Both teams started the game well with Ada-Borup attacking the Climax Fisher zone defense with an inside-outside attack, while Climax Fisher was able to fast break off of missed shots for layups the other way leading to a close game midway through the first half. Thats when the Cougars got back in transition defense and kept attacking the Knight's zone on offense to spark a 15-0 run and an eventual 24 point first half lead that they never looked back from. With the win Ada-Borup advances to play Stephan-Argyle in the Quarterfinal round of section 8A West at NCTC on Thirsday night. Climax Fisher ends their season 1-24 and graduates five seniors.

Section 8A West Play-In – #7 Sacred Heart over #10 Norman County West 71-52

Sacred Heart came out firing -- literally -- knocking down nine of eleven three point attempts in the first half alone and taking a commanding lead into halftime 41-16. The hot shooting tapered down in the second half with help from the Norman County West defense forcing the Eagles into tougher situation offensively and becoming more aggressive on the boards and capitalizing on turnovers. Trailing by 33 early in the second half, the Panthers were able to cut the deficit to fifteen with just over four minutes to play. Too little too late for the Panthers as along with the rise of offense, constant stops on each possession would would needed defensively, which wasn't the case. Sacred Heart was able to get to the basket by attacking and getting the Panther defense off balance, resulting in not only better shots, but opportunities at the free throw line.

Sacred Heart shot 8-22 from the line, had 32 rebounds, 12 steals and 12 turnovers
