Greetings HS hoops junkies from across the finally clearing piedmont.  The Sadster is here to delve out the 1st round playoff winners.  Because of the brevity of this season and time constraints, the Great One will keep his early-round picks in the 4A class only.  He will add another class or two later on in the playoffs.  The 4A West could be wild, especially early as a plethora of monster tilts await as some Charlotte teams will collide in the 1st two rounds easily producing upset possibilities.  Michael Jordan’s Alma Mater, Wilmington Laney, has the top seed in the East, and Ardrey Kell was granted top honors in the West.  Here are your 1st round winners…… 

4A WEST 
ARDREY KELL, HARDING, PAGE, NORTH MECK, PANTHER CREEK, HOUGH and upset specials SOUTH MECK AND MYERS PARK

4A EAST
LANEY, SOUTH CENTRAL, PINECREST, HERITAGE, APEX, PINE FOREST, MILLBROOK and upset special LEESVILLE RD. 

There you have it, folks!  On Wednesday, The Great One will return to either gloat in victory or lick his wounds in 1st round defeat, and he will also reveal your 2nd round playoff winners.  Stay tuned!!!
