Bounce’s Picks for week of February 20

So it has been a minute, which means Bounce needs to pick some boys regular season basketball games. This is the final week of the boys regular season so who are some favorites to go into the postseason with some momentum?

2022-23 record: 129-47 (.733)

Concordia at Homestead, Tuesday

The SAC race is over but this should be a great game between two of the conference’s best. Bounce expects a defensive slugfest with the Spartans coming out on top. BOUNCE PICKS HOMESTEAD

Fremont at Westview, Tuesday

The Warriors still have an outside chance at a share of the NECC title. They need a win here and a West Noble loss to Garrett on Friday. One of those two things are more likely to happen than the other. BOUNCE PICKS WESTVIEW

New Haven at Bishop Luers, Tuesday

Two teams that need all the momentum that can get before the postseason hits. Bounce thinks New Haven will find a way to finish. BOUNCE PICKS NEW HAVEN

Prairie Heights at Woodlan, Tuesday

The Panthers seem to be stumbling a bit down the stretch, and the Warriors looked to be finishing the regular season strong before a head-scratching loss to Eastside. Who will pick themselves up for a good win? BOUNCE PICKS WOODLAN

West Noble at Goshen, Tuesday

The Chargers looked like they were easily on their way to their first 20-win season since consolidation, but an overtime loss to Angola over the weekend meant they have to win their next two to get to that 20-win mark before the postseason. Goshen isn’t any easy place to win at, but Bounce is confident the Chargers can rebound. BOUNCE PICKS WEST NOBLE

North Side at South Bend Washington, Thursday

The Legends are definitely contenders to win a sectional title next week and a win over a good Panther squad could be a determining factor in whether or not they’re the favorite. BOUNCE PICKS NORTH SIDE

Carroll at Warsaw, Friday

Carroll needs momentum more than most after losing three in a row all by double digits. The Tigers are a good test for the Chargers and one they should be able to pass. BOUNCE PICKS CARROLL

Columbia City at Concordia, Friday

The Eagles have flipped back and forth between wins and losses for a month. It’ll be tough to break the trend against the Cadets. BOUNCE PICKS CONCORDIA

Homestead at Norwell, Friday

The Knights have lost a little steam down the stretch while the Spartans are putting the pieces together with another potential matchup with Wayne around the corner. BOUNCE PICKS HOMESTEAD
