Trent Lockett Adds Two Major Offers
Trent Lockett is traveling to Las Vegas with Watts to participate in the Phase 1 Hoops Fall Desert Showcase Saturday.
Lockett, who was a sixth man last season, helped lead the Royals to a 26-2 mark last year.
Hopkins won the Class AAAA (biggest schools) title in 2005 and 2006 and was the favorite to win it all last year before they were upset by crosstown rival Minnetonka 55-53 in the second round of the section playoffs. They had not been challenged during the regular season as their closest game against a Minnesota opponent was an 11-point win.
Lockett averaged 7.5 points per game last season and had six double-figure efforts, including 17-points against Minneapolis Roosevelt and Milwaukee Lutheran.
Lockett will be counted on more heavily with the graduation of guards Blake Hoffarber (25.2 points per game), who is at Minnesota and Tyler Nicolai (12.4), who is at Division III St. Thomas and center Chris Pfeifer, who is at Division II Concordia St. Paul.
Hopkins traditionally faces one of Minnesota's toughest schedules and will play in the Timberwolves Shootout in January.
