The Big Game Feb. 27: Shakopee girls 62 Eden Prairie 40

Eden Prairie started the year 14-2 but then came the Lake Conference season plus a non-conference game at DeLaSalle. The result was a 1-9 finish...well, now, 1-10, after a shocking loss at home as the #3 seed in Section 2AAAA to #6 seed Shakopee. Shakopee started 8-7 and finished 1-3 but in between there were 6 straight wins. The bottom line: the Eagles' confidence was shot, while the Sabers were still ready to play their game. That meant hitting 8-of-11 3s in the 1st half en route to a 42-21 lead. In the 2nd half, Shakopee hit 3-of-6 3s for a total of 11-of-17. 33 of their 60 points came from beyond the arc. Haley Zerr scored 21 and Taylor Koenen 18 for the Sabers. It is Shakopee's 1st ever playoff win in Class AAAA and their 1st in any class since 2003.

Player of the Day: But the Player of the Day is the amazing Tia Elbert, who scored 49 points as #4 seed Tartan defeated #5 seed Cretin-DH in Section 4AAAA 69-65.

Coach of the Day: Juan Mitchell, Shakopee girls
