It’s Tuesday night and time for some outstanding basketball! Here is our list of match-ups to see and the match-ups within those match-ups you should know about!
2AAA Mahtomedi at 10AAA St. Thomas Academy
(1)vs . Couple guys that can make shots and can create shots, both playing very well.
(2)vs . Underwood is a Mr. Basketball top ten candidate while Jack is back and playing well after missing nine games.
(3)vs . Fourth option hard working players.
(4)vs . A couple 6’2/6’3 leading scorer type players, both are all league and capable of huge games.
(5) Javan Harvey vs. Undersized hard working frontcourt players, Harvey has the experience edge.
Our Prediction…… Mahtomedi has too many experience edges in the line-up and that Carlson/Underwood duo is one of the best 1-2 punches in the state. Zephrys by ten points.
2AAAA Lakeville North at 10AAAA Lakeville South
vs . Love this junior match-up, different players but both highly productive, both have come up big late in games.
vs . Versatile juniors with size that can handle, play around the cup, and be versatile wings.
vs . The seniors, Vaith is the North second leading scorer, Ressler can play four spots.
Reece Gerl vs. Gerl is the big to work on Winter and use all five fouls, Winter is a top Mr. Basketball candidate when healthy.
Our Prediction… South had won six of seven after losing Marley for the season but they were just upset by Burnsville. Can they bounce back and pull the upset? Don’t think so, North by a dozen.
Northfield at Owatonna
vs . The PG match-up, the sophomore vs the veteran, both are playing really well
vs Jason Klecker. Soren came in as the preseason Big Nine player of the year at at 23 a game with his team in first he’s holding that spot. Klecker is a fun story scoring a dozen a game as a 6’5 forward who played JV last year.
vs . Both players are playmakers scoring 15/16 a game.
Our Prediction… Both teams are in a tie for first after Northfield beat Mankato East twice last week! This could go either way, we take the home team by a score.
Minneapolis North at 8AAAA East Ridge
vs Caylon Redd. A couple of ball handlers, Tomes being one of the top frosh in the state, Redd a nice story playing well given his chance.
vs Zashon Rich. Mattes is a scholarship talent headed to U of Mary, Rich is a scholarship football guy also getting 15 a game on the court.
Our Prediction… North has beaten DeLaSalle, but also lost their many year losing streak in the city conference. North has been hammered by several out of state teams, but has held their own in state. So tonight? Who knows. I just say East Ridge by five.
6AAAA Buffalo at 4AAAA Minnetonka
vs . very much got the better of the junior in the first game but Tonka got the win, what happens tonight? I think Andy plays better, Tonka plays better and wins by six.
