Northwest Suburban Conference Preview


Look for another down year in the Northwest Suburban. Osseo should sleepwalk to the conference title. Everything else after that is up for grabs

Team Previews:

Osseo returns size and experience. Zach Peterson and Sam Dower will man the inside with talented Carrington Tankson and sniper Dan Brown returning on the perimeter. Look for them to make a run at a state tournament berth.

Elk River returns 3 starters from a year ago. Junior Jack Gavin returns as their leading scorer. If they get post play, this could be a dangerous team.

Andover loses their top 3 players including center Jimmie Johnson.

Park Center showed significant improvement last year. Can they continue it this year?

Blaine returns Kyle Kreklow who could make a run at leading the conference in scoring. Will they return to the top half of the conference after 2 down seasons?
