State basketball preview: Royals return to the big dance, Apple Valley No. 1 seed
This week, the Woodbury boys basketball team is making its second consecutive and seventh overall appearance in the Minnesota state tournament. The Royals were ousted by Hopkins in the quarterfinal round in 2012. Woodbury won its only state championship in 1983.
This year, the coaches selected the top seeds in all four classes for the second time. The top four seeds' opponents were determined by blind draw. Prior to last year only Class AAA and Class AAAA seeded their top teams.
