I respectfully disagree with your assessment of the Region first round. I believe HN will beat DVE handily. They are playing excellent basketball right now. Cavalier probably gets Griggs, but Billy Engel does a great job of running the show and Watne is very used to scoring big against larger opponents.
Thompson is all about matchups - if you can defend Adam in the post, you can beat them. If not, he gets 25-30. I haven't seen PRFL so I don't know if they can defend Adam or not. Hillsboro - talented team, it all depends heavily on whether Otto and Dufner can keep their emotions in check. If Grafton gets the game into the 60s or above, they'll win. If Hillsboro can defend and keep the score down, this one will go down to the wire.
I believe District 3 is much better this year and will represent themselves well.
