Boys Basketball Preview

When we last left off the Fillmore County boys basketball scene, a champion was in our midst. Rushford-Peterson won everything last year, the Three Rivers Conference (17-0), 1A East, Section 1A, and the school’s third Class A state title. The Trojans (32-1) posted a school record win total. With great teams come great losses; a trio of three-year starting guards (Cole Kingsley, Alex Vix, Charlie Krambeer) who combined for seven All-TRC selections. Also gone are Kyler Paulson and Jacob Merchlewitz. And yet, other area coaches are probably envious of Tom Vix. They wish they had returnees Noah Carlson (6’2” junior G/F) and Matt Culhane (6’8” senior C). Carlson (5.4 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 2.5 SPG, 2.0 APG) enters his third-year of varsity action. What he could do on a nightly basis was highlighted in a state semifinal game (16 pts, 7 stls, 5 assists, 4 rebs). Or look at his sophomore to junior football evolution. Culhane (5.9 PPG, 3.6 RPG) should also see his role grow, as mammoth skilled 6’8” guys don’t grow on trees. Caleb Thompson (6’2” senior F) also is back (2.8 PPG, 1.8 RPG, 1.4 APG). Lukas Rasmussen (5’9” junior G) and Nathan Sarvi (5’10” senior G) each had double digit scoring games last year. It’ll be new Trojans doing the damage, but there should be plenty of damage done. R-P looks to tie a school record, a fifth straight trip to state. They start with six seniors and eight juniors. The Trojans again have a tough non-conference schedule, including at G-E-T and Goodhue, the Rotary Bank Holiday Classic in Rochester (Woodbury), and La Crosse-Aquinas at the La Crosse Center. Minneapolis-North, Crestwood, and Spring Grove also come calling the Trojan Center. Big league games with Caledonia are January 21 and February 13 (season finale). R-P begins the year ranked #6 in Class A, on a 28-game win streak.

Knocked from the play-offs last year by R-P were the Kingsland Knights. After a big upset win in the semis over Spring Grove, John Fenske’s guys finished as 1A East runner-ups (7-11, 13-14). They graduated five key seniors including 1,000-point scorer, All-TRC guard Jacob Rindels. This year’s Knights will be headed by a potential 1,000-point guy, Quinn Larson. A fourth-year player, the 6’0” G/F is Kingsland’s top returning scorer (12.3), rebounder (5.5), assistor (2.7), and thief (1.6 SPG). Also back are Brennen O’Connor (5’8” .....
