Sectional play is over and now all of the attention goes to the Regional matchups this weekend. Time to take a look at the pairings that make up the Class 3A Regionals of the state tournament. 

Regional 5: South Bend Washington

The biggest matchup to watch will be in the backcourt with Harold Woods Harold Woods 6'3" | SF Hammond | 2021 State IN (Hammond) and ’JR’ Douglas Konieczny. Both have the ability to score at will, so potentially watching them go at each other on each possession will be fun to watch. I give the slight nod to Hammond due to its more balanced scoring with four players at 10+ points per game. 

Regional 6: New Castle 

The Teams: New Castle, Northwood, Leo, Mississinewa 

Our Contenders: Leo

Player To Watch: Landen Swanner (Mississinew; 2021)

Prediction: Leo has the tougher of the two matchups going up against Mississinewa. Mississinew is led
