10-11 Section 6AAAA Preview

This is the 22nd preview in my 2010-2011 season preview series.  In this preview, a look at Section 6AAAA.  For a list of all the season previews, click here.

Defending Champion: Hopkins

Predicted Seeding
  1. Hopkins
  2. Robbinsdale Armstrong
  3. St. Louis Park
  4. Minnetonka
  5. Wayzata
  6. Minneapolis North
  7. South
  8. Southwest
Minneapolis Southwest is improved and I think they shock the world by running through the section and making state.  Enough nonsense, the top team in 4A resides here and that's Hopkins.  After that, Armstrong's guard play and finish in the NW Suburban puts them second.  St. Louis Park with everyone back will have a nice year and take 3.  Minnetonka will be much improved by the end of the year but learning a new system for coach Dasovich and the always difficult schedule, especially in December while learning that system, will knock down their seed.  Wayzata's front line of Eric Robertson and Chris Burt puts them at #5.  The Minneapolis City standings determine the rest.  Expect a big fight for the 3 seed because the 4/5 winner would play Hopkins in round 2.  South's guard play led by Carnell Sheppard and lack of Armstrong bigs could make for an interesting 2 vs 7 game.

Section Winner: Hopkins.  While the Royals aren't the perfect team, they still have an elite point in Siyani Chambers, the top prospect in the state Joe Coleman and a beast up front in Marvin Singleton.  They're still one of the top 2 teams in the state at worst and the other team is in 3A (Johnson).
