Minnetonka at Eden Prairie
7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 6
Slowing a Minnetonka team averaging 85.6 points per game will not be easy for Eden Prairie. The Skippers (15-5) have five players averaging double figures in scoring, and the Eagles may not be able to contain them all. Junior guard Amar Miller leads the way at 21.6 points per game, and he scored 31 against the Eagles in the December matchup.
Junior guards Seth Coatta (17.4 ppg) and Cedric Boone (13.4 ppg), along with senior guard Justin Moes (13.4 ppg) and senior center Evan Altenburg (10.3 ppg), are Minnetonka's other top scorers.
No. 6-4A Eden Prairie (18-2) had several players score more than their season averages in the Eagles' 106-86 victory over the Skippers, an occurrence that might not happen again.
Eden Prairie's leading scorer, senior guard Grantham Gillard (19 ppg), finished with 25 points, while junior guards Nick Geolat (5.8 ppg) and Ryan Jacobus (6.8 ppg) added 14 and 13 points, respectively.
If Hopkins, which sits atop the Lake Conference at 5-0, loses to Edina or Minnetonka, then Eden Prairie would win the conference title if the Eagles win out, including a victory over the Royals in the regular-season finale on Feb. 20.
