Basketball season is here, and that means Chucky is more focused on each concession stand’s popcorn making ability than the action on the court. Still, picks must be made. BOYS*** LUMEN CHRISTI @ JACKSON: Former Lions coach Jim Schwartz is on-hand to lend his services to either coach in need of in-game adjustments, but his offer to assist is rebuffed by both sides when it’s revealed that he- and the Lions – just aren’t that good. PICK: LUMEN CHRISTI HOMER @ HANOVER-HORTON: The Trojans feature many of the same kids who helped the football team reach the state semifinals in November. Trouble erupts when those same kids, perhaps forgetting its basketball season, tackle the Comets’ ball carriers the first few times up the court. PICK: HANOVER-HORTON CONCORD @ VANDERCOOK LAKE:…

Jackson High @ Lumen Christi (2013 Promise Bowl): Titans still angry over having to drive two-plus hours to Buchanan last week only to play two quarters before lightning scuttled the second half. The Vikings got to play three quarters in their loss to West Bloomfield. The extra game experience won’t help. PICK: LUMEN CHRISTI Hanover-Horton @ East Jackson: Comets team bus gets stuck in Wendy’s parking lot on East Michigan Ave waiting for spicy chicken sandwiches. They arrive at EJ just before kickoff. PICK: HANOVER-HORTON Lansing Waverly @ Northwest: Mounties opened the season with a big road win last week at Hillsdale, then celebrated on the way back by visiting antique shops along US-12. Coach Slater promises a trip to Stagecoach Stop if they make it two in a row. PICK: NORTHWEST Charlotte @ Western: The Panthers were so excited to open the season with a win over Lake Odessa that they spread it out over two days last weekend to savor the taste. Charlotte team bus driver, confused over all the construction on the Western campus, parks bus at MACI and makes team walk. PICK: CHARLOTTE Manchester @ Napoleon: The Pirates played tough in opening loss to Columbia Central…
