Varsity Kansas

Sub-state basketball (3-3)

Because I’m procrastinating — I have all-state ballots to type in before the chat from 1-2 p.m. TODAY! — I wanted to talk a little sub-state basketball.

I’m heading to West at Andover Central tonight. I like both teams — both are athletic, both like fast-pace, both can slow it down. Will Andover Central’s overall height advantage be the key? How will Daylin Thomas do down low?

I have to admit I was surprised to see Andale beat Haven. I’m not sure if Scott Hermreck is back for Andale, but I knew he had gotten hurt again. Haven is a good team with Devin Callon, and I would have guessed the team would have gone farther.

How about Rossville girls (six wins) beating Rock Creek (19-0) in sub-state?

Now, I know little about those two teams, but it just goes to show that anything can happen.

Take Junction City and Heights — I would imagine Heights wins this game, but Junction City did beat Highland Park.

Same with Southeast and Derby. Derby has had the better season, but Southeast has beaten Heights, the only Kansas team to do it. So why not?

What other games are possible upsets waiting to happen?
