Final Thoughts

This section has only six teams, like the football sections of nearly 20 years ago.  Hibbing was a top team last year and although they have a Mr. Basketball candidate in Ayden McDonald Ayden McDonald 6'4" | PG Hibbing | 2022 State MN , they did lose most of their veteran line-up from a year ago.  Cloquet might have the most talent returning but the question will be, is it enough to stop Ayden and the Bluejackets?  Grand Rapids and Hermantown each have a standout but do they have the depth to challenge?  The section is small and the section could be wide open, it all depends on
