State Finals posters are up around the B-B-E local business community!

Video has been added to the second-to-most-recent blog post that features action from Minneota on February 20.

**This blog post will include game updates and hopefully more radio links...for today's state championship game! Tip-off is at 1 p.m.

Here's the website link to Smooth Magic 107 FM of Glenwood: You have to click on the audio button at the top of the homepage and then click "play" on the new audio player website that opens up. You can watch it on Channel 45 on Satellite. Here's the link to The Train, 106.5 FM. Todd Bergeth is in the house! LINK:   

More to come. It's time to head to Target Center!

*AND the old van made it! I am in the Target Center. It's 12:49, and the pregame clock shows just under 13 minutes until it's GAME TIME!    

TIP-OFF IS COMING! Tip-off was at 13:06.

With 10:36 left, a TV timeout is called...Minneota is ahead 9 to 6. It is a very, VERY tense game! I am shaking. Someone pass me the valium!!!

With 8:20 left, Minneota has a 14-8 lead.

With 5:22 left, Minneota has built a 23-10 lead, and Coach Anderson has called a timeout.

HALFTIME: #1 Minneota 28, #4 B-B-E 18. Both teams have a pile of turnovers, but that category has hampered the Jaguars. At the break, Allisa Knight leads the Jaguars with 7 points and 5 rebounds. Josie Knutson has 4 points and 2 rebounds, and Jackie Lindsay and Karsee Kampsen each have two points.

Junior 5'10" forward Natalee Rolbiecki leads the Vikings with 10 points and 2 rebounds. Senior 5'8" guard Abby Rost has 8 points and 6 rebounds.

B-B-E has out-rebounded Minneota by a 17 to 15 margin. The shooting percentage favors Minneota: 43.5 (10-of-23) on field goals to 30.4 (7-of-23) for B-B-E from the floor. B-B-E is 4-of-7 at the line, while Minneota is 4-of-6. Hurting in the biggest way is Minneota going 4-of-9 on the arc, while B-B-E missed all five three-point shots in the first half. That's really the biggest difference in the game so far.

The second half is set to begin at approximately 13:51.

With 16:15 left in the game, Minneota is ahead 33-18.

With 11:27 left in the game, Minneota has a 40-24 lead. It's their biggest lead of the game. A media/TV timeout has been called. Minneota is now 6-of-12 on the three-point line for the game, while the Jaguars are 0-of-7.

With 82 seconds left in the game, the Vikings have a 43-38 lead. THIS HAS BECOME A VERY INTENSE GAME ONCE AGAIN!!!!!!!

Updates in a NEW blog post.
