Cheery Creek Holiday Classic 2015 Preview



1:00 Pine Creek  vs Highlands Ranch

Quinten Gutierrez leads the Pine Creek Eagles to take on Jack Fiddler and the Highlands Ranch Falcons. This game will come down to who can control the pace of play and the paint.

2:30 Thomas Jefferson vs Legend

Legend is 1-2 it is last three games and TJ is coming off a loss to Cherokee Trail.  Both teams have the potential to be in the Top10 of their respective classes.

4:00 Lincoln vs Fountain Ft. Carson

A nice match up between Lincoln’s Umar Jalloh and FFC’s Djimon O’neal


1:00  Fountain Ft. Carson vs Highlands Ranch

FFC will has a couple of quick guards that should give Highlands Ranch sophomore guard Tyson Gilbert a good test.

2:30 Legend vs Pine Creek

On paper Legend should be able to win this one fairly handily but you never know what will happen once the ball is tipped.

4:00 Lincoln vs Cherry Creek

This has the makings of being the top game of the three days. Creek has played well recently and Lincoln has underrated players.


1:00 Thomas Jefferson vs Fountain Ft. Carson

Sophomore Xavier Henry is averaging nearly a double-double per game and will need that aggressiveness against FFC.

2:30 Lincoln vs Legend

Lincoln and Legend could also be the game of the tournament. There are some good match ups across the board.  Washington vs Matticks, Jalloh vs Garrick, Davilla vs McCord but Melendez vs Porter might be the decider in this one.

4:00 Pine Creek vs Cherry Creek

The Eagles will be a bit undersized in this match up and will need to shoot the ball very well and out position the Bruins for rebounds.
