A buddy of mine, who was born, raised and remains in the State of Ada, always engages in the same ol' debate this time of year: Which region of Idaho has the best bball teams. Frankly over the past 5 years, no region (North, Treasure Valley, Magic Valley, East) has produced more champion teams (boys and girls) than East Idaho. Of course, he always counters that 5A is the only classification that really matters, everything else is exhibition! :)
My argument is this: given that the population base is HEAVILY concentrated in the Treasure Valley, the fact that they don't dominate more of the championships means they are grossly under-performing!
Here's the stats (credit to IHSAA website) if you ever want to get into your own regional debate!
