Opening Drive (Nov. 11): Joining the party

Division II-AAA begins its eight-team playoff this week after a few teams finished their regular season last Friday.

Entering the game, the West Region was a logjam with four teams tied for first place, including Pope John Paul II. When the dust finally settled, the Knights dropped to the No. 4 seed, sending them to unbeaten Brentwood Academy for the quarterfinal round.

Father Ryan hosts MUS on Friday, while MBA — which won the West Region — hosts Baylor on Saturday. The Red Raiders previously had some players in quarantine, and MBA agreed to play on Saturday in order for them to be able to compete.
