Nevada basketball has a very short schedule or at least it ends faster than most states nearby us. By Saturday we will be down to who goes to State playoffs or close to it. Here are some players who stood out in the first round of playoffs.
Key Matchups for Round 2
Clark vs Faith Lutheran: These two have an old feud from the 4a division or their previous division they were in. These games were tough despite Clark having the upper hand. Faith Lutheran is not as filled with D1 caliber talent but they have discipline and a plan to follow. Clark should win this game but I expect this to be hard after the removal of Woodbury and the team playing with a lot of pressure this year. Clark only went 6 players deep in the previous game against Centennial so fatigue could come into play.
Liberty vs. Canyon Springs: These are both stellar teams as of late but one is led by strong individual players and the other has a system for getting up tempo better than anyone. Canyon lacks the ability of a Burist or Strawther but they are well coached with Freddie Banks and Kevin Legardy seems to be enough to battle with anyone. If I was betting on a game than I would stay away from this. It will be an exceptional matchup between styles of play.
