Boys Section 1A and 1AA Playoff Brackets Released
The Boys Section 1A and 1AA Playoff Brackets were released Saturday and Sunday morning and it looks like there will a more than enough great basketball games played across southeast Minnesota in the coming weeks.
We already have seen the start of the Girls Section Tournament, and now we will see two of the most competitive sections seeded for what should be a very interesting and entertaining few weeks of basketball.
Here are the seeds for Section 1AA
2. Lake City
5. St. Charles
8. Rochester Lourdes
10. Pine Island
11. Cannon Falls
There are a couple of great matchups right out of the gate including Rochester Lourdes hosting Goodhue, along with PEM taking on Cannon Falls, which you will be able to hear on FUN 104.3 Thursday night in the 6 vs 11 matchup. A couple of state tournament title contenders are in this section, too, including Caledonia, Lake City and Stewartville. Caledonia and Lake City are ranked no. 1 and 2 in the state, while Stewartville just beat Lake City this past Saturday evening for the HVL Championship. There is a lot of talented players in the section and should make for a very entertaining tournament.
Here are the Section 1A seeds:
1. Blooming Prarie
4. Schaefer Academy
5. Grand Meadow
9. Spring Grove
15. Fillmore Central
16. United Christan Academy
19. Bethlem Academy
This section might not be as top-heavy as Section 1AA, but there are a lot of really solid basketball teams that will look to eye a trip to the state tournament and make some noise. It will be the first time this season that Southland and Spring Grove meet up, and you will be able to hear the action on 103.1 KFIL.
It looks like another great tournament season is upon on, and lets get the basketball going!
