For the record: The Arcs have buried pretty much everyone in their path this season. They have won four in a row since a 68-59 loss to Laurel back on Jan. 27. They are led by a pair of ultra-talented freshmen in Tatiana Mason (16.5 ppg) and Chaniyra McDowell Isaacs (14.5 ppg). But senior Brooklynn Vickers and 6-2 sophomore Jakalyn Brown can both hit double figures any night of the week, too. ... Lakewood has a strong forward in 6-foot Delaney Garcia (13.4 ppg, 7.7 rpg). The key will be if they can handle to defensive pressure Brush will throw at them and the waves of talent the Arcs have.

Kampf's pick: Brush
