  2. Wayzata
  3. Hopkins
  4. Chaska
  5. Maple Grove
  6. Champlin Park
  7. East Ridge
  8. Edina
  9. Eastview
  10. Duluth East

 

Notes

  • Here are ten of the 15 teams that I believe could win the state title this year.  Yes I think there are ten top 15 teams which is why Friday I will provide a top 25 for Class AAAA.
  • Why Lakeville South as number one?  They have the highest score of four categories you have to consider when talking preseason rankings: 1) returning experienced players, 2) how good they were last season, 3) the overall talent level, and 4) coaching.
  • Would I bet that South wins it all?  I would actually bet on Wayzata because I think they are the most talented team in Class AAAA basketball.  But it’s hard to put a team at #1 when they were 11-17 last season.  They have to figure out how to win consistently first.
  • Hopkins?  Oh for sure.  Don’t buy into this "Hopkins will be down" stuff at all.  Not from
