GREG'S PICKS: Mustangs, Pirates are putting together nice seasons

Rivals to square off tonight

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Floyd Central (4-15) at Brownstown Central (17-1), 7:30 p.m.

• Rankings: Brownstown Central — Class 3A No. 4 AP; receiving votes IBCA.

• Series last 15 years: Brownstown 2-0.

• Last year: Brownstown Central 63, at Floyd Central 62.

• Analysis: On paper, this looks like a mismatch. It isn’t. Floyd will keep it close and has a small shot at pulling an upset. If this was in the Knobs, I may have had the courage to take the Highlanders.

• Greg’s Pick: Brownstown Central 59, Floyd Central 50.

GIRLS’ PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Ashley Johnson, New Washington

Johnson led the Mustangs with 16 points in their big 56-43 sectional-opening win over Borden. She followed that up with a game-high 23 points in Saturday’s 69-39 New Washington Sectional championship game. She also finished with eight points in a half in Friday’s 73-20 win over Rock Creek. Johnson was named most valuable player of the sectional as the Mustangs won their first sectional crown since 2007.
