Regional 2 has some talented players and teams that could advance deep into the tournament. Here is a preview of the Region and my predictions.
March 30 and April 1
Tyson Davis Tyson Davis 5'10" | PG Goodrich | 2021 State MI (2021, PG, Goodrich)
Davis is one of the top pure athletes in the state of Michigan. Needless to say, that will make him a nightmare for opponents when the ball is in his hands.
Aidan Rubio Aidan Rubio 6'6" | SF Goodrich | 2021 State MI (2021, SF, Goodrich)
Rubio is a terrific talent and one of the best wings in Michigan. He can score from all 3 levels and plays with an aggressive game that allows him to turn momentum at the blink of an eye.
Tyler Johnson Tyler Johnson 6'5" | SG Croswell-Lexington | 2021 State MI (2021, SG, Croswell-Lexington)
Johnson is a huge reason why Croswell-Lexington has had a storybook season so far. His shooting and playmaking are a huge part of his teams success.
Hunter Soper Hunter Soper 6'5" | SG Croswell-Lexington | 2021 State MI (2021, SF, Croswell-Lexington)
Soper, the best player to ever wear a Cros-Lex jersey, will not let his team be an easy out. Soper is an underrated athlete that can finish above the rim.
Emmanuel Hunter (2021, SG, New Haven)
Hunter is a shifty guard and can be a tough cover. It will be big for New Haven if he has his A game.
Brent Wiles (2021, G/F, New Haven)
Wiles is a well rounded wing that can put his imprint all over a scorebook. He has some explosiveness that helps make New Haven a threat.
Jacob Bendtsen (2021, PF, Pontiac Notre Dame Prep)
Bendtsen has been a consistent force and his team will rely on his athleticism and consistency.
Jack Olis (2022, SF, Pontiac Notre Dame Prep)
Olis is coming off possibly the best game of his high school career. If he stays hot, it’s a huge plus for Notre Dame Prep.

New Haven vs. Pontiac Notre Dame Prep
Prediction: New Haven
Croswell-Lexington vs. New Haven
Prediction: Croswell-Lexington / Goodrich
* So here’s my explanation. Deep down, I think Cros-Lex will win it. But I’ve learned my lesson with Aidan Rubio Aidan Rubio 6'6" | SF Goodrich | 2021 State MI . Unless I’m 100% sure, I’m not picking against him. This game could be an instant classic. Let’s call it a push.
