The only surviving games of the anticipated Germany-Italy divisional showdowns will be held Saturday at Aviano.
The Panthers and Royals have turned the annual Division I European championship game into their own protracted rivalry as the rest of the large-school field was reduced to playing for third place.
While existing Division I teams have been able to fend off their new rivals to win championships in volleyball and basketball so far this school year, the softball diamond might be the site where the power is transferred.
Plenty of underclassman chosen on first and second teams honoring the best prep basketball players in Europe.
