With the Final Five around the corner we are watching the ten finalists closely. Most were in action last night and here is how they performed.


Apple Valley’s Tre Jones. Tre had a massive game in a close victory over Farmington.  Jones scored 33 points on 11 of 21 shooting including 8 of 10 foul shots.  Tre also had five assists, four rebounds, and a very important seven steals.  It was a massive game for Minnesota’s lastest McDonald’s All American.

Caledonia’s Owen King.  The Warriors are off until Thursday when they play their first section game against Chatfield.

CDH’s Daniel Oturu.  Oturu intimidated around the bucket, grabbed boards, and blocked shots as usual, but didn’t have that many shots as Chatman had a huge game and Oturu scored four times next to him.

CDH’s Sy Chatman.  The Raiders beat Roseville and the Chatman 31 point explosion led to the win.  After a tougher game against Woodbury, Chatman completely exploded on the Roseville Raiders for his massive game which was the second highest total of his season.

Delano’s Calvin Wishart.  Delano lost a close contest to Waconia but Wishart gave his team everything he had.  Wishart blitzed the Cats defense for 43 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists.

DeLaSalle’s Gabe Kalscheur. The Islanders easily handled Saint Anthony last night but Gabe scored 29 before his early seat on the bench.  Gabe has scored 90 points in his last three games making 72 percent of his shots and 56 percent of his threes.

Minneapolis North’s Odell Wilson.  North beat Edison 101-48 and Odell had 20 points as one of five guys in double figures.

Monticello’s Matt Todd.  The Magic lost to Rogers last night meaning they have lost 7 of their last 11.  Matt gave his team 29 points and five rebounds on 10 of 29 shooting for the game.

Orono’s Jarvis Omersa.  The Spartans crushed Hutchinson so Jarvis played about a third of the game.  Jarvis scored four times (8 points), with eight boards, four steals, and three assists.

Woodbury’s Michael Jones.  The Royals wing went up against Edina last night and his team lost another close game to a top team near the buzzer.  Jones missed the late shot that would of tied the game meaning Michael scored 19 points on 7 of 17 shooting with six rebounds.  Michael became the all time leading scorer at Woodbury in last night’s game.
