The Boys’ Basketball Top 10 schedule is a busy one Friday as 35 of 50 teams see action. The list includes a pair of top 10 matchups in Class 5A as #5 ThunderRidge meets #8 Rock Canyon to open the Continental slate and #7 Rangeview entertains #10 Arvada West is a nice non-league contest.
In other games of note across the state, #2 DeBeque (1A) sees their first action of the 2019 as they go on the road against an improved Soroco squad. Also, in 1A, #4 Cheraw begins the quest for a High Plains title as they host McClave.
In Class 2A, #1 Yuma beat Wray 55-45 in the season opener for both clubs and now the two county rivals meet up again for their annual Lower Platte battle.
In 3A, Jefferson Academy was unbeaten starting the week but have dropped two games and now must knock off #6 Manual to stay within a game of the Metro leaders. Manual is coming off a 30-point win over Colorado Academy on Wednesday.
In 4A, most of the top ranked teams are favored to win tonight but #4 Greeley Central and #6 Pueblo West could be in for tough challenges. West continues their run in the Rampart Classic by meeting Valor Christian just one day after falling to Pine Creek 77-70. Greeley Central needs a win over Silver Creek to stay within range of the Northern leaders Longmont and Centaurus. The Wildcats are 1-1 this week with a key league loss to Mountain View.
