The Royals will try to make it back to the state tournament after a one year absence. They start their run in the section 6AAAA playoffs Thursday February 27th as they host Saint Louis Park. There is potential they will match up Saturday March 1st with either a really young exciting Armstrong team, or the team that knocked them out of the section finals last year, Edina.
The Royals went 2-0 against both the #3 seed Minnetonka and #2 Eden Prairie, but beating a team 3 times in a row is difficult. Just ask the girls basketball team who dropped a tough one to Minnetonka last week after pounding them two times earlier this season.
The 2013-14 boys basketball team finished the season 25-1 and are currently ranked #2 in the state behind only Apple Valley. Hopkins hosted Apple Valley in early December and played them tough, losing 96-90.
