Raiding the Lineup

Prologue
To Cretin-Derham Hall for a showdown between the Raiders and #8AAAA Eden Prairie.  Both lineups without a couple of key pieces (more later).  A weird night all around.  First, I pass on the best hot dog around and decide to go with the pizza meal deal (more Lays chips for the counter) instead.  That was my remorse for passing on the pizza at Cooper on Tuesday.  I end up with Coke for the drink (wanted Gatorade) and I had to enjoy it with Ryan James, YUCK!  For those who follow us on twitter, you'll know our Pepsi (me) vs Coke (RJ) rivalry boiled over during the super bowl.  Also, no Suel Forrester on the microphone tonight which was quite unfortunate.  Always a unique experience listening to him.  Quality music is a regular item though so we pick this classic from a timeout.

Game Time:
John Henry and Austin Andrews out of the Eden Prairie lineup.  No Karsten Broadley for CDH.  Great start for EP.  Ariel Bland with a dunk and blocked shot that are followed by back to back Drake Dobbs triples.  Bland with another dunk to close the 14-3 run.  21-9 Eagles at the 11 minute mark. Dobbs already with 10.  Tre Holloman brings CDH back with a triple and leaks out for a layup.  He adds a steal for another bucket and a pair of 3s.  The last is banked in on a stepback.  The CDH run is 17-2 over 5 plus minutes.  CDH 31-26 at the 5 minute mark.  Josiah Remus-Ford deep off the CDH bench with a couple of late 3s to keep CDH up at the break 41-37.

Jaeden King was on the floor after the halftime buzzer.  After a couple minutes of evaluation, he's off to the locker room.  He starts the second half but just 40 seconds into the 2nd half, he's down again and not going anywhere.  After a long delay, he's taken off in a wheelchair.  I send my well wishes for a quick recovery.

Connor Christensen with 2 buckets, then a putback and knocking down a 3 on an extra pass for early EP offense.  Curtis Jones picking up for King's absence with a triple, 2 freebies and a putback of his own.  53-49 EP at 11:15.  Miles Frisch, the main replacement for Austin Andrews, with a triple and the Eagles lead is 58-51 with 10:30 left.  CDH counters with a 12-0 run.  Holloman 3 free throws and a turnover conversion in the run. Will Burke with a pretty fake handoff for a bucket on an old Bill McKee set that CDH has run forever.  Frisch breaks the run with a textbook corner 3 on a baseline drift.  Bland crashes the offensive board for 2 free throws.  63 all with 3:03 left.  He'll add 1 more FT for the lead with 2:23 left.

Amari Carter with a 3 point play and CDH with 4 of 4 free throws to go up 6 with 49 seconds left.  Bland misses 2 chances to cut the lead but CDH misses 2 free throws and Dobbs makes it a 1 possession game with 20.8 left.  CDH 1 free throw and Dobbs quickly attacking the other way.  He's fouled and makes the 1st of 2.  The second is no good and EP has it.  It goes inside to Christensen all alone but he knows the lead is 3.  So he kicks opposite to Brendan Donohue (John Henry's replacement) wide open on the left wing.  He buries the triple for his only hoop of the night.  That ties the game at 71 and we'll go to overtime (after already seeing OT in the sophomore game)

In the overtime, Tre Holloman with a slick assist to Will Burke for a layup.  Holloman adds 4 FTs for a 3 point CDH lead with 1:17 left.  EP trying to rally down 6, then a tough illegal screen call against them.  Coach Flom not at all happy with that call and later both coaches chirp at each other for double technicals.  No free throws for those but the rest is free throws for fouls.  CDH goes on to win 86-78 in OT.

Post Game:
For Eden Prairie, Drake Dobbs leads the way with 26 points.  Ariel Bland and Connor Christensen each add 17.  Like what both of them did in the game.  Christensen always gets a tough task on the defensive end.  Bland was very active inside and productive.  Offense hard to come by for the rest of the depleted roster as they only had 18 points.  The Eagles fall to 13-8 overall and have now lost 3 straight.  Tough back to back as Cambridge-Isanti visits tomorrow.  They also have 3 conference games and a visit from Minneapolis North remaining.  Eden Prairie now looking at the 3 seed thanks to a head to head loss to Shakopee.  Plus a game left with Edina who's lurking not too far behind.  But The Eagles do hope to be fully healthy next week.

