Take 2: Regional titles are within reach for quarterfinalists
Jacobson: The boys basketball regular season has ended and our last set of playoffs begin today as Genoa-Kingston, DeKalb and Kaneland all have regional quarterfinal games. Sycamore gets started Tuesday in their regional semifinals.
It’s never easy to come out of a regional having to play three games. What are the chances that one of the three teams playing today can win a regional title?
Nitz: It’s always going to be tough to win a regional by having to play a quarterfinal, but anything can happen in a one-and-done, knockout situation. I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility for any of the three teams you mentioned to claim a title Friday night. G-K, at 16-10, has a very good record for a fifth seed, and the Burlington Central Regional looks wide open. Kaneland won the Northern Illinois Big 12 East, and DeKalb has made a nice little move here at the end of the season.
