<2>Teams

Apple Valley.  Received a nice gift for section play after two titles in three years.

Burnsville.  Blaze return Tucker Shepley and Jason Gumm, add Aloung Kang. Nice team.

Eagan.  Last year’s biggest disappointment has to regroup around Sam Schuberg.

Eastview. Like the Mitchell, Carpenter, Ryan, and Bryan backcourt, very good.

Hastings. You couldn’t help but be happy for the seniors last year, but what’s next?

Henry Sibley. Coach James is in year six of his Warrior reign.  Won 2 games last year.

Park.  The Wolfpack had five wins last year and honestly, that’s progress.

Rosemount.  A sleeper team.  Loehr twins should break out, good guards too. 

Ten Thoughts

1. Apple Valley couldn’t have asked for a better section.They should be able to smash and then chill the first two games and then face a scrappy squad to play for state.

2. In terms of the state tournament, you have to like this.You will either get Apple Valley to state without knocking off another draw, or you will get an upset of the century candidate in the section final.Either way, works out.

3. The Eagles, they bring back all of their starters and Aaron Ertz is nice
