HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: A look at the big games of second half

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — TUESDAY, JAN. 9

• Charlestown at Rock Creek:
The Lions upset Floyd Central at the tournament in Richmond. A follow-up win over Charlestown could cement Rock Creek as a sectional contender.

FRIDAY, JAN. 11

• Corydon Central at Clarksville:
Two of the three unbeaten Mid-Southern Conference teams meet just a week from Friday.

SATURDAY, JAN. 12

• Jeffersonville at Providence:
When Jeff and Providence play, there really doesn’t need to be any extra storylines. However, if the Pioneers enter 10-0 — and possibly with a No. 1 ranking — how big will this game become?

FRIDAY, JAN. 18

• Borden at Christian Academy:
CAI has shown glimpses of being a sectional contender. Against the heavy Sectional 62 favorite, the Warriors get a chance to prove it to themselves and everyone else.

SATURDAY, JAN. 19

• Jeffersonville at Columbus East:
Entering 2013, the Olympians are on top of the Hoosier Hills Conference standings at 3-0 with Jeffersonville right behind at 2-0. This game could determine the league champion.

TUESDAY, JAN. 22

• Providence at Silver Creek:
They avoided each other in the holiday tournament, but it’s entertaining almost every time the Pioneers and Dragons meet.

FRIDAY, JAN. 25

• Borden at Orleans:
Despite a lack of proximity, this has become one of the best rivalries in all of Southern Indiana. A second meeting in the Class A regional seems likely again in 2013.

• Jeffersonville at Bedford North Lawrence: If Jeff can get by New Albany and East, it will have a chance to clinch at least a share of the conference title with a win at Bedford.

FRIDAY, FEB. 1

• Providence at New Albany:
Providence hasn’t won at New Albany in six years. The Pioneers have to believe they have a chance to leave the Dog House with a rare victory.

• Clarksville at Brownstown Central: Although Corydon could be a factor, the MSC figures to come down to the Generals and Braves on Feb. 1.
