Class 1A/2A boys' basketball pairings see tough Hoopeston Regional

Class 1A and 2A boys' basketball postseason pairings came out Friday afternoon and displayed a doozy of a regional alignment in Hoopeston Area.

Despite strong seasons from the likes of Monticello, Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley and Hoopeston Area, only one — or possibly one of Paxton-Buckley-Loda, Bismarck-Henning/Rossville-Alvin and St. Thomas More — will be able to win a 2A regional crown this season.
