Weekly 360 Windmill - Dec 7 2015

By TC Hoops Czar

Its the Weekly 360 Windmill.  Time to look back on the week that was and look ahead to the 2nd complete week of games in the 2015-16 season. Week 3 Review

  • St. Paul Central with a couple of very nice wins over #7AA SPA and #9AAA Orono.  They did that without their 2nd best guy Jack Beckman.  Did not see that coming after I saw Delano beat them soundly before Thanksgiving.  
  • Condolences to Johnson coach Vern Simmons on the loss of his wife due to cancer.  Johnson lost to Woodbury and Milwaukee Washington and had their non-conference game vs CDH postponed last week.
  • Chaska with a major statement going into Lakeville North and knocking off the Panthers 71-68 on Thursday.
  • What is going on with Eden Prairie?  Buzzer beater loss to Burnsville a week ago and then a late loss to Eastview, both of those at home.  Very surprising for a team that many thought was top 5 caliber.  Normally youd say get EP early because of football, but remember this was the 1st time in forever that they didnt have a football game in November.  
  • Tartan with a shocking 70-68 loss to Richfield last Friday.  I would not want to be South St. Paul on Tuesday.  
  • Mounds View 4-0 against a soft schedule.  They started league play with a win on Friday.
  • Forest Lake with a win vs Stillwater on Friday that surprised me.   
  • Heritages 70-54 home win over Maranatha broke a 49 game regular season MCAA game winning for the Mustangs.  Last Maranatha regular season league loss was 68-67 to West Lutheran on Jan 10, 2012.  The last time that they had lost a true road game in any MCAA play?  December 19, 2008 at Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity.

Week 4 Look Ahead

  • Speaking of Forest Lake and Mounds View, theyll meet at Forest Lake on Friday.  Teams fighting to figure out who belongs where in the Suburban East standings.
  • St. Croix Lutheran continues their insane stretch of games with a trip to #1A North on Tuesday, at #7AA St. Paul Academy on Thursday and vs #3AA Braham in the 2nd game in the main gym at the Breakdown Tip-Off Classic.
  • #2A Central Minnesota Christian is in town for the weekend.  Theyll take on 2 of the best in the MCAA.  Friday night they are at SW Christian and Saturday afternoon at previously ranked Heritage.
  • Tuesday conference games that catch my eye
    • SW Christian at Trinity for an early advantage in the MCAA South
    • Blaine at Osseo in a NW Suburban cross-division matchup
    • Woodbury at Cretin-Derham Hall.  Woodbury has won 4 in row including their last 2 over section opponents that I picked them to finish behind.  Sleeper gamer here as Woodbury has a lot coming back from last year.
  • Thursday has a big 6AAA showdown with Benilde-St. Margarets visiting #9AAA Orono.  BSM picked up an important section win over Waconia on Saturday.  Another win over a top level section opponent would be huge.
  • Thursday conference games that catch my eye
    • #3AAA Henry is at Washburn with both teams at 2-0 in league play.  They are trying to keep pace with North in the Minneapolis City.
    • Osseo at Park Center.  This rivalry game is a different kind of test for this Osseo team looking to jump back to their elite ways.
  • Fridays very early opening night in the Lake Conference kicks off with a bang as #2AAAA Hopkins visits #8AAAA Wayzata.  Vinnie Shahid guarding Johnny Beeninga and how does Wayzata guard Amir Coffey are 2 things to look for.
  • Ill be at Johnson for their 1st showcase of the month.  In the early game at 6:45 PM, Atascoctia (TX) and Purdue commit Carsen Edwards (#134 nationally per Rivals.com) take on #1AAA De La Salle.  That is followed by Milwaukee King and Michigan commit Jordan Poole vs #10 AAA Johnson in the late game. King is ranked #3 preseason in Wisconsins largest class and they are off to a 3-0 start with Poole putting up over 23 a night.  Poole is the 2nd ranked junior in Wisconsin and #104 nationally per Rivals.com.
  • Saturday is the Breakdown Tip-Off Classic.  Loaded as always.  Ill post my preview Wednesday night.
