Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier did something not many boys basketball teams can claim at the Jamestown Civic Center on Tuesday. The Rebels held a Dan Carr-coached Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock team without a field goal for not one period, but two during the semifinals of the Region 3 tournament. A superhuman-like defensive effort sent the Rebels to Thursday's championship game, where they'll face Strasburg-Zeeland at 7:30. E-K-M dismantled the Lions 63-31.
Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier posted just five offensive rebounds all afternoon against Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter. But the team's final one was a biggie. Senior Connor Entzi's board and putback with 35 seconds left in Monday's quarterfinal game of the Region 3 boys basketball tournament, lifted the Rebels to a 47-45 victory over the Imperials at the Jamestown Civic Center on Monday. E-K-M, the District 5 tournament champions, survived and will face Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock in tonight's semifinals at 6.
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."
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...
