We are getting down to the wire in the regular season, and teams are starting to play with a greater sense of urgency as the importance of the games ramp up. With several close conference/league races around Cincinnati and post season seeding’s at stake, expect to see the intensity step up another notch. Here are the Previews and Predictions for Week 10.

 

West Clermont (12-4, 8-2) vs. #5 Hughes (13-2, 7-1), Tuesday 7:30pm- This will be a fun matchup between one of the best D-II teams in Ohio against one of the more underrated D-I programs in Cincinnati. The underclassmen tandem of Paul McMillan IV (2022) and Cameron McKenzie (2021) for Hughes combine to average 39ppg and are quickly becoming one of the best 1-2 punches in the city, regardless of class. But the most important player for Big Red in this game will be 6’9 senior C Kenny Jackson, who must contend with 2020 top 40 player Jackson Ames. Jackson’s ability to stay on the court and out of foul trouble will be key to a Hughes victory in this non-conference matchup.

Prediction: Hughes

 

Mt. Healthy (11-5, 7-1) vs. Walnut Hills (11-5, 7-3), Tuesday 7:30pm- The Owls
