A pair of top ten teams with state title hopes finish off the Breakdown Big 12 Classic Saturday night when Eastview faces the host team Champlin Park.

PGJaylen James (Eastview) vs Joshua Strong (Champlin Park).    James is a steady lead guard moving into the starting role while Strong has little varsity experience but is considered one of the top three lead guards in Minnesota's junior class.  Strong may need to score more, Eastview likely needs James to just get the ball to the needed spots and score when open.  

SGCaden Scales (Eastview) vs ? (Champlin Park).  Caden is the ex-factor here.  He's a 6-foot-1 guard that scores four times a contest and is a player his team counts on for strong defense and the right offensive play.  Don't forget about Scales because he can make a Walter impact.  Who starts for CP? Total mystery.  They could go young with potential in Dylan Gichaba, put a second ball handler on the floor in TJ Moberg allowing Strong off ball, use Jaice Miller, or maybe go really big with Ethan Rens.  

SFRyan Thissen (Eastview) vs Jared Walter (Champlin Park).  Walter impact?  Jared Walter is one of the best players that doesn't need shot attempts
