2013-14 Section 6AAA Preview

This is the 17th preview in my 2013-2014 season preview series.  In this preview, from the east side to the west side for a look at section 6AAA.  For a list of all the season previews and how they are generated, click here.

Defending Champion: Blake

Predicted Seeding
  1. Holy Family
  2. Washburn 
  3. Blake 
  4. Waconia  
  5. Richfield
  6. Holy Angels  
  7. Benilde-St. Margaret's
  8. Mound-Westonka
Waconia is back in the section after losing in the 2AAA title game last season.  This section is a major toss up.  Holy Family's huge front line of Justin Dahl, Joe Hanel and Joe Conroy returns.  That includes Brent Hentges as a double figure as a scorer too.  Washburn loses Nick Anderson but has plenty of talent returning as my pick to win the Minneapolis City.  Blake and Waconia have above .500 teams coming back and can play with most in AAA.  The other Nicollet Ave corridor teams have major rework to do.  Benilde St. Margaret's has a lot back after major struggles last year.  Tyler Biwan starts a rebuilding effort at Mound-Westonka

Sleeper: Waconia.  They lost a ton but forward Ryan Boll is vastly underrated as a jack of all trades.  Avery Talton gives them an athlete and Tommy Gove is experienced in the back court.  Pat Hayes is as good as any in the section on the bench.

Section Winner: Holy Family.  Too big and talented.  Matt Thuli returns to the bench as the coach who led them to their 1st state appearance.

  1. Waconia also has much improved 2015 6'8 transfer Oliver Smith (previously at Chanhassen) to give them some more size inside. Very interesting section!
