“We knew Marshall would give us problems,” Austin coach Kris Fadness said. “They’ve got really good players who can all shoot, all handle the ball. They spread the floor well and found ways to attack our zone.”

Class 1A

Rushford-Peterson 72, Lakeview Christian 54

Trojans coach Tom Vix  thought he could have something special. That is, in 2014.

His young Rushford-Peterson squad, including just one senior in his top seven players, has exceeded expectations all season. It was no different Thursday against the run-and-gun Lions (20-11).

Junior forward Seth Thompson scored 19 points to lead the way for the seventh-rated Trojans (27-3), who used an 11-0 run in the first half to build a 12-point advantage and never looked back.

Teammates junior forward Jorli Hauge (18 points) and sophomore guard Charlie Krambeer (14 points) were also in double digits.
Lakeview Christian senior guard Anders Broman, the state’s all-time leading scorer, scored a game-high 34 points. He concluded his prep career with 5,119 points.

Maranatha Christian 61, Mountain Lake Area 44

Maranatha excels in the open court. It also can efficently break down a team while holding the ball.

The No. 1-ranked Mustangs were at their best over the final 17 minutes, turning a slim two-point advantage into a 61-44 victory over Mountain Lake Area in the Class 1A quarterfinals at Williams Arena.

Coach Jeff Wall’s squad has used a balanced attack all season in building a 30-1 record. It was on display once again in the 17-point victory.

The Mustangs had four starters and their top player off the bench score in double figures. Sophomore Grantham Gillard, the Mustangs’ top reserve, scored all 15 of his points in the second half. Fellow sophomore Jeremiah Hanson added 13 points while seniors Garrison Gillard and Isaiah Hanson had 12 and 11 points, respectively.

Junior Josh Goldschmidt chipped in with 10 points.

The Wolverines (24-6) tried to match Maranatha by continually pounding the ball inside to Carter Kirk or Josiah Stoesz. The tandem combined for 34 points, with the 6-foot-7 junior center Kirk leading the way with 20 points.