For Cretin-Derham Hall, Curtis Jones finishes with 27 points including 12-13 from the charity stripe.  Tre Holloman was top notch with 24 points and many assists.  15 of his points in the 1st half and then 7 of 8 free throws after the half.  Will Burke with a workman like outing of 13 points.  The Raiders have now won 8 straight and 13 of 14 since just before Christmas.  They visit #1AAA De La Salle in a boys/girls doubleheader on Saturday night with the Christian Brothers Trophy on the line.  Then a big Suburban East matchup a week later as East Ridge visits.  CDH currently tied with White Bear Lake for 2nd place in the league with the 2nd seed in loaded 4AAAA also on the line.  A loss in that East Ridge game and Tartan running the table could knock the Raiders down to a 4 vs 5 home rematch with North St. Paul in the 1st round.  Granted the Suburban East coaches have ganged up on the Metro East in voting for a long time.

Fighting the snow

The darn white stuff still hanging around so that will slow and delay my travels but not stop them.  So on the road we go thru the snow this week.  As has been fairly common on Mondays and Wednesdays this season, its TCAC delight.  In between, we'll fit in an adventure to the NW suburbs for a showdown in the Metro West.

Monday: Hope Academy 71 Minnesota Transitions 55
A matchup of 2 teams battling for position in section 4A.  Remember that last year 4A and 4AA went to a tiered system of byes.  So a 1 seed difference could mean an extra game.  We'll see what happens with that this season.  Hope would open a 12 point halftime lead only to see a Wolves 11-0 run bring the game back to within 1 with under 13 minutes left.  But Hope star Caleb Hoilien goes for 13 of 17 Lions points (with an assist on 1 of the 2 other buckets) just after that.  Hope pushes the lead back to 14.  MTS gets 1 last chance down 9 and they have the ball after a blocked shot with about 4 minutes to go.  Wolves can't convert and Hope buries a 3 on the other end to clear any doubt.  Sam Ojebode does his usual dirty work on the glass for Hope.  Caleb Hoilien with 5 3s and 30 points to lead all scorers.  Michael Emery Minor with 27 to lead MTS.  Guard Kyriaun Christian adds 16 for the Wolves.  MTS has beat up on the lesser part of the section and with their ability to score quickly, they are one of the wildcards to watch in the section. 

Wednesday: Chesterton Academy 55 MSAD 34
To the Galleria for an off night of shopping.  OK maybe not, but its right next door.  Of course, after all of the walking I did thru the building, I felt like I had done the 3 blocks to get there.  Gym is buried in a back corner of the building and the logical entrance (which I exited by) was of course locked.  Neat little popcorn machine working and 3 rows of chairs for "bleachers".  But its obstructed view seating.  For those who saw the picture on twitter (and if not, LOOK NOW!), I had to peer around the pillar to get the full floor.  As to the game itself, by the time I finally made it in MSAD had taken a 9-3 lead.  But I'm not good luck for the Trojans.  Its all Chesterton from there.  36-22 at the break, lots of Chesterton guys see time even early.  Knights win easily.  Chesterton is in a very tight pack of 6 teams right behind the leaders in section 4A.  But they have losses to Christian Life and Liberty Classical who are also in that pack.  MSAD playing with only 6 guys.

Tuesday: Chaska 80 Robbinsdale Cooper 51
The good news for Cooper in this one is that they kept Cole Nicholson from going for another school record.  He had 51 points in their 1st meeting this season.  Bad news he still had 28 with no good answer for him.  11 point game at the half.  Chaska blows it open with a 16-2 run to start the 2nd half.  Nicholson with the last 7 points of that run.  55-30 Chaska with under 12 minutes left.  That's just about enough for Cooper coach Bo Powell as he keeps his star 3 guards on the bench most of the rest of the way.  Not a good effort on either end for Cooper.  Too many clean looks and way too many easy catches and scores for Cole Nicholson.  Then again Cooper really has no good matchup for him either.  Conner Krenos adds 18 points for Chaska.  Jalen Justice leads Cooper with 11 but all in the 1st half.  Chaska has won 5 in a row and 11 of 12 since a holiday loss at Eden Prairie.  That only loss was a buzzer beater loss at St. Louis Park.  Chaska remains tied with St. Louis Park on top of the Metro West at 8-1.  The teams have their rematch in Chaska next Friday.  Cooper now a disappointing 4-5 (10-9 overall) and tied for 4th in the league with their 3rd straight loss.  But with their firepower at the guard spots, they are capable of beating absolutely anybody in AAA.  Not a team you want to see come playoff time.

