Minnesota High School Basketball is back in action this Thursday and we couldn’t be more excited.  Here are some opening night games to keep an eye on! 

***This is assuming these schedules are right.  I’ve checked in two places to see if the games match and it looks like they do but of course re-schedules and/or cancellations will be a part of this season so nothing is a certainty. 

#5AAAA Maple Grove at #2AAA Totino-Grace.  The game of the night is a Northwest Suburban Conference showdown matching a sizable Crimson team with excellent wings and forwards against an Eagles squad that could be the deepest team in the state of Minnesota.  There will be true center match-ups, athletic battles on the wing, and experienced players giving both teams strong depth.  

#4A Nicollet at #8A St. Clair. A top ten Class A match-up right off the bat pits a pair of Section 2A squads looking to get a section edge on the first night.  Nicollet won both games last season - one close, one not so close - but the Cyclones have more of their top talent returning. Shane StevensonShaneStevenson6'6" | PFNicollet | 2021StateMN is a Class A All State level player though
