The gymnasium at Minnehaha Academy took damage in the explosion that rocked the school just prior to the start of thi school year.  It's forced the defending Class AA Champion Redhawks to spend a lot of time on the road - for both practices and games - this season.

One of their road games is a massive clash Thursday night at Apple Valley that will be carried on ESPNU.


The game features Apple Valley's Tre Jones, who's the nation's #1-rated point guard prospect against Minnehaha Academy's Jalen Suggs, the #1-rated point guard in the nation among the Class of 2020.
