Strasburg-Zeeland has relied on senior standout Brody Nieuwsma for a lot of things this season. But the eighth-ranked Clippers rely on everyone for the team's key to success. Strasburg-Zeeland's defense forced Carrington into six early turnovers during a 17-4 run to start Monday's Region 3 boys basketball quarterfinal at the Jamestown Civic Center. The Clippers held on from there to win 46-35 and will face South Border in tonight's semifinals at 7:30.
GRAND FORKS—Carrington's offense fell flat in the third period for a second straight game at the Alerus Center on Saturday. But this time the Cardinals couldn't recover in the fifth-place contest of the state Class B tournament.
Maybe the biggest difference between this year and last for Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier's boys basketball team was on display last week at the Jamestown Civic Center. The Rebels have found a little swagger. A 67-56 victory over eighth-ranked Strasburg-Zeeland in the team's final game of the regular season was the shot in the arm that helped E-K-M claim the District 5 championship one week ago.
GRAND FORKS—Maara Nelson and the Carrington defense know how to disrupt a basketball game. The Cardinals made things difficult for an opposing team once again on Friday, this time during consolation play of the state Class B tournament at the Alerus Center. Nelson recorded four of her team's 10 steals, and also led the Cardinals offensively with 14 points, helping Carrington top Dickinson Trinity 40-29. Carrington will face Fairmount-Campbell-Tintah today at 2:45 p.m. for fifth-place.
GRAND FORKS—A second-half run and free throws proved to be the difference between two defensive-minded teams at the Alerus Center on Thursday. Park River-Fordville-Lankin separated itself from Carrington in the quarterfinals of the state Class B high school girls basketball tournament with an 8-0 third-period run, and went on to convert 5-of-6 foul shots in the final minute to top the Cardinals 51-44. The Region 3 champion Cardinals will face Dickinson Trinity in consolation play today at 1 p.m.
CARRINGTON—Kauri Hochhalter and Ann Endres were seventh-graders when Carrington won its state championship in Class B girls basketball. The big stage—and the big win over Central Cass in 2011—undoubtedly etched an impression in the minds of the two middle-schoolers who eventually became the next senior leaders to guide the Cardinals to a state tournament. "I remember looking up to the big seniors, and I remember watching my sister play," Hochhalter said, whose older sister Kayla was a freshman on the 2011 team. "I always dreamt that would be me someday."

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.
