A Crown Prince Roaming Weekend Rewind

After a long weekend visit from the Crown Prince, its back to the real world and status quo.  He drinks Pellegrino water faster than I drink Pepsi.  Plenty of good hoops on the docket to show him.  Not to mention the forever shootout in the Wild game vs the Ducks.  Here are some of the brief highlights of the games we saw plus my trip back to reality.

Thursday: Prior Lake 52 Edina 50
Story here was the front line of Prior Lake.  Robert Jones approached double digit blocks as he was swatting everything in sight.  Dawson Garcia struggled with his outside shot but had 18 points inside with no Edina answer.  Prior Lake would open a 15 point 2nd half lead but thanks to Luke Glenna the Hornets would rally with a 13-0 run to make it a game.  Then a quiet night for Anders Nelson ended with him missing an open chance to tie at the buzzer.  He made up for it with a school record 47 tonight in a win over Holy Family.  Glenna with a very nice outing of 22 points.

Friday: #2AAAA Hopkins 89 Wayzata 63
Wayzata would heat up early from 3 with 3 bombs in a 9-2 run to break a 10-10 tie.  Wayzata would end up with 7 3s in the half.  But the triples stopped falling.  That helped spark a 19-2 Hopkins run across halftime that would allow them to take control  The big frontline of Zeke Nnaji, Joe Hedstrom and Dane Zimmer would take over from there.  The Royals run away and hide in the 2nd half after leading by 7 at the break but were down 9 in the 1st half.  Nnaji wth 23, Zimmer with 19, Hedstrom with 9 as Wayzata had no answer.

Saturday: #2AA Minnehaha 79 #4AA Caledonia 75
Jalen Suggs with the best half of basketball I've seen from him all year in the 1st half.  That was answered by a big half from South Dakota State commit Owen King.  Caledonia hustle and working the offensive glass would keep them within shouting distance and a halftime buzzer beater cut the Minnehaha lead to 4 at the break.  Then a 16-1 Minnehaha run in the 2nd half without a Caledonia timeout until they broke the run.  Despite that Mokiller methodology, Caledonia would come all the way back and cut the margin to 2.  Jalen Suggs and JaVonni Bickham foul out late to make it real interesting.  Bickham's 8-8 free throws late were needed.  Noah King misses a late layup that would have cut the lead to 1 with 15 seconds left.  Jalen Suggs quiet in the 2nd half but still finished with 20 points, 6 rebs and 7 assists on my sheet.  Bickham adds 14.  Owen King was somewhat contained in the 2nd half but still finished with 27 points after 18 in the 1st half.

Tuesday: Nova Classical Academy 71 Christian Life 48
The Crown Prince's visit even had me drinking water for the night.  Christian Life could never really get any offense going.  Their matchup defense did cause some hassles but penetration was the answer to that.  Isaiah Boudreaux goes for 27 points, 17 in the 2nd half.  Forward Noah Olson gets a set of layups late to end up with 17.  Soph Jacob Kyllo with 3 triples and all 14 of his points in the 2nd half for Christian Life.  The Hawks only lose 1 member of their top 10.  Nova clinches the regular season TCAC D2 title outright with the win.  Christian Life will finish 2nd even if they lose to 3rd place Learning for Leadership on Thursday.

Eagles out muscle the Aggies for cookies

Prologue
To St. Agnes for my 1st viewing of the season of New Life Academy.  Its the last game before Valentine's Day for New Life.  That means New Life forward Drew Wynia's grandma has valentine's cookies for everybody.  That even includes innocent old me as there's a labeled plate of 3 cookies set aside with my name on them.  How sweet (and smart bribery).  Not good for the waistline with the sugary coating but they were well worth it.  Speaking of Wynia, Augsburg was in the building watching him tonight.

Game Time:
The size advantage for New Life was very evident from the get go.  Drew Wynia 3 interior hoops, a high low feed and New Life with a block that leads to a layup.  New Life jumps out to a 13-3 lead at the 12:30 mark.  The lead extends with Wynia scoring 2 hoops and adding an assist.  An extra pass finds Mark Rygh for 3 and the lead balloons to 28-12 inside the 4 minute mark.  St. Agnes getting some good looks but nothing going in.  Not to mention the difficulty of the small guards finishing against the big Eagles front line of Wynia and Zach Thor.   34-17 New Life at the half.

