Howard (6-5 county, 9-13 overall – No. 6 seed Section II 4A North Region)
Worst Case: As good as the team’s defense has been — four straight games holding the opposition under 50 points — it turns out to be hard to duplicate in the playoffs. Against Springbrook in the opening round, the Howard team shows up that averaged 64.4 points against in the eight games before this current winning streak. In turn, the Lions’ offense is unable to get into a rhythm and it leads to a loss by double digits.
