End of June events

Lots going on as we end June and start another college recruiting cycle. Lots of local teams at the Dakota Showcase Thursday-Saturday.

In Pool A, there's Magic-Robertson and MN Fury along with the Iowa Barnstormers and Iowa recruit Brennan Cougill. In Pool B, 94 Ft of Game along with ECI West Black with one of the top players in North Dakota, Cameron Malzer. He was a star for the ECI team that played in the Sabes Invite in May. In Pool C, MN Magic Elite look like they have a less difficult pool. SD Heat and SW MN Stars also in that pool. In Pool D, MN Comets in another less difficult pool. Look for Nate Wolters to have a big weekend there. Also worth watching is Jarrell Crayton (Bellevue E, NE) of the Alegent Crusaders.

In Pool E, we've got MSB and ECI MN. Fun matchup of bigs there with David Berthene and Mike Muscala of MSB vs Jordan Aaberg (NDSU signee) and Kurt Mickelson. In Pool F, Cody Larson leads the Dakota Schoolers up against a couple of MN teams. The MN Heat Elite and MN Select-Kruger squads are in this pool. Look for Maurice Hernandez to have another big weekend for the Select. In Pool G, the MN Magic Elite Stars are there vs the Wisconsin Blizzard. Tyler Brown (teammate of top 10 national soph Evan Anderson at Eau Claire North and one of the top Seniors to be in Wisconsin) leads the Blizzard. I believe they won the WI AAU tournament earlier this spring (preview here). I think the MN Glory 16s are in this pool as well. Finally in Pool H we have the MN Glory and MN Select DeKok teams.

The Czar's complete unqualified pool winner predictions: Magic-Robertson, 94 Ft of Game, MN Magic Elite, MN Comets, MSB, MN Select-Kruger, WI Blizzard and MN Glory.

Star of the North games are going on in St. Paul with the MN Xplosion, 43 Hoops, Tartan and Spring Lake Park in that event. Friday games are at the MLK Rec Center in St. Paul. Saturday games (pool and quarterfinals) are at Arlington and Sunday semis and finals are at Humboldt.

MN Fury 15s and 16s and Grassroots are in the State Farm Summer Hoops Classic tournament at N St. Paul this weekend.
