The favorite: Van Meter has found themselves struggling to the end of the regular season posing a 3-3 record in the month of February, though those three losses were to conference leaders Des Moines Christian, Pella Christian who plays in a 3A conference, and a top 2A team in Roland-Story. Nonetheless, they will look to continue a successful season starting with the winner between Central Decatur and Interstate-35. The Bulldogs are led by an under-the-radar PG, who has a lot of savvy in Junior Chris SchreckChrisSchreck5'9" | PGVan Meter | 2022StateIA (12.7). Schreck is followed by two more Juniors in Casey Trudo (11.4) and Clark Fiala (11.0). Schreck is shooting 40% from 3 and Trudo, 37.3% from the perimeter but they also have Fiala and Senior, 6’7 Taylor Birks. This team can go to their bench and that should come in handy for a deep run.

The biggest threat: Panora-Panorama is a sneaky good team, with sneaky good depth. Junior and Senior players strictly throughout their entire rotation shows that they’ve been working together for a while now. They ended the season on a 6 game win streak and notably beat Des Moines Christian in that streak.
