FARGO—Anna Holen used to feel starstruck by former North Dakota Miss Basketball award winners. Little did she know that one day her name would be added to the list. The LaMoure-Litchville-Marion guard became the 37th Miss Basketball award winner Saturday, March 10 at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex in Fargo. The award is presented annually to the top senior player in the state by the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
Carrington's Trey Rosenau had one job Friday, March 9, at Harold Newman Arena—hold Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier's Lane Hanson to less than 20 points. Hanson scored 17 in the championship game of the Region 3 boys basketball tournament, and Carrington is headed back to the state 'B' for the first time since winning a state title in 2010. The Cardinals rolled 64-49 over the Rebels. "Hanson, he's a good player, and I respect him and I respect his team," said Rosenau, a 6-2 junior forward who bench presses 225 pounds. "But I just had to shut him down. That was my one goal."
University of Jamestown women's basketball has a third opportunity in four seasons to try and take the bark out of the Concordia Bulldogs. The eighth-ranked Jimmies dominated ninth-ranked Indiana Tech 82-63 in the round of 16 at the NAIA Division II national tournament Friday, March 9, in Sioux City, Iowa. Jamestown faces a very familiar foe in Saturday's 3 p.m. quarterfinal back at the Tyson Events Center in second-ranked Concordia (Neb.).

Jamestown outrebounded the Warriors 48-24, sank 17 of 20 at the foul line and outscored its opponent off the bench 37-18.
Tyler Zahn was a freshman on the bench two years ago for the Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier boys basketball team. He watched as the Rebels and his older brother, Tanner Zahn, lost to Strasburg-Zeeland in the Region 3 championship game. Now a starting guard, Zahn and the Rebels have a second shot at the title. The junior buried back-to-back 3-pointers to open the scoring Thursday, March 8, at the Jamestown Civic Center, as the Rebels never trailed in a 59-50 victory over LaMoure-Litchville-Marion in the Region 3 tournament semifinals.
Kolton Vetter and Garrett Bickett have been making Carrington's offense sing for a number of years. The senior tandem tuned up the Cardinals again on semifinal night of the Region 3 boys basketball tournament Thursday, March 8, at the Jamestown Civic Center. Vetter made 3 of 4 from 3-point range and scored 18 points, while Bickett buried 4 of 9 from beyond the arc and tallied 20, leading the Cardinals to a 75-46 victory over Ellendale.
Defensively, the Jimmie women's basketball team can make up for a multitude of sins. University of Jamestown did it again Wednesday, March 7, to open the NAIA Division II national tournament in Sioux City, Iowa. "I love the kids' defensive effort," said Jimmie head coach Greg Ulland, "even though we shot like garbage from the 3-point line."

Jacob Ulmer made the most of his opportunities Tuesday, March 6, at the Jamestown Civic Center. LaMoure-Litchville-Marion's 6-foot-1 junior forward scored only six points on three shots, but four were of the clutch variety in the quarterfinals of the Region 3 boys basketball tournament. Ulmer's back-to-back buckets near the basket midway through the third quarter snapped a 32-32 tie with Strasburg-Zeeland, and the Loboes would eventually sail 53-41 over the District 6 champion Clippers.
