08-09 Week 7 Tuesday Night Scoreboard Club

Here's a stream of insanity look at what caught my eye from the Tuesday games 1/13/09.
  • How about 49 for Jordan Smith of Orono on the road at Annandale in a 78-75 win. He can really shoot it.
  • Edina suffers their 1st loss as they lost 64-58 at Shakopee. Matt Zager with 19 in the win. The Sabers are now 6-4 and have won 3 in a row. They'll be very tough in the Missota.
  • Richfield stays undefeated in the Classic Suburban with a 55-52 home win over Tartan. Phillip Freeman with a late triple in that one. They go to Hopkins on Friday and then Sibley next Tuesday. OUCH!
  • Thomas Schalk goes nuts for 34 as Apple Valley blows out Minnetonka by 23. Only 3 for Cole Stefan?
  • Dajon Newell with 20 for Lakeville N, but not enough as Ethan Wragge gets 21 for a Eden Prairie win. That snaps the 8 game winning streak for the Panthers.
  • Jefferson continues to win as they hold off Eagan in OT. They're 5-3 but their 3 losses are by a total of 8 points. Eagan has lost 6 games by 6 points or less.
  • One more from the Lake at Chaska holds off Lakeville S in OT. Sophomores big in this one. Alex Richter of LS with 22, Jake White with 21 for Chaska. Burnsville, Chaska and EP all 5-1 on top of the Lake with Jefferson 1 game back. Chaska is at Jefferson Friday night.
  • Jasper Duberry beats the buzzer as Champlin Park wins at Blaine 75-73. Kyle Zimmerman continues to play big with 25 points. Dylan Rodriguez with 34 in the loss for Blaine (25 2nd half). The Rebels have now won 5 in a row and go to Osseo tomorrow while Blaine has now lost 7 straight. Read the thoughts from the Champlin Park blog here.
  • Speaking of Osseo, Sam Dower with 38 and 18 in a big win over Coon Rapids.
  • Johnson gets a buzzer beating layup from Lamar Anderson to beat Central. Central having a very nice year despite the losses of Dylan Hale and Larry Brown from last year's team. Jordan Larson with 22 in the loss.
  • Spring Lake Park gets past Benilde-St. Margaret's in OT in the North Suburban. Peter Crawford with 32 for BSM. Trey Scott with 32 for SLP. Spring Lake Park was up 10 at half in that one.
  • Henry gets a late 3 from Evan Gray for a 67-64 win at South. Gray leads the way for Henry with 23, 20 for Jordan Hughes. Can you say trap game for Henry with Washburn coming up on Friday? Alonzo Traylor huge again inside for South with 27 and 17.
  • PACT goes to Maranatha and wins 54-52. Wonder what the Basketblogger thinks of that one (he'll probably know when the last MCA home loss was, it's been a while). PACT is 7-5 and they've won 4 in a row. MCA got 18 from Darian Pittman in the loss. They're now 10-2 but they don't have a real standout win. Next major test is Jan 30th at home against Caleb Palkert and SW Christian. Both of those teams need help to catch Lester Prairie.
  • Meadow Creek goes to New Life and wins for the 2nd league loss for NLA. MCCA got the game winner with 2.5 to go. Robbie Anderstrom with 16 in the loss.
  • Como Park comes from 16-14 down at half to put up 49 in the 2nd half in a 63-31 win over Harding. The reverse has happened to the Cougars in the last 2 games.


  1. PACT is probably the best they have ever been and MCA is the worst they've been in comparison to past years. I knew that game would be close.

    For the record, the last MCA home loss was in the 2004-2005 season when the Mustangs fell to the MTS Wolves.

  2. Andre-

    PACT's best year was probably last season, when they had three seniors with a lot of varsity experience, includinga 6'9" big, so this is probly their second best team, regardless, a huge win for their program. PACT traditionally is drilled by the Mustangs.

    MTS vs. Maranatha in 2004- then-7th- grader and former Maranatha student Kevin Noreen with the game winning shot for MTS. Curiously, they have never played a regular season game against each other since then.

  3. I would agree with that assessment. While I haven't seen PACT this season, I know they lost some good players from a nice team. But the cupboard isn't bare either with Mathis and Rink. The may turnout to be a sleeper in the west as they're 5-1 against the MCAA with the loss being a close one at SW Christian. Looking forward to seeing them at Mpls SW on Feb 2nd.

  4. I didn't know that Kevin Noreen would come back and haunt them so soon. He'll have the varsity experience of a super senior by the time he's done.
