Top Players to Watch
Underdog to win CCAC Title
Grand View – Ryan Miller and company have been playing some great basketball down the stretch. This is a team that can shoot the 3 well enough to beat teams.
Peru State – A team that we have said all year long that is better than their record. They won enough games down the stretch to get into the Heart Tournament and even beat Briar Cliff, who won the GPAC, by double-figures. Very talented roster who are just a couple years removed from a National Tournament appearance.
