Thursday's top HS games to see (2/21)

No. 3 Greenfield (17-10) at No. 2 Dresden (21-6) (Region 7-A girls’ quarterfinal)

Time: 7 p.m.

Previous meetings: Greenfield won 50-37

Players to watch: Greenfield guard Brittany Peoples; Dresden guard Amy McAlpin

Next opponent: Winner plays the Union City-West Carroll winner

What to know: Greenfield won the earlier meeting, but this time the losers’ season is over. So don’t expect the same type of game out of Dresden. The Lady Yellowjackets have won four of their last five games with the lone loss coming against the No. 1 team in Class A Union City. The earlier loss to Greenfield ended a nine-game winning streak for Dresden. The Lady Lions will look to respond from a loss in the district championship with a win.


No. 4 Lake County (15-10) at No. 1 Gleason (22-7) (Region 7-A girls’ quarterfinal)

Time: 7 p.m.

Previous meetings: Lake County won 58-14 in last year’s region quarterfinal

Players to watch: Lake County guard Tiana Gray; Gleason post Briana Jones

Next opponent: Winner plays the South Fulton-Huntingdon winner

What to know: Lake County won the region quarterfinal easily last year, but the Lady Falcons were ranked in the top five of the state last year with players like T.T. Flowers and Carnation Hart. Lake County is fourth in District 14-A this season with some solid players, but not as strong as last year. Gleason played well in the district tournament to earn the crown and are on a four-game winning streak. The Lady Bulldogs will look to dominate in the post with Briana Jones underneath. Lake County has lost six of its last seven games.
