SAD SAM’S FIRST ROUND STATE PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS

Greetings HS hoops junkies from across the Seattle-like piedmont!!! It’s time once again for The Sadster to consult the ol’ cubic zirconia ball (cant afford crystal) and reveal the results of the first round of the state playoffs before the opening tip.  The Great One is happy because this is his favorite time of year.  He will once again continue his assault on prognosticating perfection but he is actually under the weather so he is picking under duress. However, have no fear for The Sad One will persevere!  In the first round, we will look at the 4A and 3A West and East brackets, and the 2A and 1A West brackets only.
