Look out for Marian
But of all the teams Kosmo says to watch out for in that regional, it might not be the one you expect.
While Southfield-Lathrup, Waterford Kettering and Stoney Creek are all good teams who enjoyed successful regular seasons, it was a down season by Birmingham Marian's standards.
But the Mustangs were battle-tested by a tough schedule and routed Bloomfield Hills Andover in a Class A district final last Friday.
That's not to say Marian is the favorite and won't have a tough time of it against Stoney Creek in the second semifinal at Lake Orion on Tuesday (Lathrup and Kettering will meet in the first).
However, don't count the Mustangs out, especially with the state's best coach on the sidelines in Mary Cicerone.
- Looks like Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes is a good bet to get to the state's final four again. After surviving Marine City Cardinal Mooney in a district final, the Lakers have a nice road in a regional they'll host and would have a winnable quarterfinal game. Looks like the blue and white will head back to the land of green and white.
