A short schedule on tap for Tuesday with one girls game and a quartet of boys games on the courts and no conference matchups
The most intriguing game of the night is likely to be the cross conference matchup between Morley Stanwood and the Lions of Newaygo.
The Lions seem to have hit their stride peeling off 6 wins in a row since dropping a pair of close ones to Fremont and BR. This is a solid team with a number of weapons and a strong bench. When teams try to shut down the Long sisters,Frisbie and Goodin and Reuhmeier can step it up on the offensive end and the defense is formidable.
But the ‘Hawks have been on a tear as well. They ran odd 8 in a row to start the season before being taken apart by the force of nature known as the Eagles of Kent City. Since then they have dismantled the teams on their schedule by an average of over 30 points.
Both teams have huge games on Friday as MS will get their rematch with the Eagles at home and the Lions get their second chance against conference co-leader Big Rapids also at home.
Should be a good one tonight.
Fremont at Kent City
The Eagles have beaten upon some teams as they have taken their customary spot atop the Silver but they haven’t played a team like the Packers since taking a pair of losses during a holiday tournament. There are two issues here though. Fremont hasn’t beaten a team with a winning record in a month and have shown some vulnerability dropping 3 of their last 4.
And the Eagles play real well at home with a crowd that rivals the Packer home fans.
The Pack should prevail but if they do, it won’t be a cakewalk.
Lee at White Cloud
The White Cloud boys have a chance to even their mark with a home win over Wyoming Lee. The Rebels haven’t won since just after Christmas and while the Cloud has been inconsistent at times they have the talent to capture this one and should come away with win number 7
Tri County atHolton
The Red Devils are wanting to put an end to a 2 game losing streak and this is a good chance to build some confidence as they head forward and look toward tournament time.
Mason County Central at Hesperia
The Panther are improving but they simply don’t score enough to stay with opponents,. Remember, last year's squad didn’t win a game until the tournament when they won twice before falling to the eventual district champs.
