(1) Cedric Tomes Cedric Tomes 5'11" | PG East Ridge | 2026 State MN vs Hayden Tibbits Hayden Tibbits 5'11" | PG Wayzata | 2023 State MN . The future vs The Veteran. Tibbits might be the January MVP in Minnesota but Tomes is scoring 13 a game for the Raptors who are playing better too.
(2) Jake Schmitt Jake Schmitt 6'1" | SG Wayzata | 2023 State MN vs Parker Wellman. Couple shooters, couple solid team players, Schmitt scores ten points a game.

(4) Isaiah Habte Isaiah Habte 6'6" | PF Wayzata | 2023 State MN vs Charlie Theis Charlie Theis 6'5" | SF East Ridge | 2024 State MN . Ex-factor. Theis comes off the bench but he brings a ton of energy and is the third option. Habte has been solid in his role.
(5) Brayden Carlson Brayden Carlson 6'9" | C East Ridge | 2024 State MN vs Jackson McAndrew Jackson McAndrew 6'9" | PF Wayzata | 2024 State #152 Nation MN . Carlson will have to step out to McAndrew at times, McAndrew has the size to defend around the hoop.
Prediction: Wazyata by nine points.
6AAAA Eastview at Farmington
Elias Batala Elias Batala 6'1" | PG Eastview | 2023 State MN vs Baiden Bean Baiden Bean 6'1" | PG Farmington | 2023 State MN . Batala and Bean are leaders of good backcourts that also include Dylan Omweno Dylan Omweno 6'0" | PG Eastview | 2023 State MN , Connor Todd, and Robert Conver. Good players.
Mario Adams Mario Adams 6'6" Eastview | 2023 MN vs Nik Domier. Mario is an agile veteran scoring 10 a game, Domier scores three/four baskets a contest as a 6’5 sophomore
Chet Kloss Chet Kloss 6'6" | PF Eastview | 2023 State MN vs Tyler Beckwith Tyler Beckwith 6'4" | SF Farmington | 2024 MN . Kloss is a CSP grinder around the basket, Beckwith is 6’5 and also a veteran who scores four/five times a game.
Jonathan Mekonnen Jonathan Mekonnen 6'8" | PF Eastview | 2024 State #178 Nation MN vs Brandon Hrncir Brandon Hrncir 6'7" | PF Farmington | 2024 State MN . Great match-up of versatile forwards in the junior class getting D1 interest.
Prediction: Tough one, Eastview has won so many close games as of late I will take them by four.
10A Lakeview at 1A RTR
Nathan Fenske Nathan Fenske 6'2" | SG Lakeview | 2023 State MN vs Hayden Gravely. Gravely put up good numbers in the first game and helped limit Fenske to 7 of 20 shooting. Will be tough to do that again.
Kai Drake vs Aidan Wichmann. Both players did a lot of different things in game one, Wichmann did not play great but was all around.
Lincoln Vogel vs Drew Werkman Drew Werkman 6'5" | PF RTR | 2024 State MN . Werkman is averaging 20 points and nine boards shooting 70 percent. Vogel is one that will have to limit Werkman.
Prediction: RTR at home by 11 points.
Hermantown at Esko
Abraham Soumis vs Koi Perich. Soumis is having a great year and he will need to have a great game to limit Perich who is a 25 a game talent.
Blake Schmitz Blake Schmitz 6'0" | PG Hermantown | 2023 State MN vs Cuinn Berger Cuinn Berger 6'1" | SG Esko | 2023 State MN . A pair of hard working all around playmaking guards.
Prediction: Hermantown depth gets them a five point road win.
8AAAA Buffalo at 7AAAA Hopkins
Nate Dahl Nate Dahl 6'0" | PG Buffalo | 2023 State MN vs Jayden Moore Jayden Moore 6'0" | PG Hopkins | 2026 State MN . The senior who is scoring 25ppg having an amazing season against one of the best freshman guards in the nation who scores 20 a game. Should be a ton of fun.
Prediction: Hopkins get the three point win.
