Top-ranked Trojans get second crack at title in as many years
MINNEAPOLIS – Rushford-Peterson High School’s boys basketball team is a win away from giving Tom Vix a Minnesota state championship for each decade he’s coached the team.
In the Class 1A quarterfinals, the Trojans shot the lights out. Friday, in the semifinals, it was the defense that took center stage.
MENOMONIE, Wis. – For a half, the Onalaska High School boys basketball team stuck with Rice Lake.
But in the end, 6-foot-10 Henry Ellenson and fifth-ranked Warriors were simply too much.
MENOMONIE, Wis. – It took two overtimes for the Onalaska High School boys basketball team to upset top-seeded Holmen in the playoffs last week.
That game may look easy now, compared to what the Hilltoppers (16-8) are up against tonight.
Rushford-Peterson High School coach Tom Vix has seen just about everything when it comes to basketball, especially Minnesota state basketball.
Whether that’s from one of the hall of fame coach’s 15 teams he has brought to state or from the rest of the field.
Warriors exact revenge, head to state semifinals
MINNEAPOLIS – Jason Burg never dunked before. Not in a varsity game, anyway.

ST PAUL - Last weekend, the University of Wisconsin clinched a share of the Big Ten title on senior night at the Kohl Center.
Thursday, the sixth-ranked Badgers claimed it outright with a 76-63 win over Minnesota at Williams Arena.
