Tomorrow’s boys’ varsity matchup between Northern and Leonardtown looks as if though it will come down to the wire if both defenses control the game. Leonardtown is averaging 35 points a game while Northern is averaging 55 points a game. While the points per game category goes to Northern there are two other crucial stats that could play a big role in determining who wins this game. The first stat is rebounds, Leonardtown is averaging 19 rebounds per game while Northern is averaging 21 rebounds per game. With these two team’s rebounds per game being so close I expect each team to battle for every rebound. The team that is more aggressive on the boards will most likely win this crucial stat and the game. However, who wins this game could also come done to which team is able to get the most points in transition. Most transition points are caused by the defensive team being aggressive and stealing the ball, the steals per game differential between Leonardtown and Northern is also very close Leonardtown averaging 6 steals per game while Northern is averaging 11 steals per game. Northern leads each of the three stats we looked at however the margin between both the rebounds per game and steals per game are close. That is why I expect tomorrow’s game to come down to the wire and be won by the team that is more aggressive on defense throughout the entire game.