St. Agnes extends their man defense in the 2nd half.  It speeds New Life up which does cause some problems.  Makes you wonder if they should have gone to it earlier.  Despite that a bucket and offensive rebound for 2 free throws from Wynia keeps the lead at 21 with 8:28 left.  But that press does allow 1 push from the Aggies.  Marcus Johnson 2 buckets and Kentale Morris for 3 off a turnover plus a Tom Gutzmann steal for a layup.  The New Life lead is down to 52-40 inside of 6 minutes left.  But St. Agnes would get no closer.  New Life does a nice job of getting their bigs to the middle to break the pressure.  Soph Jacob Brezny for 3 to keep the lead at 13 with 4:02 left.  But St. Agnes is out of gas.  New Life breaks the pressure for layups and St. Agnes can't hit a shot.  Eagles score 12 of the last 14 points to win 71-48.

Post Game
For St. Agnes, Marcus Johnson with 10 of his 14 in the 2nd half.  Nobody else in double figures.  Soph Jacob Brezny with a pair of 3s and 8 points as the next top scorer.  The offense generated good looks but it was one of those nights.  The small lineup wasn't going to get much in the paint so with shot not falling, that's a long night waiting to happen.  The Aggies fall to 6-15 overall.  They are 0-7 in the Tri-Metro.  They stay non-conference with a section game at St. Paul Academy on Friday.  Then they'll finish up east division play with home games against Concordia and St. Anthony next week.

For New Life, the size played its part.  Drew Wynia with 16 of his 26 in the 1st half.  The other half of the twin towers, Zach Thor, adds 13 of his 17 in the 2nd half.  Their size affected the small St. Agnes guard in the paint all night.  Plenty of high low action that was difficult to deal with in the half court.  Mark Rygh adds 18 points.  The Eagles did get rattled by the St. Agnes scrambling 2nd half pressure.  Expect them to work on that to prepare for section play as they'll definitely have teams try to speed them up come playoff time.  New Life awaits their seed for the MCAA tournament next week.  They are now 14-6 overall and 7-3 in the MCAA.  That's likely good for a 5 way 2nd place tie.  They'll visit Minneapolis Edison on Thursday.

Targeting the big matchup

A busy Saturday in the metro.  Full slate of games at the Target Center with 5 varsity games.  Then one of the most anticipated games of the year with #1AAA De La Salle taking on #1AAAA Cretin-Derham. Let's get to it.

Game 1 (Target Center): Lester Prairie/Holy Trinty 62 PACT 48
T-Shirt guns and intro video included for this one.  Lester Prairie decides to go box and 1 all day on PACT's Cade Johnson.  Tyler Scheevel getting the main task of slowing him down.  Michael Ziermann distributing early then adding a couple hoops late.  Dylan Ruzicka adds a pair of late 3s.  Frosh Jordan Stone with a pair of late 3s to keep the PACT offense moving.  38-30 LP/HT at the half.

PACT finding the skip pass effective vs the box and 1.  Issac Erickson knocks down 3 early 3s, 2 of them via that skip pass.  That pulls PACT within 43-41 with 13 minutes left.  Johnson with a hoop and nice backcut for 2 throws to keep the Panthers within 4 with 9:13 left.  But PACT only scores 1 more field goal the rest of the way as the offense can't find its way.  Ziermann closes it out with 2 hoops and 2 free throws plus a nice assist for another layup.  Ziermann finishes with nice all-around line of 15 points 10 rebounds and 7 assists.  Parker Bayerl 14, Evan Lee with 13.  Cade Johnson with 17 points to lead PACT.  Isaac Erickson with 5 3s for all 15 of his points.

Game 3 (Target Center): Nova Classical Academy 72 ISM/ERA 57
We end the day where it began with the late night TCAC game. ISM coming in last in the top division.  Nova leading the 2nd division.  I pick the game up midway thru the 1st half and see Nova open up a 9 point lead just inside the 5 minute mark.  But Micah Hjelle hits a 3 to end a 10-0 ISM run and give ISM a 26-25 lead.  Nova 31-30 at the break.  Isaiah Bourdreax picks his game up in the 2nd half as Nova starts to pull away.  He scores a pair of hoops in a 14-5 spurt that allows the Knights to push the lead to double digits.  Zach Breen would try to keep ISM close with 10 in the 2nd half but the lead is too much.  Forward Noah Olson too much inside for Nova with 22 points.  Shae Nelson 19, Isaiah Boudreaux 13, Mathieu LaFrombois with 12.  Zach Breen 18 to lead ISM, Micah Hjelle 17.

