This is another game to me that is one of the tougher ones to pick.  I have to wonder what both teams confidence level is at this point.  Trinity played #12 Krum this weekend and lost 63-41 and Woden played 1A Big Sandy and lost 44-41.  Who do you like in this one and why?

Hope Trinity gets the W, but playoffs is new to them. I just hope they can just have fun and play the game. Simple as that sounds that atmosphere does strange things to teams that are not used to playoffs.

The playoffs aren't new to this team. They made the playoffs last year, and hung with Kountze in the Area round before falling in a close game. That loss should leave them hungry, but Woden does a very good job at controlling the pace of the game and making other teams play their style. This game will come down to the referee's and whether or not Woden can play their physical style of defense. From what I have seen so far, the refs have been a lot more laid back and have been letting teams play.
I think Woden wins, but I would be happy to see Trinity win.

Multiple times. Saw them play a couple of games in the Lovelady Tourney and saw them play in Crockett.
Trinity can run, and they can slow things down into the half-court set. The shooters are streaky, and when they are on, they are tough to beat. The post game has gotten better as the year has gone on with the guys getting more physical and aggressive in the paint.

Worst games? I watched yall beat a Teague team that I'm pretty sure went undefeated in district play. If that was one of your worst games then wow.
I'm sorry if I have made it seem like I think Trinity is a terrible team. I have definitely underestimated them this year. I said they wouldn't win the district and they did. I wish for the best from Trinity, and hope they do well actually. They have good kids that play the game the right way. They have an excellent coach that is passionate about what he does.
As for picking Woden, that comes from taking a step back and looking at the game as an unbiased observer. I have seen both teams play and I think their defense and physical play will be the difference in the game. They have a way about bringing bad games out of their opponents.

Even with de facto home court advantage for Woden, I'm going with Trinity.
