It’s never too early for too-early-season. With fall sports and school underway, it’s only a matter of time before the winter sports season is upon us. 

With that in mind, here’s a look at the top backcourts in Class B

Oakes is going to be a top-10 team in Class B and perhaps the favorite in Region 3 in large part because of the dynamic backcourt pairing of Hansen and Meehl. Hansen averaged 19 points and 10 rebounds while shooting better than 50 percent from the field and 36 percent from the 3-point line. If he improves his free throw shooting percentage (63%), he could easily average 20-plus points per game. Hansen stuffed the stat sheet too, averaging better than 17 points, six rebounds and nearly five assists while shooting 34 percent from the 3-point line. Those two guys get it done on both ends of the court too. If they can cut down on their turnovers (7.2 combined per game), they are going to lead Oakes to a lot of wins.
