Braham Minnesota is a little town of 1300, fifty miles north of the Twin Cities. They call themselves the Homemade Pie Capitol of Minnesota. Their high school basketball team has won forty some games in a row and are the reigning class 2A champs. They’ve come down and whipped the big urban schools and played a team from Compton California and beaten them too. They have three players who will play D1 basketball and three more who will play college ball at some level. Sounds like Hoosiers, only I don’t think these guys are ever going to be underdogs.
Meanwhile, it’s reported that Minnesota Girl’s high school hockey is far and away the best in the nation and that this years senior class is the best ever. South St. Paul has the metro player of the year and her linemates are all on the All Metro first team. One of them will break the all time scoring record for the state, they don’t know which one yet. They’ve played varsity together since eigth grade. They’re all seniors and they’re going to Minnesota State Mankato. Look for the Mustangs to challenge the Gophers for dominance of women’s hockey.
