The state tournament is almost here! The 1A and 2A playoffs will be getting underway this week. We begin with our preview of the 1A Illinois State Tournament and our picks!
Providence St. Mel comes into the 1A tournament as the favorite. They are built more like a 3A squad with their size and athleticism. Seniors all over the roster with the ability to play at various college levels. They are led by Taeyon Neal and Jason Mason inside. On the wings Deion Jackson and Tyriel Nelson are slashing scorers. Tim Ervin is a leader at the point.
