Class 4A Quincy Regional capsule

March 2, 2014 

Top seeds: (1) Edwardsville (25-2), (2) Alton (22-5), (3) Quincy (14-11), (4) Granite City (2-24)

Pick: Edwardsville. The Tigers have no apparent weaknesses and have two of the best players in the St. Louis area in seniors Armon Fletcher and Shawn Roundtree.

Could challenge: Alton. The Redbirds handed Edwardsville one of its two losses and are dangerous if they are able to set the tempo. But the Tigers seldom allow that to happen.

Comment: This is Edwardsville's regional to win. Alton, led by junior Carlos Anderson and seniors D'Antae McMurray and Mike Williams-Bey, will be formidable in the title game, but the Tigers are clicking with 12 victories in their last 13 games.
