I know Silo played well last night, but I still feel as if Dale’s path to the finals is looking very good. Don’t think either quarterfinal or semifinal will be much of a game. Howe/Pocola also won’t be a game based on when I watched them the first time. Am Po/Latta will be a great game. I’m still going to go with Dale vs. Silo and Howe vs. Latta on Friday. Howe played great against Hartshorne, but Latta’s size will give them trouble. Still, I think their athleticism and bench can and will get them to a state championship rematch with Dale. From there, I’d say Dale is the better team. However, it’ll be who shoots the best as that is what each of them do best.
Besides Ampo and Hooker I would say that the other 6 showed they could play. Dale and Latta will always be the favorites especially on this site. And they probably should be most years. Hartshorne showed they belonged still as many of you barely mention their name. Howe will be the team to beat next year with almost everyone returning.
Be honest did anyone have Silo and Howe in the finals lol
Not all these people that said Dale and Latta were head and shoulders above everybody else.
Maybe time to give Silo and Howe some credit??? ump44 been dogging them all year.
I’ve never said anything about Howe because I do t know anything about Howe. Silo just had such a rough January. Dale embarrassed them at Kingston. So is it that hard to think Latta and Dale were better?

I had Howe and Dale in the finals for the rematch, but hats off to silo for getting the upset. I knew Howe’s depth would give a lot of teams trouble, they wear teams down. Especially playing three days in a row.

Everybody said Silo's first win over Dale was a fluke. Well they beat them two out of three. Obviously its not whose playing best in January. Silo and Howe have been under the radar for the last month playing better than anybody else and have proved it.
Congrats to the Lady Lions. Just straight up outplayed my Rebels today. Both teams played amazing. Lady Rebels are young and it was no fluke them getting to the title game. They’ll be back! Great Season for 2A ladies basketball!
Howe was clearly the best team this year. Only losses to Tuttle who is the 4A state champ and Roland who is probably going to win Class 3A tonight.
Only losses they have had to 2A opponents in the last three years were to Dale in 2019 regular season and Silo in 2020 regular season. Coach Brown is one of the best around in ANY class.
Only losses were 4a champs and 3a runner up. I picked them early to repeat. I did count Silo out to early though. I did not think they would beat Dale again, but the Ellison girl can flat go. Depth is huge and Howe has it. They came out after a very physical game with Latta, and just flat wore Silo out. Hard to beat them with just 6 or 7. They graduate 2 good senior starters and one from their second group who have had a heck of a career there at Howe. Might have been a three peat if not for Covid last year. I said it then too, when everyone was giving Vanoss the gold ball pre season. We’ll always just have to wonder what if, but Howe was my pick. Like I said depth is tough and this team is built for three days in a row. Congratulations on the back to back championships that’s tough to do.
