• Records: New Albany 7-5, Jasper 6-6.

• Last year: At New Albany 82, Jasper 39.

• Last 15 years: New Albany 12-3.

• Analysis: It’s one of those long back-to-back road weekends for New Albany, but the Bulldogs should be able to handle it.

• Greg’s Pick: New Albany 70, Jasper 54.

GIRLS — Evansville Bosse at New Albany

• Time: 2:30 p.m.

• Records: Bosse 13-6, New Albany 9-9.

• Last year: New Albany 73, at Bosse 71.

• Last 10 years: New Albany 5-3.

• Analysis: Have we mentioned that Tanner Marcum is playing really, really well lately? It will take an another enormous effort from Marcum and the Bulldogs to beat Bosse.

• Greg’s Pick: New Albany 56, Bosse 54.

GIRLS — South Central at Borden

• Time: 2:30 p.m.

• Records: South Central 5-12 (2-2 Southern Athletic Conference); Borden 10-6 (2-2 SAC).

• Last 10 years: South Central 17-2.

• Analysis: Borden’s picking up steam as it heads toward time to defend its sectional title.

• Greg’s Pick: Borden 44, South Central 35.

GIRLS — Silver Creek at Scottsburg

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Last 10 years: Scottsburg 9-1.

• Analysis: Scottsburg’s not playing as well as early in the season, giving the Dragons a little hope of shaking up the MSC. The Warriorettes would clinch at least a share of the conference crown with a win.

• Greg’s Pick: Scottsburg 64, Silver Creek 57.
