Boy's HS tourney

17 posts in this topic

I've watched a LOT of high school basketball, and I think it's safe to say that the '09 version of Hopkins is the BEST team I've ever watched.

WOW

Agreed, but give credit to those Tech kids. They played them pretty tough.

They sure did. A gameplan like that is so difficult to hold for an entire game, and they should be pretty happy about hanging in there that long.

Hopkins is unreal. There were a couple of Mpls North teams in the early 90's along with DeLaSalle that were outstanding, but nothing like these Hopkins kids.

Hopkins is way good. I think they are ranked around 9th in the nation right now. The Minneapolis North Polars of '95-'97 and their 3-peat was really impressive. They even moved up to class AAAA in '97 and were beating schools with double the enrollment. MPLS Henry's 4-peat in class AAA from 2000-03 was also very impressive.

I'll lay 30 points and you guys can have Osseo!

I know that's a lot of points but the Jefferson vs Osseo game was almost un-watchable. Maybe they were just having some bad stretches when I tuned in, but it was pretty bad BB.

Over/under on Dunks for Hopkins is 7 1/2... grin

Being from St. Cloud I was proud that the Tigers were in that game for a while, but to be honest I am suprised they were for that long! Good game plan by the coach but I told my wife before the game I would be suprised if it were close. Thats pretty bad when you are talking about an undefeated team getting its socks handed to em...

Hopkins could probably hang with the Timberwolves for a little while confused

Yes hopkins is unbelievable. I saw them in the first round then watched them against tech. That is what happens when you have the speed and height like they do though for a high school team.

On the other hand I was amazed at Nate Wolters game for tech. I have watched him play during the regular season but normally the rest of the team helps him out. He was single handingly keeping up with hopkins.

Very impressed with Wolters, at 6'4 he's got the size to be a guard at the next level.

Royce White was doing some posterizing! He's going to look good in Maroon and Gold.

StarTrib guy said Tech's Wolters was the best player on the floor in the Hopkins game. He'll play at St. Cloud State or Augustana.

There sure was a lot of clown behavior during the introductions. I'll bet my boat that the MSHSL puts the nuts to that.

And at least two classes should be cut from the tournament.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
