High School Boys’ Basketball Postseason Brackets: Mt. Pleasant Hosts First-Round Matchup

Prep Boys’ Basketball- Class 3A and 4A released their playoff brackets and here is a look at what Mt. Pleasant’s substate looks like.

Mt. Pleasant has had a phenomenal season, winning as many as 12 games in a row, which earns them a first-round home game against Fort Madison. The Panthers have bested the Bloodhounds in both matchups this season, but Fort Madison almost shocked the Panthers at home as the Bloodhounds put up 29 points in the fourth quarter coming up just short in the comeback effort, 59-58. They will play the winner of Solon going against Keokuk. The Chiefs have the most recent win over the Spartans back in 2020, but Solon holds the historical advantage in the last four games. These games will be the bottom of the Substate 6 backet.

The top of the Substate 6 bracket will be Newton hosting Oskaloosa and Fairfield traveling to play conference foe, Washington. The Demons are 2-0 against the Trojans this season, winning game one 71-67 and game two 62-49.

All first-round matchups will be played on February 20th at 7 pm.
