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


NEW ALBANY — GIRLS — Madison at Charlestown

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Madison 14-4; Charlestown 9-9.

• Rankings: Madison — Class 3A No. 15.

• Last year: At Madison 77, Charlestown 61.

• Last 10 years: Madison 8-1.

• Analysis: Charlestown has been hot. Super hot. A win over Madison could make the Pirates the favorites heading into the Scottsburg Sectional. Not an easy task, though.

• Greg’s Pick: Madison 59, Charlestown 53.


BOYS — Evansville Harrison at Jeffersonville

• Time: 8 p.m.

• Records: Harrison 14-1; Jeffersonville 13-2.

• Rankings: Harrison — Class 4A No. 7; Jeffersonville — Class 4A No. 11.

• Last year: Jeffersonville 56, at Harrison 51

• Series all-time: Jeffersonville 4-1.

• Analysis: When you play the Warriors, Duncans just keep coming at you. All three — senior Ernie and sophomore twins Stanley and Everett — can all score. Jeff can, too. The Devils win in a high-scoring dual.

• Greg’s Pick: Jeffersonville 79, Harrison 76.

BOYS — Jennings County at New Albany

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Jennings County 11-5 (4-0 HHC); New Albany 8-6 (3-2 HHC).

• Last year: New Albany 53, at Jennings County 43.

• Last 15 years: New Albany 18-3.

• Analysis: New Albany can actually clinch a Hoosier Hills Conference title for rival Jeffersonville with continued domination of the Panthers.

• Greg’s Pick: New Albany 65, Jennings County 54.

BOYS — Corydon Central at Charlestown

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Corydon Central 10-4 (3-2 MSC); Charlestown 8-5 (3-2 MSC).

• Last year: At Corydon Central 70, Charlestown 54 (regular season); Corydon Central 59, Charlestown 46 (sectional)

• Last 15 years: Corydon Central 16-2.

• Analysis: Both teams were essentially eliminated from the MSC race by Brownstown last weekend. As well as the Pirates have played in close games, Corydon is probably too talented.

• Greg’s Pick: Corydon Central 70, Charlestown 62.

BOYS — Borden at Rock Creek Academy

• Time: 7:30 p.m.

• Records: Borden 12-2; Rock Creek 7-10.

• Rankings: Borden — Class A No. 5.

• Last year: At Borden 79, Rock Creek 71 (regular season); Borden 63, Rock Creek 49 (sectional).

• Last 15 years: Borden 9-5.

• Analysis: Even in a 22-2 season a year ago, Borden had a tough time shaking the Lions in two meetings. They Braves will probably win again, but this should be a good road test for them.

• Greg’s Pick: Borden 63, Rock Creek 53.
