St. Bede heavy favorite at Princeton regional
Defending champ St. Bede will be prime for another regional championship when the Princeton 2A regional opens up Monday night at Prouty Gym.
The top-seeded Lady Bruins (24-5) stand 7-0 against the regional field as a heavy favorite, including five victories over its semifinal opponent, either Princeton (3-0) or Mendota (2-0). They beat 2 seed Kewanee in the Lady Bruin Classic as well as Hall along the way.
“There are a lot of familiar names in the tournament for us, teams we have played,” SBA coach Tom McGunnigal said. “At this time you want to be playing your best basketball and I feel this team has really come together throughout the season. Hopefully that will lead to some good things for our team in the postseason.”
Kewanee coach Chuck Blake is a veteran of postseasons with stops at Neponset and Wethersfield along the way. While he gives a big nod to St. Bede, he knows strange things can happen.
