AAA and AAAA section semifinal scoreboard watching

From Friday's games, let's look at the results and see how the Czar did on his original predictions.

Section 2AAAA:
Kennedy pulls the major upset on Eden Prairie. EP blew them out twice in the regular season including a game I saw. Alfred Jaryan again has a big night against EP with 30 pts. Ethan Wragge with 27 and a shot to win it in the last 10 seconds that missed.

As predicted Edina did scare Shakopee again as the Sabers had a 1 pt lead with 11 seconds left before making FTs and avoiding an Edina chance to tie. The Czar goes 1-1 thanks to Kennedy

Section 3AAAA:
I get both games in 3AAAA correct as Burnsville and Eastview both win. Apple Valley holds Tarell Clark to 11 but soph Devon Knopke goes 20+ again in the tourney as he had 23. Johnie Sanders with 22 for Eastview in their win over Rosemount.

Section 4AAAA:
The Czar goes 2-0 here as well. But these certainly weren't the nailbiters that I expected.

Section 5AAAA:
Osseo rolls over Champlin Park 73-55. Carrington Tankson returned with 9 pts for the Orioles. Zach Peterson with 12 as he continues to play well. Ditto for Ryan Spading as he leads them with 14 and has been in double figures 6 of the last 7 games. Mounds View holds Rodney Williams to 15 in the other semi but Quincey Bethea goes off for 24 to lead Cooper to 73-62 win. Mounds View gets 20+ from 3 players but no more than 3 from anyone else. The Czar goes 1-1 as I get Osseo but miss Cooper.

Section 6AAAA
No surprises here as Hopkins and Minnetonka both roll. Damarius Cruz with 24 for Armstrong in the loss to Hopkins. Minnetonka uses a big 2nd half to beat Wayzata. Andy Burns with 24, Anthony Tucker 22 for Minnetonka. This sets up the big showdown Tuesday in Osseo. The Czar goes 2-0 here.

Section 7AAAA
Cambridge-Isanti beats Blaine 72-60 despite big nights from Billy Giddings (19) and Dylan Rodriguez (23). Forest Lake beats Coon Rapids 69-57. Brad Kopp with 19 for the Rangers. The Czar goes 1-1 here.

AAAA total: 9-3

Section 3AAA
I was already doomed in 1 half as I had Columbia Heights here, but Spring Lake Park handles St. Anthony 65-50. Henry handles Fridley 75-60 in the other semi setting up the 1 vs 2 matchup. The Czar goes 1-1 as I had Henry.

Section 4AAA
Johnson survives Hill-Murray 77-72 and Como Park beats Highland Park 71-62. This sets up the 1 vs 2 matchup here and a 3rd meeting between these teams. I already had Mahtomedi wrong, but I did get Johnson for a 1-1 mark.

AAA total 2-2 (3-3 if you include 6AAA from the previous night)

AAAA: 19-5 in Quarters, 9-3 in the semis ==> 28-8
AAA: 9-3 Quarters, 3-3 in the semis ==> 12-6
AA: 7-1 Round of 16, 3-1 Quarters, 1-1 Semis ==> 11-3
A: 8-1 Round of 16+, 3-1 Quarters, 1-1 Semis ==> 12-3
TOTAL: 63-20 thru all of the semifinals

Previews for the 11 metro section finals coming up tomorrow.
