The State Tournaments came to a close this weekend with some thrilling games. Teams left blood, sweat and tears on the floor as they attempted to chase a coveted trophy and go home with glory as: State Champs. Let’s look at how some of the games unfolded. 

Marsh Valley wins first State Title since 1988

 The Eagles beat McCall-Donnelly 58-51 for the state title Saturday, the school’s first boys basketball championship since 1988 in 3A Championship.

Cody Hansen Cody Hansen 6'2" | SG Marsh Valley | 2021 State ID (14 points) and Bracken Howell Bracken Howell 6'1" | SG Marsh Valley | 2021 State ID (12) led Marsh Valley, which shot 41.3% from the floor and 15-for-17 from the free-throw line.

Marsh Valley put a damper in McCall Donnelly’s chances by being lights out from the floor. They went 6-of-8 from the floor and converted 8-of-9 free throws to maintain a lead throughout the fourth quarter. Neither team had much of a lead during a tight back-and-forth battle.

McCall-Donnelly’s DJ Green, who routinely muscled his way into the lane for a game-high 21 points, brought the Vandals within 44-43 in the fourth but that was the closest the squad got. It was still an outstanding year for McCall-Donnelly who did not even play a game until Jan 15
