I haven't seen them play but someone I trust told me they have a lot of size and will be at least a quarterfinalist in the 5A

If your prognostication is correct, that would be a significant jump from where they finished last year.

I would pick LR Central in 7A girls.

Locks are 1A girls - Nemo ; 4A girls - Riverview- better than last yr. & won state easily. If a game at state w/in 20 pts it'll be an upset

Riverview In the 4A Boys division would have to be atop the leaderboard for playing for all the marbles. Played Maumelle within 6 pts on a Neutral floor last week...

I am a Star City LadyDog fan through and through but after playing Riverview girls in the semis last year and knowing what they have coming back I do not understand how you don't have them as the pick to win it all in 4A???

I Agree B92,
Fav has to be Rview, with PG, Star City, Ozark
In 5A - Nettleton and Batesville are tough,  Mt Home girls have looked good also.

Yeah, not really sure where the 5A east is going to be this year (in the playoffs).

Being a Paragould fan, I appreciate the love for the girls ["5A Champs - Paragould"]. But I am not sure the Paragould girls will win the conference, much less state. I think they have good players and a great coach [Coach Cook], but I don't think they have the level of talent needed to win big.

On the other hand, the Paragould boys may be far more competitive. They have all the main scorers back [Brandon Clifford - 29 pts/game avg in 2015], with some good sophomores. And while Paragould lost their best defensive players from 2015, the 2016 team may have better OVERALL defense.

Paragould will go as Brandon Clifford goes; we are going to learn if Brandon learned anything from playing with the Arkansas Wings AAU team this past summer!

Beebe girls beat Paragould by 26 on a neutral floor and lost to Riverview by 4 in finals of a tournament last week. Riverview, Star City, or Prarie Grove should win 4A.  Not saying Beebe girls will win it all but you may want to research 5A girls a little better.

5A was the class where I didn't know who to pick. Maybe if y'all would post information as it happened instead of waiting until I've posted and just bashing then I could make a more informed pick

6A Girls-
Greenwood is 6-6 & Parkview is 3-6

Russellville is 11-0 with two very good seniors leading the way and a new Coach that is coaching like she's got something to prove.

5A East is one and done. Boys and Girls. The weakest conference. The only team that has a chance to advance will be Blytheville Boys. They are strong on defense but not sure they can score enough.

Valley View and Forrest City's boys are better than Blytheville probably. I think they will be, anyway.

Epc? According to some of their posters they will be lucky to get to the regionals. Hard to understand picking against hot springs in 5a. Little rock central girls have like 6 college players on their team. Picking against defending champ episcopal or the best player in 3a at cedar ridge. Paragould girls in 5a who are traditionally good but assuming you just put a name in there to fill a spot.

That was 3A right? Since they have came back to 2A, all you hear in football is,  "this is our year". Then they choke and it's "we will win in basketball". Then it's another choke and the cycle repeats.
