An article and headline in Wednesday's edition of the Times-Record incorrectly stated that the Maple Valley boys basketball team is trying to win their third straight Barnes County Tournament title, when the team is trying to win its fourth.
Maple Valley won the tournament twice in 2010, when the boys and girls tournaments switched months, and also won in 2011.

After losing its first game of the year to Wahpeton Friday, the Valley City High School boys basketball team was determined to come out strong in the opening game of the Barnes County Tournament Tuesday at W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse.
The Vikings did just that, beating Griggs County Central 66-40 in the opening game of the tournament.
For the Maple Valley High School boys basketball team, the 2012 Barnes County Tournament isnâ€™t just about winning a title as much. Rather, the Raiders are defending a legacy after winning the championship the last two years.
Tuesday at Osmon Fieldhouse the Raiders had a successful start to the 2012 tournament, beating Finley-Sharon/Hope-Page 65-36 in the tournamentâ€™s opening contest.
â€śWe want to be back in that championship game on Saturday night, and thatâ€™s what we talked about,â€ť Maple Valley coach Jay Kocka said. â€śStep one is complete, step two will be Thursday.â€ť
