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)
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)
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.
