MINOT -- LaMoure-Litchville-Marion coach Mitch Carlson was pleased with the execution at the end of regulation on Friday. In overtime, however, it just didn't happen for the Loboes. Kennedy Witt buried a 3-pointer at the regulation buzzer to send it to overtime. But Kindred proved too strong, taking a 60-57 semifinal victory at the Class B state tournament inside the Minot State Dome. "(Kennedy's) a shooter," Carlson said.
MINOT -- LaMoure-Litchville-Marion hasn't been great from the free-throw line this season, shooting 58 percent. The Loboes bucked that trend in a big way on Thursday afternoon. With a 21-of-26 effort from the foul line in the fourth quarter, L-L-M knocked off third-seeded Lakota-Edmore 58-44 at the Class B state girls basketball tournament at the Minot State Dome. The Loboes (22-4) finished 27-of-37 (73 percent) from the stripe, going without a field goal in the final frame. "(Lakota-Edmore) had to take some chances and come with fouls," L-L-M coach Mitch Carlson said.
Nothing short of a state title would satisfy Colt Rasmussen on Saturday. The Jamestown High School senior already has a few school records, and with him being a two-time all-state performer, he's past just being happy to be there. "I'm hoping to take state," Rasmussen said. "My goal is to win it, and I'm pretty set on that. It depends on the competition, but that's what I'm aiming for." The state meet starts today in Bismarck, and Rasmussen hopes to polish off a career that has already seen his name make the JHS record book.
