Hooker said it can’t get much better than that and was the “exclamation point” needed after just squeaking by Lakeville North in overtime of the quarterfinals.

Park Center made sure to maintain control throughout both halves Thursday. The Pirates’ built a 37-22 halftime lead and added to it in the second half. Isaiah McKay scored 14 of his 16 points in the first half and was one of four Park Center starters in double figures.

Hooker had 14 points, eight rebounds. Daniels had 12 points. Devin Buckley had a double-double with 13 points, 11 rebounds. Fifth man Joshua Matthews had nine points, seven rebounds.

“I think they underestimated us a little bit,” McKay said. “This puts a stamp on everything.”

Edina’s all-time leading scorer, Woodward, managed just 17 points after scoring 40 in the quarterfinals.

DeLaSalle 86, St. Paul Johnson 59

No. 1-ranked DeLaSalle took care of business Friday afternoon, showing why many basketball fans consider them the state’s best team regardless of class with an 86-59 victory over St. Paul Johnson.

The Islanders (29-1) got 30 points from center Reid Travis and advance to Saturday’s Class 3A championship game, hoping to win a second-consecutive state title.

Austin 68, Marshall (OT)

It was overtime and undefeated Austin had one of its big men, Tom Aase, on the bench with five fouls and the other, Joe Aase, in a funk and struggling with his shot.

This, thought teammate Zach Wessels, was his time. Wessels, a smooth 6-foot-2 junior guard, scored four points in overtime, including a clutch three-point play. He also handled Marshall’s desperation pressure with poise to help the Packers improve to 30-0 with a 68-65 victory.

“The team feeds off me and my energy,” said Wessels, who finished with 20 points, six assists and four steals. “It’s my job to step up and make sure everybody’s pumped up and ready to play.”

For one half, it appeared that Marshall’s balanced attack was going to put an end to Austin’s dream season.

With a lineup of interchangeable parts, the Tigers used endless motion to find holes in the Austin zone. Marshall shot 70.6 percent from the field in the first half to take a 30-28 halftime lead.
