They hit a rough patch with injuries and players being out in the season. Things came together at the right time and it's good to see teams reach their full potential when it matters most.In defense of East, they beat Walnut Hills (6) and then Milford (5). According to the seeds they didn't do much different on Monday than they did on the Thursday prior. Maybe you're underestimating East and even overestimating Milford. Watching the game Monday I didn't see a significant difference in talent on the field.
