JB's Tuesday Night Picks

By: JB Burgin

After the first week of the season CPHR seen a whole lot of surprises, while some things have stayed the same.  Let's take a quick peek at some of the top games coming up on Tuesday. After last weekend I’m ahead at 2-1.

West High at Lakota East:

JB says Dorian Jordan is
the key for Princeton on Tuesday.
 Can the veteran leadership of the Mustangs handle the hostile environment at East? Both Teams have good size but I would give the edge to the Thunderhawks. Look for the Mustangs to dictate tempo and look to score early and often in this match-up. On the other hand, look for the Thunderhawks to be patient with the ball handle the pressure of the Mustangs and execute on offense.  This could be the game of the night, so look for a good one.  Let's see who will come out on top.  The Thunderhawk's are led by Alex White, Stedman Lowry, Myo Baxter and Robbie Harpring.  The Mustangs are led by Marquez Carpenter, Kevin Bracy-Davis and Will Clifton.  Look for sophomore point guard Dejuan Sherman to really step up in this game if the Mustangs are looking to come away with a victory.

Pick: Lakota East 72-60

Winton Woods at Roger Bacon:

Roger Bacon, coming off a thumping of Finneytown, looks to defend their home court against the Warriors of Winton Woods.  Carlas Jackson, Erik Edwards, and Austin Frentsos are looking to battle against one of the deepest and most talented teams in the city. Winton Woods is coming off a 71-59 victory over Centerville where Ronnie Rousseau erupted for 38 points, look for him to keep his aggressiveness. Kwan Cheatham, Trent Donald, Latrell Tidwell and Martin Jones will complete the scoring for the Warriors. Coach Gillespie will look to get more balanced scoring out of his squad, but it's been seen already that Rousseau is a force to be reckoned with.

Pick: Winton Woods 80-65

Elder at Princeton:

In the season opener for both teams Coach Anderson of the Vikings looks to his guard play, mainly Dorian Jordan a three-year starter and a flat-out winner, to make enough plays to win the game. Look for contributions from Jordan Bradley, Deiontay Waiters Darius Hilson and wing Eric Tivis for the Vikings. The Panthers and Coach Schoenfield are happy to have the services of Devin Pike, after sitting out last year because of the transfer rule.  His frontcout mate of junior Taylor Lee will be needed this year to compete within the GCL. 

Pick: Princeton 55-43


  1. Can we get results with these picks, or is this website going under

  2. I'm not sure what you mean by, "going under", but this website is still very much operational. Both writers, Corey and JB, are deeply involved with multiple outside projects, and thus have limited time to update this site. We do the best we can to bring coverage to this site, something that we get absolutely zero compensation for.

    Scoreboards every night take an immense time commitment, something that neither one of us has at this time, so for the time being you're going to have to rely on the Enquirer for scores after games.

    We'll continue to bring you as much content as we can every time we have some free time to work.

    Thanks for reading,
