2018 PACE NSC - June 2nd & 3rd in Reston, VA

Post by L-Town Expatriate » Sat Jun 02, 2018 11:12 am

Jeff didn't get this thread started before leaving for DC, so I'll go ahead and get this going. Missouri has two teams in the 96-team field: Ladue A and Ladue B. This morning, A is in Pool Duhon, B in Pool Balkman.

As of the time of this post, Ladue A is en route to winning their pool following early wins over DCC C (MI) and a tight victory over Richard Montgomery (MD). Ladue B is 1-4.

Ladue A went 7-0 in their prelim pool to ensure a spot in the top 28. They won their first two playoff games before dropping the next three to go 2-3 in the afternoon, finishing fourth in their afternoon pool. That means they'll be playing for 9th-16th place tomorrow. Still waiting for the official schedule, but I believe they will be carrying over their 560-230 loss to DCC A (MI) and playing Plano West (TX), Montgomery Blair A (MD), Thomas Jefferson B (VA), Richard Montgomery A (MD), LASA A (TX), and Battle Ground Academy (TN).

Ladue B went 2-5 in the morning to advance to the 49th-72nd place tier. They went 1-4 and finished sixth in their afternoon pool, advancing them to play for 69th-72nd tomorrow against Naperville Central (IL), Thomas Jefferson D (VA), and Northmont (OH).

Individually, Akshay was the top scorer from Missouri at #27 overall with 75.71 ppg, with Raj not too far behind at t-33 with 67.14 ppg.
