Unlike the other Division in the state, Division II did not get their Regional games started. As a result, we have 16 teams to provide insight who would have advanced to Columbus. There are some household names remaining, as well as some new faces and expected competitors. Regardless though, let’s dive in and take a look at how D2 would have finished in Part 2 of our hypothetical State tournament pieces.


Region 5

Youngstown Chaney vs. Akron SVSM            Lutheran East vs. Triway


In our first Regional to examine, we expect SVSM and Lutheran East to advance out. The Irish have a ton of weapons spread out across the court, led by Malaki BranhamMalakiBranham6'5" | SGSt. Vincent-St. Mary | 2021State#23NationOH (2021) and Sencire HarrisSencireHarris6'5" | PGSt. Vincent-St. Mary | 2022State#55NationOH (2022). Chaney does not have the personnel to match up well with this Irish team.  In the 2nd matchup, Lue East also is loaded with talent across the board.
