*****We still have six Guilford County teams left in the hunt for the State Titles…How many teams will be left after tonight??? Will it be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6? Who has the best chance of winning and moving on to Greensboro and Fayetteville next week? SEG and SG girls have very tough hills to climb and it makes for a rough hill for the Storm, since they have to go to Chapel Hill….SEG against Myers Park at MP, that is one heck of a challenge…The NEG boys will face stiff opposition from Statesville and can Sam Hunt keep Dudley in the hunt, he has had 30 and 31 point games in the first two rounds….The NG girls have beaten Eastern Alamance three times already this season and here we are in Round Three and the Nighthawks are playing the Eagles for a fourth time and and ‘Birdshot’ will at a premium on Spencer-Dixon Road this evening, with Nighthawks and Eagles in the house…It is has been a strong run so far by the Lady Pirates of Page and I know they look forward to getting senior Debrisha Barnes back in their lineup tonight and those Jones sisters/twins from West Forsyth are going to be handful, but if Page can stablize them and take care of the rest of the Titans, they have a very good chance to win and move on to the Greensboro Coliseum….

Who do you take tonight and whomever you take tonight, you take them with you to the Regional Rounds next week….Who you taking?????? We have six teams left and how many will be left after tonight??? I’m going to say three teams left and I’ll let you name the field, after the field has been cut in half….Who will that three be???

And good luck to all the teams that you can check in on below….I was just going to list the games and let it go with that, but after all of the watching, blogging, talking and commentaries from the season, you feel like you still need to add something more, until we have no more teams left in the field and tonight is like the ‘Sweet Sixteeen’, you know what I mean and not trying to be mean, but who will be left on the scene, after tonight’s games are complete???

After a long monologue, here are your games for tonight….*****

  • Andy Durham said,

    You put some good thought into these picks and I must say, very interesting…

    Look forward to looking back at these later on tonight..

    Wonder what others are saying/thinking about the games and these picks???

    Well-done and with some very good input….

  • Joe said,

    Reagan is one of the best shooting teams I have seen and I’ve seen some very good teams in the Triad….(Tabor,Davie,SW) It will tough to win on the road again but I think they will squeeze one out vs Dudley because the go very deep on their bench…..that being said, the states are lining up nicely for Mt.Tabor and Olympic or West Charlotte….

  • Cooley said,

    Our Page Pirates will win by 26 points West Forsyth and everyone knows that Northern has had an easy road. We would beat them by 30!

  • sg said,

    I believe the Storm is going to win by 17 points! We have the Coach of the year!

  • MIM said,

    Page – W Forsyth: Page
    Eastern – N Guilford: Northern
    Chapel Hill – S Guilford: Chapel Hill but in a close one.
    Reagan – Dudley: Dudley
    Statesville – NE Guilford: NE

    Upset alert: SE knocks off Myers in OT. Why? Well why the heck not?

  • Ballhawk said,

    Myers Park by 15, too strong defensively and on the boards.

    West Forsyth by 6, the Jones twins will be tough to handle for Key and crew on defense. They completely took Lovette and Pone away for SW in the Regionals last year.

    NG by 12, Amanda has NG on her back right now.

    Chapel Hill by 15, Just a guess, Southern didn’t look very good when I saw them this year.

    Reagan by 5, they make it another UGLY game like they did against SWG. They keep fresh legs on Hunt like they did Leech.

    NEG by 10, too many people that can step up, and don’t know much about Statesville.

  • bystander said,

    Myers park over SEG
    Page over West Forsyth
    Eastern Ala. and Terri Rodgers over Northern
    Chapel Hill over Southern (Cinderella down)

    Dudley over Reagan
    Northeast over Statesville

  • Triad observer said,

    Myers Park over SEG
    N. Guilford over E. Alamance
    Chapel Hill over S. Guilford
    NEG over Statesville
    Dudley over Reagan
    W. Forsyth sends Page home empty

  • Isaiah said,

    Southeast girls win!!!! 48-45

  • Ram said,

    Statesville got us 88-71.
    Very quick team that can also shoot the 3.
    They could win 3A.
