GREG'S PICKS: Braves look to recover against rival Clarksville

New Albany goes to Bedford for HHC finale; Jeff has tough double weekend

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Providence (15-3) at North Harrison (12-6), 7:30 p.m.

• Rankings: Providence — Class 2A No. 4 AP.

• Series last 15 years: Providence 11-4.

• Last year: At Providence 64, North Harrison 27.

• Analysis: North Harrison is having its best season since 2004. That won’t help the Cougars against Providence.

• Greg’s Pick: Providence 48, North Harrison 35.

Jasper (9-8) at Floyd Central (4-16), 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: Jasper 5-2.

• Last year: Floyd Central 57, at Jasper 53.

• Analysis: The good news for Floyd Central is the Wildcats are 2-6 on the road this season. The bad news is they’ve won six of their last eight overall since getting healthy. It will be close one way or  the other.

• Greg’s Pick: Jasper 53, Floyd Central 47.

New Washington (9-10, 3-1 SAC) at South Central (11-6, 2-2 SAC), 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: South Central 13-8.

• Last year: South Central 53, at New Washington 44 (regular season); South Central 52, New Washington 43 (sectional semifinal).

• Analysis: A win over New Wash would give the Rebels a share of the SAC. They get it done.

• Greg’s Pick: South Central 68, New Washington 62.

Rock Creek (7-13) at Madison Shawe (7-11), 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: Shawe 7-4.

• Last year: At Rock Creek 56, Shawe 50.

• Analysis: Shawe has been better of late, but this should still be a winnable road game for the Lions. And after losing four straight, it’s one they need.

• Greg’s Pick: Rock Creek 55, Shawe 51.

Eastern (9-9, 3-5 MSC) at Brownstown Central (18-1, 8-0 MSC), 7:30 p.m.

• Rankings: Brownstown Central — Class 3A No. 4 AP; Receiving votes IBCA.

• Series last 15 years: Brownstown 13-5.

• Last year: Brownstown 71, at Eastern 56.

• Analysis: Clarksville needs a big effort from the Musketeers to get a share of the MSC title. That’s asking an awful lot.

• Greg’s Pick: Brownstown Central 79, Eastern 66.

SATURDAY

Jeffersonville (16-3) at Castle (13-4), 7:30 p.m.


• Rankings: Jeffersonville — Class 4A No. 14 AP; No. 17 IBCA.

• Series all-time: Jeffersonville 6-0.

• Last year: At Jeffersonville 61, Castle 55.

• Analysis: If it comes down to a battle of the superstars, I’ll take Darryl Baker even against Blake Simmons. And I’ll take the Devils over the Knights.

• Greg’s Pick: Jeffersonville 72, Castle 68.
