Nebraska Boys Basketball State Tournament Preview

It is Nebraska Boys State Basketball Tournament time.  Four area teams have qualified for this weekends action.
    Coverage on SUNNY 101.3 will begin Thursday morning with Class D2 action when 6th ranked Falls City Sacred Heart ( 16-8) takes on 4th ranked Wynot.  ( 22-2)  The game will be played at Lincoln Northeast High School with tipoff scheduled for 10:45 a-m.  Our pre-game coverage should begin about 10:25 a-m.
    Sacred Heart Coach Doug Goltz expects Wynot to press the Irish,  but does not think that should be a problem.  ( play audio  :32 seconds )
    Wynot is led by 6’8” junior Nathan Weisler.  Coach Goltz thinks perimeter defense will be key to stopping the Blue Devils big man.  ( play audio  :43 seconds )
    Game two of the day will also be played at Lincoln Northeast when the Johnson-Brock Eagles ( 19-8)  return to the C2 State Tournament for the second straight year.  The Eagles take on undefeated and top ranked Ravenna led by All Stater Connor Beranek.  Eagles Coach Nick Krenk offered this rundown of the Blue Jays.  ( play audio  1:00 )
    Johnson-Brock plays at 2 p-m and our pre-game coverage will begin at 1:40 p-m.
    Right after the Eagles finish up we switch our coverage to Lincoln East High School where second ranked Pawnee City will begin their quest for a class D1 state title.  The 23-3 Indians take on 7th ranked West Boyd, a team that is 18-5 on the season.  Gametime is 3:45 p-m.
    Coach Tyler Colvin provided a scouting report on the Spartans.  ( play audio  :37 seconds )
    Pawnee City finished third at the state tournament in 2011.  Coach Colvin hopes that experience will pay off this weekend.  ( play audio  :30 seconds )
    We wrap-up day one coverage from Lincoln East with D2 action.  The Sterling Jets ( 18-7) currently ranked third take on 9th ranked Loomis, a squad that is 17-6 on the season.  Gametime is 8:45 p-m with pre-game coverage at 8:25 p-m.
    The Jets have qualified for state for the fourth consecutive season.  Coach Jimmy Motz was not happy about getting beat in the sub-districts and needing a wildcard to get in,  but he thinks the two week break will help his squad.  ( play audio  :46 seconds )
    Coach Motz also provided us with a scouting report on Loomis.  ( play audio  :50 )
    Be sure to be listening today, tonight and this weekend for Nebraska Boys State Tournament action on SUNNY 101.3.
