I was one of many Gopher fans that made the trip to the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
  Selection Sunday for the NCAA national tournament is a lot more fun when your team is a lock to make the big dance. The Gophers men’s basketball team were seeded fifth and placed in the South Region of the bracket, which meant their opening game would be “close” to home in Milwaukee, and it made...

LPGE suffered a season ending loss to No. 3 state-ranked and top seed Melrose during the opening round of the Section 6AA West playoffs last Thursday night.

Swanville’s Troy Evans drove to the hoop against a pair of Kimball defenders in Saturday’s subsection semifinal game.
  The season came to a close for the Swanville boys last Saturday night, but like they have done all season long, they went down fighting. Eight games this season have been decided by single digits or less, and that was the case when they met No. 2 seed Kimball in Little Falls in the Section 5A...
Tiger senior Brendan Emery (34) stretched out to block a shot attempt during Saturday’s game in Little Falls.

Senior Kimberly Estrada (11) was fouled on her way to the basket during Thursday’s loss at Osakis.
A third time was not a charm for the LPGE girls last Thursday night when they met Osakis for the third time of the season when the two teams opened up the Section 6AA postseason.  While the Thunder kept close early, the Silverstreaks turned things around in a hurry to pick up a 71-35 playoff win on...
