2016-17 Section 5AAAA Preview

This is the 23rd preview in my 2016-2017 season preview series.  The final week of this 6 week series move along with a look at section 5AAAA.  For a list of all the season previews and how they are generated, click here.

Section 5AAAA (8 teams)
Defending Champion: Osseo

Predicted Seeding
  1. Champlin Park
  2. Osseo
  3. Park Center
  4. Centennial
  5. Mounds View
  6. Roseville 
  7. Irondale
  8. Spring Lake Park
Champlin Park is the clear favorite with most of their lineup coming back.  District rivals Osseo and Park Center will battle for the 2nd spot.  Neither is big, but they have plenty of quality perimeter play.  Centennial and Mounds View battle for the final home game.  Then its a down a notch to the bottom 3 who are all projected to struggle.

Sleeper: Mounds View.  They lose a ton but they proved last year that they'll play hard and work thru their main scoring option.  Don't underestimate their ability to pull an upset.

Section Winner: Champlin Park.  Too much talent there.  Osseo and Park Center can hang around though.  If Theo John stays out of foul trouble, he's too big of a difference maker here.
