Boys playoff preview
Sectional 32 - Evansville (Harrison)
#5AA Memorial is surely the favorite to repeat as sectional champs. Central is the only other team here with a winning record,
and the Bears' 2-5 loss against the Tigers could hint at a crazy title match.
AlmanacSports prediction: Memorial over Central
Sectional 31 - North
By far one of the toughest sectionals, it features 4 of the top 7 in our local Almanac-8 Poll.
Hosts North already defeated Washington, but the Hatchets are never an easy opponent.
#19AA Jasper starts off against Castle, and the winner should advance past Boonville into the final.
The Wildcats just disposed of the Knights, who won the sectional last year, so don't be surprised to see them take this sectional
AlmanacSports prediction: Jasper over North
Sectional 64 - North Posey
#5A Gibson Southern is the favored team to win the sectional. Mater Dei is weaker this year than in the past, but don't count
out this SIAC team in October.
AlmanacSports prediction: Gibson Southern over Mater Dei
Sectional 63 - Forest Park
This sectional makes for an interesting blend of PAC foes. South Spencer finished 2nd in the conference standings and should win,
but hosts Forest Park would love to return to semi-state. Heritage Hills is also a serious contender.
AlmanacSports prediction: South Spencer over Heritage Hills
Sectional 62 - NE Dubois
Blue Chip rivals Northeast Dubois host #16A Washington Catholic (last year's champs) to open the top half of the bracket. A decent Pike Central
team should advance to the finals, but the winner of the Cardinals-Jeeps game has to be the favorite.
AlmanacSports prediction: NE Dubois over Pike Central
Sectional 61 - North Knox
Vincennes Rivet has a good chance at defending the sectional title, having defeated all other opponents this season. The Patriots start with a bye to boot.
AlmanacSports prediction: Vin. Rivet over South Knox
