After games ending Sunday, March 18
At this time next week, we'll know who the Minnesota state hoops champs are, and we'll know who stands alone atop the POWERADE Minnesota Weekly Rankings. All of the teams below have qualified for the state tournaments in their respective classifications, leaving out previous standout teams such as Benilde-St. Margaret's, whose late loss in the sectional tourney left them on the outside looking in. Still, Hopkins, Lakeville North and Eastview will do battle to determine the class of Class AAAA, and there are plenty of other teams in our rankings who have state title aspirations.
1. Hopkins (28-1) Last week: No. 4
2. Lakeville North (28-1) Last week: No. 1
3. Eastview (28-1) Last week: No. 2
