It doesn't really Tip Off the season anymore, what with the Pat Patterson and St. Thomas tournaments last weekend. But the Breakdown Tip-Off and now the new Breakdown Girls Invitational certainly give girls basketball fans a big,wide view of what are bound to be some of the best teams of the 2017-2018 season, similarly to what the Breakdown's great preview publication does in print. (Look for it online and at the 2 events.)

Both Grant and Marc and Northstar Girls Hoops will be there on both sidelines of both events (each has games running simultaneously on 2 courts). Our arrangement with the guys at the Breakdown is that we’ll be publishing our game reports on the Breakdown Web site 20-30 minutes after each game. Expanded coverage and commentary will follow on Northstar Girls Hoops.

Feature games include #3AAAA Lakeville North vs. #4AAAA Wayzata this Saturday, and #1AAA DeLaSalle vs. #2AAA Cooper next week, and more.
