UPDATE! Seeds and Pairings

Class AAAA

Tuesday March 14 Target Center

10 a.m.--#1 Hopkins vs. Minnetonka--we got our wish for a rematch of last year's final

12 Noon--#4 Eastview vs. #5 Park Center--we anticipated this one

2 p.m.--#2 Elk River vs. White Bear Lake--as anticipated, Elk gets the #2 seed

4 p.m.--#3 Lakeville North vs. Andover--also as predicted, North at #3

Class AAA

Tuesday March 14 Target Center

6 p.m.--#1 Orono vs. Willmar--had not anticipated Orono at #1 but can't complain

8 p.m.--#4 Grand Rapids vs. #5 Alexandria--we had them reversed but same matchup

Wednesday March 15 Mariucci Arena

10 a.m.--#2 Holy Angels vs. Waseca--I thought the defending champs would be #1 but this in no way will affect the outcome

12 Noon--#3 Winona vs. DeLaSalle--setting up a rematch of last year's final in the semis. I wonder if Orono went #1 and Holy Angels #2 in order to discourage a finals rematch? But of course Winona draw the hottest team in AAA. De beat Holy Angels last month, so...  CORRECTION: Holy Angels edged DeLaSalle 64-63 last month....
