Lynn English vs. Braintree (5:45 Monday the 10th)
Pre-tournament picks - Lynn English vs. Braintree. The two best girls teams in the state, easy to pick this match-up.
Overview - We finally get to settle the debate. We have had Lynn English as our #1 team since our Top 20 polls came out in January and Braintree has been #1 in the other media polls. This game is for the Division 1 State Championship. We know that a state trophy will not be handed to the winner but they might as well, as whoever wins this game will be the heavy favorite at the DCU. This game comes down to guard play. Ashley Russell keys Braintree's attack while Lynn English counters with combo guard Catherine Stinson, Deondra Woumn, and Deidre Newsom. Braintree's size will have to neutralize the speed and driving ability of Lynn English if they want to win. One of the more anticipated girls basketball match-ups in a long time, we think the Lady Bulldogs win in a classic.
Our Pick - Lynn English
