Boys basketball: SVM scouts Class 3A Rock Falls Regional

SVM Scouts
3A Rock Falls Regional

When: Monday, Tuesday, Friday

Where: Rock Falls High School

Teams: No. 1 Rock Falls (21-6), No. 2 Ottawa (21-5), No. 3 LaSalle-Peru (17-9), No. 4 Mendota (16-12), No. 5 Sterling (10-17), No. 6 Dixon (3-24)

Players to watch: Jace Anderson, Rock Falls sr. G; Steven Armoska, Rock Falls sr. F; Trae Blumhorst, Mendota sr. F; John Carroll, Ottawa jr. G; Cal Jarrett, Dixon so. G; Zach Rehmert, Sterling jr. G; Jens Soderholm, LaSalle-Peru sr. F

Outlook: While four of the six teams in this regional warmed up for the second season in the NIB-12 West, Rock Falls was carved out of wood by the rough-and-tumble Big Northern West. Facing teams like ‘Bago and Lutheran have them prepared for anything this field will throw at them, including Sterling, should the Golden Warriors upend
Mendota and set up a
Twin Cities semifinal.
L-P enters with a chip on
its shoulder, having run the
NIB-12 table yet being
seeded behind Ottawa.

Favorite: Rock Falls

Dark horse: LaSalle-Peru
