The Big South Conference has an East and a West, and today we look at both in the Big South Preview at NHR.

Conference Commentary

Top Ten in State:  Waseca, Marshall

The Jays will start the season as the number one team in the state in Class AA returning three starters and their top three reserves (all juniors).  Waseca having few or no seniors could lead to a loss or two, and no matter how many guys are back replacing Malik Willingham isn't easy.  There could be a few bumps but Waseca has a strong PG (Dufault), a standout big (Morgan), a big time athlete (Willingham), and a lot of young juniors ready for bigger roles. 

Marshall is still in Class AAA so there will be no games with Waseca at state but playing during the year should be excellent once again.  The Tigers have pieces of all kinds giving them a squad that could make a run at the state title game. Marshall's big man pair of Puetz and Black will be tough to manage for most while the Barker/Nance backcourt is continuing to grow.
