The Magic Elite were led by 6-foot-10 Jon Leuer with 17 points. 6-foot-0 point guard and Minnesota commitment Al Nolen and Christopher Hamblin had ten points each and 6-foot-4 Blake Hoffarber added nine points.

The Minnesota Magic Elite will face Florida Gulf coast at 7:30 AM Friday and Northeast Maine at 5:30 Friday evening.
