East Troy exposes Big Foot’s weakness
Lake Geneva - 116-40. The East Troy boys basketball team, which is ranked No. 4 in the state in Division 3, put a whooping on Big Foot in Walworth in a Rock Valley Conference regular season tilt. Big Foot wrestling coach Craig Utesch mentioned the basketball game when I asked him about how his team was doing so far at the meet. Utesch said the basketball game was an outrage, insinuating East Troy ran up the score by leaving in its starters and full-court pressing in the fourth quarter.Collins said the Trojans were up by 78 points in the fourth quarter and continued to full-court press.
Also, they played their starters until two minutes left in the game despite taking a 50-point lead at the half. At one point in the third quarter, Collins yelled at East Troy coach Darryl Rayfield and said, “What are you doing?” Collins said fans were stunned and couldn’t believe what they were seeing.“We play a rotation of five or six kids,” Rayfield said. “We are not blessed with depth. At some point, our guys have to play a full game. I need our guys to be tested with fatigue and play a full game at a high pace. I couldn’t hold back. It doesn’t get us where we need to be.”
And Big Foot’s weakness is apparently basketball. How can Big Foot complain about this without realizing they had it coming? I can’t figure out how losing a hoops game 116-40 is any different at all than losing a football game 40-0. Which is exactly what the Big Foot football team did to East Troy just a few short months ago. And Wissports.net tells me one of Big Foot’s star players scored two TD’s in the 4th quarter. Payback is a bitch, yo. Deal with it. So now there is outrage pouring out from the parents, and even the Big Foot wrestling coach. What the hell does the wrestling coach have to say about a basketball game? Where I come from, the wrestlers don’t venture on to basketball courts and the b-ballers don’t friggin wrestle. We respect each other that way. So in a wrestling meet, you take it easy on weaker opposing teams? I don’t get this wussyness that is surrounding us. Unreal. –CCWriter
