Defending Champion: Duluth East
- Duluth East
- Forest Lake
- St. Francis
Sleeper: Anoka. The Tornadoes as my 2 seed normally wouldn't qualify here but since Duluth East gets knocked down I'll make an exception. Quality guard play is never a bad thing come playoff time and Anoka has that. Malcolm Seals should have a breakout year and be able to run the offense. Marcus Tyus is talented enough to carry an offense so if he gets it going he could lead them through the section.
Section Winner: Duluth East. Assuming Johnny Woodard is healthy for the tournament, him and Taylor Stafford are the best duo in the section. Just too much for the rest of the section to handle. Add in 2 straight years in the section final and last year's win and I won't pick against the champs.
