I wish I could cover at least three games Friday night.
I am covering the West Allis Central at Brookfield Central in the battle for first place in the Greater Metro Conference between two 8-2 teams - one hot, the other's not.
The Lancers (13-4 overall) are riding a two game losing streak after winning 8 in a row. The Bulldogs (12-4) have won three in a row and 8 of 9 games (with a forfeit win over Falls).
The Bulldogs lost a 53-49 decision to the Lancers the first time around at WAC. WAC's Najeal McMillian had 21 points and the Lancers' Riley LaChance had 17.
I made a prediction about the Bulldogs a couple weeks ago. Check out the link to my column.
Tosa East is 7-3 and Menomonee Falls and Marquette are beginning to wake up. Sussex Hamilton (4-6) and Brookfield East (4-6) all can beat anyone on any given night.
Both New Berlin Eisenhower (10-2) and New Berlin West (10-3) are in first place in the Black and Blue Divisions. Whitnall (10-3) is tied for first with Ike and Pewaukee (9-3) is a half game behind the Vikings.
Ike hosts Pewaukee on Friday and West travels to South Milwaukee (8-4).
Black Division leader Eisenhower's girls (14-0, 12-0) travels to first-place Pewaukee (11-1, 13-2) of the Blue Division on Saturday at 7 p.m. This is a huge test for the Lions who are just murdering the weak teams in the Woodland and have few games against good competition.
New Berlin West's girls (10-3, 11-5) have put together a good run - 6 conference wins in a row - and they host South Milwaukee on Friday (9-3, 9-4).
Buckle your seat belts.
