Bounce’s Picks for the Week of December 12

And it just keeps running and running and running. The weeks are flying by. 

My picks come a day late but that only gave me more time to pick more games. 

Last week: 10-6

2022-23 record: 50-21 (.704)


Eastside at Lakewood Park, Tuesday

Both teams have been up and down to start the season, so both need a win to help find some consistency. BOUNCE PICKS EASTSIDE

Bishop Luers at Culver Academy, Tuesday

The Knights have played well to start in the first year under Seth Coffing. They have a common opponent and both have won over Northrop. BOUNCE PICKS BISHOP LUERS

Carroll at Wayne, Friday

The Chargers have shown that they are inching back to their program standards but the Generals have shown they are for real. BOUNCE PICKS WAYNE

East Noble at Columbia City, Friday

The Eagles were unproven outside of Andrew Hedrick but Stratton Fuller has become a strong second option. The Knights will battle but won’t be able to keep up. BOUNCE PICKS COLUMBIA CITY

Concordia at Bishop Dwenger, Friday

Defense will be on display in this one, keeping it close all the way until the final seconds. The Cadets have proven the ability to pull out those types of games. BOUNCE PICKS CONCORDIA

North Side at Snider, Friday

The Legends have won three straight after losing its first two of the season. Jordan Green will be too much for the Panthers to stop inside. BOUNCE PICKS NORTH SIDE

Homestead at Bishop Luers, Friday

Homestead can win even when it’s without one of its top players. The Spartans’ depth will take over in the end. BOUNCE PICKS HOMESTEAD

West Noble at Central Noble, Friday

The Chargers have lost six straight to the Cougars. But this time West Noble has the better team and the best player on the floor. BOUNCE PICKS WEST NOBLE

Woodlan at Adams Central, Friday

The Warriors have relied on several different guys to get off to a 5-1 start. Can they keep it up to take down the favorites to win the ACAC? Not so fast my friend. BOUNCE PICKS ADAMS CENTRAL

Blackhawk Christian vs. Chesterton, Saturday

This is an intriguing one for the Braves at the Characters of Champions Classic at Grace College. The Trojans are one of the top teams in 4A so it’s a good test for Blackhawk. BOUNCE PICKS CHESTERON


Columbia City at Warsaw, Tuesday

The Eagles are getting better as the season goes. They scored over 70 in their last five games. Good luck slowing them down. BOUNCE PICKS COLUMBIA CITY

Norwell at Woodlan, Tuesday

The Knights were beaten pretty badly on their home floor by Columbia City on Friday. After their only other loss this season, they blitzed their next opponent. BOUNCE PICKS NORWELL

Huntington North at Bishop Dwenger, Wednesday

It feels like two teams heading in opposite directions. BOUNCE PICKS HUNTINGTON NORTH

Lakeland at Angola, Wednesday

Both teams had higher expectations coming into the season. The Hornets’ defense is still pretty strong and will be the difference. BOUNCE PICKS ANGOLA

Carroll at Wayne, Friday

I went with both teams to pick up wins last week and was let down by both. Bounce is more confident in his pick this week. BOUNCE PICKS CARROLL

Snider at Fairfield, Saturday

Last season, this was an intriguing game that got out of hand. The Falcons are better this time around and should be able to keep it closer this time around. Snider still has too much firepower. BOUNCE PICKS SNIDER

Jay County at South Adams, Saturday

The last two unbeatens in the ACAC. But it feels like there’s a big gap between No. 1 and 2 in the conference. The Patriots will show us just how big that gap is. BOUNCE PICKS JAY COUNTY
