It's that time of year when basketball is starting. Any thoughts on who will have the best teams in the Northern Region this year? I hear Herndon and Westfield will have good teams....anyone else?

Northern Region smart guy, take your private school education somewhere else where they don't require you to read headlines.

Not sure of who will win it, but the following teams won't be as good as they were last year simply because of graduation.

Edison - will still be fast and good on defense, but lost Murphy and will need to run a different offense.
McLean - will be god awful this year, no point scorers, no defense, I bet won't even make top 5 in their district.

Teams that I think will succeed

Fairfax - Burnett can take over any game and has the best shot IMHO in the region, pre-season prediction for POY, they return a good chunk of the final four team from last year
Langley - Good height and good system team, need a playmaker though since Dixon graduated.
South Lakes - system guys who started off rough last year but got better as the season progressed. Solid back court.
Westfield - lost big man in the middle so defense will go down, but their guard play returns which helped run their show most of the season.

Lake Braddock is young this year, but they could beat some good teams. Woodson should be good as usual since pretty much every player can shoot. TC is TC, so even if it's a down year for them, they'll still be good.

TC Williams, Herndon, and Woodson should be the class of the region.

I've seen a couple people mention South Lakes, but they'll struggle this year, lost 2 great players to graduation and the team is very undisciplined.

The second tier would include several Concorde schools: Westfield, Chantilly, Robinson. I also like South County, Edison, Fairfax, Madison and Hayfield. I do not think Langley has the power they've had in the past and this will be a down year for them.

Westfied, like their football team, will be better than people think. Many up and coming Sophomores and a transfer in that will see significant time and make a contribution.

They may be hurt by a deep post season run in football, as there are at least 2 or 3 key contributors (including 2 starters) on the football team. But, that certainly could be the case with other schools as well.

His junior teammate will certainly be D1 but his name slips my mind. Talentwise it's a low year for the region and the title is up for grabs.

Westfield will be good, but no where near last year when they had Elcano and Basil. The football team going to the region championship didn't hurt their season as they won the region championship. No way they have the talent to repeat this year theough, they're not getting by a TC Williams or Woodson. I think they'll finish 3rd or 4th in their very competitive district.

Should be a good season. I'm not sure if anyone besides Herndon or Woodson is automatically going to be a contender this year, and even Woodson's a little shakier as they did lose some senior leadership as well as their 6'6 center AJ Carr to transfer. But they will be able to shoot the crap out of the ball.

Anyone seen any scrimmages of interest? I know there are a bunch on Friday...

I think you'd have to assume that Fairfax is the clear favorite in the Liberty this year, with both Burnett and Robic returning.

Don't know about other teams. Langley always finds a way to be competitive. McLean has two OK players but nothing like the talent they had last year. South Lakes has no discipline, and the Madison coach is awful. Marshall should be much better this year. Jefferson had one good player last year and he's gone. Stone Bridge plays football.

Agreed on Marshall -- they're committed to their style of play and have shooters all over the floor. They're set up to be good for a few years with the talent up and down the program compared to the rest of the Liberty.

Last year was a great year for the district, with two teams reaching the Final Four....could be wide open this year after Fairfax. I can't even really name hardly any other players coming back in the Liberty once you get past those two. Who will be the rest of the impact players in the Liberty?

Fairfax has the best overall backcourt in the region. Robic and Burnett have been together forever. Can't forget about Collins, who is a savvy player with a high basketball IQ. This team makes up for their lack of height with their toughness and winning attitude. Expect a district title and another run to region final four from this team.

Westfield boasts a very good backcourt (Beckett, Hill, Mullins) and alot of guys who contributed to last years Northern Region Championship team. They will miss the big guy this year, but have a bunch of guys who can play.

Fairfan - have to agree with you. No one else in that district comes close to approximating their talent or experience in the backcourt, and Salim Collins is indeed underrated. The strength of their defense, however, was in the interior, so the guys coming up will have to replace guys like Kostadinov, Walsh, and Frank. I'm also hearing that the younger Frank had a pretty rough injury from football season and may miss some time.

Still, they should have enough firepower and be efficient enough offensively to be very strong, and they won't start off as slowly as they did last year.

