2014-15 Section 6AAAA Preview

This is the 23rd preview in my 2014-2015 season preview series.  The final week of previews continues with a look at section 6AAAA.  For a list of all the season previews and how they are generated, click here.

Defending Champion: Hopkins

Predicted Seeding
  1. Hopkins
  2. Minnetonka
  3. Eden Prairie
  4. Robbinsdale Armstrong
  5. Edina
  6. Minneapolis Southwest
  7. Minneapolis South
  8. St. Louis Park
This section is absolutely loaded with 5 teams that could all win 20 games.  Hopkins with their tradition and the top player in the section, Amir Coffey, can't be discounted.  But the Royals aren't the juggernaut of years past.  Lots of youth and inexperience behind Coffey and John Warren.  Minnetonka has a very good backcourt trio coming back.  Eden Prairie will be tough as always.  Armstrong is loaded but even as a division champ, don't be shocked if the Lake voters gang up like in years past and drop them to 4 so they can avoid Hopkins.  Edina has a solid group coming back behind Walt McGrory, Ben Boone and Max Lynch but depth is a concern.  The bottom 3 are a level below.  St. Louis Park with everybody back could jump up over one of the Minneapolis teams.

Sleeper: Edina.   Point guard Walt McGrory is a high level guard.  Ben Boone provides scoring and experience.  Max Lynch can be a defensive factor.

Section Winner: Hopkins.  The Royals are one of my 4 teams that could win it all so I have to take them here.  But this won't be an easy section to get out of.  The opponents are talented and familiar with them.  That 3rd game against an opponent like that is always difficult to win.