Game 2: #1AAAA Cretin-Derham Hall 77 #1AAA De La Salle 66
Now to the big show.  A sell out at the large gym backs up the hype around the game.  Gabe Kalscheur does suit up and play coming off an ankle injury.  He has a big 1st half with 4 3s and 19 points.  He hit 2 3s to end the half to keep DLS within 43-31 at the break.  A 17-3 CDH run before that breaks open a 4 point game. Sy Chatman starts that with an offensive rebound for a 3 point play.  Jacob Prince 2 hoops and Chatman finishes the run by dunking off a turnover.

Jamison Battle with 2 early 3s and another Kalscheur bomb pulls DLS within 51-48 with over 13 minutes left.  The rest of the game has some chippy play with it in a bit of a surprise.But the story ultimately is CDH being too big, long and tough inside.  Every CDH bucket in the last 8+ minutes was at the rim.  Daniel Oturu and Sy Chatman dominate the glass and swat a boat load of shots.  Many of those blocks in highlight reel fashion.  Daniel Oturu 25 points, double digit boards and a fist full of blocks.  Sy Chatman with 17 points with his fair share of boards and blocks.  Ryan Larson outplays Tyrell Terry at the point guard spot.  Larson with 14, Terry with 8 before fouling out late.  Gabe Kalscheur with 19 of his 24 points in the 1st half.  Jamison Battle heated up in the 2nd half to finish with 19 points.  CDH played with fire having Chatman guard Kalscheur.  Chatman not used to having to guard a shooter and that movement.  That's what allowed Kalscheur to get loose as Chatman was often a step late.  I was surprised that Jacob Prince didn't see more time with that task.

A Saint, A Spring, A Louis, A Lake and 2 Parks

Its all about the letters SLP the last 2 nights.  1st a NW Suburban crossover game with Spring Lake Park hosting Elk River.  Then the other SLP is St. Louis Park as they host Chaska in a matchup of Metro West leaders.  Both teams coming off upset losses earlier in the week to make the Metro West race a total mess with 4 teams tied at 5-2 coming into Friday night play.  John Cena on the call Friday night to keep order in the big game.

Thursday: Spring Lake Park 53 Elk River 46
Scoring a real struggle in this one.  Elk River playing without forward Jack Burger.  Spring Lake Park playing without Walker Steward.  Spring Lake Park would have straight FGs be 3s to carry their offense.  They score 11 of the last 15 of the half to take a 30-23 halftime lead.  Elk River rallies with a 10-3 run to start the half and tie the game at 33 with 13 minutes left.  But the Elks go the next 4:40 without a FG and give up the next 9 points.  Panthers center Elijah Elkerton sitting part of this stretch with 4 fouls and Elk River would get the lead back down to 3 with just over 5 minutes left.  Elk River with chances down the stretch thanks to 3s from Brock Burdine and Dylan Fruth.  That cuts the lead to 2 with 1:27 left.  But Elk River won't score again.  Brock Burdine the only Elk River player in double figures with 15 points and 3 3s.  Sophomores Blake Remme and Gabe Myren with 14 and 11 points respectively.  But it was the 3 3s (all 1st half) and 11 points from senior Ben Whann that were a difference maker. 

Friday: Chaska 92 St. Louis Park 68
These 2 teams plus Bloomington Jefferson and Robbinsdale Cooper all 5-2 with 5-3 Benilde-St. Margaret's 1 game behind them for the league lead.  The 1st half story was the outside shooting of Chaska.  They knock down 11 3s including 6 from junior Connor Krenos.  Cole Nicholson not only scoring but also being the hub of the offense finding those shooters.  But St. Louis Park had their offense working too.  Joey Whitlock making shots and the jet speed of Cire Mayfield always a factor.  He used that (how fitting) to score his 1000th career point during the 1st half.  2 of those Chaska 3s to end the 1st half and expand the lead to 50-37 at the break.

