GREG'S PICKS: Bulldogs get shot to avenge 30-point loss to Pioneers

Plus Greg's Picks, Player of the Week and the week's top performers


NEW ALBANY — BOYS — Evansville Reitz at Jeffersonville

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Reitz 10-6; Jeffersonville 13-2.

• Rankings: Jeffersonville — Class 4A No. 11.

• Last year: Jeffersonville 69, at Reitz 37.

• Series all-time: Jeffersonville 11-7.

• Analysis: The Devils will take care of Reitz early and start to focus on the big one Saturday.

• Greg’s Pick: Jeffersonvile 73, Reitz 60.

BOYS — Bedford North Lawrence at Floyd Central

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Bedford NL 6-10 (2-3 HHC); Floyd Central 4-13 (1-5 HHC).

• Last year: At Bedford NL 52, Floyd Central 44.

• Last 15 years: Bedford NL 15-3.

• Analysis: Friday’s HHC win was a big one for Floyd. The Highlanders have a chance to win two straight. I’m leaning BNL in a close one, though.

• Greg’s Pick: Bedford NL 62, Floyd Central 60.

BOYS — Salem at Silver Creek

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Salem 0-14 (0-6 MSC); Silver Creek 5-10 (0-5 MSC).

• Last year: Silver Creek 63, at Salem 53.

• Last 15 years: Silver Creek 10-8.

• Analysis: Beating Corydon will be tough on Feb. 15, but if the Dragons keep playing the way they have been lately, their schedule could allow them to finish the regular season on a seven-game winning streak. That would put them at .500 after a 3-10 start.

• Greg’s Pick: Silver Creek 72, Salem 46.

BOYS — New Washington at Lanesville

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: New Washington 6-9 (2-1 SAC); Lanesville 9-7 (2-1 SAC).

• Last year: Lanesville 62, at New Washington 38.

• Last 15 years: Lanesville 11-5.

• Analysis: Lanesville hasn’t played up to expectations and has lost three straight. New Wash has already won five more games than last season. Still, it will take a huge effort from the Mustangs to win in Lanesville.

• Greg’s Pick: Lanesville 66, New Washington 53.

BOYS — Christian Academy at Trinity Lutheran

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Christian Academy 5-8; Trinity Lutheran 5-11.

• Last year: At Christian Academy 52, Trinity Lutheran 44.

• Last 15 years: Christian Academy 6-3.

• Analysis: Even with seven losses in nine games, CAI has played well at times. Friday will provide a much-needed win.

• Greg’s Pick: Christian Academy 64, Trinity Lutheran 53.
