Parity is defined as the state or condition of being equal.

That describes the current situation of the boys 10-A Division I’s basketball district perfectly.

Through two weeks, eight of the 12 games have been decided by four points or less and the average margin of victory is 5.17 points.

Friday’s district games provided the most drama yet. Windthorst edged Electra on the road 54-50 and that was the widest of finishes.

Olney’s Cooper Pulliam drilled a 3-pointer at the buzzer to clip Archer City 46-45, while Petrolia edged Seymour 49-48 in overtime on a late free throw.

Home court hasn’t seemed to matter in this district, either. Teams are 4-8 playing in their own gym.

“It’s the wildest district I’ve ever seen,” said Olney coach Carl Pennington, whose team needed Pulliam’s dagger to avoid blowing a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter. “It’s pretty fun but stressful.”

The Trojans may be the biggest surprise heading into Tuesday night’s halfway point. The last time Windthorst made the playoffs was in 2006-07 when there was a four-team tie for third place and the Trojans won the two-day tiebreaker.

First-year coach Joe Rackley said the Trojans have picked up his system quicker than expected and that they’re more of an outside-in team than previously. Chandler King, Brady Berend, Zack George and sophomore Logan Veitenheimer have played important roles during a 3-1 district start.

“I think it’s been a pretty good shock to everybody what kind of basketball team we’ve had this year,” Rackley said. “They’ve had some offensive-line type kids in the past and looked like a football team. We step out there and look like a basketball team.”

“They’ve had some young kids make progress and I was really impressed with how well they shot the ball from the perimeter,” said Seymour coach John Anderson, whose team lost 56-48 to the Trojans last week.

No one’s going to confuse any 10-A squad as a state title contender. Archer City has the best record at 12-7 and Olney is the only other team above .500 at 10-9.

Anderson, who’s in his final year as head coach because he is now the elementary school principal, thought that a record of 8-2 or 7-3 would win the district before the season began. The first two weeks haven’t changed his mind.

Even though the Panthers, a perennial playoff team, are 1-3, they aren’t out of the mix yet. With only two games separating the leaders from those in last place, no one is.

“If you can string three or four wins together, you’re right back in the mix and that includes a district championship,” Anderson said. “In some previous years, 1-3 was a death sentence, but that’s not the case this year.”

This is a flaw w girls too. It's amazing makes me want to hurl. If more boys wld spend more time practicing these instead of tying to touch the rim it sure wld help out.

Updated again. Looks like none of the teams changed positions, just the field is a little wider.

I went 3-0 this week, so now that brings my picks to 4-2 or 4 for 6.
No upsets this week WindthorstDad, unless you consider Petrolia loosing to Windy...hehe

Lol, not quite. Good job on the picks. Looks like Archer City's last second 3-pointer saved you on that pick. :-)

We travel to Olney looking to make up for our earlier loss. This is a fun district to watch.

That's twice in a row now that Archer City has won/loss due to a last second shot...

You are spot on about the district being fun to watch.

I am missing the 4th game linescores to check free throw numbers - I'll have to check Saturday's paper as the linescores are not online. Pretty interesting numbers to say the least.

Total Free Throws taken (4 games)
Olney 97
Windthorst 70
Electra 50
Seymour 42
Petrolia 39
Archer City 37

Total Free Throws against (4 games)
Archer City 30
Electra 42
Windthorst 44
Olney 50
Seymour 71
Petrolia 98

Difference between taken and against
Olney 47
Windthorst 26
Electra 8
Archer City 7
Seymour -29
Petrolia -59

I'm pretty sure when I add the week I am missing the difference between taken and against will match the district standings as we shot over 20 FT against Electra.

In Olney's lone loss they were outscored 10-12 on the free throw line as Seymour hit 12 of 20, while Olney only made 10 of 23.
Windthorst loss to Olney they only got to the line 3 times while Olney went 12, outscoring the Trojans 8-2 from the charity line in an 8 point win.

