#1 vs. #2 Prep Basketball Showdown Looms!
This weeks Taco Bell high school basketball game of the week on 630 The Fan will feature 12-0 and top ranked Borah hosting Meridian Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Warriors at 8-5 probably don't have a shot at knocking off the Lions in the Lions Den or do they?
Fridays Borah-Meridian game could be a trap game for the Lions.
Here's why....Saturday night Borah plays at Boise and while the Lions are ranked #1 and undefeated at 12-0, Boise is #2 and 11-1 with home court advantage. The back to back games make it tough on any team to "take one game at a time" but when you consider the magnitude of Saturdays tussle at Boise gym, the Lions might just try and ease past Meridian and that's how trap games become trap games.
I'm not one who thinks the Lions will get snared in a trap game but the Warriors are a decent 8-5 and on a given night can play with anyone so with that in mind I'm excited to call the game Friday.
Now remember, all the pressure isn't just on Borah because Boise has a Friday game against Kuna and they too could get caught looking ahead to their showdown with Borah 24-hours down the road.
The weekly AP Prep basketball poll will be released on Wednesday but you can expect Borah-Boise to be one/two thus setting the stage fro an interesting Friday and Saturday of high school hoops.
