The favorite: Like both Western Christian and Pella Christian were in their districts, Carroll Kuemper is a big favorite here. The Knights haven't lost a game against 2A competition this season, and have been sitting near the top of the 2A poll all year. They're led by future South Dakota State big Matt Dentlinger (19.0, 12.0 rebounds, 3.8 blocks), an interior presence that few, if any, 2A teams can match. Parker Badding (10.9, 37.9 3P%) and Sam Auen (10.5, 44.1 3P%) provide some additional scoring punch on the wing, and Jacob Schaefer (9.3) and Will Badding (8.2) round out a very good starting unit. Kuemper ranks 4th in 2A in scoring, putting up 72.9 a game, while playing one of the more difficult schedules in the class. It would be a shocker if the Knights don't make it through this district.
