Much better week for me last week with my previews and predictions. After a 0-2 start to the season I bounced back with a 2-1 week. Hopefully this week is good to me as well as I preview a huge CMAC matchup and a game featuring two of the better players in the GMC. Here are my Previews and Predictions for week three.
Last Week: 2-1
Lakota East (1-1, 1-0) at Mason (3-0, 1-0), Tuesday 7:30pm: The first match-up between two programs looking to fight Princeton for the league title. For the Comets 2018 F Noah Pedelty (PHO #85) is having a great all-around start to the season averaging 14, 4 and 4 over the first three games. But his defense might be even more important going against one of the best scorers in the city in Fairmont State commit Jarrett Cox (PHO c/o ’18 #42). Expect to see that match-up some throughout the evening, along with senior Tanner Knue (PHO c/o ’18 #141) on Cox as well.
Taft (0-1, 0-0) at Hughes (3-1, 1-1), Friday 7:30pm: After three highly entertaining meetings last year we get the first off possibly three this season, hopefully. But the two that are scheduled this season will again go along way into helping determine the CMAC conference championship. This will be Taft’s first local game after losing their opener to Columbus Northland December 2nd. What a way to come back from a 10-day layoff than dealing with Giovanni Santiago (PHO c/o ’18 #33) who already has hit the 30-point mark twice this season. Also getting going lately for Big Red is 2018 F Arian “AJ” Smith Jr. (PHO #156) who is averaging 19ppg over the last two.
Wyoming (2-0, 1-0) at Deer Park (3-0, 1-0) Friday 7:30pm: What a start the Wildcats are off to for the season, winning by an average of 47 points a game. Loaded with talent, some will say that this is there first major test of the season going against the defending league champions in Wyoming. The Cowboys depth and mental toughness will be tested against a Deer Park that uses various traps and presses. Turnovers must be limited against the Wildcats because they are very good in transition.
Prediction: Deer Park
