Prep state basketball tournament? Diehl me in, baby!

Sure, Pennsylvania has Punxsutawney Phil.

But New Mexico has Adam Diehl.

He’s the guy I’m waiting to hear from about the what will happen in six weeks when the big school titles are awarded.

I can’t say I’m too interested in some rodent’s shadow in the middle of the woods — unless, of course, he’s taking a supporting role next to Bill Murray — but I am more than curious to hear what ProView Networks’ high school guru predicts for New Mexico’s greatest show on hardwood.

Each Wednesday, Enchantment Sports will publish Diehl’s prep hoop Bracketology as we approach next month’s state basketball championships.

Diehl has established himself as the go-to-guy in the prep world. He has been spot-on in football and basketball seedings, and we are pleased that he will share his insight with Enchantment Sports.

The prep hoop championship is truly is the most exciting event the state offers, and Enchantment Sports plans to be there — covering the games that Adam tells us are the best.
