The Park Center Pirates went 23-5 a season ago and were set to play Spring Lake Park for the section title when the season was cancelled.  The Pirates lost five of the best 50 seniors in the state to graduation so there is much to replace, but Park Center has more talent stepping in than many realize.  

Key Wins in 19-20 (23-5):  Hopkins, Osseo, Prior Lake, Spring Lake Park, Champlin Park, Totino-Grace, Armstrong, Mounds View

Oops: Minnehaha Academy, Eden Prairie, Maple Grove, Armstrong, East Ridge

Moving On: Dain DainjaDainDainja6'9" | CPark Center | 2020State#48NationMN was one of the best players in Minnesota last year and he is now at Baylor sitting out his first season. Joshua Brown is at Minnesota-Duluth, Josh Grigsby is a walk-on at Wyoming, DT Frierson landed at Cloud County JC in Kansas, and David IjadimbolaDavidIjadimbola6'2" | PGPark Center | 2020StateMN is playing for Dakota Wesleyan.  Also graduating was guard Josh LewisJoshLewis6'0" | SGPark Center | 2020StateMN meaning Park Center has to replace six of their top seven scorers! 

Returning Starter: When Park Center played Mounds View last March in the playoffs they started all seniors.  In looking at their Osseo film the Pirates also started five seniors although it was a different combination of seniors.
