When looking at the Greater Metro Conference boys baskteball race, I can't see anyone beating a talented Menomonee Falls team (6-3), led by everyone's favorite recruit, J.P. Tokoto. West Allis Central is 7-1, so they also have to be dealt with, and Hamilton is 6-4.
Although not as talented as in the past, Marquette (2-5) should be in the race and Wauwatosa East (3-7) might also be formidable.
This ain't brain surgery, but barring injury or suspensions, I don't think there is going to be much of a race for the Greater Metro Conference title in boys basketball.
Menomonee Falls has done a good job so far and has lived up to expectations as the pre-season favorite. I don't see anyone catching them. In fact, if they lose more than one conference game I will be surprised. Star guard JP Tokoto is a fun player to watch and the Indians have great senior balance.
He is only a sophomore, but at 6-foot-6-inch Darrell Bowie could be the key to Wauwatosa East's season the rest of the way.
Bowie, who is averaging 10.8 points per game, stepped up big time last weekend. He scored 19 points and grabbed four rebounds against first-place Menomonee Falls in a 72-64 loss, but he put on quite a show along with the Indians' JP Tokoto.
