Stage is Set For First Class GMC Girls Basketball Showdown

02/08/2018

Arguably Cincinnati's best girls basketball matchup is now set.  In the last game of the regular season, the Mason Comets 14-1 in the GMC will host arch rival the Lakota West Firebirds 15-0 in the GMC for ultimate bragging rights for the 2017-18 season.  Both programs bring a high intensity, wall to wall basketball style, featuring two of Ohio's outstanding players. Sammie Puisis (17.6 ppg), a Florida State commit leads the Comets charge, while Abby Prohaska (15 ppg), a University of Notre Dame signee, will do likewise for the Firebirds. 

In the first meeting of the year, the Firebirds bested the Comets 51-50 at Lakota West, handing Mason their only league loss.  Playing demanding out of conference schedules, Mason comes into the contest with an overall record of 18-3 and the Firebirds sport a 20-1 record. With the OHSAA Sectional Tournament on the horizon, the Firebirds earned a #1 seed position while the Comets were seeded #3.

The Mason Comets will be fighting for a home court victory which will earn them a GMC co-championship, while a Firebird victory will assure them of an outright GMC Girls Basketball title.  Regardless, this shapes up to be a "can't miss" exhibition of outstanding basketball.  The Lakota West Firebirds have won or shared the GMC Basketball title for the past three years, with Mason earning a co-championship in 2016-17.

Game time: 2:00 PM at Mason Middle School Arena!
