Has Huntington been tested?

As the boys basketball brackets came out today,it became fairly obvious that District 1-5A wasn't much of a threat for the Huntington Raiders.

Yes, Huntington is the No. 1 seed. But the only other 1-5A teams in the playoffs are No. 20 seed Southwood and No. 31 seed Byrd.

That's hardly being pressed in the district race.

Hopefully for Huntington's sake, the Raiders won't need that toughening up that comes from playing in a brutal district. But there's always the possibility of playing in that close after having not been challenged for two months and having things go wrong. And then a weak district could hurt a team with title aspirations.

According to the schedule, Huntington has played other teams outside of their district and state including tournaments in which they were victorious. Give them a break.

One only needs to look as far as the LSU football team to see the value of a tough, battle-tested regular season. As having grown up in Bossier City, I always wish our area teams well.
