Who were the top performers from Tuesday Night Basketball in Minnesota? We run you through the elite of elite performances now!
The BOLD schedule as of late has been as tough as anyones. They beat Morris Area by a score, lost to Minnewaska Area, beat Springfield by a basket, and then defeated Redwood Valley 93-89 last night. Senior Jordan Sagedahl had one of his best games of the season scoring 34 while Gavin Vosika scored 23 points, dished out 11 assists, and grabbed seven boards. BOLD is now 21-1 and is the top ranked team in Class A basketball. Sagedahl is a top baseball prospect in addition to his ability on the hardwood.
The South St Paul Packers are 14-8 on the season and sophomore Alonzo Dodd is playing at a Sophomore All State, Class AAA All State level right now. Dodd recorded 35 points, nine boards, and six assists and the Packers needed every bit of that to hold off Hill-Murray 73-69. Take out recruit status, take out highlight clips, and look only at production, few sophomores have been as productive as Dodd this season.
Rochester Mayo knocked off Northfield for the second time this year only last night the game was closer (85-75) than the previous blowout (85-53). Cincinnati committed Mr Basketball top ten member Gabe Madsen scored 43 points and grabbed 15 boards boosting up his 30 & 10 regular season numbers on average.
Stewartville picked up a nice win over Byron 54-52 and the numbers of Will Tschetter were as expected, massive. It’s become normal seeing Will surpass double-double numbers with ease but in a low scoring tight game, Will scored 35 points with 16 boards. Will is certainly a candidate for Class AA player of the year going at Nathan Heise and Owen King in a great race.
Right now I would consider the leaders for the Mr. Basketball final five to be Jalen Suggs, Dawson Garcia, Kerwin Walton, Dain Dainja, and Ben Carlson but if one of them doesn’t make it the man taking their place could be Nathan Heise of Lake City. The Tigers dropped a game to Waseca last night but Heise brought everything he could scoring 39 points hitting on four threes. Add in seven boards and it was a big time game. Will Nathan Heise have the same career as Nathan Wolters? Tough to say but when you watch Heise plays that’s the comparison.
Drake Dobbs and Kerwin Walton went back and forth all night long before the Eagles won 81-75. Walton scored 38 points exploding for a quick 19 while Dobbs was relentless in his creation for his own baskets and the assists for others. Dobbs had 32 points and the win while Walton was the top scorer in the game. Two Mr. Basketball top ten names.
Plainview/Elgin-Millville improved to 16-6 on the year led by junior point guard Blake Herber‘s 24 points in an eight point win over Dover-Eyota. Herber recorded a double-double of 24 points and 11 boards while also handling the handling and creation duties. Last night was also special for Blake as he went over 1,000 points for his career.
