GREG'S PICKS: Fans will know more about Jeff very soon

Devils battle No. 1 Ballard tonight

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — THURSDAY

GIRLS — Jeffersonville at Corydon Central

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Jeffersonville 3-4, Corydon Central 5-3.

• Last year: At Jeffersonville 52, Corydon Central 47.

• All-time Series: Jeffersonville 19-6.

• Assessment: Everything about this game says it will come down to the fourth quarter. Jeff may have gotten just enough confident from the East win to get on a roll at the end of 2012.

• Greg’s Pick: Jeffersonville 55, Corydon Central 52.

GIRLS — Louisville Ballard at New Albany

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Ballard 4-0, New Albany 4-3.

• Last meeting: New Albany 46, at Ballard 33 (Feb. 5, 2009)

• Last 10 years: New Albany 3-0.

• Assessment: This should be a close game. I’m not sure why I’m taking New Albany. Maybe just because I think Southern Indiana is better than Louisville.

• Greg’s Pick: New Albany 60, Ballard 58.

GIRLS — Christian Academy at Providence

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Christian Academy 1-4, Providence 5-4.

• Last year: Providence 40, at Christian Academy 29.

• Last 10 years: Providence 5-0.

• Assessment: Providence will not be a happy group after blowing a double-digit lead against Henryville.

• Greg’s Pick: Providence 50, Christian Academy 32.

GIRLS — Eastern at New Washington

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Eastern 5-2, New Washington 7-2.

• Rankings: New Washington, No. 12 Class A.

• Last year: At Eastern 67, New Washington 45.

• Last 10 years: Eastern 7-3.

• Assessment: This is another one that could go either way. I like the team with more experience and the homecourt advantage.

• Greg’s Pick: New Washington 65, Eastern 61.

GIRLS’ PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Tanner Marcum, New Albany

Marcum combined for 37 points and — more importantly — 19 assists in a 61-51 loss to Scottsburg on Thursday and a 52-51 victory over Jennings County on Saturday. Easily the Bulldogs’ leading scorer, Marcum has looked more to pass in the last week. She had 14 points and nine assists against Scottsburg and a double-double with 23 points and 10 assists in Saturday’s Hoosier Hills Conference win.
