    Covington Catholic/Cooper predictions

    Big game Friday night at NKU, and Round 2 for these titans, both of whom are coming off a loss.

    Can the Colonels avenge the King of the Bluegrass loss? Will Kunkel be playing for the Jags?

    Who comes out on top?

    Hard to predict this without knowing the status of Kunkel.

    I concur. But I will give different predictions just for fun.

    If AK plays for Cooper:
    CovCath by 2

    If AK doesn't play:
    CovCath by 13.

    That's about what I was thinking.

    CovCath by 3 in OT if Kunkel plays; CovCath by 10 if he doesn't play.

    With AK, Cooper.

    Without AK, CCH.

    Gotta wonder how effective AK would be even if he did return. Good luck to both teams

    Query: Will weather impact the game?

    Colonels are a tough team to get a good read on. 3 bigs 6'5, 6'7,and 6'11 and it seems they can't run any offense for them or get much offensive production. That leaves the production to the two guards which is fine when they're both good but if one is off then the Colonels are in trouble. Quick teams give them problems on both ends. We saw that in the last Cooper game especially with Blaine Walters being the 5 for Cooper. If the ball gets pressured they turn it over too frequently.

    Yet if they end up winning the state title it wouldn't shock me. They certainly need to figure out how to guard Cooper when Cooper is fully healthy.

    I am no weather man, but if we get that icing late afternoon/rush hour on Friday, all bets are off. Ice > snow

    The way people freak out at the “Great White Death” I have a feeling this game may not happen... May be many cancellations?

    Does Cooper really want to be in a situation where they have to beat CCH three times straight to make the Sweet 16?

    I have no idea if AK is playing or not but maybe Cooper should treat this one like their recent "scrimmage game" against Highlands.

    I can’t imagine they would not love to win 3.

    Even if AK plays I am going with CovCath in this one.
