Two games tonight...and a fish fry in Brooten! (LIVE VIDEOS**)

On tap for tonight:

The B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team hosts Pine River-Backus in a rematch of last year's sub-section semifinals. PR-B (9-2) is the second-best team in the QRF rankings in Sub-Section 5A-West. They have just taken their two losses of the season last week: 58-46 to Esko and 62-52 to Cass Lake-Bena.

The girls' basketball game will be carried on air by 106.5 FM The Train.

Down Highway 55 a short spell, the B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team is at Paynesville in a highly-anticipated border battle and rematch of the game won by B-B-E on January 26 by a 73-54 score.

More to come, including the video players to be posted by 5:30 p.m. I'm gonna add them here on this blog post (below).

And don't forget! Tonight is fish fry night! Come to the KaDe Shack and take that in! Here's more details on that (also on page 4 this week) ...short link:

Let's reward the B-B-E Knights of Columbus for hosting this event!

They serve at the KaDe Shack until 8:30 p.m.! And take-outs are available, as always.

Here's the boys' basketball game live video:

Here's the girls' basketball game live video:

With 13:44 left in the first half, the B-B-E boys' basketball team has a 7-3 lead.

The girls' basketball game won't tip off until about 7:22 p.m.

With just under 12 minutes left in the boys' basketball game, Kaden Pieper hit a tough floating shot along the right baseline between two defenders to put his team up 9-3.

With 16:44 left in the first half, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team has a 4-2 lead after Karissa Jones made a nice, aggressive move to the basket. Then with 16:06 left, Jackie Lindsay canned two free throws for a 6-2 lead. Then with 15:50 left, Allisa Knight hit a weakside rebound shot for an 8-2 lead. Later, with 12 minutes left, B-B-E has an 11-4 lead. With 11:54 left, Josie Knutson shot two free throws and made one for a 12-4 lead.

Just inside 11 minutes to go, Paynesville's Chase Bayer hit a long, bombing down town three-pointer to make it B-B-E 11, Paynesville 9. Then with 9:12 to go, B-B-E went into a timeout trailing 12 to 11, the first time of the night that the Bulldogs had the lead. Out of the timeout, Pieper hit a long three-pointer for a 14-12 lead at the nine-minute mark. Pieper then made it back-to-back with a running layup on the left side to put the Jaguars ahead 16-12. Luke Dingmann, left alone on the right side, made a quick back door shot and was fouled with 8:06 left. The free throw was no good, but the Jaguars held an 18-12 lead. With 7:30 left, a great Ryan Schwinghammer-to-Kaden Pieper dish led to a Pieper bucket on the left block. He was fouled, but the Bulldogs called a timeout.

Too much to keep up to online! I am headed to Belgrade.