Lions, darn Lions and a few statistics

Prologue
Give me a break, give me a break ... break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.  To The Sal in St. Paul for what could be a potential matchup at state. Its Lions vs Lions.  CHOF taking on #8A Spring Grove in a matchup of teams that are currently amongst the favorites in their sections come playoff time.  We get a martial arts display with swords at halftime.  Nice Spring Grove crowd making the trip north.  They're coming off a loss at Mayer Lutheran last night as part of the metro area tour.

Game Time:
Spring Grove's offense struggling early as it takes almost 6 minutes before a 2nd field goal.  But they're within 9-7 at the 12 minute mark.  Then a 10-2 CHOF run thanks to a pair of 3s and 2-3 free throws being fouled on a 3.  Isaac Collins runs for a layup to end the run and that forces a Spring Grove timeout at the 9:30 mark.  19-9 CHOF on top.  Alex Folz already on the bench for Spring Grove with 3 fouls.  Then at the 7:23 CHOF star McCaleb Alleman will sit with his 3rd.  Soph Caden Grinde cuts to 2 and converts a steal for 2 more and the CHOF lead is down to 5.  But a 7-0 CHOF runs pushes the lead back to 12.  Preston Alleman converts a turnover.  Erik Strandlund on the offensive board for a 3 point play and converting another turnover.  Very sloppy half for Spring Grove in terms of turnovers.  CHOF leads 31-19 at the break.

Spring Grove with 9 of the 1st 13 points of the 2nd half.  Preston Alleman breaks that run to keep the lead at 37-28 with 13:43 left.  Folz starting to produce after the 1st half foul trouble.  He adds a couple of hoops to cut the lead to 7.  McCaleb Alleman with a 3 point play at the 7:04 mark and that is the 4th on Spring Grove star Ethan Matzke.  Matzke stays in and buries a 3 and makes a free throw.  Noah Elton adds 2 free throws with 3:07 left and the CHOF lead is down to 49-45.

McCaleb Alleman with 2 free throw to break the momentum.  Then, after the teams trade turnovers, he'll swat an attempt away at the basket.  CHOF can't convert it and Matzke buries another 3 with 1:15 left to make it a 1 possession game.  Its Erik Strandlund back the other way for a layup.  Then another CHOF layup off a turnover and Spring Grove is fuming at no whistle.  Spring Grove with a steal to cut it to 5 with 24.6 left.  But after a layup with 12 seconds left, there's no timeout and the ball rolls away and tick tick tick goes the clock.  CHOF wins 58-52.

Post Game:
For Spring Grove, they lose their 3rd straight after a 12 game winning streak.  Spring Grove is now 14-4 overall, 11-0 in the Southeast Conference.  It doesn't get any easier as they have a tough trip to Grand Meadow on Monday.  A win would have been really big in the QRF (CHOF currently #2 there) as they continue to battle Hayfield for the top seed in section 1A.  Forward Ethan Matzke leads the way with 18 points.  Soph Caden Grinde with 12 and Noah Elton with 12.

CHOF improves to 13-4 with the win. They've won 8 of 9 and 5 in a row since a tough 2 point OT loss to St. Paul Academy.  4 of the 5 starters end up in double figures.  Preston Alleman with 16, McCaleb Alleman with 12 despite foul trouble in the 1st half.  Erik Strandlund with 11, Isaac Collins with 10.  The Lions host St. Agnes on Tuesday before 5 in a row against the current and former MCAA.  They still have a couple of important section 4A games on the schedule as they have trips to West Lutheran and Minnesota Transitions.  Both of those teams are looking at top 5 seeds in the section.

