The field is set for the Final Four of the Class 1 state tournament, which will be held on Thursday and Friday at the JQH Arena on the campus of Missouri State University in Springfield. The field features three of the four teams that were in the Final Four last year, including defending state champion Platte Valley (then Conception Junction), second-place Dora and third-place St. Elizabeth.

Here is a look at the Class 1 Final Four along with our fearless predictions:

Thursday, March 12 (Semifinals)

Dora (30-2) vs. Platte Valley (28-2), 6:50 p.m. - It will be a rematch of last year’s state championship game, which was won by Platte Valley 75-65 in what many called a big surprise. Both teams have looked strong in getting back to the Final Four. Dora features a high-octane offense as displayed by the 106 points they scored against Delta in the quarterfinals. Class of 2021 guard Yaya KeitaYayaKeita6'9" | PFDeSmet | 2021StateMO is one of top bucket-getters in the state. The Missouri-State commit is averaging 30 points a game. The brother trio of 2021 triplets Bryson, Auston and Mason are all averaging in double figures while providing toughness.
