The North Dakota Class A State Tournament tips off Thursday.

Here are the matchups for the first round:

Game 1: Fargo Davies vs. Bismarck Legacy

Fargo Davies started the year as the No. 1 team in the state and with state title aspirations. The Eagles’ team goals were to win the EDC regular season title, the EDC Conference Tournament title and a state title. Two of those three have been checked off and the third is still a realistic goal.

Braeton Motschenbacher is one of the best guards in the state. Cole Hage, Cam VanDam and Jaden Klabo all average double figures in scoring and control the paint on both ends of the floor. Harrison Thom, Ty Slatter, Justice Noel and Grayson Haman can all provide shooting and defense.

Legacy has been tested throughout the year and while the Sabers haven’t scored consistently throughout the year, they are playing well as of late. Rhett Clements is a consistent frontcourt player who can compete inside and Nick Kupfer is an explosive guard who can pop off for 20-pls on any given night.
