Thursday's top games to see (1/17)

Huntingdon (8-9, 7-3) at Trenton Peabody (5-11, 1-7) (Boys)

Last season: Huntingdon swept the series (69-64, 59-55)

Players to watch: Huntingdon forward Dylan Poole; Trenton Peabody guard Tyler Gadlen

What to know: Both matchups were close last season between these teams. Expect the same this season. The Mustangs will have to find a way to slow down the hot shooting of Peabody guard Tyler Gadlen. Peabody has struggled with district games, but the Golden Tide have a .500 record outside of district play. Huntingdon is on a three-game winning streak.


Bradford (12-8, 1-7) at Greenfield (12-3, 7-1) (Boys)

Earlier meeting: Greenfield won 68-50

Players to watch: Bradford guard Tyler McCartney; Greenfield guard Tony Robinson

What to know: The Yellowjackets are sitting atop District 14-A along with Union City. Bradford is near the bottom. The Red Devils need a district win badly if they want to climb up the standings. Bradford is 10-1 in non-district games, but the Red Devils need that success to carry over into district play. Greenfield is currently on a three-game winning streak and wants it to continue.
