Fosston ran out to an 8-2 lead over #2 Southwest Minnesota Christian, but SWC recovered quickly to lead 19-10 at 5:29 and 29-17 at the half. Andrew Top closed out the 17-2 run with a 3 and a 2 45 seconds apart around 5:30, and finished with a game-high 9 1st half points. The 1st half stats, generally, were pretty close except for one not insignificant number: SWC shot 50 percent and Fosston just 26 percent.
Fosston didn't do anything special to deny 6-9 Zach Huisken of SWC, and in the 1st half he had just 4 points but 7 boards and 3 blocks. In the 2nd he asserted himself a little more and scored 11 points, with 7 more boards and 3 more blocks, for totals of 15 points, 14 boards and 6 blocks.
So, in the 2nd half the lead went as high as 44-19 at 12:59 and as low as 56-41, but that was with just 37 seconds remaining. SWC shot 51 percent and Fosston just 29, and that was all she wrote.
