As the 1990-1991 season began, Head Coach Levain Carter stepped into history, becoming fourth coach to lead the Tigers for nine season.  This is the second most in South basketball history.  He tied Evan O. Williams and Eric Magdanz for second place, only behind Luther Mona, who coached for 31 seasons.  Michael Winston again assisted Coach Carter.

South opened the season against Henry.  This back and forth game ended with the Tigers winning 55-54.

The Tigers hoped to continue winning against North.  For three quarters, South maintained a lead.  According to the South yearbook, senior center Jason Sims was fouled going for a rebound.  Sims was helped off the court and the Polars took over the game, closed the gap and won 79-64.

Against Edison, the Tigers played tough but again lost.  Forward Steve Seawright injured his knee and missed a number of games. The final score was 79-74.

Washburn and Southwest both fell to the Tigers in the next two conference games.  The Millers lost by 31, 82-51.  The Lakers lost 60-44.

Against Roosevelt both teams played a tough game.   The game was back and forth, with Roosevelt taking a 61-59 win.  The Tigers followed this up with another close game, this time against Henry.  Again, this was a tight game with the Tigers winning 57-54.

North again defeated the Tigers when they played for the second time.  An 11 point win gave the Polars a 54-43 win.   Against Edison, the Tigers gained revenge for their earlier loss, winning 72-62.

South ended the conference season with three more losses.  They lost to Washburn 71-63, Southwest 66-64, and Roosevelt 74-56.

In non-conference games, the Tigers were 5-5.  They defeated Richfield 63-54, White Bear Lake 58-56, Minnetonka 75-65, St. Louis Park 73-59, and Hopkins 60-55.  They lost to St. Paul Central 65-51, Park Center 70-54, Columbia Heights 51-48, Woodbury 71-57, and Eau Claire, WI 61-50.

After the season was over, Head Coach Levain Carter decided to leave South.
