As we get to the end of Round 2, there’s just four more slots to fill in the Sweet 16. nicks on broadway is favored over Mission for one of those positions. But with Perro Salado out of the picture, Mission is Newport’s last chance. The winner will face north for the division championship.
Over on the other side of the bracket, Ebisu and Kings Garden are on the same side of the same street, just a short walk away from one another, although the street changes names and technically they’re in two different cities. Ebisu got pretty far last year, but Kings Garden has had a big resurgence in the past year. Odds are slightly in Ebisu’s favor, but really this one could go either way.