Not surprising at all to me. Many games are won/loss at the free throw line. If kids today would work more on free throws in practice, instead of throwing up 3s left and right and seeing who can touch the rim, then they'd be much more successful come game time.

We had what I will call a sub-par night on the free-throw line for our boys last night but still shot 55% which was good enough to win the game eventually by 11. Kids need to work on free throws, both at practice and especially in shoot around before the game. Thing I've noticed is in the past we had one kid shooting free throws in shoot around but this year we have over half the team working on free throws prior to the game. It has made a difference in our season!

Great article by Zach Duncan on parity in district 10-A this season. I like that Coach Rackley says we've been an outside-in team this year as in the past Windthorst has not always had the good perimeter shooting we are experiencing this season. Trailed the first three quarters last night, then the Trojans changed it up and started feeding the post who used their size advantage over Petrolia to put the ball in the hoop. Nice balance on this year's team.

Most "good" basketball teams shoot around a minimum of 70-72% from the free throw line. This seems to be a lost art. Sad in the sense that it will win your many ball games.

Aces - should be a battle of two very good point guards when Archer City plays Petrolia tomorrow. Would love to see that match-up.

Believe it or not, both are Freshman about 5'9". Archer City has Case Caldwell who is a very fast lefty who likes to drive it to the bucket but is also proficient at hitting 3-pointers as well. He is also a decent defensive player.

Petrolia has Dane Williams (Petrolia HC's son). He is leading the district at 20 ppg and will drive the lane but is better at 3-point shooting. He hits them from 4 feet behind the line. His drives are difficult to defend since he has a tremendous vertical and can shoot over taller players guarding him. He made a couple shots over my son (6'2") with no problems. His defense is not special but his vertical allows him to be an effective re-bounder.

Should be fun watching these two the next few years.

District 10A-Div 1 will have some important games tonight. The top two, Windthorst and Olney, play each other and will remain the top two no matter the outcome (both have victories over AC). An Olney victory would lengthen their lead while a Trojan victory would mean Windthorst would sit in 1st place alone for the first time in quite a while. Archer City can distance themselves from the field by taking sole possession of 3rd place with a victory tonight. Seymour, Electra and Petrolia all need wins to climb back into the playoff picture.

Should be fun to see how it all shakes out after tonight's games. Good luck to all!

Should be a very fun night...Any one of these games can go either way, but i guess all the games are like that now lol.
My picks:
Electra over Seymour
Archer over Petrolia
Windthorst over Olney

My breakdown of the game for first:
Windthorst wins if:
Continues to make free throws
Olney wins if:
They can out rebound Windthorst
I picked Winthorst because if both of these happen, I believe the free throws will be the difference...

TwoMarkshand - I agree with your picks and definitely your breakdown. Of course, Olney also shoots free-throws well so hopefully the get called for more fouls than we do tonight.

Our Trojans didn't finish Friday night and ended up with another loss to Olney. I think if they treated every game like a rivalry game (like we were playing AC) then we might be undefeated in district at this point. For some reason we don't get up for the Olney games. A district title is still possible, but we need help from someone else to knock off the Cubs and then we need to win the remainder of our games.

As my friend WindthorstFan would say: "One game at a time"! Archer City is up next.

Updated for post game 6, again no changing of the guard but still close as ever.

This Windthorst and Archer game coming up should be a great one to watch.

It's possible all three teams (Archer City, Petrolia, and Seymour) tie at 6-4. The key game most likely will be the Week 10 Petrolia-Seymour, which Petrolia won 25-22 in the first match-up. A Seymour win could make all three teams 6-4. However, a win against Windthorst by AC or Seymour would help solidify a playoff spot. Electra has been up(lost to AC by 3 @ AC by outscoring them 11-4 in the 4th) and down (how do you explain losing Olney), but could throw a wrench into the playoffs if anyone is caught looking past them.

Olney outscored us 16-7 from FT line.

Although they participate in football, Olney is pretty much a "basketball" school. Looking at their football roster on Maxpreps and Times Record News, only 2 of the 8 that scored Friday night against us were on their FB roster. Neither of their leading scorers were on the roster.

