: Granada has many weapons off the bench coach Jarod can go to. Fairfax is currently the defending champs. Very talented program. This should be a great game. Granada may not be as fast as Lair but they push the ball well. They also have talented shooters as well. This game should be worthy of a championship game. No. 1 and 2 seeds going at it.
: : : :
: : : : The key to this game is Lair. She is by far the fastest person on the court. One on one no one can stop her. Granada has to sit in zone, pack the right side of key and use length of Aiden to try and make Lair alter her shot. Then Granada has to crash boards and not give Fairfax second shots. Also, if they slow Lair going to hoop, they need to rotate to weak side and check Delph at the arc or they will get picked apart from there.
: : : : Offensively, Granada cannot count on Mitchell and Berfield to be as hot as they were last Saturday. They need to be patient and run their sets all the way through to get good open shots. They have a height advantage, so utilizing their bigs more than usual would be a good tactic.
: : : : Another key for Granada is health of Miranda. She left game on Saturday and was on bench with ice wrapped on ankle. They need her to be big on boards and help clog the middle against Lair.
: : : : In the end, if I'm Granada, I slow the game down as much as I can. No quick shots except layups. The lower the score the better for them. If they can keep the score in the 40's, I'll go Granada. If it's in the 60's, then it's Fairfax.
: : : Fairfax has only scored in the 40s twice this year. 46 against Carson and 48 against Redondo Union
: : : Granada wins his game hands down. Stop trying to hype up Fairfax like they’re unbeatable. They’re going down like a ton of bricks. Good night Fairfax
If Granada tries to run with Fairfax, it won't go well. Granada as more depth and better shooting. They need to take advantage of it and run their sets, be patient, and knock down open shots.
