*****Regular season game:Wesleyan(WES) at Charlotte Christian*****

Metro 4-A Tournament at James B. Dudley High School
#2 Page vs. #3 Southern Alamance 6pm…..Page will roll with Kea, Johnson, Smith, Barnes and Coleman and the Patriots bring Burnett, Boggs and others and SA is big, I mean they are real big and they move well…..

#2 Dudley vs. #3 Smith 7:30pm…..Tracy Gathings, Drew Williams, Adrian Wimbush, JT Williams and possibly Devan Stubbs for Smith and Dudley comes with Sam Hunt, Alvah Phillip, DJ Alston, Anthony Hamlett and Daris Workman and the Panthers have been playing inspired ball over the past two weeks and SMITH is the defending Tournament Champion from 2011….Gathings and Hunt, it will be Primetime, Showtime and just maybe Overtime tonight at James B. Dudley HS….

Piedmont Triad 4-A(Semifinals at Southwest Guilford)
#2 Northwest Guilford vs. #3 Southwest Guilford 6pm…..The keys will be Haack for NWG and Clyburn for SWG and which of the big men gets the ‘Upper Hand’ in this game….Check out the box score after the game and between these two, the man that has the bigger game, his team will win…..Haack will stay inside more and Clyburn has been playing much better in recent games for the Cowboys….Both teams have outstanding guards, but if SWG had Terrell Leach, they would be the favorite going into this game…..As it is NWG is seeded higher and they are a slight favorite even though this game is on the SWG Cowboys home floor….Jordan Hanner, the Bridges brothers(Ray and Herbie), KJ Langley, the Cowboys have guards and NWG has one of the most efficient point guards that we have ever seen in Matt Pawlowski, plus if Cody Hylton gets hot, they will have to install new lights in the SWG gym, because it will be ‘Lights Out’…..Hunter Clary is another NWG guard that can score, so it looks like the guards may cancel each other out and it will go back to the Clyburn-Haack checkout chart…..Saxton Cotton and Braxton Daye could have big nights for SWG and that would be a C’boys bonus…..We won’t be able to make this game, and that is why we wanted to give you our full breakdown on this one, on the way into the 6pm tip at SWG….This will be a very good game to see and we hope to have a full report on this one for you after it is clear tonight…..If someone will send me an E-mail update on this game, we would love to post those updates here at the site, during the night….Use your cell phone and hit me at andy@greensborosports.com….You send me 1st Q, Half, 3rd Q and final and we will post quickly…Send those tonight…..Maybe the Raider/Cowgirl parent will be there, or Mr. Bridges might be in the sending mode or others, send on……..

Still adding info and here we go with the:
Mid-Piedmont 3-A(Semifinals at North Forsyth)
#2 Northeast Guilford vs. #3 Asheboro 7:30pm….These two split in the regular season and the key for NEG is that they split with both #3 Asheboro and with #1 North Forsyth, so that really means that NEG is more than capable of winning the whole thing(MP 3-A) this week….Always need a big game from Bryce Benjamin and Muhammad Tijani, plus Trevone Williamson, Jalen Hairston, Jesse Simpson, Cameron Smith and if you get a BIG game from the Big Man, Donovan Gilmore, you win the game…..He is a key….How is he playing out of the blocks to start the game??? And that word ‘Blocks’ is the key that I am looking for….He can change the mere dynamics of the game with his wing span and the timing of his defense…His swats are crucial and how he controls his defense and his foul situation….Gilmore can do more to effect the game than any other player on the floor, but how much time will he be able to spend on the floor??? That is the key for NEG….He can do things that you can’t teach, but he must still be willing to learn what he must do to keep himself in the games, at all times….Bryce Benjamin free throws and other NEG FT’s big key too…Benjamin will get to the line a number of times……E-mail us your scores with updates, to andy@greensborosports.com……

PAC 6 2-A(Semifinals at Wheatmore)
#2 High Point Andrews vs. #3 WS Carver 6pm……Jalen Ford is the key for HPA, at least he has been for most of the season….Coach Brian Seagraves has done a fine job of keeping this Red Raider team headed in the direction and they are headed to the finals, if they can get past Carver tonight….Need to do a little more research on Carver, but I feel that HPA can win this game and then meet Trinity in the finals on Friday, if Coach Seagraves can get the same effort from his HPA boys that he has been getting all season….HPA knows what is at stake, a chance to try and take down Trinity, but the door will be closed when opportunity comes knocking, if the Raiders don’t take care of business and Carver tonight……E-mail us your score to andy@greensborosports.com…….

    Doesn’t matter who wins the Dudley vs Smith game because Page will handle either of them with ease. But for the record Smith has better players better coaching will beat Dudley by at least 12 tonight. Smith vs #1 Page Friday night!!

  • Andy Durham said,

    Word up says Smith vs. Page in the boys finals…That would be a re-match of last year’s championship game….Others feel the same way or does Dudley get it done tonight at home vs. Golden Eagles? Who is #1 today and who will be #1 tomorrow?????
