Park is such an odd program to me. Always chock full of talent, but never able to get over the hump in that sectional. It seems that under Betker they have always struggled with well-coached MPS competition. Hence, why I'm picking Washington. The Purgolders have a ton of talent beyond Long and didn't fall apart without him out in California last year.
What's intriguing is now that the Panthers have been moved into the Madison-area sectional let's see if anything changes. This would be the year to do it given the roster.
I think it's imperative Mr. Days start providing more scoring from the post. That's the key needed to unlock wins in the big games.
They took care of a MPS school in the Playoffs last year in a cracking game. The Panthers can score, losing Farrel hurts a bit sure. I’m sure the Panther coaching staff has found some solid bench players out of the program.
