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

Several teams setting themselves up for big runs

(Continued)

JEFFERSONVILLE — BLOOMINGTON NORTH (11-8) at NEW ALBANY (13-6), 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: New Albany 7-1.

• Last year: New Albany 66, at Bloomington North 55.

• Analysis: You have to love the way New Albany is playing. The Bulldogs are moving the ball, finding the open man and knocking down shots. It will take a monumental performance, but they’re starting to believe they can beat Jeffersonville in the sectional.

• Greg’s Pick: New Albany 68, Bloomington North 54.

SILVER CREEK (8-11) at SEYMOUR (2-17), 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: Seymour 9-3.

• Last year: At Silver Creek 50, Seymour 45.

• Analysis: Drawing Brownstown in the first round of the sectional was a bummer for the Dragons, but the second half of this season should give them some serious momentum heading into 2013-14.

• Greg’s Pick: Silver Creek 54, Seymour 32.

ROCK CREEK (7-14) vs. CANNELTON (8-11), 2:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: Rock Creek 14-3.

• Last year: At Rock Creek 85, Cannelton 56.

• Analysis: The Lions have had some nice opportunities this year. First playing in the big tournament at Richmond. Now playing at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Plus, playing Cannelton should give them an opportunity to end their five-game losing streak.

• Greg’s Pick: Rock Creek 70, Cannelton 55.

BORDEN (16-3) at SALEM (0-19), 7:30 p.m.

• Rankings: Borden — Class A No. 10 AP.

• Series last 15 years: Salem 16-8.

• Last year: At Borden 60, Salem 48.

• Analysis: As predicted at the beginning of the season, it has been a crazy year in Borden, epitomized by the last week. The Braves lost to 8-11 Springs Valley at home, then beat Class 2A No. 6 Clarksville on Friday. That’s a really nice win for a thriving program headed toward its fourth sectional championship in six years.

• Greg’s Pick: Borden 67, Salem 35.

SPRINGS VALLEY (8-11) at EASTERN (9-10), 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: Eastern 8-1.

• Last year: Eastern 61, at Springs Valley 47.

• Analysis: Springs Valley suddenly looks like a different team, but don’t expect the Blackhawks to win in Pekin.

• Greg’s Pick: Eastern 60, Springs Valley 55.
