GREG'S PICKS: Tourney time: Postseason begins tonight

Expect great first-round game between Generals, Pioneers

(Continued)

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Clarksville (15-5) vs. Providence (17-3)

• Time: Approximately 7:30 p.m.

• Rankings: Clarksville — Class 2A No. 8 AP; Providence — Class 2A No. 3 AP.

• Computer-based Sagarin rankings: Clarksville 120 (Class 2A No. 12); Providence 69 (Class 2A No. 5).

• Series last 15 years: Providence 21-7 (Providence 2-0 in tournament games).

• Regular-season matchups: Providence 38, Clarksville 36 (Silver Creek Holiday Tournament); At Providence 60, Clarksville 51 (regular-season matchup).

• Analysis: This is the second neutral-court matchup between the Generals and Pioneers this season. The first one was a classic. It could have gone either way — and that will be the case again tonight. It’s a toss-up. I’m taking Providence only because the Pioneers have been more consistent throughout the season.

• Greg’s Pick: Providence 47, Clarksville 46.

CLASS A BORDEN SECTIONAL

TUESDAY

Rock Creek Academy (8-14) vs. Lanesville (12-8)

• Time: 6 p.m.

• Computer-based Sagarin rankings: Rock Creek 297 (Class A No. 52); Lanesville 213 (Class A No. 27).

• Series last 15 years: Lanesville 13-2 (Lanesville 2-0 in tournament games).

• Regular-season matchup: Lanesville 67, at Rock Creek 45.

• Analysis: Rock Creek beat Cannelton last Friday for its first win in over a month. The Lions sputtered down the stretch. That’s not good heading into a matchup against an experienced Lanesville team that beat the Lions by 22 points earlier this season.

• Greg’s Pick: Lanesville 69, Rock Creek 49.

South Central (13-7) at Borden (17-3)

• Time: Approximately 7:30 p.m.

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

• Computer-based Sagarin rankings: South Central 264 (Class A No. 41); Borden 177 (Class A No. 16).

• Series last 15 years: Borden 12-11 (Borden 3-0 in tournament games, including 71-51 in last year’s sectional championship).

• Regular-season matchup: At Borden 77, South Central 42

• Analysis: It won’t be 35 points again, but the Braves should win comfortably again.

• Greg’s Pick: Borden 69, South Central 58.
