Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Juan Diego in quarterfinals

Edward’s evaluation: Since losing 3 of 4 during a stretch in January, Bear River has found its groove and ended the season on a six-game winning streak to earn share of Region 11 title. Opens playoffs against quality opponent in Cedar, but if the Bears advance they’ll be a notable underdog against whoever they face the rest of the tournament.
