POWERADE Minnesota Hoops Rankings: Final

By Christopher Parish

After games ending Sunday, March 25

All season long, we touted the strength of the big four - Lakeville North, Hopkins, Eastview and Benilde-St. Margaret's. And yet, at the end of the season, the leader of the POWERADE Minnesota Weekly Rankings is Osseo, who sat quietly below all of the leaders until it was time to shine in the postseason. With a narrow win over Lakeville North in the title game, the Orioles are Class AAAA state champs and cap the year as our top team in the state. Other state champions included DeLaSalle, Plainview-Elgin-Millville and Belgrade-Brooten-Elrose. Congratulations to all the state champs.

1. Osseo (30-2) Last week: No. 4

2. Lakeville North (30-2) Last week: No. 2

3. Hopkins (28-2) Last week: No. 1
