4A #1 Council Bluffs Lincoln (6-0) at Bellevue West (NE)

In an effort to really test themselves during non-league play, Council Bluffs Lincoln is headed across the Missouri River to take on Bellevue West, a powerhouse program from the Omaha area. West’s only loss this season came to Corona Centennial, a team from California that is currently ranked #4 in the country by MaxPreps. The Thunderbirds are loaded with talent, with two of the top 14 players in Nebraska’s 2022 class (#6 William Kyle, #14 Evan Inselman), three of the top 10 in the 2023 class (#1 Josiah Dotzler, #7 Jaxon Stueve, #10 John Mitchell III), and three of the top 13 players in the 2024 class (#2 Jaden Jackson, #9 Eldon Turner, and #13 Jacob Arop). (All rankings from Prep Hoops Nebraska.) Kyle is the team’s leader, an athletic 6-8 rim protector who is headed to South Dakota State, while the rest of the headliners are more perimeter-oriented threats. The Thunderbirds are loaded with length, athleticism, and quickness, and this will be a real test for CBAL.

The Lynx are led
