D1 Boys Quarterfinals

Post  Tuesday and Friday on Sat Mar 14, 2015 11:43 am

Londonderry v Merrimack: Londonderry beat Mack twice this season by 9 points. Conventional wisdom says it's tough to beat the same team 3 times in a season. Others could say there are reasons why Mack is 0 - 2 vs Londonderry and those will be the same reasons at this time tomorrow that Mack will be 0 - 3. Lond, in my opinion, is the only team left in the playoffs that has 3 consistent scorers: Ball, Corey and Coleman. I'm talking legit scoring options. For this reason I'm picking Lond to advance.

Pinkerton v Pembroke: Spartan fans tell me Pemby didn't play well when they lost to Pinkerton 58 to 51 on Jan 9th. Curran and Timbas combined for 76 of the 91 Pembroke points. To get by Pinkerton a 3rd player is going to have to step up offensively for Pembroke. Players NOT named Curran or Timbas can't expect to combine for 16% of Pembroke's points tonight and advance to the final Four. It'll be interesting to see the Astro rotations tonight because I've been flummoxed at previous Astro rotations in other big games. I'm picking Pinkerton.

Spaulding v Bedford: A really nice 4/5 matchup. You have 2 of the better HS coaches in NH for the last 2 decades. These guys really respect each other. A couple of class guys. Darian Berry will be the key tonight. Bedford doesn't have any guards who can cover him. The Bulldogs will have to put a smaller forward on him. I don't know if they have anyone who's quick or strong enough to stay with Berry for 32. If there's anyone who can figue it out it's Fitzy and his "Best asst coach in NH", C. Burke. Red Raiders advance to Final Four.

Trinity v North: The dog prelim game. 10 hosting 15. This could be the closest game of the 4. Both teams will be incredibly hungry to get to Durham now that side of the bracket is busted. Amazing Trinity is the only Queen City school alive after #2 West, #2 Central and #11 Memorial all go down in their respective prelim games. North's 6 - 12 record is very deceiving. They could've easily been a 9 - 9 or 10 - 8 team with a couple of more positive bounces and rolls. A #15 seed getting to the Final Four? 2015 is the year. North wins.
