It's tournament time, what more do I need to say to get high school sports fans excited? Let's get started with this week's "Fab Five."

5. Broman scores 71 points

Lakeview Christian lost the game, but sophomore scoring stud Anders Broman poured in a career-high 71 points against Melrose. It's the second-highest single game total in state history.

4. Roseau-Warroad rivalry gets national attention
Hockey fans in Minnesota know all about the rivalry between hockey powers Roseau and Warroad. Now, however, the rivals are getting national attention. NBC Sports put cameras behind the scenes for a look at the Rams and Warriors.

3. Armstrong upsets defending champs
There will be a new champion in class 2A this year, and it's all thanks to Robbinsdale Armstrong. The Falcons upset Eden Prairie in the first round of the section six playoffs. Armstrong goalie Michael Greenberg stopped 49-of-50 shots.

2. Breck crowned with double-overtime win
South St. Paul battled to the very end, but it wasn't enough as Breck claimed its first girls state hockey title with a 3-2 win in double-overtime. Leah Schwartzman scored the game-winning goal.

1. Minnetonka girls wins second straight title

Give the Skippers a ton of credit. They trailed Lakeville North 1-0 with less than a minute to play before putting together a shocking comeback. That was the state semifinal round. Their championship victory over Roseville was even more impressive.
