Can Anyone Stop the Red Hot Lincoln Southwest Silver Hawk
By Will Cummings
What a difference a week makes as the three-time defending Class A State champion Central Eagles drop two games out out of three and appear to be headed in the wrong direction at the wrong time. Losing three of their last four games, the Champs are reeling like a punch drunk boxer as they fall all the way down to the No. 7 spot in this week’s poll. Can the Eagles recover and find a way to stop the bleeding or will this be a year where Coach Eric Behrens doesn’t make his annual pilgrimage down to Lincoln?
Speaking of Lincoln, that’s where the best high school basketball in the state is being played right now, and there is no better example than red hot Lincoln Southwest. Coach Duanne Baack’s Silver Hawk have burned fifteen in a row into the win column–can anyone put out this inferno? The only other team in the state delivering Silver Hawk-type-heat is undefeated (20-0) Class C Chadron who holds onto the No. 9 spot.
Finally, kudos to Coach Kenyon Sharp of Burke and Coach Tyler Cerveny of Benson for climbing back into the Top Ten at No. 8 and No.10 respectively.
Next week’s poll will be the last one until after the State Tournament.
