Crusaders New Years Invitational Girls Green Bracket
This bracket has a few decent teams but we believe the best two teams in this bracket will be on opposite sides as Burns is a Top 4 3A basketball team and Salem Academy probably has the best chance to be second best out of all the other competition. Burns should run away with this bracket as the next best team is ranked #14 3A.

This bracket seems to have more competition and some closer games as Cascade Christian, Horizon Christian, Gervais, and Amity are all quality teams. The best team in this bracket is a 2a team as Gervais is 8-0 and already beat Santiam (2a) and Blanchet handly earlier in the year.
We wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a Horizon Christian vs Gervais Tournament Title game.

Predicting we will see Kennedy play Sutherlin for the Championship in this bracket but look for Oregon Episcopal to play tough as they look to be a top 10 3a team. Sutherlin will essentially play an 8-1 Portland Christian team who has found alot of success early on in the season but look for Sutherlin to win that game by 15+ and play a great Kennedy team for the Championship in the Silver Bracket.

This bracket will probably have little competition in the first round outside of Cascade Christian playing Oregon Episcopal. That game especially should be the best game in round one out of the 3a teams. However, expect Cascade Christian to still win by 10+. The next round will most likely bring you the Champion in this bracket as Dayton looks to avenge a loss last week to Cascade Christian. We are guessing Blanchet will reach the championship game on the other side and give Dayton at least a good look in the first half before Dayton pulls away.

This bracket has a good mix of 3a and 2a teams, Santiam (2a) and Columbia Christian (2a) will hold their own and most likely appear in the championship game on one side of the bracket. However, the other side is a good Nyssa team taking on Amity a team that is moving in the right direction after a big win over Warrenton. Amity as of right now is probably playing the best out of anyone in 3a and look for them to have a great weekend.

This bracket is possibly the weakest bracket out of all of them as Sutherlin is easily the best team on the upper side of the bracket and Salem Academy should be in the Championship if they play as well as they did on Monday when they beat Top 5 ranked Creswell. Expect the Championship to be Sutherlin vs Salem Academy and look for that to be a low scoring affair.
