Week 12 Thursday Scoreboard Watching

While I was up in St. Cloud at the Apollo vs Tech game, an interesting night in the metro.
  • Jefferson holds off Eagan in a battle of top sophomores. Marcus Alipate 23 for Jefferson. Jameson Parsons with 19 for Eagan.
  • Knights marching. Benilde-St. Margaret's with another OT win, this time over Spring Lake Park. Seth Marx comes up big with 18 points as Peter Crawford isn't in the box score. Sean Jensen and Trey Scott held to a combined 29 points. That loss effectively clinches the North Suburban for Cooper as the Panthers are now 2 games behind. But they're still 2 in front of BSM.
  • Champlin Park loses to Andover. That pushes Champlin Park to 4th in the NW Suburban.
  • Washburn gets 24 from Cedric Martin in a blowout of Henry. That officially clinches the Minneapolis City for the Millers. This will be the 1st time in 15 years that Henry or North doesn't represent Minneapolis in the Twin Cities game on March 7th.
  • Nice road win for Minnehaha as they make the long trip to New London-Spicer. Greg Meyer with 25 points and Taylor Sparkman with 23.
  • MN Transitions with a 52 point halftime lead and they blow out Spectrum in a section 4A game. Kevin Noreen with 38 and 14. Jerrell Washington with 33. Grant Spark with 19 for the Sting. 36 assists on 38 field goals for MTS seems a little suspicious to me though. (Czar's Note 2/22/09: Upon further review MTS actually had 47 field goals in that game, my apologies to MTS for the error)


  1. I would have loved to see that Tech-Apollo matchup!

    My unofficial opinion poll says that MTS has a 50/50 chance of winning the state tournament. I voted in it but I won't state here what I voted.

  2. MTS is better offensively, but there defense could stand improving.
