Metamora Tournament Trivia:

Metamora's loss in last year's championship ended a 9-game tourney win streak.

The Redbirds have received one of the top four seeds in each tournament since returning in 2009.

Brothers Joe & Nate Kennell were the two Redbirds named to the 2013 all-tournament team. Joe graduated. But Nate, a junior, returns.
