Kindred (15-3) @ Enderlin (16-3)

In this heavyweight Region-1 matchup the Vikings and Eagles are playing for the #1 seed heading into the playoffs. Win or lose these two teams could potentially see each other in the Region Championship game in a couple of weeks. Enderlin is ranked #3 in this week’s Power Rankings. Coming into the game Kindred scores 60.7 ppg and they give up 41.9 ppg. The Eagles put up 71 ppg and allow 52.5. Both squads are long and athletic and they match-up well with each other. Enderlin shoots it better from the perimeter. Kindred is patient on offense and will be as methodical as they can be within the shot clock. The top Eagles are Joe Hurlburt Joe Hurlburt 6'9" | PF Enderlin | 2022 State #152 Nation ND , Gus Hurlburt Gus Hurlburt 6'7" | PF Enderlin | 2022 State ND , Carson Bartholomay Carson Bartholomay 6'6" | PF Enderlin | 2023 State ND , and Alijah Dixson Alijah Dixson 5'11" | PG Enderlin | 2022 State ND . The top Vikings are Gavin Keller Gavin Keller 6'9" | PF Kindred | 2021 State ND , Paul Olson Paul Olson 6'3" | SF Kindred | 2022 State ND , Max McQuillan Max McQuillan 6'5" | SG Kindred | 2022 State ND , and Jaiden Peraza Jaiden Peraza 6'5" | SF Kindred | 2022 State ND . It should be an even matchup on the boards. Whoever dictates the pace and takes care of the ball should win this one.

Grafton/St. Thomas (18-2) @ Thompson
