Native Sun News Today: Three reservation teams head to basketball finals in South Dakota

WINNER—Bad weather forced last Tuesday’s Round of 16 Class A play-off games to Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday, Crow Creek hung on against Parker at the Mitchell Corn Palace, 53-50, to advance to the Class A Boys Tournament, March 15-18, at Rapid City. They will play Tea Area in the 1:45 pm game. Pine Ridge came from behind to defeat Dell Rapids, 69-66, and Red Cloud romped over Miller, 79-55, both games held at the Winner Armory last Thursday, and both teams also advanced to the State A in Rapid City.

Before the Round of 16, Pine Ridge and Red Cloud would have had to bump the other off in order to get out of Region 7A, but the new format has made it possible for three of the eight teams at state to be from a reservation.
