5. Totino-Grace star hits 12 straight threes
You've got to be kidding me! Nobody hits 12 straight threes unless they play in the NBA and they're warming up. But Sam Meyer hit 12 straight en route to 47 points in a win over St. Francis.

4. Ms. Hockey finalists announced
Girls hockey playoffs begin this week, and that means the ten finalists for Ms. Hockey were announced. All ten have committed to Division I schools.

3. Michael Zajac picks Princeton University

Eagan hockey star Michael Zajac is only the third leading scorer for the No. 4 Wildcats, but that doesn't mean he's not one of the state's best players. The winger has decided to attend Princeton University next fall.

2. Hopkins ends Wayzata's undefeated dream
Maybe "dream" isn't the best word to describe the Trojans' feelings, but they were undefeated before falling at the hands of the three time defending Class 4A state champs. Zach Stahl led Hopkins in this key Lake Conference match-up.

1. March Madness in high school hoops
We've posted some pieces about the idea to create a 64 team, March Madness style bracket in Class 4A girls basketball, but now the conversation includes boys basketball. "It's a real possibility" says Tom Critchley, executive director of the Minnesota Basketball Coaches Association.
