The brackets were released today for this week's NHR State Tournament and the 17u field is the best we've seen in recent years.  

The Field.  The event has in the neighborhood of 250 teams total led by a pair of 17u divisions (28 in division one, 20 in division two).  The top 17u field had 11 of the top 17 teams in the state and 15 of the top 25 17u teams.  The top ten 17u teams to watch?

  • Comets Lewis (18-4)
  • Select Cave (20-8)
  • Heat Vang (14-9)
  • Northern Lakes (15-7)
  • Matrix (20-6)
  • Heat West (18-7)
  • Mentality Minnesota (12-7)
  • Minnesota Rise (14-5)
  • Fury Kallman (12-8)
  • WOTN (8-15)

The Prospects.   Who are the best players to see at this year's State Tournament?  We give you the top ten prospects from the 2019 class that will be at state this weekend but this list could easily change as we see how prospects have taken steps forward since our previous viewing.  Over half of the state's top 100 2019 prospects will be playing at NHR state.

  • 6-foot-6 wing Matt Willert of Comets Lewis
  • 6-foot-2 point guard Noah King of Comets Lewis
