Conference Commentary

Top Contenders:  Albany, Mora, Little Falls

The Huskies lost their top couple scorers but return two starters and a couple quality reserves.  After a 17 win season Albany will surely be in the mix once again.

Mora has some good junior guards ready for a bigger role. The team with the most talent returning is Little Falls (5 of top 7 guys).  

Compete with Most: Pierz, Foley, Milaca, Zimmerman

The Pierz Pioneers were the third best squad in the league last season led by four double figure scoring seniors.  There is a group of seniors ready to move from role players to leaders.
