Three Games With Meaning



SEEDING IMPLICATIONS GAME OF THE NIGHT
No. 6 Las Cruces (3-3) v. No. 16 Santa Teresa (6-2)
The Bulldawgs come into the contest, on paper, as a heavy favorite with the depth and talent on the roster. Led by NMPreps.com Mr. Basketball candidate Kai Williams the Bulldawgs will meet their match in the paint and will need to crash the boards as the Desert Warriors bring a team that thrives off second chance opportunities. The battle is in the paint.
The win as many implications and both teams could use this win to boost their seed come March. The Desert Warriors could benefit greatly pulling this upset off.

TOP-25 BATTLE ZONE GAME
No. 17 St Michaels (3-1) v. No. 23 Bernalillo (4-3)
The Horsemen of St. Michael's lost a close game to Bernalillo District foe Capital High School, you can bet they will try and avoid another loss. The game will be a mixture of playing styles as the Horsemen tend to slow it down while the Spartans love to put points on the scoreboard. I think the Spartans in a lower paced game as the Horsemen will try and do could very well still shoot the Horsemen out of the gym.

SMALL SCHOOL MUST WATCH
Tularosa Wildcats vs. Dexter Demons
The Dexter Demons won round one with the defending 2A champs in last weeks J. May Classic and could do it again but this one once again could turn into a battle field. The last game was very physical and intense. It is a great match-up for anyone in the area.

CLASSIFICATION CLASH GAMES


Deming Wildcats vs. Silver Colts: The two teams in the Southwest corner of Deming seems to be a good rivalry between 4A Deming and 3A Silver. The Deming Wildcats however could run away early with this one as they are fighting for a top seed in the State Tournament.

Kirtland Central Broncos vs. Shiprock Chieftains: The surprising favorite in this one is Shiprock as they have been off to a solid start this season and could be looking at a top seed in 3A basketball again this season. The Broncos are off to a below average start of what we projected them to be.
