shot possible.
