Star of the North Results

Here are results from this weekend's Star of the North event in St. Paul.

In Pool A, Tartan and Plainview-Elgin-Millville went 2-0. A 43 Hoops squad and Spring Lake Park went 0-2. In Pool B, MN Xplosion went 2-0, Farmington was 1-1. In Pool C, Centennial was 2-0. In Pool D, the MN Mustangs were 1-1.

The MN Mustangs knocked out Tartan 63-61 before losing to the Xplosion 75-70 in the 1st semifinal. Centennial defeated Farmington 69-60 in the quarters and Plainview-Elgin-Millville 67-65 in the other semifinal. MN Mustangs won 3rd place 68-64 over PEM. In the championship game, Centennial won a close one over the Xplosion 83-78. Jordan Reibling with a big tourney for the Xplosion as he had 93 pts in 5 games. Jack Ghizoni also with a productive tournament for the Xplosion. Nice tourney win for Centennial as this was their full varsity squad. That program has struggled recently and the NW Suburban has been down. Does this mean an uptick for them. Only time will tell. Certainly Jr guard Tony Gerding is a player to build around and they do return most of last year's roster.

The Xplosion and Mustangs will both be in the Twin Cities Summer Classic in 2 weeks. It'll be interesting to see how both teams do with the tough competition that will be there.
