I have no idea who will win it all this year but I think the teams that should be in the top 10 are: These are not ranked in any particular order.  Just wrote down teams from south and north

Fordyce
Junction City
Caddo Hills
Dierks
Lavaca
Marianna Lee
Earle
Bay
Melbourne

From what I have been told, England lost a ton from last year and have not been that great the last few years in jr high.  If their football team is any indication of the talent level at the school now, they have fallen on some tough times with athletes

England will be down this year in basketball. We lost three starter from last years team, but they were really good   We have won  three of the past six 2A titles, so donít count us completely out yet.   We only played one football game this year.  We will compete for our conference title.   We have a tough early schedule.  Mineral Springs,  Fountain Lake,  Rison,  Melbourne and Junction City.

I'm not by any means saying that BIC needs to be in top 6 or even top 10 cause they have to prove themselves but the pieces are there. What I am gonna say is if Bay is top 6 then BIC is for sure there judging of what Bay lost from last year and BIC did not lose anything and gained a really good sophomore from a 31-5 junior high team which handled Bay in every game last year.

Dierks is going to be solid this year but the team to beat in that conference is Caddo Hills.  Now after this year Dierks will be the team to beat for the next couple in that conference.

Fordyce is talented enough, but idk if they are disciplined enough. They lost some games and let lesser talent hang around too much last year. Hopefully maturity does that group some good. Arenít they senior heavy this year?

Caddo Hills will destroy Dierks this year.
[/quote

I could see that happening. Caddo was really good last year and gained the Gaither boy back from Kirby.  I could see them giving teams trouble with their guard play but they have no true post player.  So when they run into teams with decent guards and a big man inside that will hurt them.  But I already said I think Caddo is the team to beat in that conference and will gives the other side trouble too because none of those teams down south have size either.  I hope they play Dierks on a Friday night though so I can drive down and see that one.  Should be fun to watch with both teams wanting to play fast and shoot a bunch of 3s

Sounds like we will have a strong Conference. Having two top 10 teams in the conference will be great! Dierks and Caddo Hills.

Dierks should be better than expected this year with the move in from dequeen davin burgess. He averaged 22 for a 5a school so he should dominate 2a.

Maybe if he averaged that for a good 5A school that would mean something. The 5A team he played for struggled to beat the same teams dierks and Caddo should beat.

I have no clue who yall are talking about, but would the team they played have more to do with this kids average than the team he played on? Unless the team he played on was also guarding him...🤔🤔

Not always, I've seen players average mid 20s(a chunk of that also against the other teams subs) and lose by 20+ most nights because they play on a non competitive team and jack up a high majority of the shots. Still takes some talent to average that but if the same player was on a good team trying to compete to win they might only be averaging 10-15. That's still going to be a good help regardless, but doesn't guarantee that he will be dominating in 2A.

look at that another way, if hes the ONLY scoring threat on the floor, im sure hes drawing the other teams best defender every night. so if hes on a team with some help, he may can score more.

It can definitely go both ways, it's pretty frustrating to be the only scoring threat on a team that people can concentrate on each night. Also, not familiar with DeQueens team from last year or this player, but DeQueen has stats entered into MaxPreps for last year. It shows that through 23 games he averaged 9.3ppg shooting 73-249 for 29%(30% from 3, 29% from 2)

Iíve seen the Burgess kid play and he will definitely be one of the better guards in Dierks team. But with that being said he wonít average 20 because they have some other players that can score too. I would expect him to average around 12 to 15. Him moving in to Dierks gives them a legit shot at winning that conference but they still have to play Caddo at Caddo Hills. Everyone from Caddo thinks this game wonít be close but I think it will be a game that can go either way with the winning team winning by 5 or less
