I’m about ready to head up to Newton to see what I believe is the best first-round tournament game — Salina South vs. Andover Central. I haven’t seen the Jaguars yet this season, so I’m looking forward to that. I have seen Salina South and was very impressed with Adrianna Franch. She’s such a tough inside player and she gets to the free-throw line — where she capitalizes.

Bishop Carroll opens play here in about two hours at the Kapaun Mount Carmel tournament, and Don Racine will likely win his 500th game today. What an accomplishment. As I’ve said before, Racine’s one of my favorites – a little scary sometimes, but I know he’s just a big teddy bear. Not that he would ever admit that.

McPherson starts up today, as well. I wonder about that Goddard-Andale game. Goddard is definitely depleted with injuries, including losing Samantha Soyez for the season. While Lindsey Keller is one of the state’s best and certainly much taller than any Andale player, I’m not sure if it will be enough. Should be a close game.

So where will you be? What game are you keeping your eye on?

    Sadly I will not be able to make the Goddard-Andale game however I will be outfitted with score updates and paying close attention. Kjia Hart has had a few high scoring games here and there, she’s just a sophomore and needs more experience in order to help fill the void of losing Soyez. Lindsay Keimig is another player that I can see stepping up, she has a good 3 point shot, she just needs more experience. Keller will be Stellar as usual. Hopefully the girls can overcome yet another key player lost to injury
