The Ray C. Ball Region has the defending champion and a handful of intriguing second-round matchup.

We take a closer look at each of the regions for Saturday games below:

No. 8 Liberty (12-12) at No. 1 Overland (20-3), 1 p.m.
The road to another championship begins in earnest for Overland in its opening game of the postseason against Liberty. The Trailblazers, much like last season, hit a bump in the road with midseason, in-state losses to Regis Jesuit, Grandview and Eaglecrest -- the latter without big man De'Ron Davis. But as they did last season, the Trailblazers seem to be figuring things out at the right time. They have a great blend of athleticism, with players like Jervae Robinson, Padiet Wang, Alijah Halliburton, Tyler Stevenson and Reggie Gibson all becoming solidified in their roles alongside Davis. That will be a lot of depth Overland can throw at Liberty and star guard T.J. Clark, one of the state's better unsigned 2016 guards, who made a game-winning shot in the Lancers' opening-round victory on Tuesday.
Prediction: Overland

No. 5 Far Northeast Warriors (18-6) at No. 4 Boulder (17-6), 1 p.m.
The Warriors like to run, push the pace
