The first day of high school basketball practice, Nov. 13, is a little more than a month away, but basketball players are also preparing for college.

Let's take a look at college choices by Minnesota's top boys basketball players, presented as the 2023-24 Dream Team and 15 other highly regarded players.

The Dream Team, as chosen by Star Tribune reporter Ron Haggstrom, includes a player who has picked the Gophers, one who has selected Wisconsin, one headed farther out of state and two, a senior and a sophomore, yet to make a decision.

A sophomore on the Dream Team indicates there's youth coming up through the ranks, and the rest of the list enforces that. Also clear on the list: The talent isn't coming from the paint. There's not a center among the top 20.
