This week's Maxwell Projections have GAC beating Lovett by 25 points. That projection is absurd. This game is guaranteed to be a lot closer. Granted, the Maxwell Projections are strictly formulaic and free from bias, and are also greatly reliable. But in this particular instance, the projections don't do justice to the Lions and the resiliency they've displayed while turning their season around.
Again, this game will be close.
But let's say the projections are correct, and GAC does win. The Spartans still will not have clinched a Region 6 title, because unlike the Lions, the Spartans have another game to play. And that's against No. 10 Wesleyan. So say Wesleyan beats GAC next week.
That would give the Wolves the Region 6 title, of course, assuming Wesleyan beats last-place Holy Innocents this week.
The guess here is that GAC wins this week at home over the Lions.
But the game will be close, as it should be.
