After going a perfect 4 for 4 yesterday on my predictions for the West Region Boys Tournament here is what the Sheriff sees in his crystal ball for games on Friday:
Century – Dickinson I see the Red White and Blue bouncing back from a heart breaking loss to Minot and making it to the State Qualifying game on Saturday afternoon.
Legacy – Turtle Mountain I see the Sabers leaving their own legacy against the Braves in this one, recovering from their loss against Mandan on Thursday night while Turtle Mountain did not look good at all against Bismarck High.
Jamestown – Minot It’s pretty tough to pick against Minot, but when you go up against the undefeated and top ranked Blue Jays you are going to have to earn your way to the championship. I see Minot giving Jamestown a run for their money, but in the end the Blue Jays will be chirping on their way back to the Events Center nest weekend.
Bismarck – Mandan Bismarck will outplay Mandan and punch their ticket to next weeks state tournament as the Demons conserved energy in their game against Turtle Mountain and Mandan had to play much harder in their game against Legacy.
Once again, I would like to wish all teams the best of luck today.
