Wednesday is normally a quiet night for Top 10 basketball teams but that’s not the case this week as 14 games involving ranked teams are on the schedule. And two of them pit a ranked team against another. Those two are both important league matchups as #6 Manual tangles with #8 Jefferson Academy in the Class 3A Metro and #2 Smoky Hill battles #6 Grandview inside the 5A Centennial.
In Class 4A, top ranked Lewis Palmer plays host to a Vista Ridge team coming off an upset of #5 Cheyenne Mountain and #2 Longmont is challenged by in-city rival Longmont. In Class 3A, #2 Coal Ridge looks for a tenth straight win to open the season as they begin play in the Western Slope at home against Basalt. The one game in Class 1A is important to post-season bracketing as #1 Cornerstone Christian takes on Longmont Christian. Cornerstone is unbeaten while Longmont Christian continues an important stretch where they’ve split games with 2A league rivals Heritage Christian (W) and Dawson (L).
