The season is here and there are games on Monday night. We begin our weekly stories now as we breakdown the best of the best games for each night of the week.
7:30PM – Monday
7:30PM – Tuesday
7:30PM – Wednesday
7:30PM – Thursday
Marion County Tournament
6:00PM – Friday
7:30PM – Saturday
Breakdown: The upcoming week is now back to normal and we have a slew of solid games including the Marion County and SIAC Tournaments this week. Mondays will become a slow day and this week, with only three game, Indianapolis Arlington vs. Heritage Christian is the best of them. Arlington is off to a good start but they need a marquee win. Heritage Christian has some decent wins already but the last week or so they have been showing some cracks. Both teams needing a win in this one.
For Tuesday, you have a rematch of last year’s fun Sectional Championship game with Southwood taking on Oak Hill. Oak Hill is still trying to figure out their lack of lead guards and this will be another test for them against a Southwood team that brought back basically everyone from a year ago. Southwood has since moved down to 1A so this will be their only meeting this season.
Wednesday, we get Carmel vs. Cathedral is a big time Marion County matchup. With the Marion County Tournament going on, this is a matchup of two of the best teams not in that every. Carmel just got done beating a really solid Center Grove team and Cathedral did the same with Roncalli. Carmel might need this game more as they are just now getting healthy and have had a tough time until now.
Thursday brings us a great rivalry game with Batesville and Greensburg doing battle. Batesville is okay this season, not great but solid and they will surely bring their best effort of the year against their rival in Greensburg. The Pirates have had a rough last week with a pair of losses so they really need to get back on track and a big win over Batesville would do wonders.
Friday, we have to go with the Marion County Tournament Semifinals. We obviously don’t know the matchups but if they likely winners get through, you could see a pair of Sectional Championship preview games as Warren Central vs. Lawrence North could be the opener with Ben Davis and Roncalli closing out the night. Would be the best set of games if things fall that way.
Saturday, we are looking at the same as we are predicting a great final game at the SIAC tournament. With Evansville Harrison/Castle vs. the winner of Evansville Bosse/Evansville Memorial as the likely outcome. Any of those combinations will be worth a watch and could give you the best game of the night in the state.
