Southwest Christian continues to give notice of its ability to contend for a state (Class A boys) championship, defeating last year's Section 3A champ, Mountain Lake, 84-69. The Worthington Globe credits the #3A Eagles win to constant ball pressure and great 3-point shooting, as the Eagles made 11 3s on the night. Carter Kirk of ML led all scorers with 27 points, but SWC had 3 players with 20 or more. Dominic Nibbelink had 26 points and 7 assists, Leighton Sampson 20 points and 13 boards, and Klint Knutson 20 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. SWC is now 20-1 and undefeated against Minnesota competition. ML is 18-4.