Recovery during the cold

Prologue
A couple of frigid nights in the metro.  Almost had to dig out the ushanka for the cold.  But a double dose of ski mask makes me cozy.  First its a Metro West trip to Richfield to see them take on Kennedy.  Then the top of the Lake Conference on display with Eden Prairie visiting Hopkins.  Hot Dogs for fuel both nights along with Coke products.  Such hardship.  Excuse me while I sip a Pepsi while I write this at Dacha De Czar.

Thursday: Bloomington Kennedy 80 Richfield 70
Ryan Miles scores 9 right away and Richfield opens a quick 11-2 lead.   Lamar Grayson attacking for Richfield as well.  Those 2 carry the Spartans offense wtih 29 1st half points.  Terrell Barber with 12 in the half to keep Kennedy within 42-30 at the break.  Kennedy storms back with a 10-0 run thanks to 8 points at the rim from post Laronte Mormont.  No matchup inside for the big lefty.  The corners of the Richfield 1-3-1 exposed in the 2nd half as Kennedy hits 6 3s and forces Richfield out of the zone.  But its still a 3 point game with under 4 to play.  Kennedy scores 7 in a row to push the margin to 10 with 2:55 left and its over.  Sophs Amarion Hanspard  and Habil Farah each go for 4 triples and 12 points on the night for Kennedy.  25-6 Kennedy bench scoring advantage.  Terrell Barber leads Kennedy with 20, Laronte Mormont with 13 of his 15 in 2nd half.  Lamar Grayson 23 to lead Richfield.  Mitchell January 19 and Ryan Miles 17 were other scoring leaders for Richfield.  Big loss for Richfield as they join Kennedy at 1-7 in the Metro West cellar.  It was a must win for the Spartans too as they try to stay within the tiebreaker margin with St. Croix Lutheran in the race to see who hosts the rematch in the 3AAA 4 vs 5 game.  Richfield won a close one at St. Croix Lutheran in early January to hold that tiebreaker.  Kennedy gets a critical win in their fight with Highland Park for the 6 seed in that same section.

Friday: #1AAAA Hopkins 78 #7AAAA Eden Prairie 71
Both teams come in tied with Wayzata on top of the Lake Conference as they go into this final round of the 1st rotation of league play.  Zeke Nnaji once again doing his thing inside.  He adds a post bucket and is fouled after Dane Zimmer hits 1 bucket and a triple.  27-18 at the 5:49 mark.  Then the bombs start flying.  Drake Dobbs, John Henry twice, Kerwin Walton, Jalen Treml and Connor Christensen to beat the halftime buzzer..  Those bombs help Eden Prairie go on a 10-1 run over the last 2:40 of the half.  36-34 Eden Prairie up at the break.

The Eagles keep that momentum going early in the second half.  That's despite both teams having a very cold stretch.  John Henry with a putback and fouled to end a 17-3 Eden Prairie run.  43-36 EP with 14:50 to play.  Then Nnaji and Dobbs start going back and forth to lead their offenses.  They trade 3 point plays.  Nnaji scores, Dobbs from deep and another hoop.  Nnaji 2 putbacks.  Dobbs with a 3 plus a bucket and foul around a Nnaji hoop.  64-58 Eden Prairie with 6:49 left. 

Jalen Dearring comes back in at that point after sitting almost 4 minutes with 4 fouls.  He responds by scoring the next 9 points of the game in under 2 minutes.  2 freebies to start it, a deuce, a triple and bonus freebies to end it.  Now EP needs a timeout as its 67-64 Hopkins with 4:57 left.  Tough 5th foul on Dearring (blocking call) with 1:53 left but Eden Prairie ends up missing the front of the bonus on it.  Kerwin Walton adds a bucket to push it to 5 and Hopkins makes 7-8 FTs to seal it.  Drake Dobbs scores the last 12 points for EP.  He finishes with 5 triples and 36 points to lead all scorers.  Connor Christensen adds 13, John Henry 11.  Zeke Nnaji with 26 points to lead Hopkins.  Jalen Dearring with 16 points before fouling out.  Kerwin Walton adds 14.  Big rebound win for Hopkins after the loss at De La Salle on Wednesday.  Eden Prairie sees a 6 game winning streak snapped.  This 7 point loss matches the combined point total of 4 of their other 5 losses.

