Springfield is 23-2 on the season and ranked No. 2 in Class 1A. 

Matthew Hurt

The star player for the No. 1-ranked Hopkins Royals (22-4) is averaging 24.6 points this season. The 6-foot-11 senior is committed to play in college for the Arizona Wildcats. 

Tyrell Terry

The Stanford-bound point guard is a leader for the No. 1-ranked (Class 3A) DeLaSalle Islanders. He's just 6-foot-1, but he can fly, as evidenced in the video below. 

Tyler Wahl

The 6-foot-7 forward will head to Wisconsin after graduating this spring. He's the leading scorer and rebounder for the fourth-ranked Lakeville North Panthers, who could be destined for a showdown with Hurt and John Marshall for a trip to the state tournament later this month.