Unless we lay an egg, I don't see our girls losing a district game. I'll pick AC for second and Ptown as third. Should be down to the wire and very interesting.

Exactly! Our proven methods have been to drive it inside, draw fouls and make our free-throws. We did not drive enough to draw fouls. Our 3-pointers were not falling which meant we should have fed the post and left them draw fouls, but we failed to do this as well. Kind of like a boxer who has a mean left hook but never throws it - geez. Got to go with what makes you successful.

Olney played well enough to win and we did not!

Huge games tonight in District 10 Div 1 both boys and girls. On the girls side, I don't see any change in the standings unless Archer City can pull the upset at Windthorst. I predict victories tonight for Windthorst, Petrolia and Seymour on the girls games.

Boys side of the slate is a bit unpredictable and some upsets are possible. Windthorst is coming off a tough second loss to Olney while Archer City drilled Petrolia last Friday. Archer City is primed to take an upset but I'm predicting the Windthorst defense, at home, steps up and takes a second, hard-fought, victory over the Wildcats tonight. Seymour and Petrolia face must-win games if they wish to have a chance at making the playoffs. Seymour has the lone victory over the Cubs but I'm predicting Olney defeats Seymour and ends the Panther's playoff chances. Petrolia has been up and down but can score; however, I'm taking Electra, at home, in a close game thus ending the Pirate's playoff chances. My prediction of boys standing after tonight are:

Olney 6-1
Windthorst 5-2
Archer City 4-3
Electra 4-3
Petrolia 1-6
Seymour 1-6

Good luck tonight!

I wouldn't disagree with your take on the games...should be a very, very exciting night of games.

However, my picks are a little different,
I'm going with the tough pick of Archer City over Winthorst due to the way each team played last week.
Also Olney over Seymour, Olney is playing good ball and unless they don't mess around they will win.
And Petrolia over Electra, I bet Petrolia catches Electra sleeping and pulls the upset.

I just realized I haven't picked against Archer City yet, which is weird but I guess that just goes to show how evenly matched this district is. Whoever has the ball last controls the outcome of all these games.

Petrolia has shown they don't play defense and when things start going against them - they quit. Archer came into the previous Windthorst game with a big win over Petrolia and Windthorst came in with an 8 point loss to Olney - not much different than the previous match-up. Windthorst must get to the free throw line.

Archer City turned the pressure up in the 2nd quarter and Windthorst wilted, giving up 9 point lead. Nip and tuck the rest of the way. Trojanettes had chances but could not get the shots to fall. AC played outstanding defense after the 1st. Trojanettes didn't help themselves going 10-29 from the free throw line, Archer missed their share as well but hit them when they needed them.

I think in the 2nd qtr we had more turnovers than points.

Archer City .4 21 36 47
Windthorst 13 21 35 42

Archer City 13 21 31 47
Windthorst 14 30 47 63
FT (A) 13-20 (W) 24-34

We were perfect from line 9-9 in the first half, second missed about 5-6 out of probably 15-20. Zach George was probably close to a triple double, I know he had the points, probably close on rebounds, and had a heck of game passing the ball to cutters and open shooters. Thought we did a good job on AC's leading scorer. The ball wasn't dropping for him and finished with about 14 after lighting up Petrolia for 32. Great defense by Logan to not allow him a good look.

Both games were boxing matches!!! I think we had 3 girls foul out and another with 4 fouls when the game, Archer's best player fouled out (not a very smart play - under AC's basket with 4 fouls) - Knobloch came up huge at the end of the game. Ultimately AC made the plays at the end of the game and we did not.

I'm having a hard time trying to remember a Windthorst vs Archer City contest (any sport) that wasn't physical. I just think these two teams really get up for each other and play hard.

Coaches told the Trojans at the beginning of the season they would need six district wins to make the playoffs. They posted a calendar in the locker room and put a check mark on each win. They are one win away from that goal and will have all their attention focused on Seymour come Friday night.
