There will be a lot of moving parts in today's CBBN 3A district matchup between Southridge and Hanford at 7 p.m. at Hanford High.
Will Falcons post Joe Douglas use his strength to dominate the block, or will the Suns' Brad Scott use his agility to attack the basket? Can Southridge guard Matt Mendenhall return to his big-game form after leading the Suns to state last season, or will Hanford's Bear Braich and Jalen Watson find their shooting stroke?
The teams split their regular-season series with each team winning at home. The Falcons have the home-court advantage, but one of the Suns' biggest wins this season came on the road at Sunnyside.
