Minnehaha Academy didn't quite provide the excitement it did in the first half, but did just enough to defeat Rochester Lourdes here at Target Center.
Analisa Ballinger, who made five threes in the first half scored just two more points the rest of the way. Rachel Hansen led all scorers - but she was taken out of the game just as I typed this and I don't have her exact stats at the moment. I'm sure you'll real all about it in tomorrow's paper - RIGHT?
Braham and Pipestone up next.
How's this for a fun start to the evening session:
Minnehaha Academy and Rochester Lourdes combined to make six three-pointers in the early going here at Target Center - on the first six made field goals of the game.
Minnehaha Academy's Analisa Ballinger (who - get this - wears number 33) could not miss. She made four in a row and added another later for 15 points to lift the Redhawks to their 31-20 halftime lead.
Barnum survives a tough, physical game with state tournament newcomer Parkers Prairie.
Katrina Newman has 10 points for Barnum at the half. Stat to know: Barnum has made 12-of-25 shots. Parkers Prairie just 6-25.
Goodhue hung tough in the second half, never giving back the lead and closing out a victory.
