Each week during high school basketball season, World-Herald prep recruiting specialist Mike Sautter will nominate four games to be considered as the Pinnacle Bank Game of the Week.
And we want the fans to vote and decide the winner. The options will include a mix of games from the Metro area and statewide.
The winning game will be previewed by Sautter during the week with a close look at the players to watch. He'll also travel to the featured game (weather permitting) to provide full coverage with live updates, photos and video. We'll also have a full postgame recap after the final whistle.
The four games nominated will be announced every Sunday at 7 p.m., and voting will be open until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The winning game will be announced live Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. on the NEPrepZone Facebook and Twitter accounts.
This week's nominees are:
Class A No. 3 Creighton Prep (8-2) @ Class A No. 10 Omaha Westside (5-3), 7:15 p.m. Friday: Class A rivals will meet in a top ten matchup.
Class A No. 8 Papillion-La Vista (6-3) @ Class A No. 9 Papillion-La Vista South (5-4), 7:15 p.m. Friday: Metro Tournament semifinalists meet in a Sarpy county Rivalry game.
