TAKE 2: Barbs’ No. 2 seed in regional questionable
Daily Chronicle sports editor Ross Jacobson and sports reporter Steve Nitz spend their days covering the area’s sports scene. Occasionally, they give their viewpoints on those local sports. In this installment of their Take 2 column, they discuss the DeKalb girls basketball team’s regional seed.
Jacobson: Steve, the postseason started Monday for our local Class 3A and 4A girls basketball teams, but the brackets already had been set for almost a month. The regionals (or sectionals in some cases) for each class originally are grouped by geography, teams then are given seeds determined by their season resumé and record.
While the seeding usually doesn’t breed much controversy, this season I thought DeKalb receiving a No. 2 seed in the Class 4A Belvidere North Regional was dumbfounding. What were your initial thoughts when you saw the Barbs were given the No. 2 seed behind Belvidere North?
