TEN TO WATCH: Basketball season is underway

Some big games are on tap early

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — CHRISTIAN ACADEMY AT PROVIDENCE

TIME: 7:30 p.m. (Henryville Tipoff Tournament)

LAST 10 YEARS: Providence 6-0.

LAST YEAR: At Providence 39, Christian Academy 31.

REASON TO WATCH: Although CAI isn’t officially part of the tournament, the win would count for the Pioneers and likely give them a spot in Saturday’s championship game.

THE PICK: Providence 53, Christian Academy 37.

JEFFERSONVILLE (0-0) AT NORTH HARRISON (2-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

LAST 10 YEARS: Jeffersonville 7-3.

LAST YEAR: At Jeffersonville 72, North Harrison 57.

REASON TO WATCH: Jeffersonville should have a decent team by the end of the year. It will be interesting to see how quickly the Red Devils adapt to Warren. There’s little doubt that the former New Albany boys’ assistant coach will get the job done, but opening at 2-0 North Harrison is a tough way to start.

THE PICK: North Harrison 66, Jeffersonville 61.

SEYMOUR (2-0) AT SILVER CREEK (0-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

LAST 10 YEARS: Silver Creek 1-0.

LAST YEAR: Silver Creek 44, at Seymour 41.

REASON TO WATCH: A year ago, the Dragons got big win at Seymour in their opener. This year, Creek should be even better.

THE PICK: Silver Creek 55, Seymour 48.

FLOYD CENTRAL (0-0) AT EVANSVILLE HARRISON (0-0)

TIME: 8 p.m.

LAST 10 YEARS: Floyd Central 7-4.

LAST YEAR: Harrison 61, at Floyd Central 58.

REASON TO WATCH: A road victory to get things started should kickstart a great season for the Highlanders. Floyd should have its best team since the 2010 regional championship squad.

THE PICK: Floyd Central 69, Harrison 58.

SATURDAY

HENRYVILLE TIPOFF TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP

TIME: 6 p.m.

LAST YEAR’S CHAMPION: Oldenburg Academy.

REASON TO WATCH: Although Clarksville may be in the mix, the title should come down to Providence and Henryville. A season-opening tournament title would be big for either burgeoning program.

THE PICK: Henryville 48, Providence 43.

SOUTHWESTERN (1-0) AT EASTERN (1-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

LAST 10 YEARS: Eastern 1-0.

LAST YEAR: Eastern 58, at Southwestern 48.

REASON TO WATCH: Both teams began the 2013-14 campaign with nice victories. The Musketeers are hoping to rebound from last year’s 10-13 season.

THE PICK: Eastern 48, Southwestern 44.
