Duluth scoring ace is next in line for 3,000

Sometime Friday night, Anders Broman is expected to become the third Minnesota high school basketball players this season to reach at least 3,000 career points.

Broman, a junior guard from Lakeview Christian Academy in Duluth, is averaging a state-leading 45.8 points per game and has 2,979 points going into the game against Christ's Household of Faith. Broman scored 44 in a victory over Wrenshall on Tuesday.

Braham's Rebekah Dahlman reached that mark on Dec. 16 and Watertown-Mayer's Marissa Janning did it on Jan. 5.

Prior to this season, 14 players had topped the 3,000-point mark. All but two -- Janet Karvonen of New York Mills and Joel McDonald of Chisholm -- have done so since 1997. An expanded season is a most likely contributor, along with increased three-point shooting.

CHANGE IN THE GYM

• Perham's gymnastics team has enjoyed a remarkable run under coach Charlie Fleck, winning eight consecutive Class 1A team championships and 17 individual event titles since 2004. This year, however, the Yellowjackets have shown a previously unseen vulnerability, including a rare dual-meet loss to Becker on Dec. 9. That's not to say that their run of state titles is over. Perham is No. 3 in the State Coaches Association Class 1A rankings, behind Melrose and New Prague. It posted its best team score of the season, 142.0, in its most recent outing. But it seems clear that the Class 1A meet will be more hotly contested than in recent years.

WORTH NOTING

• The Roseville boys' and the Wayzata girls' Nordic ski racing teams survived a makeshift man-made loop caused by poor snow conditions Saturday at Giants Ridge in Biwabik and took first place at the Mesabi East Invitational. With more than 1,000 skiers, the meet is recognized as the largest high school meet in the nation.

• Mounds View dedicated its basketball court Friday to longtime boys' coach Ziggy Kauls, who is retiring at the end of the season. The name? Kauls Court.

• Tessa Cichy became the first basketball player of either gender at Hill-Murray to surpass 2,000 career points, with a 21-point outing in a 67-48 loss to Richfield on Tuesday.

LOOKING FORWARD

• The best regular-season gymnastics meet of the season, the Lakeville North Invitational, starts at 11 a.m. Saturday. The 16-team meet will feature nine teams among the top 10 in either Class 2A or Class 1A, according the State Coaches Association rankings.

• Boys' swimming and diving teams will compete in has 16 True Team section meets this weekend.
