Grine: Outside Looking In
1. How good is Sandia?: The Matadors move to 8-0 on the season and stay perfect but can they keep it up? The Matadors barely squeezed a win over the Lady Hornets of Highland who have yet to win a game.
2. Are the Lady Braves Legit?: The Santa Fe Indian Lady Braves win again in convincing fashion over a top-25 team but could the 3A school be among the best in the state? The coach has fire, the players can hoop, can the mid-major big school division team be one of the best in the state, I think they could.
3. Looking for answers?: 5A hoops on the Ladies side could have three or four very good teams but is there a battle in the middle? I could see many teams fighting for that Final Four this season. Manzano getting upset, Rio Rancho up and down and Cibola an in-betweener.
