Looking ahead at the schedule for this week, and it’ll be an exciting one with plenty of high level conference and non-conference matchups to watch for in the metro area! I’ll preview one exciting individual matchup to watch for from Monday through Saturday!

Monday- Sam Gray vs Nico Peterson Nico Peterson 6'5" | PF St. Paul Highland Park | 2021 State MN (St. Paul Harding vs St. Paul Highland Park)- It’s a matchup of under-the-radar senior bigs in this city conference game. Sam Gray is a 6’5 forward for Harding who’s an extremely hard worker on both ends, possesses a nice array of post moves, and the strength to finish at the rim through contact. He’s an unselfish player who acts as a leader on the floor, and makes good decisions with the ball. Nico Peterson Nico Peterson 6'5" | PF St. Paul Highland Park | 2021 State MN is as long as they come, and at 6’7 with a ridiculously long wingspan, Nico can dunk the ball about as easily as anyone in the state. He runs the floor like a deer for transition buckets, can explode around the basket to finish, and will make you pay for giving him too much space around the rim. Nico is also an impact player defensively, using his length and timing to block 2.4 shots
