2018 #PBCHOOPS Boys 9A State SemiFinal Preview

And then there was one. All year Wellington has held the top spot in our #PBCHOOPS TOP 5 and along the way has surprised with their ability to not rebuild but reload after the departure of Trent Frazier via graduation. The last time a team went wire to wire #1 in our poll was the 2A State Champion Grandview Prep back in 2016. The Wolverines are two wins away from it's second state title in four years and third state Final 4 appearance in a four year stretch.

2018 #PBCHOOPS 9A & 5A Regional Final Preview and Predictions

Only two #PBCHOOPS teams remain to play in their respective Regional Final games for a chance to advance to the state Final 4. The top two teams in the Preseason #PBCHOOPSTOP5 Wellington and Oxbridge Academy have arrived at this spot in different ways. Wellington has been dominant all season going undefeated thus far in regular and post-season play. Oxbridge however has struggled with injuries to key players through out most of the regular season but has come together nicely just in time.
