On June 22-24, 88 registered USSSA teams participated in the inaugural USSSA Northern Nationals basketball tournament. The tournament was held at Farmington High School and Prior Lake High School. Both host groups have great facilities and did an outstanding job hosting the event.
The tournament kicked off on June 21 at the Target Center where each player and coach received a free ticket to watch the world champions Minnesota Lynx play the New York Liberty. The festivities also included a pre-game chalk-talk from Lynx assistant coach Jim Peterson. The night concluded with a message from a couple of the Lynx players. It was a great way to kick off the weekend.
The field included teams from Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Kansas. It was a great representation of basketball in the Midwest. The top two teams in each division earned a berth to the USSSA Tournament of Champions in Kansas City. There were five other regional national tournaments that also sent teams to the USSSA Tournament of Champions.
There 25 teams from Minnesota that qualified to compete in the USSSA Tournament of Champions in Kansas City and five teams from Minnesota that claimed Tournament of Champions titles. Those teams were:
Girls 3rd Grade Div 1   Elks-3
Girls 8th Grade Div 1   MN Suns Hanson
Girls 9th Grade Div 1   Urban Stars
Girls 9th Grade Div 2   Rochester Shock Bland
Girls High School        Twin Cities Shockers
