Prediction: Carroll went on the road to beat Snider 65-63 late in January, and I have to think that Carroll’s experience will give them the edge they need to pull it out. No matter what, this potential championship round matchup will be outstanding with Ryan PrestonRyanPreston6'2" | SGFort Wayne Carroll | 2021StateIN, Jalen JacksonJalenJackson6'2" | PGFort Wayne Carroll | 2022StateIN, and Sam StryckerSamStrycker6'4" | PFFort Wayne Carroll | 2021StateIN vs. Karson JenkinsKarsonJenkins6'1" | PGFort Wayne Snider | 2022StateIN, Aidan Lambert, and Jade Moore.
