2013 CBN Twin Cities All-Metro Team
The North Dakota signee is averaging 23.0 points per game. He has scored in double figures in all but one game, a 62-point blowout of Coon Rapids. Hooker scored 30 or more points in three games and had 18 contests of 20 or more points. He shined in a 72-70 win over Apple Valley in the Breakdown Tip-Off Classic giving Apple Valley their only loss of the season. Hooker led the Pirates to the top seed in the Class 5AAAA playoffs. They face Coon Rapids for the third time this season Thursday.
The number one point guard in the Class of 2014 helped lead the Eagles to a 25-1 mark and number one ranking in Class AAAA. He averaged 20.7 points per game and had four games of 30 or more points, including a season-best 40 points versus Kennedy. Apple Valley is the big favorite in Class AAAA and has just had six games when they won by less than double figures.
The two-sport standout averaged 27.4 points per game and would have scored even more if his Islanders had not consistently blown out their opponents. He scored 30 or more points in the first five games of the season and reached that level eight times. Travis had a season-best 47 points versus Breck. He had eleven more games of 20 or more points and was held below 20 points just three times. The Islanders won those three games by a combined 132 points. DeLaSalle is the number one ranked team in Class AAA and has yet to lose to a Minnesota opponent, falling only to Blue Valley Northwest (KS) in the Timberwolves Shootout. They are the prohibitive favorites to win their second consecutive state title.
The talented junior is the leading scorer in the Metro area, averaging 28.5 points per game. Vaughn scored in double figures in all 26 games and has helped lead the Hawks to 17 straight win. He has scored 30 or more points in ten games, including a season-high 51 points versus Marantha. He has 13 other games of 20 or more points. Cooper will face fourth seed Maple Grove in the first round of the Section 5 playoffs Thursday. The Hawks lost to the Crimson 68-63 in the regular season.
The Penn State recruit helped lead the Hornets to their first conference title since 1990. Woodward averaged 26.7 points per game as he helped Edina bounce back from a 0-4 start as they won 19 of their final 22 games. He scored 40 or more points twice, including 46 versus St. Louis Park. Woodward had six games of 30 or more points and 14 more contests of 20 or more points.
