Taft, OG and Africentric have to be all expected to make it back to Dayton
I am not disagreeing with that at all, but Lutheran East is a virtual lock to be back in Dayton as well. Lutheran East is the heavy favorite to win the D3 state title and could be the best team in the state regardless of division. Not many teams have the ability to start four players 6'8" or taller. This should be The Lue's best team they have ever put on the floor.

I believe Luthern East & O-G will face off early this year at the ASVSM classic in December?
 
Taft lost a lot and also bumped, and I haven't heard about any big transfers. Probably a big step backwards this season.
Taft has Bostic from Woodward and I believe a few transfers from out of state I don't expect them to fall off they have a team built to Coach Brad's likes long athletic and ready to press. And Elmer D1 commit should take a bigger role for them

Harvest Prep will meet Taft for an early season game. Harvest Prep should be a fringe top-10 team in the division, but they do not have the depth or talent to win State this year.

Lutheran East is my preseason #1 in D3. I am hoping to watch Lutheran East play Ottawa Glandorf in Dayton in March.

One thing to factor in is that OG was finally down in football for a year so they won't be starting 2-4 weeks late this year for the first time in a while.

Taft is D2 not D3

OG will be tested plenty of times before the tourney starts. Dec 10th at SVSM against Lutheran West then on Dec 17th at the Kewpee Classic at Lima Senior against Cincinnati Princeton. Also a Feb game in the OG winter Classic vs Lakota East. Add in regular season matchups with Lima Senior, Findlay, Lexington & Rossford

Milton-Union and Miami East from the TRC will be very tough this year. Curtis Enis' son is a stud for the Vikings of Miami East and MU returns 95% of their TRC Championship team from 21-22 this year. They will get a late start while the same kids play on the football team that is playing for a D5 Regional title.
Very tough league with Troy Christian, Northridge and Bethel on the slate.
