GREG’S PICKS: Special run won’t end soon for Generals

Clarksville takes on Perry Central in regional semifinal

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — CLASS A LOOGOOTEE REGIONAL

FRIDAY SEMFINALS

SATURDAY SEMFINALS

Borden (20-3) vs. Orleans (13-10)

• Time: 10:30 a.m.

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

• Computer-based Sagarin Ratings: Borden 158 (Class A No. 12); Orleans 166 (Class A No. 15). According to Sagarin, Borden is favored by 1.75 points.

• Series last 15 years: Orleans 12-6.

• Regular-season matchup: Borden 37, at Orleans 36 on Jan. 25.

• Analysis: With the way this series as gone, anyone who makes a prediction is making a wild stab in the dark. However, Borden won at Orleans in the regular season. That’s usually enough of an indication of which team is better. In a toss-up game, that’s enough for me.

• Greg’s Pick: Borden 49, Orleans 46.

Barr-Reeve (23-1) vs. Northeast Dubois (12-12)

• Time: Approximately 12:30 p.m.

• Rankings: Barr-Reeve — Class A No. 3.

• Computer-based Sagarin Ratings: Barr-Reeve 95 (Class A No. 3); Northeast Dubois 187 (Class A No. 18). According to Sagarin, Barr-Reeve is favored by 11.82 points.

• Series last 15 years: Barr-Reeve 14-2.

• Regular-season matchup: At Barr-Reeve 72, Northeast Dubois 55.

• Analysis: This is not the most experienced Barr-Reeve team to play in this regional, but it is one of its most talented. And, as always, they play their patented tight defense under Coach Bryan Hughes.

• Greg’s Pick: Barr-Reeve 67, Northeast Dubois 54.

SATURDAY CHAMPIONSHIP

• PREDICTION: Barr-Reeve 44, Borden 38. Barr-Reeve is just the class of the field and may not stop winning until it gets to the state championship game for the fourth time in 12 years. One of these years, the Vikings are even going to win it.
