Weekend Preview

The most heated rivalry in the GCL-South, a Withrow road trip, and the always busy GMC schedule are the top featured games of the weekend.....

·         Moeller @ LaSalle: The first of two division games, in what has become the city’s most intense rivalry, will begin Friday night at the home of the defending State Champions. The up-tempo Lancers will try and pressure the more methodical Crusaders in a game where there are no secrets. Moeller has more experience in the rivalry, while LaSalle has the home court advantage, and both have great coaches. The key to this game will be junior PG Keith Watkins and senior SG Ben Galemmo of Moeller handling the pressure of LaSalle. If Moeller can get the ball down low they have significant size advantages. Remember that LaSalle has a team full of three-point shooters, the great equalizer against physical limitations.
o    Prediction: Last year was LaSalle’s year, while no Division I team has separated themselves yet this year Moeller looks to be the cream of the crop. Expect Moeller to win a close game.
·         Withrow vs Arlington Country Day (FL): The Tigers travel to Morgantown, WV for the weekend to play two games with the perennially loaded Arlington CD being their first opponent. Arlington boast 8 Division I prospects on their team, although they recently lost their most talented player in top 50 nationally ranked senior Torian Graham leaving the school. While they struggled on Monday in a loss to Taft the Tigers are very talented and if their stars can get their confidence back this game will be very close.
o    Prediction: Arlington CD wins in a thriller.
·         Taft vs Aiken: A Falcons home-game that will be played at Withrow in another heavyweight opponent for Aiken. The Falcons were blown out early last time, but have made some improvements. Taft looks near unbeatable in the city, and Aiken has yet to get over the hump and beat a big name team.
o    Prediction: Taft wins comfortably.
·         Summit @ Lockland: The only team that has tested Summit so far this season will try and pull the upset on their home-court the second time around. With Tommy Kreyenhagen healthy for Summit it seems unlikely.
o    Prediction: Summit

·         Winton Woods @ Norwood

·         Oak Hills @ Fairfield
