GREG'S PICKS: Tourney time: Postseason begins tonight

Expect great first-round game between Generals, Pioneers




Brownstown Central (20-1) vs. Silver Creek (9-11)

• Time: 6 p.m.

• Rankings: Brownstown Central — Class 3A No. 4 AP.

• Computer-based Sagarin rankings: Brownstown Central 51 (Class 3A No. 10); Silver Creek 184 (Class 3A No. 49).

• Series last 15 years: Brownstown Central 10-8 (1-1 in tournament games).

• Regular-season matchup: At Brownstown Central 39, Silver Creek 23 on Jan. 11.

• Analysis: Silver Creek’s Brandon Hoffman deserves to be in the Coach of the Year discussion after the Dragons’ second half of the season. But Brownstown seems destined for a long tournament run.

• Greg’s Pick: Brownstown Central 59, Silver Creek 47.


Corydon Central (16-5) at Charlestown (11-9)

• Internet broadcast:

• Time: 6 p.m.

• Computer-based Sagarin rankings: Corydon Central 106 (Class 3A No. 22); Charlestown 200 (Class 3A No. 54).

• Series last 15 years: Corydon Central 17-2 (Corydon 2-0 in tournament games).

• Regular-season matchup: Corydon Central 60, at Charlestown 50 on Feb. 2.

• Analysis: Corydon has knocked the Pirates out of the tournament the past two years and the Panthers won in Charlestown earlier this month. Even at home, that’s a lot of history to overcome for C’town.

• Greg’s Pick: Corydon Central 59, Charlestown 52.

North Harrison (13-7) vs. Scottsburg (4-16)

• Time: Approximately 7:30 p.m.

• Computer-based Sagarin rankings: North Harrison 173 (Class 3A No. 44); Scottsburg 306 (Class 3A No. 86).

• Series last 15 years: Scottsburg 15-3.

• Regular-season matchup: North Harrison 73, at Scottsburg 45 on Jan. 5.

• Analysis: Scottsburg seemed to find something at the end of the year. But it won’t be enough to overcome a North Harrison program having its best season in nearly a decade.

• Greg’s Pick: North Harrison 63, Scottsburg 53.



Henryville (0-19) at Crawford County (13-7)

• Time: 6 p.m.

• Computer-based Sagarin rankings: Henryville 412 (Class 2A No. 100); Crawford County 179 (Class 2A No. 27).

• Series last 15 years: No meetings.

• Regular-season matchup: The regular-season matchup between the Wolfpack and Hornets was canceled due to the Feb. 21 winter forecast.

• Analysis: Henryville will finish the season without a win, but the improvement late in the season was obvious. The Hornets pushed Oldenburg Academy, West Washington and Indianapolis Herron in three of their last six games.

• Greg’s Pick: Crawford County 64, Henryville 41.
