We scour the country for the best games and the best teams. And they're not always in the aforementioned states. Take a look at two early battles this weekend.
In Maryland, No. 27 Olney (Md.) Good Counsel takes on No. 76 Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee.
In the Kansas-Missouri region, No. 85 Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst takes on unranked but always dangerous Hutchinson (Kan.) High.
