District girls hoops preview

Will Lady Devils, ‘Skins meet again?

The stage is set for a very dramatic third meeting of the season in area girls hoops.

When the districts get underway next Monday night, there will be a lot of attention applied to the Class C tournamemnt at Brown City High School.

The host Lady Green Devils, ranked No. 6 in Class C and Sandusky, ranked No. 3, both 18-1, are in opposite brackets and could face each other for a winner-take-all championship game on Friday night.

BC must get by Memphis on Monday and then Mayville in the semis on Wednesday evening to fulfill their part. Meanwhile, Sandusky opens with a dangerous Marlette team and, then, must eliminate New Haven or Dryden on Wednesday. If those things fall into place, a larger, noisier crowd than in the first two meetings will rock the BC gym Friday evening. March Madness, though, is filled with upsets along the way.

The winner from the Brown City district, by the way, heads to Genesee for a likely first round contest against Reese (16-2) or No. 1 ranked New Lothrop (17-1).

Class B at Caro

The Lady Pioneers of Cros-Lex (11-7) are on a mini roll and could find themselves in the championship game. Cros-Lex has a first round bye and meets the Caro/North Branch winner in the semis on Wednesday. Yale (11-7), a team very familar to C-L from BWAC play, or Vassar (14-3) from the GTC West, should emerge from the other bracket into Friday night’s title game.

Class D at CPS

Deckerville, just like the year before, had it rough in the GTC East this winter. Slipping down into the ‘D’ district, though, proved good for the Lady Eagles (8-10) when they captured the district title a year ago.

Deckerville will be favored again but must take care of the ball or a Kingston or a CPS could put an end to its season. The Lady Eagles open with Kingstoin in a semifinal on Wednesday. CPS (8- 10) and Peck (4-14) face off in first round play Monday night. That winner is expected to advance to the championship game. The Tigers of CPS are dangerous when they shoot 30-35% from the floor, but they also have had too many nights under 25%. The Lady Pirates, meanwhile, are coming in with a little momemtum. All four of their wins have come in recent weeks.
