Projected winners in bold (record) miles to The Big House
Saturday March 4 at Mississippi Coliseum
5:00 (G) Region 1 #1 Tupelo (26-3) travels 169 miles vs Region 4 #1 Germantown (28-2) travels 19 miles
Ok this is another tough one to pick. Should I go with the depth of Tupelo or possibly the best player to ever come out of Mississippi in Madison Booker? I know Germantown has was more than just Booker but she just can’t be overlooked with her dominance. I think I’m gonna roll with Germantown in a close game.
7:00 (B) Region 6 #1 Northwest Rankin (25-8) travels 14 miles vs Region 5 #1 Brandon (24-7) travels 16 miles
Coach Luckett said you picked who in the semi game, hold my clip board and watch this! He pulled the massive upset and knocked off the potential Championship favorite. Brandon rolled to get to the big game to make it an all Rankin County Championship game. Brandon has two wins over NW Rankin by the scores of 63-49 and 49-45. Brandon is really good but the Cougars are on fire right now. I see that fire continuing to burn one more game. I’m taking NW Rankin in another close one.
