We are a full seven days into the 2023-24 season. Which of the Mr. Basketball candidates have started strong?
of Wayzata. The near five star Creighton commit opened the season with 25 points against Champlin Park. McAndrew helped push his team to a 30 point halftime lead, played a bit more in the second half, and then watched his teammates finish off a 40 point win.
of Cherry. The Tigers blew out a top 15 Deer River team by 59 points and then doubled up rival Mt. Iron-Buhl 94-47. Asuma has 23 points, seven assists and six rebounds against MIB before a very early second half seat, and Asuma had 16 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds before sitting most of the second half.
of Totino-Grace. In a season opening game with his team missing two starter level players pushed the ball some, played around the basket and on the wing and the Miami commit led his team to a nice win with 31 points, 17 rebounds and five assists. Big game in a big early spot.
of Lakeville North. Robison helped the Panthers to a 15 win over a fellow top ten team this week. He scored 34 points and while doing that Jack went over 1,000 points for his career. Impressive effort from the Wisconsin commit.
of Park Center. Has the Pirates at 2-0 and Chavis had 23 points, 10 assists, six steals and five rebounds in a blowout win over St. Louis Park. Highlights of Chavis against St. Louis Park show he is healthy and playing, and putting together impressive highlights. They also beat Champlin Park 66-51 this week.
Next Up Favorites
of Breck. Breck beat St. Paul Academy in the opener. Breck did not turn in results to the Basketball Hub and I see nothing on twitter. Heard Daniel may have been injured – he did have to get ice for an injury in the fall league recently – but I am not sure if he played or not.
of Eastview. Mekonnen had 23 points and ten rebounds in a season opening win over Rochester Mayo.
of Alexandria. Grove’s team has not played a game yet.
of St. Cloud Tech. Put 51 up against Hiawatha Collegiate to set a school record for points in a game and then came out with a few minutes to go to a nice hand from the crowd. Also had eight steals and five assists in the running time victory.
of Minnetonka. Scored 18 points pushing his team to a 17 point half time lead and a 22 point win overall against Prior Lake. Andy led his team in assists as well and took a seat midway through the second half.
of Minneapolis Washburn. Kyle’s team has not played a game yet.
of Win-E-Mac. Justin had 45 points against KCC and his team needed all of his 16 of 29 shooting to get the two score win. Had 23 in a loss to top ten Fertile-Beltrami.
of Park Center. Best shot blocker and lob finisher in the state. We do not have any totals or results but his team is 2-0.
