In advance of the Class 4A Maine South boys basketball sectional, which tips off Monday, Pioneer Press staff writer Matt Harness examined the bracket.
There is no controversy at the top of the sectional as both No. 1 Loyola and No. 2 Maine South clearly deserved the top seeds.
Even though Niles North doesn’t have the sexiest record this season — it was 14-14 after the weekend — Glenn Olson has proven he can coach in the playoffs, having won three regional titles in a row and a sectional championship in 2010.
Players to Watch
DUANTE STEPHENS, Niles North senior guard
JON ARENAS, Maine South sophomore guard
