Each and every year I think back to the old Minnesota High School Basketball tradition of the Metro-Outstate game.  

What was the Metro-Outstate Game you ask?  It was what Minnesota had before the All Star Series of 40 seniors from all around the state.  It was ten metro players against ten outstate talents.  So what would that game of looked like in 2021?  First, here is our participants (yes size/position is taken into consideration somewhat) of seniors.
