Top five teams from two different classes collide in the highlight game in the girls’ basketball top 10 schedule for Wednesday. Grandview is ranked 3rd in 5A and sits alone atop the Centennial while #4 Mullen (4A) is tied with Cherry Creek and Cherokee Trail in second place.
Since Cherry Creek and Cherokee Trail also face off tonight, that winner will be alone in second if Grandview moves past Mullen as expected. Byers beat Stratton/Liberty before Christmas in their lone league contest.
Elsewhere, #6 Genoa Hugo (1A) hosts Byers in a make-up game from last Friday. The host Pirates already have a league loss to Limon so another drops them out of the Union Pacific chase.
In Class 4A, #5 Evergreen needs a win over third place Green Mountain to keep pace with D’Evelyn atop the Jeffco. Green Mountain is 3-1 and one game back of the two leaders.
