Wrapping up our Section Preview Series is 8AAAA, a section that seems likely on its way to another rematch in the section final. Here's the lineup:

1. Maple Grove (20-6)

2. Buffalo (20-6)

3. Moorhead (20-5)

4. St. Michael-Albertville (19-7)

5. Brainerd (15-11)

6. Rogers (11-15)

7. Elk River (6-20

8. St. Cloud Tech (7-19)

Contenders: Buffalo, Maple Grove

These two teams are as close as you get in section 8 competition. Buffalo took the head-to-head meeting 75-70 back in January. Thing about the Bison is they can look like a top-10 team one night and then disappear into a bad 36 minutes very quickly. The all-junior, one-freshman lineup of Brandon Maatz, Matthew Willert, Tony Dahl, Aidan Bouman and Antonio Bluiett has cohesion, shooting, athleticism, size and grit. They will all return next year but who says they have to wait their turn until being seniors?