Woodson has a lot of talent and usually underperforms. Fairfax has some talent, including one kid who really does not like to lose, and a big heart. In that match-up, I like Fairfax's chances.

That's true. I think they're going to miss Kris Kostadinov and Matt Frank and Kyle Walsh a little more than people realize. If Dan Frank is banged up, that makes it even tougher.

Still, I think they're the class of that district, which won't be nearly what it was last year.

Don't forget that W-L finished second in a decent National District last year and took Edison to double overtime on the road. Their junior big man, Jonah Sens, is a beast on the block and is slowly adding a perimeter game. They also have a very athletic backcourt that is dynamic on defense.

@ NR Fanatic it wasn't really free throws down the stretch. Wakefield's coaching allowed Fairfax to come back. It was a 10 point game the whole time, and with time winding down, Wakefield continued to play aggresive offensively when they should have played stall ball.

Went to the tip off at Woodson tonight. In the first game Robinson blew a huge lead and lost by 16 57-41. Wakefield is a beatable team. In the second game region favorite woodson played well against fairfax. Won by 9. Woodsons big four Stepka Bowles Murray and Hansler are matchup nightmares because each of them deserves to have the other teams best defender on them. Gonna be tough to beat this team. The refs had it out for Woodson tonight and that kept fairfax in the game other then that fairfax didn't belong on the court with them.

Fairfax kept it close against Woodson, Burnett actually hurt us more in the paint along with some timely threes, but even with a mediocre reffing job, Woodson looked like the better team. Yeah, Fairfax missed a lot of free throws, but because the guys getting fouls sucked at free throws, not like they choked. PVI might have killed us in the scrimmage in terms of the score, but we actually won at least one quarter because even PVI couldn't stop the barrage of threes. Once Boock is healthy, Woodson is a matchup nightmare. I think Stepka is around as good an outside shooter as Burnett (at least based on what I've seen so far) and can drive and finish, and Boock is around as good a pure shooter. Only a handful of teams in the region have guys who can really contain Boles, and he distributes off penetration extremely well. Stynchula and Murray can pound the boards and shoot threes. Hansler can drive and finish well, and he and Boles have great on-ball defense. Obviously, the team has weaknesses, the most obvious being height, among others, but I'm tired of seeing all this about Fairfax when Woodson is better, especially when they play to their potential, and has tougher opponents ahead, who I'll leave their own students/players to write about. Also, the stuff about Stynchula above is just from the Woodson players messing around, ignore it.

You see so much @ Fairfax City due to the fact that so many here are Gov't "employees" w/time on their hands to post ad nauseum - here & everywhere. FHS isn't a good (heck, marginal) school for most any activities, as it's a surprisingly insular place (culturally speaking). Either make it a "city" HS or fully integrate it into FCPS.

Sort of amusing to see someone from Woodson posting on Fairfax Underground about hearing too much about another school.

Fairfax will have a solid year in a relatively untested Liberty District and as of right now is still the favorite to win it. Woodson will be one of the best teams in the Patriot District and the Northern Region. It wouldn't surprise me if the two teams meet in Regional play again this year.

Maybe 1-4 now? Marshall beat Fairfax 53-52 tonight. But for Robic, it would have been a blow-out. Burnett was unimpressive and missed free throws in the last minutes that could have won the game for Fairfax. Marshall doesn't have great ball handlers, but they have a balanced offense and played tough defense.

Langley now looks like the team to beat this year in the Liberty.

Robic tweeted "can't believe we lost to those clowns" after Fairfax lost to 4-0 Marshall.

I'd say that Fairfax is overrated, but now everyone knows they suck this year. Someone should tell Robic his all-star buddy is obviously bored and the rest of the Fairfax squad couldn't beat a JV team.

Fairfax went down to Robinson last night behind Burnett's four point performance. Guess the real clowns are Robic's teammates.

If you think South Lakes is putting it together then you aren't paying attention. They lost to McLean and Langley this past week, and lost to a bad Osbourn Park team. They beat bad Centreville and Stone Bridge teams and lost to average Oakton.

Alum95 is right about one thing: Herndon is the most overrated team in the region. They will beat SL though.