Island Dreaming

Prologue
To De La Salle to see the #1AAA Islanders take on #1AAAA Hopkins.  With this weather, how I wish I was on a much different island at the moment.  All the Mr Basketball big wigs in attendance.  Hamline in the house as well.  Respectable hot dog and Dr. Pepper on tonight's menu.  Not the crazy atmosphere you might have expected since it is a Wednesday night (family night for those at public schools, separation of church and state).  But expect a mad house for Minnehaha in a couple of weeks.  Lou Smith one of the fine crew on duty.  We get the D Clap right before the opening tip which is rare.  That's usually reserved for a big rally.

Game Time
This one stays very tight for most of the 1st half.  Hopkins working inside with a Dane Zimmer putback and layup plus a couple of Zeke Nnaji dunks.  DLS countering with soph Cade Haskins and Jamison Battle knocking down 3s.  14-13 DLS at the 11 minute mark.  Nnaji 2 more inside hoops.  Tyrell Terry zipping the ball around as he finds Kam Givens on the run for a layup.  Then its Terry to Battle for a baseline J and Terry adds his own 3 point play.  Andy Stafford 4 points countered by a Terry hoop and the lead is 29-25 De La Salle.  Then Terry to Battle for 1 3 and then Battle bombs again.  Terry finishes the half with a late hoop.  40-30 De La Salle at the break.

Givens 2 easy buckets and a Terry assist for a triple.  That's an 18-5 run for 47-30 DLS lead with 16:20 left.  Jalen Travis cuts and Terry finds him for a 3 point play.  That's Kerwin Walton's 4th foul.  Travis adds a free throw on the next possession and that's Dearring's 4th foul with 15:33 left.  Terry for 3 and assist to Givens for a layup.  Then a turnover for a Battle triple.  61-37 De La Salle with just under 10 minutes left oh my.

But Hopkins will make it very respectable.  Nnaji high low for 2 and a drive for a dunk.  Walton dunks for a 3 point play.  Terry with a 3 point play.  Nnaji fouled with 7:29 left and that's Battle's 4th foul.  Nnaji makes the bonus freebies and from 20 down here come the Royals. Zimmer with a block and Walton will score on the other end.  Walton adds his only 3 of the night and the lead is down to 13.  Stafford for 3 and converts a turnover.  Lead down to 10 with 3:43 left.  Battle returns to stop the bleeding.

Nnaji scores with 1:26 left to keep it an 8 point game.  Then its Terry to Cade Haskins and why not from deep.  Nnaji counters that and a late bucket will get Hopkins as close as 6.  But time runs out on the rally.  De La Salle wins 75-67.

Post Game
For Hopkins, Zeke Nnaji leads the way with 26 points.  He had some struggles early in the 2nd half getting post touches and finishing the few he had.  Otherwise, he was a handful down low.  Kerwin Walton plagued by foul trouble in the 2nd half scores all 10 of his points after halftime.  Dane Zimmer 10, Jalen Dearring 9, Andy Stafford 9.  Stafford got the task of guarding Terry late but interestingly that went to Walton in the 1st half.  Nnaji had the duty chasing Jamison Battle.  Hopkins falls to 18-3 overall.  After having their last 3 at home, they now have 3 more at home starting with Eden Prairie on Friday.  Then Edina and Minnetonka next week.

De La Salle improves to 14-4 overall and 12-1 vs Minnesota opponents.  Tyrell Terry was outstanding with 23 points and 9 assists (per the Mr BB guys).  Jamison Battle added 4 3s and 16 points for the Islanders.  Kam Givens with 12 points including an important jumper late.  Another solid defensive effort against a Lake Conference opponent.  The adjustment to put Jalen Travis on Zeke Nnaji was a big one.  Travis physical enough to deal with Nnaji inside and I thought he did a good job in the defensive matchup.  Plus they took Kerwin Walton basically out of the offense and kept Jalen Dearring from becoming a driver.  The rest of the Islanders schedule is league play except for 2 big Saturday showdowns vs CDH and Minnehaha coming up starting in a week.

