The Big Dance in St. Paul, Minnesota June 30th
A lot of hype every year for this tournament in the Midwest! This
tournament has become a great tradition for asian basketball in the Minnesota and Milwaukee area. With most of the teams representing
the hmong population in the region, it draws over 30 plus teams every year. With the Hmong Sports Festival just
around the corner, you have a good amount of spectators to watch the games. Thats more than most tournaments. This year should
be exciting. The Northsiderz have never won this major tournament, but with the #1 player in the country (Xiro) they have
been dominating the region. So maybe this year they will finally take it! We will see. The Mpls Lakers are the defending champs,
so they will be the team to beat. Here is who we think will win this year's Big Dance.
1. Northsiderz - Xiro will finally get over the hump and prove why he's the best player in the country. And also
with the added fire power of Alex at point it should be almost a garuantee for them to win.
2. Mpls Lakers - if Hank (moved to Arizona) plays with the Lakers they should easily make it to the Championship
game and even repeat!
3. Team Houston - not sure if this team is going to show up. But if they do, they will suprise this region with
their outstanding young talent. Very fast and athletic team that could take it all.
4. Gory - This new look team with former Fosho superstar Lou Cha change jerseys should propel them at least in
the Final Four.
