Baptist Prep
Bauxite
Monticello
Batesville Southside
Warren
Pottsville
Prep at the top and not sure where the other 5 rank but that's my top 6. They were all young this past season.

Monticello will be average at best next year. They graduated a lot from a team that couldn't make it out of regionals.

They were playing some 9th graders too. I think they will be a surprise.

Two 9th grade guards. They aren't moving up anything else from last years junior high that can help. I highly doubt they will be in the top 5 conversation next season.

Well this list is no good now anyway since Baptist Moved down and now Mills moves up... So, there may be some shake ups. Never count coach Loyd at Pea Ridge out.

Those classification movements will not take place until 2018/2019 season

Ya know, Subiaco may be in that top 10 too. I think they were young too...

I considered them. I think they were more a product of their weak conference but the close loss to Cave City was impressive. They will be in the mix.

I think the 4A Region 1 Conference will be tough. Pea Ridge, Gravette, Prairie Grove and S. Christian should all be really good.

The 4A-1 and the 4-4A will be by far the toughest region to get out of this coming year. Pottsville and Subi will be tough but on the other side you got Gravette that returns a bunch and Shiloh and Pea Ridge will be tough as well. Basketball in the 1-4A is on the rise I know at Lincoln we will have the best 9th grade class we have had in 10 years.

Will Lincoln consider moving any 9th graders up?

It would be a long shot to repeat the moderate success they had last season.  Unfortunately, Subi does not develop their younger players very well.  Outside the top 8-10 guys, during practice, the others are simply left to 'play' on the other side of the court on their own without much supervision or instruction.  There is no real program in place for development.  They are only losing two Seniors, but those two were the entire inside for the team, so a good opponent should be able to expose them badly on the inside next year.

Nothing in my comment is putting down Subiaco, just stating the facts as many of us Alums see it.  Sometimes the truth is hard to swallow, but in the end, it is still the truth.  This is an open discussion forum and if you feel my comments are unwarranted or unfair, you are entitled to disagree.  If you know me outside the forum, you are welcome to call me and I am prepared to defend my opinion.
