10-11 Section 3AAAA Preview

This is the 19th preview in my 2010-2011 season preview series.  In this preview, I stay in the south metro for a look at Section 3AAAA.  For a list of all the season previews, click here.

Defending Champion: Eastview

Predicted Seeding

  1. Eastview
  2. Apple Valley
  3. Lakeville South
  4. Eagan
  5. Lakeville North
  6. Rosemount
  7. Burnsville
  8. Park
This is the easiest section to seed but only because Park puts themselves at the bottom.  The South Suburban standings determine the rest.  Top to bottom you won't find a tougher bracket, especially in the top 6.  Rosemount and Matt Nelson is not a 6 seed I would want to draw if I'm a 3 seed.  The top 3 are absolutely stacked and Eagan is as good a 4 seed as you'll find.  Lakeville South can have a big say with their front line of Alex Richter, Spencer Pankonin and Jon Christensen.  Eagan has plenty of firepower to scare and if Jameson Parsons gets hot, they can definitely pull an upset.

Section Winner: Eastview.  The Lightning are stacked with perimeter and inside players.  If they get quality point guard play, watch out.  Their 2 regular season games last year with Apple Valley were decided by a combined 7 points before Eastview won the section title by 12.  Expect another classic in a section final rematch.  Don't be shocked if it turns out to be the best section final in AAAA.
