    Great game between two pretty good teams. Just curious as to why it would be called an “upset.”

      Warren,
      McDowell is a Class AAAA team that was averaging about 70 points per game at 5-0 coming in. McDowell has a new coach and a new system and was red-hot to start the season. Warren is AAA and hadn’t beaten McDowell in almost a decade. I’d classify that as an upset lol.

      Thanks,
      Tom

      Warren,
      Also, the way the students celebrated by rushing the court, I think they felt it was an upset as well.

      Thanks,

    Who would you say is the favorite in AAA boys this year?

      Warren Fan,
      I’d say General McLane, Warren and Hickory are the front runners right now. Meadville without Foster is still in the hunt and Strong Vincent is kind of a wild card right now. SV always gets better as the season goes on but do they have enough to contend this year?

      It wouldn’t shock me to see a GM-Warren rematch or any combination of matchups between GM, Warren and Hickory.

      Thanks,
      Tom

    Tom,
    Warren people actually like the underdog role. Not pointing a finger at you, but we generally do not get a lot of respect out here in the wilderness. I believe most people in the gym that night expected Warren to win a very close game. The Dragons had also played well and can score a lot of points. While the coach and system may be new at McDowell, I believe Warren had great success against him in his prior location. The Warren student section is the best in D-10 and its reaction was typical. We all invite you to get out of the big city for a night and come to Warren for a game. I get the feeling you have a passion for high school sports. If that is true, then you’d really enjoy an evening in Warren.

      Warren,
      I like your post but I’m confused a little bit. You guys love the underdog role but expected to win? lol Anyway, I love the Flannel Panel – for the most part – and I’d love to see them matched up with Prep’s student section in a playoff basketball game. Maybe one day they’ll be in the same class AAA or AAAA. I think those are the two loudest student sections I’ve seen in the past few years. I love the Warren fanbase’s passion but I’ve also dealt with some less than cordial Warren fans this year lol. Either way, it’s a great fanbase and maybe one day I can make it out there for a game. I’d actually love to see the GM-Warren region boys game there this year.

      Thanks,
      Tom
