We expected the winning team to exploit mismatches. We just didn’t expect it to be these two. While Coeur d’Alene solved the size problem, not letting Eagle’s Gillmor and Shaw dominate inside, and Eagle did a decent job of containing Cd’A’s Watson (he was definitely the most athletic player on the floor), it was the Viking’s Matheson and Barraco that were the difference makers.
Registration deadline is March 5
