The Breakdown Tip Off Classic is a week and a half away, and it’s a day that all Minnesota high school basketball fans look forward to. Here are the top ten games at the event!
(1). Totino-Grace (1AAA) vs Lakeville North (2AAAA). The headliner is the(Ohio State) and (Wisconsin) headliner, the two biggest names in the senior class in the same game. In addition, (Furman) and (Wisconsin) are in this game as well.
(2). Hayfield (1A) vs Cherry (2A). The Cherry/Hayfield rivalry is budding and this game will be a headliner because they are the top Class A title contenders PLUS Cherry has– a top junior – and he will go against the returning Class A Player of the Year .
(3). Holy Family (1AA) vs PEM (2AA). Another 1 vs 2, it’s(Butler) and (PEM), it’s and , it’s two of the state’s better coaches, it’s teams that have depth in addition to top talent. It’s going to be one of the top games of the season.
(4). Wayzata (3AAAA) vs Eastview (4AAAA). The Trojans and the Lightning are two of the deepest teams in the state and in this game you get teams that go 8-9 deep and you get a top junior match-up ofand .
(5). DeLaSalle (2AAA) vs Minnetonka (6AAAA). The Islanders and the Skippers are very good guard teams with strong athletes that match-up really well. Love theand (Lehigh) match-up, love the defenders that the Islanders have going at the athletes that the Skippers have. And neither team has real big so it’s a perfect match-up.
(6). Orono (3AAA) vs Minnehaha Academy (3AA). So many excellent match-ups includingand up front, and in the backcourt, and a lot of other good guards and wings around them.
(7). East Ridge (5AAAA) vs Osseo (7AAAA). These are top ten teams with depth, with athletes, with top guard play, and with size. The(U of Mary) and (UMD) match-up is going to draw the most eyes but Ced Tomes and Demari Larkins would also be a lot of fun.
(8). Mahtomedi (4AAA) vs Stewartville (6AAA). Here we have a big group of guards for both teams,and is likely the most interesting battle but both teams have a lot of depth that will make this a great game.
(9). Lake City (4AA) vs Minneapolis North (10AA).(Upper Iowa) and are the seniors, and Datrell McCrimmon are excellent juniors, and both teams have depth that go beyond that.
(10). Bloomington Jefferson vs Hopkins. Jefferson and Hopkins are top ten potential teams and they have two of the most exciting players in the state inand .
