Six teams vying for this week's award
This Week's Candidates
||The Falcons have ripped off three straight upsets to reach the Section 1A title game, knocking off #1 Rushford-Peterson and #3 Kingsland to earn a date with Goodhue. At #5, they might be the lowest seed in MN to reach the section finals.
||The Rebels trailed 48-46 with 10 seconds left and Perham at the line. That turned into a 49-48 win at the buzzer after an old-fashioned 3-point play, which finished with a clutch FT.
||Vishe Rabb scored 31 points to stun top-seeded Mankato Loyola, which had been undefeated against Class A schools.
||The Spuds reversed a 29-point loss to STMA in the regular season to advance to the Section 8AAAA title game against Elk River.
||The Islanders defeated top-seeded Mahtomedi (#2 QRF) at the buzzer and will be the favorite against St. Anthony, who upset Como Park on the other side of the crazy Section 4AAA bracket.
||Rosemount ended Apple Valley's late-season slide in the section semifinals by the score of 61-58. Valley is #4 in QRF, but dropped to #13 in our poll after losing 3 of 4 heading into the postseason.
