As the calendar moves closer to February, the powerful Lake Conference schedule finally got underway last week. It’s an impressive circuit that features five schools all capable of beating anyone on any given night. Of the five programs, three are currently ranked in the top five in Class 4A — Hopkins at No. 2, Minnetonka at No. 4 and Eden Prairie at No. 5. That’s some serious firepower.
The interesting games come on almost every night of the week in the Lake, but none are bigger than this first showdown between three-time defending Class 4A state champion Hopkins and fourth-ranked Minnetonka, which makes it our top game of the week of Jan. 27-Feb. 2, 2014.
