This is the 21st preview in my 2013-2014 season preview series.  The previews of class AAAA continue with a look at Section 4.  For a list of all the season previews and how they are generated, click here.

Defending Champion: Woodbury

Predicted Seeding
  1. Tartan
  2. Roseville
  3. Woodbury
  4. Stillwater
  5. Mahtomedi
  6. Mounds View
  7. White Bear Lake
  8. North
A very balanced section.  Tartan and Roseville should battle it out all year for the top seed.  3-6 could go in any direction and will make for very good 4 vs 5 and 3 vs 6 1st round games.   Stillwater and Mahtomedi are definitely better than 4 and 5 seeds.  Stillwater will have the size and Mahtomedi will have the guard play.  Woodbury has the tradition.  Mounds View can jump in that discussion with their experience.  White Bear Lake has too much to replace to be any higher.  North continues to rebuild.

Sleeper: Mounds View.   They'll fly under the radar with no stand out player but they're experienced and sound.  They will be a difficult out in March.

Section Winner: Roseville.  I can't pick every #1 seed and Roseville is experienced and deep.  I think they win out over Tartan's youth.

  1. You have yet to mention Keenan bellaphant a 1100 yard rusher in football and will probley be the best guard on the floor most nights this season didn't play aau this summer to concentrate on fundamentals at tartan and also marlon McCoy one of top 5 on ball defenders in state for tartan.bellaphant will remind you of Jeff jones jr.
