SW Analyst Jason Jewell previews tonight Fox Sports Arizona game of the week

Preview: Chandler (Az.) High at Chandler Basha

Last week: Chandler (3-0) beat Mesquite (2-1) 33-0. Basha (3-0) beat St. Mary's (1-2) 65-29.

Players to Watch: Chandler- senior WR Javon Williams, senior WR Lloyd Mills, senior OG Zach Hemmila, senior DE Richard Winston, senior DE Kisima Jagne, senior RB Paul Perkins, senior DB LaRon Tarkington, senior CB Devin Centers, junior QB Darrell Garretson

Basha- senior OL Evan Sarver, senior QB Kyle Duran, senior CB Devin Reed, senior WR Nate Phillips, junior DB Matt Bailey, senior OL Drew Mahooty, junior RB Myles Smith, junior WR Keenan Garland

Keys to a Chandler win: Stop, or at least try and slow down Basha's offense. The Bears have scored over 50 points in all three games this year. Stop Basha early. Basha has scored at least 2 TDs in the first quarter of all three of their games thus far. Chandler's defense has not been scored on yet this year, I expect that to change tonight, how will the Wolves respond in a dog fight?

Keys to a Basha win
: Chandler has athletes all over the field, try and force them to run the ball. Paul Perkins ran the ball effectively last week against Mesquite but Chandler wants to get the ball in the hands of their playmakers, Mills and Williams. Stop the deep ball. Williams is a big play threat, with his height he is a serious matchup problem, the Wolves like to try and hit him deep at least every other series. Coach Busken likes Reed's ability, this will be a big test for him tonight.
