Who's going to win the Class B1 boys title?

All season long the talk has been that Class A1 would be the toughest, deepest, most loaded bracket.

But maybe it is B1? There are five league champions in East Aurora (ECIC III), Olean (CCAA I), Medina (co-champs of Niagara-Orleans), Lackawanna and Alden (both co-champs of ECIC IV).

So who's going to win? Who will spring the big upset? What's your favorite matchup?