Langley easily dominated South Lakes on Friday, improving their overall record to 5-0. They are now ranked no.15 in the state. The only other team in the top 20 from the Northen Region is T.C. Williams.

This should sum up how good SL is because McLean is terrible this year.

Actually, that list is outdated because it doesn't count Friday's games so you are incorrect

South Lakes has been beating themselves as of late. missed free throws and miss points around the basket. South Lakes is well coached. I think they shake off the rust on Tuesday.

That's the first time I have ever heard South Lakes and well coached in the same sentence. This year's team just isn't very good though, not really the coach's fault.

Herndon should take them. I like Langley over Westfield on Tuesday.

South Lakes has plenty of good coaches... Look at he Girls Basketball Coach. She does a great job! She's the hottest coach in the region too.

Track Team has dominated the Region for the last 15 years. plenty of good coaching going on in Reston

Westfield @ Langley
Herndon @ South Lakes

Should be two great games tonight.

Also Jefferson @ Fairfax, while Fairfax should take this one handily, this is a must win for them and TJ has been known to pull upsets.

Track & Field is an individual sport, the fact that SL always does well in it is exhibit A on why most varsity team sport coaches there are underacheiving. The school must get good atheletes to do well in track but the coaches that put those same atheletes on a field or court to try to acheive something as a team fail more often than not.

Langley convincingly took down Westfield. With their double digit wins over Woodson and Westfield, they have to be the team to beat this year. They are huge too.

Fairfax finally got back on the winning side over TJ. TJ was tied with them in the 4th quarter though.

Aside from Langley being 7-0, Chantilly is 8-0, having seen them both play though, it's not close and Langley is much better. Chantilly has had a considerably easier schedule. Marshall is undefeated too at 6-0, may have to make it out to a game to check them out, although their schedule has been far from daunting.

Marshall's biggest test of the season thus far comes tomorrow when they play an away game at Madison. I would not say that Madison is great this year, but Madison has one player (Murphy) who's considerably better than anyone on Marshall's squad.

If Marshall's "sixth man" group takes a page from the Oakton group, it will be enough of a distraction that Marshall will pull out a win...

What did Oakton 6th man do? Were they chanting about a past affair? Anyway, Oakton kids get a way with a lot of stuff at games. There is no way Marshall would be allowed to chant some of the stuff I've heard Oakton chant in the past.

That's what it sounded like, although I know no details. I was just there to watch a friend's son play.

Calling over to the coach, and then, "Was it worth it?, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap"

"Langley convincingly took down Westfield." Ummmm, I dont think so. NOthing against Langley, but there was nothing "convincing" about the win. This years Westfield team is not like last years, but put them on a neutral court and its anyone's game. Langley's coach acts like he is big time, pretty funny.

Oakton at home is an extremely difficult place to play. Their fan section is unbelievable, with its witty and loud chants its hard for any opposing team to focus. There fan section is led by some remarkable young men including Ricky Menendez, Daniel Mansfield, Jeremy Marshal, Wade Harris, and Jack Harris. There fans are more impressive than the team watch out for the cougars as there fans might win the the region

Marshall was down by 10 at halftime and came back to beat Madison 67-62. Not sure they could hold their own with Langley, but 7-0 is a nice start. There were enough Marshall fans there to neutralize the home court advantage.

Well, to start off, as Sgt.Grammar, it is not "there", but "their".

Even more importantly, if you are not affiliated with Oakton, as your user name suggests, how do you possibly know the names of five of the Oakton's "sixth man" crowd? I happen to know that you are correct as to at least two of them, so I am guessing that you are one of them as well.

Chantilly's Tournament: Mountain View defeated Robinson
Mountain View was not expected to win this. They upset the unbeaten host school then took out Robinson as an under dog too.

Westfield's Tournament: Battlefield defeated Westfield

Lake Braddock's Tournament: Hayfield defeated McLean

Falls Church's Tournament: TJ defeated Stuart
TJ got the winning tip in well after the buzzer sounded. The refs counted it. Kind of a shocker as Stuart was the rightful winner.

Amazing how they are going to be a northern region contender when they aren't even in the northern region.

Robic wasn't there, and Burnett isn't really a leader. They still have good shooting stretches, but they don't handle the ball well or play with any intensity this year.
