Here’s a breakdown of each girls first-round games on Tuesday.
(8) Heritage at (1) Millbrook, 5:30 p.m.
This game shouldn’t be a problem for the Wildcats, who are attempting to go undefeated in the conference regular season and win the conference tournament. Forward Briana Day should have an advantage in the paint with her size and ability to rebound the ball well. Millbrook can also rely on guards Katelyn Mitchell and Alex Tomlinson. Heritage’s only win this season came in one of the eight forfeited games by Enloe
(5) Broughton at (4) Wake Forest-Rolesville, 7 p.m.
This game should be a competitive one that comes down to the fourth quarter. Wake Forest-Rolesville won both games, but Broughton has been improving ever since its team began to get healthy in early February. Guard Justice Byrd is the Caps most versatile player while the Cougars are led by Taylor Walker.
(6) Enloe at (3) Wakefield, 5:30 p.m.
This is by far the most intriguing game of the first round as Enloe needs to win the tournament to make the playoffs. The Eagles have the weapons to do with guards Dana Brown and Mykia Jones. The game is also interesting because the Wolverines were the first team to face the Eagles after they had to forfeit the eight victories. Wakefield beat Enloe in that meeting, and used good defense that led to easy offense.
