While the level of talent may not be as strong as the SeMissourian is, I do find these games to be more competitive and an more pleasant fan base, however if I stay the whole day I do usually get a headache about the 5th game from all of the noise.

Depending on how kennett performance is this week they will definitely receive the 1 or 2 seed.

If Kennett can win both this week, they have Malden at home tomorrow night and then go to Portageville Friday, they will be #1 seed no doubt.

I believe I read where portageville lost to Twin Rivers by about 15, and I don't see TR hanging with Kennett for 4 quarters. As for Malden I can't say.

As for 2 seed I'd give it to south pem. But I'm sure Bernie will get it.

I don't think the Top 8 seedings will accurately reflect how the teams will finish this season at the tournament. With this being said I'm not sure it will make much difference what order the top four teams are seeded in. The No. 1 seed might end up playing the best team in the tournament in the semifinals. We will have to wait and see how the seedings fall.
