When winning streaks reach double figures it's time to take notice. That's the case with Mahtomedi.
The Class 3A Zephyrs (15-2) return to the Metro Top 10, holding down the final spot while riding a 12-game winning streak. Both of their losses came in December.

This week's marquee matchup
Park Center at Totino-Grace, 6 p.m. Thursday
This is one of few remaining regular-season games that Park Center could possibly lose. Totino-Grace will need senior guard Taison Chatman, committed to play for Ohio State in college, to be at his best. Park Center has plenty of scoring options with five players averaging in double figures and a sixth at 9.4 points per game. The Eagles lost at Park Center 76-62 a little less than a month ago.
