MINOT — Streaky has been the word for Jake Hanson’s offense this season.
“I’ve struggled some,” the Grafton junior said of his shooting. “It’s been kind of on and off. I didn’t have much for baskets tonight. But I hit free throws at the end.”
Hanson came up big down the stretch here Thursday. He scored the final eight points of a 16-4 run that clinched a 57-46 win against Linton-HMB in the quarterfinals of the North Dakota Class B boys high school basketball tournament.

In shades of his all-state older brother Justin Purintun, junior guard Tanner Purintun stepped up and connected the dagger that the Linton-HMB Lions were looking for all evening inside the Jamestown Civic Center on Thursday night.
Clinging to a 32-25 lead with just over three-and ahalf minutes remaining in the championship game of the Region 3 tournament against the LaMoure Loboes, Purintun fired up a shot from the left wing and drilled the Lions’ only threepointer of the entire contest to hand Linton-HMB a 10- piont cushion they’d never relinquish.
The Linton High School Prairie All-Star Football Camp is set for June 3-4.
Cost is $40 for kids in grades 7-8 and $55 for kids in grades 9 and up.
The camp will be conducted by high school and college coaches.
Major flooding once again is forecast in the south central North Dakota town of Linton.
The National Weather Service on Monday said Beaver Creek had surpassed minor flood stage of 9 feet. The creek was forecast to rise to 14.8 feet late Saturday.
The defending state champs are back in the big dance.
For the third time this season, the Linton Lions were unable to find an answer for Eli Benz and the Kidder County Pirates. Benz racked up a game-high 23 points and the Pirates rolled to a 46-37 victory in the championship game of the Region 3 Girls’ Basketball Tournament on Thursday night in Hazelton.
Beaver Creek offered no warning to the people of Linton and Emmons County last spring that it would spring from its banks like never before and forever change the community.
But out of the disaster, the community hopes some good will come. Since the waters receded, the people of Emmons County have worked to prepare themselves for future problems and to strengthen the community and its economy.
