Plains is a #8, which is surprising due to the fact that they beat Morton over Thanksgiving.

Plains has struggled this season otherwise. I think their record is only 3-6 (or something like that).

Plains played Morton in the Jacksonville Thanksgiving Tourney, second or third game of season I think. Morton has new coach and new offense. However Plains had players still playing football at State. I wasn’t there so I am not sure what to think. Plan on going to Williamsville to see how good DeeMack is. By the way there is a little Italian Restaurant in Williamsville called Bella Tratorria that is excellent. One of our favorites along with Guzzardos in Lincoln.

Yeah Plains' only wins this season are over Morton (60-53), Dunlap (43-32), and Rochester (57-45). They've lost to Jacksonville (57-50), Macomb (58-54), Williamsville (72-70 in 4OT), St. Teresa (52-35), and PORTA (41-36, which I attended and the Bluejays had a heck of a defensive showing in that one).

I'll be there in Williamsville as well following the PORTA games. Might be worth checking them out if the times match up for ya.

We plan to split time between PEKIN and Williamsville. Might even get GBG to go with us if I throw in a trip to Guzzardos! BTW I golf down that way. At Country Hills in Greenview. Have for several years.

Can't wait to see how the Wed & Thurs play out in regards to match-ups for Fri/Sat.

All I know is when the #4 seed is undefeated, should be a fun tourney.
I'm no President Trump fan but thank you sir for your comments in regard to the NFL and those protesting our nations anthem. You were spot on!!!

And as the PJStar pointed out today, the #5 seed is coming in as one of the hotter teams after a tough start to the season.
