|Can Rams get a big W at Dunbar?|
Trotwood (10-1) @ Dunbar (7-4)
Can Trotwood continue its torrid pace and defeat the Wolverines in their home? They have been dominant in this early season, but winning in the Wolverines gym is no easy task, even for the best of teams.
This game could be a classic, as 2 of the premiere HS Sports programs in the state will battle it out.
"HYPE FACTOR": 5 out of 5
Meadowdale (10-4) @ Wayne (11-0)
The Lions have been rolling, and have had a very good season to date...Now they will be tested on all levels as they take on the Reigning big school State champs.
Wayne has dominated nearly every opponent this season, and they have been tested from jump. Not to mention they continue to break records, win awards, and swagg it out in the process.
Meadowdale has the talent to match up with Wayne; Coach Dwayne Chastain and staff have done an excellent job of preparing the team, and keeping them motivated.
But can they match the intensity, skill level, excellent coaching and show the composure of playing the best team in the state?
"HYPE FACTOR": 5 out of 5
C-J (10-2) @ Thurgood (5-7)
In a game that features a coach pitting himself against his former school (Coach Darnell Hoskins) as the Eagles will take on the Cougars.
Hoskins was a star guard at C-J, leading the Eagles to a State berth and eventually garnered a scholarship to play for Wisconsin & UD before playing pro ball. He's considered one of the greatest players to come out of C-J.
Thurgood has been up and down this season, but lately they have started to hit on all cylinders, and boast a 4-1 record in the much respected Dayton City League.
Getting big man Evan Clayborne back will be key for the Cougars.
The Eagles lost a heartbreaker to Alter last Friday, but have been dominant for the most part this season.
Chaminade are reached the State Semis last year, and have a team who could make another run this year.
"HYPE" FACTOR: 4 out of 5
