The opening round of the MIAA Tournament kicks off this afternoon, and we have no shortage of coverage.
For those who prefer the podcast platform, here’s an entertaining listening experience for you. The Base Path Podcast co-hosts Dan Guttenplan and Matt Feld go through the MIAA Tournament brackets, sizing up potential upsets, matchups of title contenders, favorites, and impact players. Each of the hosts also makes state championship predictions.
Feld expects the D1 state championship race to come down to the top four seeds — Franklin, Taunton, Westford Academy and Central Catholic — although he would not be surprised to see a lower-seeded team knock off one of those top seeds to advance to the D1 semifinals.
“I think the favorites are the favorites,” Feld said. “More so than last year, there are teams throughout this tournament that could make it very interesting, whether it’s ninth-seeded Bridgewater-Raynham or eighth-seeded Weymouth. They could certainly upset the apple cart.”
