ROUND LAKE -- It may have been Valentines Day, but Southwest Star Concept didn't show any love to host Round Lake-Brewster Thursday night. With 14 points, SSC's Brooke DeWall passed her sister for third place on the all-time scoring list at SSC to lead the Quasars to their eighth straight victory with a 65-35 win over the Raiders in a girls' Red Rock Conference basketball game. "We struggled offensively," Round Lake-Brewster head coach Neil Robinson said. "We weren't taking the shots when we were open. In the first eight minutes of the game, we were patient and looking for our shots.
SLAYTON -- The last time Murray County Central and Mountain Lake/Butterfield-Odin girls' basketball teams faced each other, MCC's Emily Bose scored 31 points in a Rebel victory. Entering Monday night's game, ML/B-O head coach Larry Hempeck was determined not to let Bose beat the Wolverines again.
WORTHINGTON -- It couldn't have been a bigger game for Worthington's Sarah Boever to make her return. Playing for the first time since Jan. 22, the senior forward helped lead the Worthington girls to an 85-78 Southwest Conference victory over Pipestone Area, and with it, a share of the conference crown. "It's a very big win, because that pretty much means that we won the conference championship," Sarah Boever said.
WORTHINGTON -- In a battle of two young teams, Tracy-Milroy-Balaton opened up an 18-0 lead early and went on to a 41-21 victory over Worthington Thursday night in a non-conference dual. "I thought we wrestled well; even in the matches that we got beat, our kids wrestled hard," T-M-B head coach Karl Campbell said. "That's all we're asking for right now.
WORTHINGTON -- In a game that featured two of the top scorers in the MCCC Southern Division, it was the defense that made the difference in Minnesota West's 72-55 victory over Riverland in a women's basketball contest Wednesday night. Minnesota West's Ashlee Domine entered Wednesday's game with a division-leading 20.4 points per game average, while Riverland's Brooke Monson is averaging an even 20 points per contest. However, while Monson scored more points (26 points to Domine's 17), it was Domine's team that handed Riverland just its second division loss this season. "It's a big win for u
WORTHINGTON -- The last time the Minnesota West men's basketball team eclipsed the century mark as a team was December of 2005. That is, until Wednesday night. The Bluejays shot 58 percent from the field to earn their second MCCC Southern Division victory of the season with a 113-78 decision over a depleted Riverland team in a MCCC Southern Division men's basketball game. "This season, we've been snake bitten more than you could possibly imagine," Riverland head coach Dan Swift said. "You have to give credit. They knew our weakness and attacked our weakness.
FULDA -- For Fulda's Brooke Kuehne and Sam Raddle, Tuesday's senior night was only fitting. "It's really sad for Brooke and I," Raddle said. "We've played here for so many years and now it's our last game.
ELLSWORTH -- Ellsworth's Cody Schilling surveyed the defense, stepped back and hit a 3-pointer -- something he's done hundreds of times before. "I was actually going to come off a screen, and they sent three guys to that side of the floor, and coach just yelled 'let it fly.' So, I kind of crossed over, pulled up and shot it," Schilling said. "Right after it left my hands, I knew it was good." But this shot from the left wing wasn't like the others he's made during his career.
WORTHINGTON -- For someone who has come a long ways on and off the court, Minnesota West basketball standout Eddie Marrs doesn't have to look far to know who he's playing for. In fact, her portrait inked on his left arm is a constant reminder. "No matter how far away I am from my mom, I feel like she's always by my side," Marrs said.
