Outlook: In a wide-open race with more questions than answers, Steinmetz and Payton rate the role of favorites with emerging program Alcott the dark horse candidate.

Top five players

Davion Benton, Alcott, G, Sr.; Allen Loggins, Alcott, F, Sr.; Matt Rivera, Steinmetz, G, Sr.; Keyonte Sutton, North Grand, F, Jr.; Anthony Tripp, Roosevelt, G, Jr.

Did you know? Defending Green-North champion Alcott is the only squad in the six-team conference that finished with a winning record last year.

Predicted finish: Payton, Steinmetz, Alcott, Roosevelt, Senn, North Grand
