Coming into this game, I am 13-3 on the year which shouldn't come to you as a surprise after a dominant football season. Tonight's featured matchup between the West Haven Blue Devils and the Hillhouse Academics should be a fun game and presents a difficult challenge for me.
The last girls' basketball game we covered was West Haven's first loss of the season, just a few nights ago. That was the last game the lady Blue Devils played, and they face a crossroad after their first loss of the season; do they rebound or does the losing streak double?
Hillhouse is normally a strong team in their gym. It also doesn't help that they are one of the more unpredictable teams this year.
West Haven, on the hand, is looking to respond to their first loss of the season in a big way. Speaking frankly, they didn't pose much of a threat for Sacred Heart on Friday. I think if they want to continue their championship aspirations, they need to make a statement to the league, and maybe more importantly, to themselves to remind them of who that 8-0 Blue Devil team was. And do you want to know something? I think they make that statement tonight.
Still undefeated in basketball, I put my 10-0 record on the line to drop a Goralnik Guarantee on the West Haven Blue Devils tonight. I don't know if it will be easy but, in my opinion, they must win tonight to keep the spirit of the season alive and they will.
