1A Boys pregame: Great Falls vs. Hemingway

WHO: Great Falls Red Devils vs. Hemingway Tigers

WHEN: Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

WHERE: Colonial Life Arena

INTERNET BROADCAST: www.schsl.tv

RECORDS: Great Falls 24-1, Hemingway 25-2

COACHES: John Smith, Great Falls; Barry McFadden, Hemingway

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

This should be a contrast in styles. The Tiger will press from opening tip until final buzzer. They go 12-deep, so fatigue should not be a factor. Great Falls will try to get the ball to Torrey Craig when possible. The Red Devils play about 10 players, so they hope they can stand up to the constant pressure by the Tigers. Hemingway would like to see the game played in the 80's but Great Falls will try to keep it in the 60's.

BOTTOM LINE

Finally these two teams get a chance to play for the title without the presence of Calhoun County. This could end up being the closest boy's game of the weekend. Hemingway should come out on top as long as Craig doesn't go for crazy on the offensive end.
