As for the WDA

Minot- I know they lost three starters, but they still retain key contributors from this years team.

Century- Refer to above.

Legacy- This is a wild card team. They have the same kind of mystery that Davies had. Now look at them.

Bismarck- the loss of Steve Miller will hurt, but I think they can make it back to state.

Dickinson

Jamestown

Mandan

Williston

TM- They had 8 seniors this year (I think) and don't have anything in the lower ranks. If they don't make a magical run like this year, it could be a long season for the braves.

TIER ONE
1-2 Minot - A starting lineup coming back that will have Lund, Bolinske, Engg and KyJuan Johnson. Tough to beat.
1-2 Century - Feeney, Geiger, Leingang, among others in a large junior class. If I had to predict, I'd say it's another Minot-Century state championship game next season.

TIER TWO
3-6
Bismarck - Interesting to see adjustment to new coach. Returns a few nice pieces.
Jamestown - Returns Wanzek, Anderson, Lunzman (sixth man) and a couple of more guards they used off the bench at state. Also had a JV team that finished fourth in the WDA.
Legacy - I'm not sure what they have, but Horner is a great coach. They'll hit the ground running. No doubt about it.
Dickinson - They'll have Moody and Meidinger, which is a good start. But they lost a lot of kids, and the JV team didn't have a great season. This could hinge on how Meidinger improves in the offseason.

TIER THREE
7-10
St. Mary's - They return a lot, and Uhler is a good player. I think they're here right now, but they could be a part of the second tier.
Mandan - A few nice players, but they lose some decent kids to graduation. Interesting to see what the younger group does for Mandan. I think they could surprise.
Williston - Has to get better, but there isn't a lot around Eikens and there doesn't appear to be much help coming.
Turtle Mt. - This will be the Landyn Keplin show. Likely too inexperienced to duplicate the kind of season they had this year.


I think GFRR and Sheyenne could be the teams to beat in the East Region to start. They return the most from what I've seen. I don't know if the East will have a team on Minot or Century's level.

Wahpeton loses many key players.
Devils Lake returns all their key players...

EDC will be down next year but DL should be near the top-third

Picking up on what Run said, above, Wahpeton loses four starters, including their top two scorers, and Devils Lake returns four starters, including two sophomore all-EDC players (they started three sophs this season).

1. Red River- Almost the entire team back after a 3rd place finish at state. I think Hanson is the best returning player in the EDC.
2. Davies- Returning a strong Jr. class. I really don’t see them finishing lower than 2nd.
3. Sheyenne- Pretty good size, athleticism, and experience. Their overall team size gives them my nod over the Packers.
4. West Fargo- Good shooters and I like Pfau’s ability to take control by getting good shots for himself and his teammates.
5. Shanley- Will be led by a couple of sophomores this season, which should be a good thing. They graduated a senior class that struggled to play as a team. They have an outside chance to make it to state.
6. Devils Lake- Not as high on them as most. I just think the drop off between the top two and the next three is to big for them to finish in the top 4.
I see a pretty clear break between my top 6 and the remaining 5.
*********************************************************************************************************************************
7. South- Pretty good shooter in Hovden and athleticism with a number of boys.
8. North- Hoeg is a nice player, but I don’t see him as a game changer. Sem is a bit of a wild card. His athleticism is unquestioned but I have felt his skill level has been an issure. His injury this summer has really limited his time to work on skills.
9. Wahpeton- Lost a lot, but returning players had a chance to be part of a good team and that will do nothing but help them out.
10. Valley City- I know next to nothing in about Valley City.
11. Central- I do know enough about Central to believe that Valley City should beat them.

1. Red River - They should be the favorite, but Coach Gregory is taking a leave of absence so we'll see how the team reacts.
2. WF Packers - very athletic and a defensive minded team. They will make teams turn the ball over.
Pfau is a true leader. They might be lead in scoring this year by a sophomore guard named Pistorius.
3. WF Sheyenne - it will take this team a long time to gel, but by tournament time they'll be up there. Ringdahl is a great player and he has height around him, but they need to find the right mix.
4. Davies - returns a lot
5. Devils Lake - returns some very good pieces
6. Shanley - very young but improved
7.Valley City - should be good enough to compete with the best teams this year
8. Wahpeton - still has some good talent
9. South - down year
10. North - down year
11. Central - struggling program

Overestimated Red River and Sheyenne, but 4 of my top 5 made the State Tournament :) .
