Chaminade Julienne making it to the final four in D2. Team dominated by underclassmen. No transfers. Suffered 2 ten day covid forced furloughs during the season. Not even expected to win their league, which they did not. Upset the #2ranked team in the state in the Regionals, Tipp City. Led by a freshman.

CJ lost Nauseef and Solomon.... Have a 6'7 strong athletic kid inside kept CJ in most games. If they don't have a big man inside who can get physical and some sort of offensive skill set, then CJ is going to be relying on handing consistent shooting hands. If they're cold one night, they'll get shredded. And not discrediting CJ's state run, but Tipp City wasn't that good and a #2 ranking by playing just MVL games only this past didn't prepare them at all. Tipp wanted that "perfect regular season" record....

Tipp wasn't "perfect" as they lost regular season final to Mason 72-57 so that reason isn't correct. CJ was good, but I'm thinking they were a bit concerned at 42-28 at the half and still down 50-41 going into the 4th quarter to finally win by 3 as Tipp missed 7 free throws, mostly in the 4th quarter----Tipp had an excellent D2 team and its hard to knock a 3 point loss in the regional semi finals. CJ was happy to have survived to get to play Watterson I imagine.
