Sheboygan Lutheran is my pick but Bangor and Grant Manke have really impressed me of late. That title game would be fun to watch. 

Cant discount McDonell and Marshfield Columbus either.

Much like last year, I think we'll have one non-competitive game and one competitive game in the semis.

Is it true Sheboygan has a 6'9" shooting guard?

Not sure he's 6'9" but yes, they have that.

No, Jacob Ognacevic is Lutheran's tallest player at 6'7" and while he can shoot the three, he is typically a forward playing near the rim.  Delvin Barnstable is Lutheran's shooting guard and he is listed at 6'0".  Lutheran's win against Rio on Saturday was not as close as the final score suggests....they won by 14.

D5 is a very interesting division to say the least. SL is the favorite but I wouldn’t count out the other 3 teams either. These are 4 very solid teams and I wouldn’t be surprised to see any number of different combinations of them in the final.

They were up by 30+ at the half. The game against Hustisford was very close though, and I wonder if that will be their closest game of the playoffs.

Sheboygan Lutheran has the division's best player, and arguably a few more good players around him than Dekker had. They're gonna be a tough out.

Bangor brings back the big man Manke, but everyone else was replaced. They've barely missed a beat as this school continues to pump out quality athletes...that has to run out eventually, right? I don't think they're on the same level as last year, but something tells me they're still pretty darn good.

Columbus Catholic usually is a Roncalli-lite with a bunch of shooters, but has a bit more size than usual. I think they push Bangor, but don't have enough.

McDonell Central's star is fading but they're back for another go-round. Their schedule serves them well and more than prepares them for what is usually the least strong sectional in this division, and that's why they're here. Not sure they hang with SL.

So far, it’s like being here 4 years in a row and being battle tested is helping McDonell against a favored Sheboygan Area Lutheran team. 

Thst said, good lord is Casey Verhagen quick, and a freshman if that?

A switch to 1 1-3-1 has given SL some momentum.

Hoglund and Kressin have come to play. Big in the case of Hoglund, whose performance against Bangor last year left a lot to be desired.

Halftime

McDonell's hit a few corner threes (all by Bohaty) to bust open the 1-3-1 zone a bit, but offensively after a bit of a slow start, the Crusdaers from SL have settled in.

Leading Scorers:

SL: Delvin Barnstable 10, Jacob Ognacevic 7, Graden Grabowski 6
MC: J.D. Bohaty 9, Cory Hoglund 8, Jaebin Bourget 4

After being mostly held in-check, Jacob Ognacevic is starting to find points for Sheobygan Lutheran and as such their lead has ballooned to 9.
