The Big Game 2-24-12: Still Unbeaten, Barely

There remain 2 undefeated Minnesota high schools each among the boys and the girls.

Among the boys, #1A Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa remained unbeaten by the slimmest of margins, which is to say in OT, winning at Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted 73-68. The Lakers led in the 2nd half by as much as 40-32, then 46-41, and 61-59, and there were 2nd half ties at 50, 51, 54, 59 and 61. James Kuefler hit 2 FT to tie it up at 61-all at 1:32. Howard Lake played for the last shot but did not score.

Brian Goodwin went 4-for-4 from the FT line in OT, then iced it with a lay-up with 10 seconds left. Brian Goodwin scored 27 points and Connor Goodwin 26. Kirby Montbriand added 11. Jeff Leaf led the Lakers with 22.

#3AAAA Lakeville North defeated Apple Valley and Tyus Jones 76-68, despite Jones'29 points. Tyler Flack led a balanced attack with 18 points for North.

Among the girls, there were 3 upsets of rated teams in the metro area. Robbinsdale Cooper upset Benilde-St. Margaret's 58-35. Wayzata upset Edina 49-26. And Cambridge-Isanti defeated Buffalo 74-66 in OT and Whitney Olson broke loose for 41 points.
