Wilde Lake — No. 4 seed (2A South, Section I)

Record: 8-8 county, 9-13 overall

Best case: All of Wilde Lake's contributors enhance their respective strengths. Junior guard Trea Keys averages 25 points, while senior forward George Hunter wreaks havoc offensively from the foul line inwards. Marc Marshall and Marcus Mitchell drill their open 3-pointers. PJ Joseph locks down the opponents' best player. George Van Tassel hosts a one-man block party. With everyone chipping in, Wilde Lake rattles off wins over Marriotts Ridge, River Hill and Oakland Mills in 2A South, Section I. The Wildecats then handle Southern for their first region title since 1991. Their historic season ends in the state semifinals, a feat even more impressive based on how poorly they started the season.
