FAVORITE - ONALASKA

Despite losing Carson ArenzCarsonArenz6'5" | SFOnalaska | 2020StateWI and Tyrell StuttleyTyrellStuttley6'4" | PFOnalaska | 2020StateWI, the Hilltoppers are still in good shape to repeat as conference champions. Onalaska returns a strong senior trio of Gavin McGrathGavinMcGrath6'10" | COnalaska | 2021StateWI, Sam KickSamKick6'1" | PGOnalaska | 2021StateWI, and Victory Desmond who have played a ton of basketball over the last three years on the varsity level and been in some of the biggest environments.

TOP CONTENDER - LA CROSSE CENTRAL

The Red Raiders are going to take a step back after losing three Division 1 players, but they’re still one of the frontrunners in the Mississippi Valley Conference.  It’s probably a rebuilding year in terms of trying to get back to the Division 2 title race, but Central has some nice pieces to work with. Juniors Noah CompanNoahCompan6'3" | SFLa Crosse Central | 2022StateWI and Devon FieldingDevonFielding5'11" | PGLa Crosse Central | 2022StateWI got their feet wet last season. Sophomore Bennett FriedBennettFried6'4" | SFLa Crosse Central | 2023StateWI is a top 50 player in his class
