There are some big games in the area to open up districts tonight, headlined by the Flint Powers game against rival Goodrich.
Here are my predictions:
Flint Powers over Goodrich by 18: The Chargers are too fast, too talented. Junior Javontae Hawkins is coming into his own of late.
Swartz Creek over Grand Blanc by two: The Dragons are playing their best basketball of the season, coming off a dominating performance against Flushing. Grand Blanc has more talent, top to bottom, but the Dragons are tough defensively.
Flint Beecher over Flint Hamady by 15: This is not the rivalry of old. Hamady has won a lot of games this season, but the GAC is down compared to years gone by. Beecher’s guards are just way too tough.
Clarkston over Fenton by eight: I’d consider picking Fenton in this spot, but they will be forced by injury to play without one of their stars — junior forward Ryan Hickoff. This is not the Clarkston of the recent past, but they are still really solid.
