2024 MN High School Basketball State Tournaments







One should make a video of the way Cherry passes the ball and market it to every level of basketball.
They basically have 5 interchangeable guards/wings and no post up offense. All 5 are super talented, could be the leading scorer on any number of teams. That there best and most SR player is very unselfish rubs off on the entire team.

I am not sure it’s any specific design except to push the ball and in the half court to drive and kick for three. Your just watching some very talented players.

When I turned that game on it was 33-24 in the 2nd half with 12 minutes to play and FB leading. After that, both teams started hitting shots. FB had their best player foul out with about 2 minutes left in regulation and I thought WCA was going to win, but then FB dug deep and found a way to win It turned out to be the game of the tournament so far.

(I hope I'm wrong, but I could see all 4 Title games being fairly one-sided.)
 


Some some clever young graphic designer recognize the coolness of the Red owl label, bought the copyrights and has sold lot of hats t-shirts and coffee mugs to the hip young crowd.

Another million dollar idea I had!

First muffin tops and now this đŸ¤¬

Dave Lee saying ahhh - sum-wah. Is that how that name is pronounced? I have no idea
 


Watch this next game with Frietag and Breck to see the difference between Frietag and Asuma. Frietag is more of a score first point guard who uses his teammates. Asuma is a silent assassin who has incredible court vision. I look forward to seeing the two square off in college. I think we got the better teammate.
 

First time I can remember seeing the starting line ups not running through the player tunnel to mid court?
 


Caiden Swenby is going to be a steal for MN Crookston. Noah Sundquist also showed very well. Cherry might be the best 1A team I can recall in a long time. Their patience and team philosophy is impressive

Glad we got him. But I do want the better player too. This player going to Miami from Totino is better than either of them.
 


He has a perfect point guard mentality. Let the others get points and just keep finding them with assists.
Agreed but think it would help if we could find another Junior PG to backup Hawkins this yearh in the portal, so Asuma can start with 5-15 min/game developing. Then the PG would be a Senior for Asuma's Sophomore year and then Asuma can take full reigns Junior and Senior years. Be a great setup for CBJ to establish a development of PG to help recruiting/transfers etc.
 

McAndrew is a stud, too bad there wasn’t more interest on either side.

Stefonowicz for Minnetonka is a really nice player too. Committed to NDSU.
 

The Refs in this Wayzata/Minnetonka game are letting them play. It's turning into a rugby match both ways. Yikes.
