PREP BOYS BASKETBALL PREDICTIONS: Redskins vex roundball swami

GOSHEN —  The hometown Goshen Redskins tripped me up twice last week during a 16-5 week (76.2 percent) in high school boys basketball predictions.

Missed calls were Goshen over Westview, South Bend St. Joseph over Goshen, Angola over West Noble, Jimtown over Fairfield and Elkhart Central over Elkhart Christian.

The year-to-date mark is now 142-65 (68.6).

Friday

West Noble at Goshen ­— The Redskins were 66-50 winners over West Noble last season and have taken eight of the last nine meetings between the two schools. Goshen has a 7-0 record versus common opponents this season while the Chargers are 5-3. It’s the final home game for Redskin seniors Jesse Good, Austin Henke and Sam Stegelmann and the team will want to send them out on a winning note. Goshen.

Fairfield at Central Noble — This is a rematch of an NECC tournament game that was won by the Fairfield Falcons 49-38 back on Jan. 9. The Falcons have a 14-4 record in recent meetings with the Cougars. In contests with common foes this season, Fairfield is 9-6 and Central Noble 3-9. Fairfield.

Fremont at Bethany — So far this season, Bethany is 0-7 against common opponents while Fremont is 3-5. The BC Bruins were 53-44 winners a year ago to even the series at 8-8 in recent years. Fremont has one of the premier players in the area in senior Tyler Jenkins. Fremont.

Westview at Concord — This is one of the best local examples of the classic big school-small school rivalry. This year Concord is truly the ‘bigger’ squad with a lineup that includes 6-6 Franko House and 6-5 Filip Serwatka. The Minutemen posted a 67-48 victory a year ago to take a 12-3 advantage in recent meetings with the Warriors. Concord may have played a tougher schedule as opponents have a combined mark of 191-177 compared to 162-229 for Westview’s foes. Among the teams both schools have played Concord is 6-0 and Westview 4-2. Concord.

DeKalb at Northridge — The DeKalb Barons, coached by Goshen graduate Jon Everingham, were 37-33 winners over Northridge a year ago and have a 7-3 record in recent meetings with the Raiders.

This could be a close one and playing before the hometown faithful in Middlebury might give the Raiders the advantage. Northridge.

Lakeland at Angola — This looks like another one that could be a thriller. The Lakeland Lakers are 5-13 against common foes this season compared to 6-9 for the Angola Hornets. Lakeland holds a 15-11 advantage in the series in recent years after a 48-25 win a year ago. This one could come down to home court advantage. Angola.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income.
