Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier’s Tanner Zahn was prepared to help shoulder the scoring load at the Jamestown Civic Center on Monday night. The senior guard knew standout teammate Connor Entzi was more than...
LaMoure-Litchville-Marion’s Quinn Alo is a mountain of a young man. At 6-foot-3 and 315 pounds, not much is able to get in the way of the senior forward when he’s...
Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier didn't play during Friday's opening round of the District 5 boys basketball tournament. But that didn't mean the No. 1-seeded Rebels used their first-round bye as an off day. One day after watching Carrington drop 81 points in a win over Oakes, E-K-M was able to shut down the Cardinals 52-31 during Saturday's semifinals at the Jamestown Civic Center. E-K-M will take on Ellendale tonight at 7:30 to decide the District 5 champion.
Ellendale's boys basketball team was ranked as high as fourth in all of Class B earlier this season. The Cardinals certainly looked the part at the Jamestown Civic Center on Saturday. Ellendale shot 60 percent from the field and five players teamed to sink 9 of 17 attempts from 3-point land, helping the Cardinals cruise 73-45 over LaMoure-Litchville-Marion in the semifinals of the District 5 tournament. The Cards will face Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier tonight at 7:30 in the District 5 title game.
Carrington's Garrett Bickett has found he likes playing inside the Jamestown Civic Center. Maybe that's because the Civic Center certainly liked him on Friday. The sophomore guard, along with his Cardinal teammates, shot lights out during the opening quarterfinal game of the District 5 boys basketball tournament. Bickett poured 33 points through the cylinder, helping Carrington shoot 62 percent as a team, and the Cardinals soared over the Oakes Tornadoes 81-59. Carrington will face Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier in tonight's semifinals at 6.
The defending Region 3 champions may have been dealt a setback during the first round of the District 5 boys basketball tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center on Friday. LaMoure-Litchville-Marion starting guard Drew Thielges missed a majority of the second half of the Loboes' quarterfinal against the Barnes County North Bison, after suffering a left-ankle injury. But Thielges did score 11 in the opening two quarters, and the Loboes managed to hold on and defeat the Bison 55-41. They'll face Ellendale in tonight's semifinals at 7:30.
Maara Nelson wasn't about to let her Carrington Cardinals lose the Region 3 girls basketball championship for a second time in as many years. The junior forward was spectacular on both ends of the court against Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier at the Jamestown Civic Center on Thursday. Nelson's 20 points—16 in the first half—and five steals fueled the Cardinals past the Rebels 48-37 for the region crown. Carrington is heading back to the Class B state tournament for the first time since winning a state title in 2011 as the champion of Region 4.
A highly anticipated conclusion to the Region 3 girls basketball tournament unfolds this evening at the Jamestown Civic Center. Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier and Carrington will clash in what should be an edge-of-your-seat fourth meeting between the two teams. The past two contests were separated by two points or less, proving there is no clear-cut favorite as to who'll be wearing the region crown at the end of the night and advancing to state. The 32 minutes of suspense begins around 7:30.
Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier's Kaitlyn Schiele wasn't feeling the best prior to Tuesday's Region 3 girls basketball semifinal at the Jamestown Civic Center. But nobody would have known. The sophomore guard scored five of the Rebels' 10 fourth-period points against Medina-Pingree-Buchanan, including a successful 3-point play conversion that put E-K-M out front for good with under 6 minutes to play, and the Rebels are one of 16 Class B teams left playing in the state.
It was the kind of postseason performance all coaches hope to receive from a senior leader and a team. Carrington's Kauri Hochhalter and the Cardinals lowered the boom in the second half of Tuesday's Region 3 semifinal against LaMoure-Litchville-Marion at the Jamestown Civic Center. Hochhalter poured in 16 of her game-high 21 points after the break, while Carrington rifled off a 17-0 run and held the Loboes to 1-of-16 from the field over the final eight minutes, en route to defeating the defending Region 3 champions 51-34.
