League Preview

It wasn’t my intent to write two lengthy stories about games in the tournament’s top division. After starting with the Stars Hersch/High Impact Caddy encounter, the plan was to spread it around and offer up a little of this and a little of that from grades 8 through 11. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans. The 8th-grade battles never really materialized when I was around. Ditto for 9th grade, the best games of which were over at Bloomington Jefferson. By the time I found parking somewhere out by Waconia, Paige Bueckers had already left the building and Fury 2020 Blue was making things look easy. There were better games back at Kennedy including what turned out to be the game of the day. The Saturday matchup between Ellen Weise’s talented Metro Stars squad and the equally gifted 2018 team from Tayler Hill Elite was remarkable, not for the end result (a 47-43 win for the Metro Stars), nor for the numbers on the stats sheet (Morgan Hill was featured prominently as usual). What was remarkable was that the players could walk off the court at the end without the aid of an EMT. This was war.
