The 2019-20 boys basketball season starts all across the state and today let's take a quick look at the 1A level with our pre-season top five and the projected All-State Team.

Pre-Season Top Five

1. Nixyaawii
2. Trinity Lutheran
3. Life Christian
4. Triad
5. Crosshill Christian

Analysis: Trinity Lutheran will have most everyone back including the high-scoring Matt Eidler and Life Christian has some talented transfers, but Nixyaawii with most of its team returning seems to have everything in place to repeat as 1A champs.

All-State Predictions

Mick Schimmel, Nixyaawii (POY)
Matt Eidler, Trinity Lutheran
Blake Lambert, Life Christian
Ethan Moritz, Triad
Taysin Burns, Nixyaawii

Analysis: There's no question Eidler will score a ton of points and may end up among the state's all-time leaders in scoring. But when it comes down to it it's the best player on the best team for player of the year and that appears to be Schimmel.
