Vero Beach hosts Deerfield Beach in Playoffs
There’s one Treasure Coast area team still alive in the playoffs. The regional finals are tonight, and Vero Beach will be hosting Deerfield Beach. Vero is an undefeated 11-0 on the season and the top seed in their region. Deerfield Beach is 9-3 and the third seed in the region. They are also the defending regional champions from last year. For Vero, their defense has been phenomenal all year, and with the exception of Treasure Coast nobody has scored more than 14 points against them. But this might be their toughest challenge, with Deerfield Beach averaging over 40 points per game this season. Kickoff is scheduled for tonight at 7:30. The winner advances to the state final four.
