Loboes Hold Off Maple Valley Boys

December 4, 2012

As the LaMoure/Litchville-Marion boys basketball team worked its offense in the first half of Monday's 56-54 win over Maple Valley, the final result seemed relatively simple.
Pass the ball, set a few picks, wait for a defender to fall off his cover, then take advantage of the hole with a quick cut into the lane for a layup.
"That happens when the offense is moving like its supposed to be," LLM coach Darren Thielges said. "The first half, we were fresh, so we were making good cuts."

December 3, 2012

FARGO — As the North Dakota State and South Dakota State University football teams took the field for their NCAA FBS second round playoff game Saturday, all expectations were a close one.
Interstate rivalry? Check. Pockets of the stadium lined with loud crowds from either school? Check. When the teams met up just a few weeks ago at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome, the game was decided by a field goal.
But in the rematch, the visiting Jackrabbits seemed to left their lucky foot, or feet, at home.
