Skinny: Defending 2A state champion Potomac is the favorite again, despite losing All-Met guard Dion Wiley (Maryland) and powerful big man Quadree Smith to graduation. The Wolverines will be led by Memphis commit Randall Broddie, who emerged as the definitive star on a star-studded roster last year, and will be joined in another potent backcourt by Parkdale transfer Kaine Wilson. . . .

Largo, which emerged as Potomac’s main in-league competition last season, will likely be so again. The Lions are led by Quinnipiac-commit Abdulai Bundu, a defensive force and offensive presence who presents matchup problems for nearly every team in the county. . . .

Douglass lost all but one starter from last year’s team, but junior Cameron Hayes and sophomore Donald Carey have the talent to turn the Eagles into a contender again. . . . Gwynn Park lost six of its top seven scorers from last season’s 16-8 team, but the Yellow Jackets are annual locks at the top of the league. . . . Central lost its five leading scorers from last year’s state semifinal team, but in a wide open 1A race, the Falcons could find their way back into the later rounds of the playoffs.
