November 30th- Season Record 0-0
Chaparral vs Valor – This is an interesting matchup, as most will be with Valor moving into the 5A ranks. Chap is no stranger to tough game playing in the Continental league and this game will surely test them. Valor will bring a talented group of players led by Kindyll Wetta. On paper they appear to be not as deep as Chaparral but seem to have edge in talent. I see a tight game with Valor coming out on top 48-40 with too much Wetta for Chaparral to handle.
Ralston Valley vs Arapahoe – An interesting matchup with Ralston Valley licking their wounds received during a season opening throttling at the hands of 2 time state champions Grandview. There is no shame as Grandview is tough again this year. Ralston will need to find a consistent scoring threat to have any success this year. They lost a lot of size and must learn to play with the size they have now. Arapahoe is consistently a quality squad that is well coached and protects the basketball. It should be no different tonight on their home court. I give Ralston the edge tonight 58-52.
