It’s a very important night of girls’ basketball as four games involving ranked teams feature league leaders going head-to-head with winners taking over sole possession of the conference lead.
That’s the case in a pair of 2A contests as #2 Sanford battles #10 Sargent for the top spot in the Southern Peaks and #8 Dayspring Christian and Heritage Christian are both unbeaten in the Mile High.
In Class 3A, the winner of #2 Vanguard and #5 St Mary’s takes the Tri Peaks championship while the same is at stake between #10 Academy and Bennett in the Frontier.
A fifth such game can be found outside the rankings and up in the hills as Cotopaxi battles Custer County. Both are unbeaten in the West Central with the winner nabbing the league crown.
Several other games of note that will impact the pecking order for district tournaments as well and four of them are inside the rugged Lower Platte; #1 Holyoke meets Wiggins, #5 Sedgwick County battles Wray and #9 Akron visits Haxtun in 2A while #5 Merino tangles with Yuma in Class 1A.
There’s another a terrific non-conference game between Lutheran (3A) and George Washington (4A). Both are ranked seventh in their respective class and each sits atop their league standings; the Lions are alone in first in the 3A Metro while GW shares the DPL lead with Denver East.
Below is the entire schedule for top 10 teams. We’ll update scores throughout the night and then below the rankings, update some games that impact league championship races. Final scores can be sent to Colorado Preps by text to 970.380.7737.
