GREG'S PICKS: Jeff moving closer to defending HHC crown

Red Devils two victories away from repeating as conference champs

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — GAMES TO WATCH — WEEKEND

GAME OF THE WEEKEND

BOYS — Jeffersonville at Bedford North Lawrence

• Time/Day: 7:30 tonight.

• Records: Jeffersonville 12-2 (5-0 Hoosier Hills Conference); Bedford North Lawrence 6-8 (2-2 HHC).

• Rankings: Jeffersonville — Class 4A No. 13 Associated Press, No. 15 Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

• All-time series: Jeffersonville 25-21.

• Series last 15 years: Jeffersonville 12-9.

• Last year: At Jeffersonville 79, Bedford NL 62 (regular season); Jeffersonville 69, Bedford NL 63 (sectional championship).

• Analysis: Bedford is a tough place to play, but the Stars aren’t as good as Columbus East and Providence, both of which the Red Devils beat on the road.

• Greg’s Pick: Jeffersonville 69, Bedford NL 61

FRIDAY

BOYS — Borden at Orleans

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Borden 11-2, Orleans 8-6.

• Rankings: Borden — Class A No. 5 AP.

• Last year: At Borden 46, Orleans 40 (regular season); Orleans 68, Borden 48 (regional).

• Last 15 years: Orleans 12-5.

• Analysis: Orleans is a little down and Borden has struggled a little of late. Don’t be fooled by the Bulldogs’ record. They can still play basketball. Have to take them in a close one at home.

• Greg’s Pick: Orleans 53, Borden 50.

BOYS — New Albany at Evansville North

• Time: 8 p.m.

• Records: New Albany 7-5, Evansville North 7-5.

• Last year: Evansville North 61, at New Albany 47.

• Last 15 years: New Albany 10-5.

• Analysis: An easy schedule last weekend may have been the prescription the Bulldogs needed. Maybe it gives them a confidence boost down the stretch.

• Greg’s Pick: New Albany 68, Evansville North 62.

BOYS — Christian Academy at Providence

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Christian Academy 5-7, Providence 12-2.

• Rankings: Providence — Class 2A No. 4 AP.

• Last year: Providence 48, at Christian Academy 32.

• Last 15 years: Providence 13-2.

• Analysis: Will Tuesday’s loss light a fire on the Pioneers? CAI better hope not.

• Greg’s Pick: Providence 52, Christian Academy 36

BOYS — Silver Creek at Madison

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Silver Creek 4-10, Madison 7-6.

• Last year: At Silver Creek 63, Madison 55.

• Last 15 years: Madison 9-7.

• Analysis: If the Dragons can pull this one off, they have a chance to close the regular season with six wins in seven games (or even seven straight). Madison’s been playing better, too.

• Greg’s Pick: Madison 63, Silver Creek 57.
