Class 3A boys basketball playoff outlook

News-DemocratMarch 2, 2014 

A look at the metro-east Class 3A regionals:

Class 3A Althoff Regional

Top Seeds: (1) Cahokia (20-8), (2) Althoff (18-9), (3) Waterloo (17-9), (4) Freeburg (16-10)

Pick: Cahokia

Could Challenge: Althoff

Comment: Cahokia beat Althoff twice this season, but one of those games went to overtime and the Comanches pulled it out in the final 23 seconds. Comanches have the firepower, but like the Crusaders have battled inconsistency.

Class 3A Triad Regional

Top Seeds: (1) Marquette (20-6), (2) Jerseyville (17-11), (3) Civic Memorial (18-10), (4) Highland (13-15)

Pick: Marquette

Coud Challenge: Civic Memorial, Jerseyville or Highland all could potentially pull an upset if they can slow down Marquette star and Division I prospect Deion Lavender.
