Nanne was talking on KFAN yesterday that there is a lot of talk about getting rid of the two tier system and going with an NCAA style top 24 teams getting in, regardless of region. Apparently there has been a lot of heartburn and embarrassment for the organizers when sub-.500 teams are continually getting into the tournament because they play in a weak region...

Come on Hill!

 

Congratulations to St. Thomas on winning the 3rd consecutive state title in another great game between them and Hermantown, what a finish!

"I don't think we accomplished much," Pavano said of the 2010 season. "We won the division, but two years in a row we got swept in three games. We didn't accomplish anything, as far as playoffs, as far as I'm concerned.

As is my custom (can't even remember how many years now) I attended the Section 2 and 6 finals at the Mooch last Wednesday night. 
 
Again, I contend it is EVERY bit as good as the actual school-boy tourney as (usually) all four teams involved are tourney-worthy.
 
That said, I am gonna say the Cakes are gonna take the big school event (But then I always pick the Cakes) :)
