The Valley City State University womens basketball team had a slower start than coach Jill DeVries would have liked.
In the first ten minutes of Sunday's 74-65 home win over Johnson and Wales (Colo.) University, the Vikings only hit two shots from the floor, despite leading 10-9.
But, DeVries said, the intentions were good.
The Valley City State University mens basketball team didn't have the best looking win Sunday against Johnson and Wales (Colo.) University.
After leading the game by 17 points at halftime, the Vikings were outscored 30-17 in the second half, primarily because of cold shooting.
The Vikings still finished ahead with a 57-47 score and VCSU coach Jeff Kaminsky was pleased nonetheless. It was the team's second win in as many days.
The Barnes County North girls basketball may have lost 61-41 to Northern Cass in the third place game of the Barnes County Tournament, but coach Randy Hooey felt looks could be deceiving.
"This was not a 20 point game, at all," he said. "It was a lot better game than that."
Early, the Bison held their own and even had an 11-2 lead midway through the first quarter.
The rest of the half, the two teams went back and forth, with Northern Cass going on a run and BCN catching up. In the final two minutes, BCN's Calby Hanson had five points to narrow the Jaguars' lead to 28-25 by halftime.
There are some losses that just donâ€™t sit well with a team.
For the Maple Valley girls, it was their lone loss of the year, 63-57 in overtime at home against Valley City Jan. 3.
â€śWeâ€™d been been thinking (about it),â€ť said Maple Valley eighth grader Rylee Nudell. â€śWe wanted a rematch ever since we played them last time.â€ť
Saturday at the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, the Raiders got their rematch with Hi-Liners and made sure the sequel turned out differently. This time, Maple Valley got the 52-46 win and took home the Barnes County Tournament championship.

Despite leading by only two points at halftime of Tuesday's 52-33 win over Enderlin in the first round of the Barnes County Tournament, Maple Valley coach Jeff Miller knew his team was on the verge of opening the game up.
It was just a matter of getting the knockout blow, so to speak.
"There were a couple of times in the second quarter where you could feel they were kind of on the ropes," Miller said. "We had a five or six point lead and then we'd turn the ball over a couple of times and they'd be right back in it.
Valley City High School senior Allyson Suhr opened the Barnes County Tournament with the type of game that any post player would love to have.
With a few inches of height over the Litchville-Marion Montpelier girls, Suhr was able to consistently low into the post for open shots and grabbed rebounds with ease.
In the 59-26 win over the Rebels, Suhr finished with 26 points, as many as the opposing squad. But sheâ€™s not the type to take credit for it.
