Final Weekend Preview:

This Friday's schedule in a word- LOADED. Two must see matchups between some of the best in the state plus a full slate of city league action. Most peoples attention will be focused on the GCL title which will be decided at LaSalle between the Lancers and Moeller. Don't forget about the East @ Middletown game as the Middies try and ruin East's perfect season and give their seniors a second signature win this week to end their home court careers.

  • Lakota East @ Middletown: The Middies are red hot right now, 7 wins in a row and coming off of a 20 point blowout win over #1 Moeller. This is the last game that stands between East and an undefeated regular season. It's hard to consider East an underdog but on the road, with the type of crowd that the Middies are capable of producing, it looks like an even matchup. Will Mike Boyd and the rest of East's guard be able to contain Geovonie McKnight and the rest of the Middies athletes?
    • Prediction: Very close game, East makes a second half comeback to finish 20-0.
  • Moeller @ LaSalle: The Crusaders started the season 18-0 but now there is a chance they could start another streak, a two game losing streak. The Lancers have absolutely no intention of losing at home, especially since they need a win to split the GCL crown with Moeller. One thing can be guaranteed, Coach Kramer will not allow another performance out of Moeller like Tuesday night's. This is the most intriguing game of the season so far, with so much on the line. It just seems fitting that these two will decide the title on the last night of the regular season.
    • Prediction: It's really difficult to pick against LaSalle at home but CPHR believes that Moeller will rebound from their loss and win the GCL title outright.
  • West High @ Aiken: Senior night for Gene Primus (a three year starter), Keron Hicks, and Femi Thompson. Aiken lost this match-up the first time around and wants to redeem themselves against West High, who has been the surprise of the league.
    • Prediction: Close call but Aiken pulls it off.
  • Hughes @ Withrow: Senior night for a great class of Aaron Thomas, Carl Porter, and Kevin Jones. Withrow wants to end the regular season on a win while they try and gear up for a run all the way to Columbus. This will be Hughes last chance to get a league win.
    • Prediction: Withrow
  • Taft @ Shroder: The final potential roadblock to ruin a undefeated league season for Taft will be at Shroder. The Senators are clear favorites but Jalen Billups and Kairo Cannon will be desperate for a win in their last Jaguar home game.
    • Prediction: Taft
  • Mason @ Princeton: These are the other two teams, besides Lakota East and Middletown, to win ten league games going into the final game. That is extremely impressive considering how tough the GMC is so this one should be evenly matched like last time when Princeton won in overtime.
    • Prediction: Princeton pulls it off.
  • Lakota West @ Fairfield
  • Hamilton @ Colerain
  • Sycamore @ Oak Hills
  • Badin @ Roger Bacon
  • Elder @ St. Xavier
  • Little Miami @ Milford
  • Wilmington @ Turpin
  • Winton Woods @ Northwest
  • Jefferson @ West High
  • Woodward @ North College Hill