Upsets Averted


Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the weather inside is so delightful.  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.  OK OK OK!  That will be enough of the fluffy white stuff already, ENOUGH!  First an icy adventure to see St. Paul Washington vs St. Paul Como Park in a makeup game from last week.  Then mush Husky mush as I make the trek to see Andover at Totino-Grace.

Monday: Como Park 87 Washington 71
I can never get enough of the history on the walls at Arlington Washington.  First half story was Washington PG Zaveon Smith.  He goes for 3 straight triples.  Drew White adds a nice tip dunk and the Eagles take a 29-18 lead later in the half.  They'll hold that lead at 11, 39-28 at the half.  But the writing was on the wall.  Josh Ward started to heat up late in the 1st half.  He keeps that going in the 2nd half.  3 buckets and a free throw and Como takes a 46-45 lead.  Junior guard Tyroun Sain also very productive for Como Park in this one.  Plus quality bench minutes from Mohamed Ahmed though he did start the 2nd half.  The Cougars go spread and Washington has no answer for those 3.  Final score is a little misleading as it was a 2 point game with just over 4 minutes left.  Donzello Barros with a 4 point play and a pair of free throws in the final stretch to all Como Park to pull away.  Zaveon Smith goes for 33, most of those in the 1st half.  Josh Ward with 20 of his 28 in the 2nd half.  Tyroun Sain adds 22, Mohamed Ahmed with 16.  Como Park stays out of a tie for the cellar with Washington with the win.

Tuesday: Totino-Grace 54 Andover 45
Devin and Riley Burger with early 3s for TG.  Brandon Eldien off the bench with a stepback jumper and free throw for Andover.  DJ Akpati swipes an inbounds pass for a bucket.  12-7 TG at 11:25.  Andover counters with a 10-0 run.  An extra pass finds Nolan Belschner for 3 and junior forward Shandon Schannauer buries a triple in the run.  TG guard Eric Krieger sits with his 2nd foul at the end of the run.  Mitch Burton with great lunch pail minutes for TG all night.  Great screening and moving and hustle.  But he'll go to the slick reverse in the post too plus a cut for a bucket.  That keeps Totino-Grace within 22-20 at the break.

Then the 3 point barrage begins.  Its the Burger kids again as they each hit an early pair of bombs.  Krieger adds a high post give and follow plus a bomb of his own.  40-30 TG with under 13 to play.  Eldien driving for 2 free throws and he stop and pop for 2 more.  Andover misses 2 free throws to get closer but its Eldien from deep.  That pulls Andover within 43-42 with under 5 minutes left.

Burton steps out and buries a 3.  Then its Akpati taking the bump and then finishing to get the pseudo continuation call for a 3 point play.  Eldien makes 1 more 3 but Andover can't score and Totino-Grace closes it out with 5 of 6 free throws.  The Eagles get no scoring from the bench but 4 of 5 starters go for double figures and all finish between 9 and 12 points.  6 2nd half 3s were a huge factor.  Eric Krieger held to 2 FG but 7-8 FTs for 12 points.  Devin Burger 3 triples and 12 points as well.  Mitch Burton with 11. Brandon Eldien leads Andover with 13 of his 16 points off the bench in the 2nd half.  Shandon Schannauer adds 14.  Andover drops to 2-8 and a tie for the last spot in the NW Suburban North.  Blaine, Osseo and Champlin Park are next.  TG snaps a 5 game losing streak.  They visit Irondale before a home week with Spring Lake Park and Osseo.  Then a trip to Blaine.

A furious rally and zone disection

A couple of good ones for the weekend portion of my viewing week after the polar vortex.  First its another trip to the Metro East, this time for 1st time viewings of Hastings and Simley.  Then a ranked showdown on Saturday with #4AAA Austin visting #1AA Minnehaha Academy.

Friday: Hastings 67 Simley 64
Freshman Ruot Jioklow getting to the rim at will in the 1st half.  Hastings goes 8 and a half minutes with just 1 field goal and nothing going right on the offensive end.  That allows Simley to open up a 29-11 lead late in the 1st half.  Simley tries to kill the clock to end the half but that doesn't work out and the margin is 31-17 at the break. 

