GREG'S PICKS: Young Henryville is suddenly one of area’s hottest teams

Freshman-dominated Hornets have won six straight to get to 9-6

(Continued)

HENRYVILLE — GIRLS — Brownstown Central at New Washington

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Brownstown Central 6-6, New Washington 12-2.

• Rankings: New Washington — Class A No. 12.

• Last year: Did not play.

• Last 10 years: Have not met.

• Analysis: This is a good pickup to the New Washington schedule. And this is a good year for the Mustangs to host the Braves. Brownstown is a little down (but still dangerous) and the Mustangs are really, really good. If the Mustangs’ recent win over Jeffersonville is followed up by a victory over Brownstown, all of Class A better start to take notice.

• Greg’s Pick: New Washington 58, Brownstown Central 54.

GIRLS — Jeffersonville at Seymour

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Jeffersonville 6-10 (2-3 HHC); Seymour 6-11 (1-3 HHC).

• Last year: Seymour 69, at Jeffersonville 62.

• Last 10 years: Jeffersonville 9-4.

• Analysis: Not long ago, the Jeffersonville-Seymour game was big. Conference championship big. Don’t try to tell the Devils and Owls that it’s no longer an important game. This year it means a chance to close in on .500 and momentum heading into the sectional. These two teams have had rough seasons, but both feel like they’ll be tough to beat in February.

• Greg’s Pick: Jeffersonville 45, Seymour 41.

THURSDAY

GIRLS — Borden at Henryville

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Borden 7-6 (1-2 SAC); Henryville 9-6 (2-2 SAC).

• Last year: At Borden 48, Henryville 35.

• Last 10 years: Borden 12-6.

• Analysis: Early in the season, this looked like it would be a Borden blowout. The way the Hornets are playing, it’s not close to a sure win for the Braves.

• Greg’s Pick: Borden 46, Henryville 45.

GIRLS — Lanesville at Clarksville

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Lanesville 10-5, Clarksville 3-13.

• Last year: At Lanesville 59, Clarksville 41.

• Last 10 years: Lanesville 4-1.

• Analysis: It may not be showing in the Generals’ record, but these are two of the area’s most improved teams since the start of the season.

• Greg’s Pick: Lanesville 47, Clarksville 40.

GIRLS — Salem at Charlestown

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Salem 6-10 (1-6 MSC); Charlestown 7-8 (2-4 MSC)

• Last year: Charlestown 53, at Salem 44.

• Last 10 years: Charlestown 9-3.

• Analysis: The Pirates continue their ascent up the Mid-Southern Conference standings. Now, if only they could start the season over. They’ll certainly be a team to watch in 2013-14.

• Greg’s Pick: Charlestown 62, Salem 39.
