The Owatonna Huskies earned a trip to the state tournament in 2020-21 and most of their key pieces return as upperclassmen this winter!  Owatonna is a true contender. 

Key Wins in 20-21 (17-4)  Lakeville South, Winona, Mankato East, Rochester Century

Oops: Shakopee, Austin, Mankato West

Moving On: Double figure scoring guard Payton Beyer was the key piece that graduated.  Owatonna dealt with a lot of injuries last season so players like Beyer had to step up, and Payton did.  He was an all league player and needs to be replaced.  Owatonna also lost a couple reserves off the bench that offered consistent play and that was Lincoln Maher and Abdi Isman.

Returning Starters (4):   The Huskies return four starters:  6’1 point guard Ty Creger Ty Creger 6'0" | PG Owatonna | 2022 State MN , 6’2 combo guard Brayden Williams Brayden Williams 6'2" | PG Owatonna | 2022 State MN , 6’1 wing Blake Burmeister Blake Burmeister 6'0" | PG Owatonna | 2023 State MN , and 6’8 center Evan Dushek Evan Dushek 6'8" | C Owatonna | 2022 State MN .  Creger had a great summer with Minnesota Select and we think he will have a big senior season.  Creger is tough, smart, consistent, and will be a nice prospect for the D3 level in college.  Williams is a Bemidji State committed guard coming off 22 plus point per game season.  Williams has another level
