Barnes County Tournament: Maple Valley gets second half win over Enderlin, Northern Cass advances

January 12, 2012

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.

Barnes County Tournament: Valley City beats LMM, BCN advances over Griggs

January 12, 2012

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 she’s not the type to take credit for it.
