Defending Champion: Eden Prairie

Predicted Seeding
  1. Eden Prairie
  2. Chanhassen
  3. Bloomington Kennedy
  4. Lakeville South
  5. Shakopee
  6. Prior Lake
  7. Bloomington Jefferson
  8. Burnsville
After losing in the section championship, Chaska is off to section 6AAA.  Edina moves to section 6.  They are replaced by Burnsville and Lakeville South who join from section 3.  Don't get me started on why Lakeville South and Lakeville North (happiest team in the state with their new and illogical placement) were placed in sections 2 and 1 respectively.  Eden Prairie is young but more talented top to bottom than anybody else in the section.  Chanhassen as a conference champ can't fall below 2 but its a down year in the Missota so I can't put them first.   Toughest call here was where to put Shakopee.  They lose basically everything but they'll have size and Bruce Kugath does a great job year in and year out.

Sleeper: Prior Lake.  They have a quality point guard in Jon Sobaski and a pair of twin towers in Carson Shanks and Jeff Probert to throw at you.  Add in experience with Jack Harrison and an entire season of playing together and come tourney time I think they have a chance against anybody in the section.

Section Winner: Eden Prairie.  The tradition rolls on and they're the most complete team.  They defend, have quality guard play with Grant Schaeffer and Sander Mohn, and enough size and athletes to go with that to put together another state run.
