New Mission vs. Milton (7:30 Tuesday the 11th)
Pre-tournament picks - New Mission vs. Bishop Feehan. Mission was the clear favorite in the D2 North, but Milton (the #12 seed) completely surprised everyone in the South, winning a close one in OT versus Sharon. We are not ashamed to say not many people predicted this match-up.
Overview - Once this game was finalized, the immediate attention went to Milton guard Juwan Gooding who played for New Mission last season. If Gooding, who is considered one of the more talented guards in the area, can focus his attention on winning and not making things personal this could be a Milton win. Unfortunately, Mission is just too tough at all positions. Shaquan Murray has been steady all year, Bam Rivers does everything well, and Asante Sandiford is tough on both ends of the court.
