GREG'S PICKS: Bulldogs get shot to avenge 30-point loss to Pioneers

Plus Greg's Picks, Player of the Week and the week's top performers

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY — GAMES TO WATCH — WEEKEND

GAME OF THE WEEKEND

BOYS — Providence at New Albany

• Time/Day: 7:30 p.m. Friday

• Records: Providence 13-2; New Albany 8-6.

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

• Series last 15 years: New Albany 4-1.

• Last year: At Providence 50, New Albany 20.

• Analysis: After the way the Pioneers beat up on New Albany last year, they should expect the Bulldogs to be ready. If New Albany plays the way it did Saturday in a loss at Jasper, the Bulldogs could get embarrassed for the second straight season. That’s not likely with a Jim Shannon-coached team. They’ll battle. But will it be enough? Probably not. Not even at the Doghouse.

• Greg’s Pick: Providence 48, New Albany 44.

THURSDAY

BOYS — Charlestown at Austin

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Charlestown 8-5 (); Austin 6-8 ().

• Last year: At Charlestown 63, Austin 58.

• Last 15 years: Austin 9-6.

• Analysis: Austin is playing much better than early in the year, but the Pirates have proven they have what it takes to win close road games.

• Greg’s Pick: Charlestown 65, Austin 61.

GIRLS — Floyd Central at Silver Creek

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Floyd Central 10-9; Silver Creek 14-6.

• Last year: At Floyd Central 48, Silver Creek 45.

• Last 10 years: Floyd Central 7-3.

• Analysis: The win over Scottsburg had to boost the Dragons’ confidence. Throw home-court advantage on top of it and Creek has to be get a slight nod.

• Greg’s Pick: Silver Creek 47, Floyd Central 43.

GIRLS — Jeffersonville at Providence

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Jeffersonville 6-13; Providence 10-9.

• Last year: At Jeffersonville 49, Providence 20.

• Last 10 years: Jeffersonville 10-0.

• Analysis: Jeff has beaten Providence 30 straight times. With eight losses in nine games, the Pioneers couldn’t have shown up on Jeff’s schedule at a better time.

• Greg’s Pick: Jeffersonville 50, Providence 28.

FRIDAY

BOYS — Clarksville at Brownstown Central

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Clarksville 12-3 (6-0 MSC); Brownstown Central 14-1 (7-0 MSC).

• Rankings: Clarksville — Class 2A No. 7; Brownstown Central — Class 3A No. 5.

• Last year: Brownstown Central 66, at Clarksville 62.

• Last 15 years: Brownstown Central 17-1.

• Analysis: The Mid-Southern Conference is on the line as the league’s two best teams go head-to-head. On a neutral court, this is probably a toss-up. At Brownstown, the Braves are the favorites, but few would be shocked if the Generals return home with the win and — eventually — the MSC title.

• Greg’s Pick: Brownstown Central 68, Clarksville 62.
