Class C Playoff Preview and Predictions

Well it is that time of the year, time for the 2010 version of the LHSAA boy's basketball playoffs. One thing is for sure in the Class Playoffs and that is that there will be a new champion crowned. With Class C powerhouse Reserve Christian closing down it's high school and the players and coaches going to nearby Riverside Academy, a new champ will be crowned. You may be thinking "that is great news" but not so fast. This year's top seeded Pleasant Hill Eagles come in with a 28-6 record and the entire team back from last year's state semifinalist squad. Last year's state runner-up Athens, well they are 34-4 and the #2 seed. If those teams aren't enough to make you scratch your head, then look at the rest of the top 10 that all have single digit total losses and 20+ win seasons except 6 seed Atlanta who was a semi-finalist in 2009 as well. This year's class C playoffs will be fun to watch. So, with that said let's take look at the Louisiana Basketball Report's Class C Predictions.
