Class C Regional Playoff Preview

16 Mar

Is Class C a one team class?  What challengers remain?

Contenders remaining: Flint Beecher (21-1), Hillsdale (22-0), Beaverton (23-0), Shelby (21-1, Horton (21-1)

Sleepers remaining: Monroe St. Mary (20-3), Southfield Christian (20-3), Detroit Edison (16-5)

Two Interesting Regionals:

Whitmore Lake

Teams: Detroit Edison, Monroe  St. Mary, Ypsilanti Arbor Prep, Melvindale ABT

Outlook: After winning the school’s first district championship, Edison moves onto regional play.  The young Pioneers in the first round meet familiar foe, Melvindale ABT.  DEPSA beat the Gators 69-58 in early February.

On the other side of the bracket, Monroe St. Mary won each district game by an average margin of 33 points.  Arbor Prep started the year a dissapointing 3-5, but enter the regional round with momentum winning their last six contests.

Sandusky

Teams: Flint Beecher, Sandusky, Madison Heights Bishop Foley, Southfield Christian

Outlook: This regional will be decided Wednesday night between Beecher and Southfield Christian. The two teams have combined for five state state championship the past five years, Beecher with two in Class C, and SCS with three in Class D.  Can the talented young guards of Christian keep up with the speed, athleticism, height, and experience of Beecher?
