If past results are any indication, then the Angels of St. Joseph's Academy may just be on solid footing.
St. Joe (22-5) meets Cor Jesu Academy of Affton (21-9) in the semifinals Friday night at Mizzou Arena, tipoff is 6:15 p.m.
The winner advances to the Saturday night Show-Me Showdown finals at 8:30 p.m. Saturday. The consolation game will be held at 1:15 p.m. Saturday.
The opponent will be either Columbia Rock Bridge (23-3) or Blue Springs of Kansas City (28-2).
The Angels have previously played all of these teams this year.
They beat Blue Springs 60-38 in the Visitation Academy Holiday tournament. They beat Cor Jesu on the road January 9, 65-46 and they lost to Rock Bridge January 29 in the Webster Groves Tournament 55-40.
"I Like March at Mizzou. That month has mostly been kind to us," said Coach Julie Matheny of St. Joe.
What is painful is that she will say goodbye to her three-year starters Sydney Stipanovich (Penn), Erin Nelson (SLU) and Emmie Haring. All three are previous choices as Patch MVP Athletes of the Week. Haring will be featured Sunday.
Stipanovich has double-doubles regularly, averaging 15.5 points and 11.9 rebounds per game. Forward Nelson averages 16.2 points and 7.9 boards per game. Harring, who plays point guard has 130 assists this season.
Cor Jesu is led by senior guard Chaley Poth, 14.1 points per game. Cor Jesu has won 4 straight; St. Joe has won the last 7 of the season.
