Loyola is victorious over Naperville Central, 311-206.
Auburn defeats Hinsdale Central, 457-135.

In Class A:
Latin over Macomb, 289-151
Peoria Christian beats Columbia, 200-138
Warrensburg-Latham beats Morrison, 205-87
Litchfield over Altamont, 189-101.


I'd say based on the first round scores that Latin is clearly better than the field in Class A.
In Class AA, based on the first round, it's gonna be a close one between Auburn & Stevenson. If Loyola tips Carbondale, it'll be an upset; not a huge one, but an upset nonetheless.

Don't be surprised if Round 2 changes those concepts. Just as round 2 at Sectionals is the "fluky" round, Round 2 at State has a minor history of confusing results. At the very least, scores drop noticeably in the second round and games are much closer. This isn't to say watch for more upsets in round 2, just that the score differentials will likely not be so dramatic.

Auburn has clinched a spot in the State Finals after 2 games. Stevenson vs. Hinsdale for the berth in the 3rd place game.
Carbondale v. Loyola - winner in the Championship, loser in the 3rd place game.

Latin has clinched a spot in the State Finals after 2 games. Peoria Christian vs. Macomb for the berth in the 3rd place game.
Latham v. Litchfield - winner in the Championship, loser in the 3rd place game.

Man, these lunchtime results used to be more exciting. Remember 2007, when in the Auburn/WN/Carbondale/Bloomington pool, everyone was 1-1? Good times...

Brad is absolutely correct. As tournaments go, this was boring, though perhaps that was good.

I picked every game, except the final (which I didn't pick). Everything went according to chalk.

This was a rare year in which I saw two Class A matches. They were low scoring .... quite a few tossups went dead, but most of the low scoring was attributed to 0/20, and 5/20.

The Carbondale/Auburn match almost made up for it. It was a classic match. Siva got Zenger on "This german". Tremendous! I think I had Auburn down for three amazing early buzzes, and Carbondale for two. I think the lead changed hands a total of four times, and it was close all the way to the end. Both teams represented tremendously. I was happy for Carbondale, and felt equally bad for Auburn.

The only thing I gotta say, and I am saying this strictly as a neutral observer: The boisterous applause after many of the bonuses (or good buzzes) began to be a little much. Had a faster moderator been reading, it would have drown out the next question. That's just one opinion.

I enjoyed state much more than last year, personally. I also saw many tossups go dead and all teams probably could have done better in Class A, but Litchfield got their first state placing, and we were very much excited about that. Although, I do believe there should be some sort of limit on the volume of a team during a match. We were playing a team today, who, on the bonuses, would be very loud when discussing their bonuses (purposely as they made it very obvious), and this was quite a distraction. Now I realize this was their intention, but it is rather rude and obnoxious, although they are a very smart team. Of course when we began to pull ahead, for a short while, their volume increased as our points increased.:/ I just hope IHSA is able to do something about this. But then again, who sets the bar of "loud"?

Yeah, what else would O'brien's The Things They Carried be? Sure it's recent, but it is still a good well written collection of short stories/ a good short story itself.

Well, I guess the real issue is that the question read:

What do you know about "The Things They Carried"?
1. Name the author.
2. What river did the protagonist go visit an old man at?
3. What war did it take place during?
4. What "something obscure and hard that I couldn't remember, even though I've read it"?

I read "The Things They Carried" in a college freshman into to fiction class. That was not a good way to write a question on it though.

If you want to write on contemporary American literature, those questions have to be written better i.e. less transparent and obvious clues. My one concern about writing about that at the high school level would be the level of familiarity that your average high school player would have with O'Brien, DeLillio, TC Boyle to name a few. Those simply aren't taught that frequently in the classroom - then again contemporary American lit isn't taught unless the author is a woman or minority.

And there still is, unless Ian and I are gravely mistaken, no daughter.
