There is an old saying in basketball that it is hard to beat a team three times in the same season.

For fans of Ben Davis basketball, that is the belief as the No. 8 rated Giants prepare to face undefeated and No. 1 Warren Central in the second game of Saturday’s Class 4A regional at Southport. Mount Vernon and Terre Haute South — both teams are unranked — start things off at 10 a.m. Saturday followed by the rematch of MIC rivals at approximately noon. The championship game is at 8 p.m.

Warren Central has beaten Ben Davis twice this season and has four straight wins in the series. The Warriors beat Ben Davis 47-39 in the regular season matchup in December at Warren and then handed the Giants a 55-43 loss in the championship game of the Marion County tournament in January, a game that was played at Southport. The last time Ben Davis won in this series was a 55-43 score in the semifinals of the 2015 Marion County tourney.

The Giants are defending Class 4A state champions and post a 21-5 record. Warren Central is 28-0 and features a balanced attack led by junior guard David Bell. The Warriors have climbed to No. 14 in the national ranking.

Ben Davis is led by 6-foot-5 senior Aaron Henry, a Michigan State recruit, and 6-foot-7 junior center Dawand Jones.
