Broadcast wrap-up: Central vs. South

I scooped up Tony Geer from to handle color commentary for the South-Central game; I haven't come across anyone that knew the game inside and out like he did. I learned a couple more things to use in future games, although this broadcast season is about to end.

Regarding the game, South pretty much did what they wanted to against Central. Tayler Hill could not be contained as she continues to make her case as the best player Minnesota has ever seen. She was an impressive 17-18 from the free throw line as South cruised to a 72-52 win. As a team, South thoroughly dominated Central, a clear indicator that this team is much stronger than a year ago. They aren't invincible with the loss to Hopkins, but they remind me of Central's team from last year. South has talented starters backed up by a solid bench.

Central is still a good team, but they have more weaknesses than they did a year ago. I've got a feeling with a likely Twin Cities rematch that Big Red isn't going anywhere.

Now if only I could get a down to the wire game before the season is out.

Next TV games:
Johnson vs. Humboldt (tentatively) @ Humboldt, February 12th, 7:00 P.M.

Twin Cities Championship Game @ St. Paul site (likely South vs. Central), February 23rd, 2:30 P.M.
