Class B Playoff Preview and Predictions

C.J Johnson(left) of Rapides and Marvin Frazier(right) of Zwolle will look to make another deep run
As the 2010 Class B playoffs begin, familiar Top 28 teams locked up the top 3 seeds again. Coming in as the #1 seed is Rapides High School(39-5) followed by Midland(30-3) at 2 and defending state champion Zwolle(33-9) at 3. The 4th seed Fairview(28-7) led by scoring machine guard Cody Neal. With no clear cut favorite to win the title, I personally believe that the top 4 seeds could very well be the final 4 teams standing. Rapides is led by CJ Johnson who was one of the top players for the Mustangs last year, Fairview has Neal, Zwolle has 6'7" F Marvin Frazier and Midland has Miles Prejean. As good as the top 4 teams are there are others like Centerville with TJ Kemp and Jovan Sanders that can also make a lot of noise as the 5 seed. There are also a handful of other teams outside the top 10 that need be taken seriously one of which includes the 12 seed in Houma Christian coming in at 18-4 and led by freshman Nate Frye but they will have a tough game with 21 seed Maurepas led by possible All-State player Demitri Gill who has averaged over 32 a game in district. So, this years Class B playoffs will be very interesting once again.