St. Louis Park clamps down on Krenos in the 2nd half.  But the inside play of Chaska is too much.  Parker Bjorklund 7 early points inside and it also draws Mayfield's 4th foul with 12:20 left and he has to miss a big chunk of time.  That stretches the margin to 23.  A minor St. Louis Park rally with Anthony Odens going inside for a 3 point play and 2 more free throws.  The margin is 16 after a Mayfield triple with 4:19 left.  The game is at 17 when St. Louis Park head coach Dave Breitenbucher gets a pair of technicals and gets tossed with 2:54 left.  Mayfield makes his 2 free throws but Krenos knocks down the 4 technicals.  That starts an 8-0 spurt and the rest is garbage time.  Connor Krenos with the 4 late FTs and a couple late hoops to end up with 31 points.  He had 6 of his 7 3s in the 1st half.  Parker Bjorklund's length a factor scoring 22 inside.  Cole Nicholson with 20 plus he added a bunch of assists (at least 6).  Cire Mayfield with 26 to lead St. Louis Park despite missing a bunch of time in each half with foul trouble.  Aiden Doherty with 15.  Joey Whitlock with 13 but all in the 1st half. 

Living the TCAC Life

Its back to back nights in the TCAC this week.  In the words of Vince Lombardi, What The Hell Is Going On Around Here?!  Thank caucuses and a snowstorm forcing rescheduling for all of this.  Snickers on the menu at Prairie Seeds Academy, definitely satisfying.  Similar small gyms but you can't go wrong with those.

Tuesday: Learning for Leadership at Groves Academy
Who, what, where?  Learning for Leadership is in NE Minneapolis.  Groves Academy is in St. Louis Park right between Benilde-St. Margaret's and St. Louis Park high.  These are mid-level teams in the 2nd division of the TCAC.  But a pair of high scorers in Kafi Abdi and Malik Bodden going at it.  Groves looked to be in control of this one.  They scored the last 6 of the 1st half to take a 7 point play to the break.  But the 2nd half was the Kafi Abdi show for Learning for Leadership.  He scores 29 of his 31 points in the 2nd stanza.  That included 6 3s. But Groves still had an 11 point lead inside 4 minutes to play.  It wouldn't last.  Junior Abdirizak Ahmed brings the Mustangs back in the last 3:30.  He makes a floater, banks in a 3, makes 2 free throws and goes lefty to pull L4L within a point with 25 seconds left.  Groves totally falling apart a turnover, a technical and a bad mis.  Bill Cowher hands out the T after warning the players about complaining.  From that stand point I get it, but in a tight game on a dicey call with minimal words, its hard to swallow.  Groves would have the ball up 1 but miss with 15 seconds left to give Groves 1 last chance.  Its Kafi Abdi down the lane for the game winner with 2.2 left.  Learning for Leadership wins 69-68.  Kafi Abdi 31 points and 14 rebounds.  Abdirizak Ahmed adds 20 for the Mustangs.  Ahmed Nur with 13 before leaving due to injury.  Max Bilcik with 22 points and 13 rebounds to lead Groves.  Malik Bodden with 21, Larry Mohamed with 14 for the Griffins.

Wednesday: Charter Stars at Prairie Seeds Academy
Any trip to Prairie Seeds always begs the obvious questions.  what is a Lycan anyway and is it prone to mange?  Charter Stars win the award for my worst prediction of the year.  I picked them last and here they are tied for 1st and in control of their own destiny in the top TCAC division.  Charter Stars with a ton of 1st half turnovers and Prairie Seeds would open up a 21 point halftime lead.  An 8 point game at the 8 minute mark blown open with 12 points from Peter Anderson.  Charter Stars closes it to 11.  But as we go under 10 minutes left, the Lycans score 6 in a row to kill the momentum.  71-54 Prairie Seeds in control or so I thought with 9:48 left.  I decide enough is enough and its a huge mistake.  Charter Stars center Taye Carter goes absolutely nuts the rest of the way and ends up with 40 points.  He had somewhere between 16 and 22 points when I leave.  Charter Stars come back with a huge rally and win 99-96.  Charter Stars have won 12 of 14 and are tied with Cristo Rey (Pumas have the head to head win) for the conference lead.  Prairie Seeds falls 1 game back and still have to visit the east side of St. Paul.
