Who will win this week's SFL mega matchup

Woodcreek visits Oakmont with league lead on the line
-A +A

With the depth of talent in Sierra Foothill League boys basketball, it seems that every week brings another huge "game of the year" matchup.

As the season reaches the final two weeks, this week's battle will put someone in position to control its own destiny on the way to a potential league crown.

Woodcreek beat Oakmont on its home court a few weeks ago as the Vikings could not finish after hanging very close into the fourth quarter, but the Timberwolves have lost their last two games. Obviously the absence of 6-foot-11 center Mike Kurtz in the Del Oro contest had a huge impact, but Woodcreek has not been as dominant lately. Can the Timberwolves elevate their game once again?

Oakmont, on the other hand, has been playing sensational basketball, controlling the paint and hitting an amazing percentage from beyond the three-point arc. The Vikings now get to play Woodcreek at their place after losing a preseason tournament game at a neutral site and the prior league meeting across town.

Will the home court advantage and the recent momentum carry Oakmont past Woodcreek Wednesday night?

We won't know for sure until they lace them up, but the next 48 hours belongs to you to speculate and share your opinions on what might happen at what is sure to be a frenzied gym Wednesday night.
