Six-foot junior guard Luke Paulson of Wayzata is giving his team 13-14 a game this season now that he’s become a more versatile player for the Trojans. Paulson spoke basketball with Prep Hoops this afternoon.
‘Things have been well so far although our record doesn’t compare to last years,” Paulson said. “A lot of new guys have stepped up and its fun to see the progress they’re all making. We as a team have been improving a lot through the season.”
The Trojans are coming off a 16 point win over Minnetonka and they beat Eden Prairie earlier in the month. Playing with Drew Galinson and Jacob Beeninga to form one of the better metro backcourts, Paulson likes how his game has improved from his sophomore to his junior year.
“Last year I was a shooter that came off the bench,” Paulson said. This year I’ve improved a lot with attacking the rim and creating my own shot. I’m also a lot stronger than I was last season.”
Paulson and Wayzata have tonight’s game with the Hornets and then it’s playoff time. The Trojans are likely to be the 2 seed in Section 6AAAA. Hopkins is the favorite but Wayzata knows them well.
“We have one regular season game left at Edina, it should be a really fun game. For the playoffs we are excited to try and make a deep run.”
Paulson has started to hear from some of the best programs in the MIAC as well.
“I have been talked to a lot by St Thomas,” Luke said. “And St Johns has sent me a lot of letters, some other D3s have as well.”
