TIC Media Preseason Poll – Garrigan, Lake Mills, Saint Ansgar, West Fork Picked First

Some of the Top of Iowa girls’ basketball teams will start their season tomorrow, and with that, here are the TIC media picks in both divisions for both boys and girls. West Fork is the first boys’ team to be picked unanimously as the top team. Last year, the West Hancock girls were the only team picked unanimously, and they shared the title with Bishop Garrigan. Three of the divisions were shared; the only expectation was the Bishop Garrigan boys, who won the TIC West outright over Lake Mills. This year, Lake Mills is picked to win the West boys race following their first appearance at Wells Fargo Arena.

With the caliber of teams laying in the weeds and the uncertainty with COVID-19, each division is a three or four-team race.

The TIC media started it’s TIC Preseason Media poll before the 2019-2020 season.