Hastings goes to some thumbs up and thumbs down trapping to start the 2nd half and that doesn't seem to help.  Cole Tschida with a 3 point play vs the press and a turnover for 2 Simley free throws pushes the lead back to 18.  45-27 Simley with 14:45 to go.  But hold the phone as that trapping does have an impact and Hastings finally starts to see the ball go in the basket.  Star forward Matt Schlottman with 2 bombs.  Post Isaac Rabaey runs the floor to post early and gets 2 free throws.  He then puts back a miss for a 3 point play.  That cuts the lead to 8 with over 9 minutes left. 

The momentum has turned and Hastings keeps it going with 2 more Schlottman 3s.  Sully Levos inside out for another Raiders 3. That pulls Hastings to within 3 and they have the ball with under 6 minutes left.  But can they get over the hump after the big comeback.  Simley goes 2-3 and its Colby Zak getting behind the zone.  He turns that into a hoop and 2 free throws. 

After 2 missed Hastings free throws, Simley misses.  Rabaey makes 2 with 1:22 left and then Levos converts a steal into a layup.  Hastings takes the lead 64-63 with 1:06 left.  Jioklow fouls out on the next possession on a charge to give Hastings the ball back under a minute left.  Hastings misses 2 freebies and Tschida makes 1 to tie it.  Then its Rabaey in the post stepping thru and fouled.  He makes 2 free throws with 15.8 left.  Simley loses the ball on their possession and Hastings dives on it and gets the time out. Rabaey makes 1 of 2 so Simley gets 1 last chance.  Hastings zones the 3/4 court inbound and turns the final pass into a turnover.  They complete the improbable comeback from 18 down inside of 15 minutes left.  They put up 50 in the 2nd half after just 17 in the 1st half.  Isaac Rabaey with 21 points to lead the Raiders including 10 of 11 FTs in the 2nd half.  Matt Schlottman with 5 3s and 19 points as well.  Ruot Jioklow leads Simley with 21 points.  The win improves Hastings to 4-5 in the Metro East to keep pace with Sibley in the middle of the pack.  Simley falls 2 games back of Sibley with the loss.

Saturday: #1AA Minnehaha 81 #4AAA Austin 61
Minnehaha would turn the ball over a ton in this one.  But while Austin's nasty 1-2-2 zone is known to do that to people, many of the turnovers were of the unforced sloppy variety.  But Jalen Suggs with a couple of 3s and distributing too.  Chet Holmgren adds a 3 during the spurt and the Minnehaha lead is 27-12 just inside of the 8 minute mark.  But Austin would hold Minnehaha to 1 FG the rest of the half.  The Packers score the 1st 2 points of the 2nd half to conclude a 19-4 run.  That ties the game at 31.

All Minnehaha after that.  Suggs off the skip pass for 3 and he finishes after a Holmgren block plus adds 2 of 3 free throws being fouled on a 3.  That's a 9-0 run in 90 seconds.  Suggs and Holmgren doing all the damage early in the 2nd half.  Suggs another bomb and steal for 2.  Holmgren goes to the reverse to keep the lead at 10.  He'll add 1 dunk plus another dunk for a 3 point play.  Then a putback dunk for another 3 point play and all of a sudden the lead is 17.  Suggs 2 3s to sandwich a 3 point plus an assist for good measure.  70-51 Minnehaha with 6:20 left.  The outcome never really in doubt after all that. 

Jalen Suggs another terrific outing with 31 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists on my officially unofficial stat sheet.  Chet Holmgren 24 points and 4 blocks.  Prince Aligbe with 15 points.  Their 3 games next week are all on the round.  That includes the rescheduled game at #10AA Caledonia on Friday night.  Medi Obang leads Austin with 18 points including 3 triples.  Fun to see the 1-2-2 zone and the back guys X-ing to take the high post along with the usual wings dropping there.  Minnehaha had plenty of success for the moments when they decided to put Suggs in the middle of it and create.  But it was something they did sparingly.
