    University Heights/Madisonville predictions

    Game is tonight at Blazer Gym. The Blazers won in convincing fashion last year at Madisonville.

    I'm picking heights 85-75. I just don't think that Madisonville has the athleticism to stay in front of the Blazers. And you can't pack a zone in against them. Really tough team to defend.

    The Blazers are also honoring Greg Buckner - State Champion, Former ACC player of the year at Clemson and 13 year NBA Veteran. They will be retiring his #. He is currently an assistant for the Memphis Grizzlies. For a town our size we've produced some great players. But I'd say he's the best ever. And one of the best ever from the state. I'm a Tiger but I respect what he's done and what that program has done in terms of producing great players and people.

    I think it's special that he gets to have his # retired while the all time leading scorer and best player since Buckner is at Heights. (I know, hot take, I think tandy is better than Hopson).

    This is a regional tournament type game

    Both teams coming off a tough game against a rival with only one day of rest in between. It's all about who can get up for the game.

    Blazers with the home court advantage 82-69

    I don't feel this game will be as close as the Hopkinsville game. UHA by double digits.
