In basketball news...

Today at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team lost 45-44 to No. 1-ranked Minneota (10-0). In a report that I read on the game, the Vikings, who led 24-16 at halftime, had their worst shooting performance of the season but squeaked one out the door of the R/A Center at SMSU.

Girls' basketball score on December 31:
Springfield 63, Russel-Tyler-Ruthton 56
Jordan 73, Pine Island 40
Lac qui Parle Valley 55, Edgerton 35
