The Decatur boys won seven of their last eight down the stretch and finished the regular season with a 12-3 record. The only loss during that stretch was a 12-10 defeat to Bayside South rival Bennett last Wednesday.

If the brackets follow the seedings, Decatur would get a rematch with Bennet in the sectional final. The top seed on the other side of the 3A-East regional bracket is Centennial.
