Atholton — No. 4 seed (3A East, Section I)

Record: 8-8 county, 11-12 overall

Best case: The big three — junior guards Casey Parkins, Justin Oates and Maxwell Murray — ratchet up their offensive production to a whole new level to reverse Atholton's recent scoring woes. After a two-point win over Long Reach in the regular season finale, the Raiders blitz the Lightning from the tip and cruise to a double-digit victory. The trio then has its way with Centennial and either Mt. Hebron or Reservoir, none of which can keep up with the Raiders at this point. The junior-heavy squad settles for a sectional title and builds some serious momentum for next season.
