You are thinking, I must really be bored. If not now, maybe halfway through these scenarios. I am not brave enough to guarantee 100% accuracy, but the math gene in my DNA makes something like this impossible to resist. Possibilities follow standings.
First, Wednesday night’s results. West Columbus edged Red Springs in the second day of back to back games 45-43. The sweep of the Red Devils earned the Vikings Boys a second-place regular season finish. West Columbus trailed by one point entering the final quarter before outscoring Red Springs 12-9. Jake Brownlee scored 19 points and gathered in 13 rebounds. The Vikings dominated the glass, outboarding the Red Devils 36-17.
The Red Springs girls outscored West Columbus 26-7 in the final period to break away to a 55-34 win. West Columbus faces a “must win” situation at home against East Columbus Friday to have a chance to advance to the playoffs.
Fairmont’s boys placed six players in double figures in their 91-57 win over West Bladen. West Bladen edged the Golden Tornado girls 58-54.
