RECORDS: Dorman 23-4; Dutch Fork 28-0

KEY PLAYERS: Dutch Fork’s Alaina Coates, Sydney Shull; Dorman’s Kenya Olley and KJ Jones

OUTLOOK: On paper, the Cavaliers have narrowly outperformed the undefeated Silver Foxes. Dorman has averaged 62.7 points and 35.7 rebounds per game, compared to the Silver Foxes’ 57.4 points and 29.9 rebounds. But the battle between Olley and Coates at the boards may tip the scale in Dutch Fork’s favor.
