A ton of huge games are being played this week, and several of those do have some power to decide playoff seeding later in the year.

Current Standings:
Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau: 11-1, 6-0
Arcadia: 11-1, 5-1
Westby: 6-6, 3-2
West Salem: 8-6, 4-3
Luther: 3-8, 3-3
Black River Falls: 1-12, 0-6
Viroqua: 1-12, 0-6

Monday, January 14:
Arcadia @ Onalaska - Arcadia has a solid 11-1 record, but their competition hasn’t been that great aside from Westby and West Salem. Onalaska has gone 8-3 including a 14-point loss to Aquinas. Arcadia had a very close first half with Luther, but if they play like the second half of that game, it could be much closer than I expect.
BRF @ Central - Central has had a sub-500 start going 5-8, but they have had their moments including a nice win over Holmen. BRF plays much better than their 1-12 record, but I don’t think they will come close in this game.
Mauston @ Luther - Both of these teams have struggled to find consistent wins this season. Mauston’s single win came to Wautoma, who is currently winless. Luther has yet to get a non-conference win, but I think this will be their first.
Viroqua @ PdC - PdC is currently ranked 7th in D3 and are undefeated including a great win over then-ranked Platteville. To say Viroqua has struggled this season is an understatement. They won their first game, but they can’t find that same success against anyone they play.
West Salem @ Altoona - Both of these teams have had disappointing starts, but they are both trending in the right direction. Altoona is 7-7 in a pretty tough conference that is the Cloverbelt. West Salem is now above .500 again and look to be heating up. This game could be huge in deciding playoff seeding.

Tuesday, January 15:
Adams-Friendship @ Westby - A-F has had an okay year so far at 7-6, but they play in a very easy conference excluding the Dells. Westby is coming off of a 25-point loss to West Salem, but I think they will get a very easy win here.

Thursday, January 17:
Luther @ G-E-T - Luther has had its moments after a tough non-conference losing streak to start the season. G-E-T is continuing to be red-hot on defense, so I think they will have minimal problems against the Knights.
West Salem @ Arcadia - Arcadia won this match-up easily earlier in the season, but the Panthers of West Salem are a much different team now. I think this game depends on how they do against Altoona.
Westby @ BRF - Again, this should be an easier game for Westby.

Saturday, January 19:
Prescott @ G-E-T - This will be a double-header at G-E-T as both boys and girls host Prescott. The Prescott girls are undefeated right now and ranked 9th as of Monday. G-E-T dominated this game last season, and Lexi Wagner had over 50 points. Both teams have improved, so I think it will be a close game.

My Predictions:
Arcadia @ Onalaska
BRF @ Central
Mauston @ Luther
Viroqua @ PdC
West Salem @ Altoona

A-F @ Westby

Luther @ G-E-T
West Salem @ Arcadia
Westby @ BRF

Prescott @ G-E-T

Games of the Week:
There are several great games taking place this week, so I am picking many games.
Arcadia @ Onalaska - Onalaska used to be ranked in D2 while Arcadia has been close to becoming ranked in D3 for a while. A win for either team would likely help boost their prominence in the coaches’ poll
West Salem @ Altoona - Both of these teams have won at least their previous two games and seem to be heating up. This game can have some serious playoff implications depending on how it goes.
West Salem @ Arcadia - West Salem had a rough start while Arcadia had a much hotter start. West Salem seems much better than they were earlier this season, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see either team win here.
Prescott @ G-E-T - This is G-E-T’s second top ten match-up after beating then ranked Bloomer by 14 points a couple of weeks ago. Prescott just recently entered the top ten teams in D3, and they have yet to lose a game after a couple of very close calls. Both teams have made improvements since last season, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this game is decided by single digits.
