All right, we’ll be at the halfway point after tonight, and the matchups are only going to get better as the week progresses. What’s in store for tonight? Take a look
No. 8 Fayette (G) vs. No. 5 Sacred Heart (4:30 p.m. tip-off): Based on last night’s outcomes, Fayette will play three teams this week they haven’t seen previously this season. I remember two years ago when Fayette played Slater five times in one season. Some fresh faces are in store for the Lady Falcons this evening. Prediction: Sacred Heart 46, Fayette 30.
No. 8 Fayette (B) vs. No. 4 Pilot Grove (6 p.m. tip-off): If Pilot Grove shoots lights out, this game could get out of hand in a hurry. The Falcons just need a good performance tonight, and if they reach 50 points, I’ll consider that a good performance. Prediction: Pilot Grove 69, Fayette 51.
No. 4 Slater (G) vs. No. 1 Glasgow (7:30 p.m. tip-off): These two teams met back in December, in the third-place game of the Glasgow Tournament. From what I remember, that wasn’t one of Glasgow’s better games. Now playing on Slater’s home floor, the Lady Jackets will need one of their better games. Prediction: Glasgow 57, Slater 47.
No. 5 Glasgow (B) vs. No. 1 Sacred Heart (9 p.m. tip-off): This is the most talented Sacred Heart team I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Gremlins start the season 29-0 before meeting West Platte in the Class 2 state quarterfinals. On the other hand, don’t be surprised if Glasgow finds a way to play Sacred Heart close in this contest. Prediction: Sacred Heart 66, Glasgow 46.
