Top Snipers in the ND Class B State Tournament


Posted On: 03/16/18 9:28 AM

The North Dakota Class B boys state tournament is underway at the Bismarck Event Center in Bismarck, N.D. The quarterfinals action took place Thursday with the semifinals to follow. We take a look at the Top 5 shooters at the tournament in no particular order.

Jacob Weigel | G, 6-3 | Beulah

One of the tournament’s best spot up shooters from deep is Jacob Weigel. The senior guard is always looking to find a hole in the defense on the outside so that his teammates can find him. Weigel finished 3 of 6 from 3-point land in Beulah’s 55-50 loss to Hillsboro-Central Valley.

Wyatt Hanson | F, 6-4 | Stanley

For a big man, Wyatt Hanson has the green light from anywhere on the court. The senior forward takes a lot of shots but he’s one of Class B’s best shooters. He took 25 shots Thursday against Carrington. Even though he was 0 for 3 from deep, Hanson made 12 of 25 from the field. If you fall for Hanson’s pump fake, he’ll fly to the rim and if you have your hands down, he’ll shot right over the top of you.

Ben Bohl | G, 6-2 | Bishop Ryan

The junior guard is great at creating his own shot whether it’s a 17 footer or a 3-pointer from the wing. Ben Bohl has smooth handles but what’s more impressive is his shot out of a few dribble moves. Bohl finished 2 for 4 from deep and scored a game-high 18 points in Bishop Ryan’s 60-53 quarterfinal win over Shiloh Christian.

Carson Henningsgard | G 6-2 | Hillsboro-Central Valley

Carson Henningsgard is one of North Dakota Class B’s best underclassmen and makes a case for the best guard in the state. He shoots 85 percent at the free throw line and can beat you inside and out. He likes to take most of his 3-pointers off screens but can knock any shot down on the floor. Henningsgard finished 3 of 7 in H-CV’s 55-50 win over Beulah and averages 40 percent from beyond the arc this season.

Trey Brunelle | G 5-11 | Shiloh Christian

The sophomore guard didn’t have the best game from beyond the 3-point line as he finished just 2 for 7 against Bishop Ryan in Shiloh Christian’s quarterfinal game but the dude can shoot. Teams don’t want to see Trey Brunelle get confident from deep. Most of Brunelle’s shots will come from beyond the arc and he doesn’t need much space to pull up from deep.
