GIRLS BASKETBALL: Schedule/Results 2-20-13
Wednesday draws the focus on the Centennial conference where top ranked Grandview has a chance to clinch the outright championship. But it won’t be easy as the Wolverines host 7th ranked Arapahoe who sits two games out of first but in a second place tie with 6th ranked Cherry Creek. The Bruins also face Grandview on Friday so they need Arapahoe to get a win tonight to keep them in the championship discussion.
Grandview won the first meeting over Arapahoe (65-48) when the Warriors were unbeaten and ranked number one in the state. Natasha Edge netted 21 points to lead four players in double figures. The Wolverines then crushed Cherry Creek 56-29 five days later to take control of the Centennial chase. Cherry Creek will be favored on the road at Overland and if Arapahoe loses then the Bruins can move into sole possession of second place entering their season finale with Grandview on Friday.
Neither Cherokee Trail nor Mullen is in line for the Centennial championship but tonight's battle between the two is extremely important to the Mustangs playoff chances. They drop into the 4A ranks for the post-season but to qualify they must finish fourth in the conference. The Mustangs and Cougars are currently tied for that position but since Mullen lost the first meeting, they're almost in a must win situation to keep playing past this week.
