Q&A: Rick Rasmussen

After another region win against the Rams on Friday, Tucker currently sits atop the region 2-AAAAAA standings, as Newton (16-5, 3-4 Region 2-AAAAAA) ranks fourth in the region behind Rockdale (15-6, 5-2 Region 2-AAAAAA) and Lovejoy (4-10, 3-3 Region 2-AAAAAA). However, this game was much different than the last, a 67-42 thrashing in early December, without center usual starting center Josh Tukes.

Lady Rams region REIGN won’t stop

Newton (12-4, 4-0 Region 2-AAAAAA) came into Friday's battle with Rockdale (6-8, 1-3 Region 2-AAAAAA) looking down at the Lady Bulldogs from high atop the Region 2-AAAAAA standings.

Cause for concern?

For the first time this season, Newton (13-3, 1-3 Region 2-AAAAAA) lost its second-straight game. The fact that this is the first time they've lost consecutive games all season is a remarkable feat, but is this a trend for the Rams or just a blip in the radar?

Newton’s FAB FIVE

Normally when a coach starts three or more freshman its by default and that team is probably in for a long season filled with a lot of mistakes. Newton's girls basketball team starts three freshmen, but is off to an 8-2 start this season and they'll only get better with time.

Newton takes FIRST

Newton had put up a good fight. They were in it with Tucker the entire game, but the defending state champion Lady Tigers had taken a six point lead with just a couple of minutes remaining in the contest. To lose by a few points to a team that won a state championship last year would be an honorable moral victory. But the Lady Rams didn't want a moral victory. They wanted to make a statement.
