Adams Central Flying Jets (1-4) at Bellmont Braves (4-1), Tuesday, November 21st, 7:30 p.m. (Broadcast live on WZBD, 92.7 FM)
The loss to Woodlan seems like a distant memory for the Bellmont Braves, who are now back at full strength and in much better shape as a team. Coach Andy Heim’s team has been awfully impressive in the four games since, winning by an average of 20 points.
The Braves seem to have the advantage in this game, but the schedule becomes much more difficult after Thanksgiving when the conference schedule begins. Bellmont will likely be in the conversation for a 3A state ranking next week if they can take care of the Jets Tuesday night.
For Adams Central, the Jets finally got their first win on the road against Northfield this past weekend. The Jets held the Norsemen to just 38 points.
Bellmont has won nine in a row over the Jets, with the last Adams Central victory in the series coming in the Braves’ winless 2013-14 campaign.
Players to Watch
Adams Central’s Ava Stafford will be key to Adams Central’s attack. She will need to knock down some jump shots if the Jets are to stay in this game.
Audrey Eisberg will have a difficult task in defending the Braves’ post players, mainly Hailey Cole and Kamryn Jarvis, but Bellmont’s Emily Bleke could be primed for a big game, especially if the home team creates turnovers and gets the Jets in transition.
