Hoop Scoop and Armstrong Update for Osseo Game

December 20, 2013
Robbinsdale Armstrong Basketball



Click here to upload tonight's hoop scoop for the Osseo Game.

 

Falcons vs. Osseo Orioles

Dec. 20, 2013

 

Tonight’s Opponent:  Osseo is led by senior division I college players, Ian Theisen (South Dakota State), Wheeler Baker (Albany) and Jordan Dembley (undecided).  They are a long, physical team that pounds the ball inside and plays tough defense.

 

Tonight’s Coach:  Coach Theisen is entering his 12th year as the head Coach of the Osseo Orioles. He currently has a career record of 261-70. His Teams have won the 2012 State Championship, 7 NWSC titles, 4 Region 5AAAA Championships, and his teams have been to the State Championship game two other times (2003 & 2009). He has been honored as Region 5AAAA Coach of the year in 2003, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012.

 

Tonight’s Game:  Osseo, #6 AAAA (MN Basketball News Ranking) will try to use their height and strength to overpower the Falcons.  Armstrong, #7 AAAA (MN Basketball News Ranking) will try to use its speed to run and create scoring opportunities.  It should be a fun game.

 

History with Osseo:  Armstrong and Osseo have been playing against each other for decades, but have been re-united (they used to be in the Lake North together) in the same conference only 3 years ago.  Osseo is 6-0 during that time.  Prior to that, the Falcons beat Osseo in the section semi-final game in 2004 and the section finals in 2007 on their road to state tournament appearances.

 

Falcon Update:  Win loss records for our teams: 9B 3-2, 9A is 4-1, 10 4-1, JV 3-2, Varsity 5-1. Combined record 19-7.  The varsity had a big win over #9 ranked Roseville in the Minnesota Breakdown tournament on Saturday 83-71. The Falcons went 5-0 at Centennial on Tuesday, as all 5 levels of play were victorious. 

 

Alumni Tournament:  We will hold our 5th annual alumni tournament on Sunday, Dec. 22 from 1:00-5:00 in the Armstrong gyms.  Check out Facebook at Armstrong Basketball Alumni Club for information.   We currently have 8 teams entered in the tournament.

 

Season Outlook:  We are off to a good start, but realize it is early in the season and we must improve to compete with the best teams in our conference and section.  Tonight will be a good test to see where we are at in comparison to the elite teams like Osseo.

 

Next Games:  We play in the Edina tournament next week (Thursday, Dec. 27, 6:00 PM vs. St. Thomas Academy, and Friday, Dec. 28 TBD).  We also play at Coon Rapids on Friday, Jan. 3rd.

 

Practice Over Winter Break:  We practice on the following days from noon-2:00 PM (Dec. 26, 30, 31, and Jan. 2).  We have 5 days away from basketball (Dec. 21-25), though varsity has strength training tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM.
