GREG'S PICKS: Champions will be crowned on Saturday

Bedford, Corydon, Paoli and New Wash picked to win sectional titles

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Scottsburg (14-7) vs. Silver Creek (16-6), approximately 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 10 years: Scottsburg 9-2.

• This season: Jan. 26 — Silver Creek 45, at Scottsburg 41.

• Total Sectional championships: Scottsburg 15, Silver Creek 5.

• Last sectional championship: Scottsburg — 2012; Silver Creek — 2011.

• Analysis: As well as Silver Creek has played and as much as the Warriorettes miss their top players, history makes it hard for me to imagine the Dragons going into Scottsburg and winning twice in a season.

• Greg’s Pick: Scottsburg 50, Silver Creek 47.

PREDICTED CHAMPION: Corydon Central. Jillian Romero’s injury paved the way for the Panthers to win their fifth sectional in nine years.

CLASS 2A PAOLI SECTIONAL

FRIDAY SEMIFINALS

Paoli (19-1) vs. Providence (11-10), 6 p.m.


• Rankings: Paoli — No. 4 ICGSA.

• Series last 10 years: Paoli 3-0.

• This season: Did not meet.

• Last meeting: Paoli 55, Providence 39 (2012 sectional).

• Total Sectional championships: Paoli 2, Providence 0.

• Last sectional championship: Paoli — 2012.

• Analysis: It was a nice season for Providence, but nothing will stop the Rams from rolling through this sectional.

• Greg’s Pick: Providence 63, Providence 42.

Henryville (14-9) vs. Eastern (9-12), approximately 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 10 years: Eastern 10-1.

• This season: At Eastern 41, Henryville 35.

• Total Sectional championships: Henryville 1, Eastern 1.

• Last sectional championship: Henryville — 1994; Eastern — 1996.

• Analysis: Winning sectional games may become a habit for the Hornets in the coming years, but their 2012-13 road likely ends on Friday.

• Greg’s Pick: Eastern 51, Henryville 41.

PREDICTED CHAMPION: Paoil. The Rams have been the class of the field from the start this season.

CLASS A NEW WASHINGTON SECTIONAL

FRIDAY SEMIFINALS

South Central (7-14) vs. Lanesville (10-10), 6 p.m.


• Series last 10 years: South Central 22-1.

• This season: Jan. 2 — At South Central 47, Lanesville 28.

• Total Sectional championships: South Central 7, Lanesville 0.

• Last sectional championship: South Central — 2010.

• Analysis: If ever one rival dominated the other, its the Rebels over Lanesville — and unfortunately for the Eagles, it will continue on Friday.

• Greg’s Pick: South Central 53, Lanesville 44.

New Washington (18-2) vs. Rock Creek Academy (0-19), approximately 7:30 p.m.
