No. 2 Velma-Alma boys Record: (10-2), coming off eight straight victories including a 55-53 OT win over No. 15 Chattanooga on Saturday. Stength: Closing out games — Another team with a lot of strengths, the Comets best asset is finding a way to win. Their last five wins have been decided by seven points or less. Weakness: Playing Comanche — The Comets have size. They don’t mind running up the court or slowing the tempo down. The only two losses they have had so far were to the Indians. Both were dominating second half victories. Player to Watch: senior Connor Sullivan — The MVP of the Black Diamond tournament, Sullivan provides a strong No. 2 scoring threat behind senior Jaz Gayanich. Where he really asserts himself though is on the defensive end, where his tenacity is bar-none. First-round matchup: vs. No. 7 Empire on Tuesday at 7:40 p.m.
