I have watched almost every team play in some capacity this season.
Red River has, far and away, the most talent of any team I've seen in North Dakota this year. I think Kroeplin is an absolute stud, and Arvidson is a great athlete that hits tough shots. Farroh is probably an all conference player, and with their other two starters being 6'2" and 6'6", they are going to be tough to beat. I would not be shocked to see them enter the EDC tournament undefeated, or with only one or two losses.
The EDC as a whole is pretty unique. I have to think Shanley makes state, as AJ has been incredibly impressive in every outing this season. Having Strom's 20 or so points a night will definitely help as well.
I think the last two spots will come down to Fargo Davies, Wahpeton, and West Fargo, but would not be shocked to see Fargo North sneak in, if they can close out close games. Davies has a pretty dynamic duo with Kozlowski and Jordahl, and I think that post presence will be a big factor in the EDC tournament, where Wahpeton relies on the three balls, and West Fargo truly epitomizes team offense and defense.
