To say that the Melcher-Dallas boys have a difficult against Grandview Christian on Tuesday, is like saying UMBC was a slight underdog to Virginia last year. We all know how that game turned out. The Saints are hoping for some UMBC magic as they will take on class 1A’s number one ranked team on Tuesday in the district semi-finals. The Thunder average over 76 points per game, shoot 54% from the field, 37% from three point range, and destroyed fellow Bluegrass Conference team Moulton-Udell on Thursday 75-13. Grandview’s only loss was to 4A power Iowa City West by just ten points. Melcher-Dallas Coach Jim Wells tells KNIA Sports, he knows Grandview Christian likely is looking past the Saints, and his team will go in with no pressure because no body thinks they can win.
