Games now even more meaningful

Bluefield still atop power rankings; Woodrow 2nd

(Continued)

BECKLEY —

Summers County at Shady Spring (Boys) — The first meeting between these two clubs came down to the wire, with the Bobcats pulling out a 72-67 victory. This time, the Tigers get the game on their home floor.

Fayetteville at Meadow Bridge (Girls)

Class A No. 8 Fayetteville is in the top AP's top 10, and Meadow Bridge believes it should be. This will be a great chance for the Wildcats to prove they belong.

Tuesday

Westside at Shady Spring (Boys)
— The Renegades have won nine straight and are climbing the Class AA rankings. The Tigers, though, would love to pull the upset to try to avenge a 10-point loss in mid-December

Princeton at Greenbrier East (Boys) — The Spartans believe they should be the top seed in the section, thanks to their 17-1 record and their win over Woodrow Wilson in Beckley. But if East is going to have a case, it has to beat the Tigers, the other top team in the section. Woodrow already has a win over Princeton, so East's argument will be weakened if it can't do the same.

Wednesday

Westside at Summers County (Girls)
— Two of the top teams in Class AA will go head-to-head when the No. 6 Bobcats meet the No. 1 Renegades. Summers County, which has been one of the most dominant programs in the state over the last decade, can make a major statement that it will still be a factor with a win over the one-loss Westside team.

Friday

Webster County at Greenbrier West (Boys) — Knocking off the No. 8 team in Class AA would be a great way for the Cavaliers, who recently beat another solid Class AA team in Nicholas County, to show that they belong back among the top teams in Class A.

Saturday

Greenbrier East at Fayetteville (Girls)


The game itself is fairly intriguing, with the No. 8 Class A team hosting Class AAA's No. 1, but if Greenbrier East takes care of business early in the week, it could also have some extra meaning. The Spartans host Capital (today), Man (Wednesday), Musselman (Thursday) and Hedgesville (Friday), but if they can get through that stretch without a loss, they'll be playing for a perfect regular season when they head to Fayetteville.

Woodrow Wilson at MSAC Night of Champions (Boys)

The final pairings are not set in stone, but it's likely that the Class AAA No. 3 Flying Eagles will take on Class AAA No. 1 South Charleston in a championship game that should draw a huge crowd.
