Hot damn! No sleep from now to Thursday night!

Here's two final scores in boys' basketball action tonight:

Melrose 90, Pierz 61. Scottie Stone led the Dutchmen with 25 points as one of five Dutchmen players scoring in double figures. Others were Isaac Sawyer (20 points) along with Seth Noll, Ryan Elfering and Mitch Niehaus. The Pioneers had a 36-32 lead at halftime, with senior Cullin Carter leading the way for Pierz with 17 points by halftime.

Asked about the first half and the halftime deficit, Melrose head coach Ryan Duscha commented, "I told our guys to just settle down and play defense. We weren't getting back like we should have. And we also had to keep better track of (Cullin) Carter, who was tearing it up in the first half."

B-B-E 63, Eden Valley-Watkins 35.

Enough said!

Here's part of the post-game interview with BOB FM's Kirby Hemmesch and Coach Duscha...

Here's the final 40 seconds of the first half of the Holdingford game last Friday night...

At Maple Lake, the Jaguars girls' basketball team will play overtime against the Irish! Hailey Braegelman hit a shot to tie the game at 41-41 and send it into overtime. Final: Maple Lake 50, B-B-E 47.

*Coming Saturday: a very exciting youth wrestling tournament will be held at the B-B-E High School. The Little Jags wrestlers will compete in a full day of action against teams from around the area.
