63-year wait for tourney ends in 3 OT for Canby; DeLaSalle rolls


Another outstanding day of basketball is taking shape at Williams Arena and Target Center as the second day of the 2014 State Boys' Basketball Tournament unfolds.

Class 1A

The game of the day, and probably the tournament, belonged to Fon du Lac Ojibwe and Canby. It took triple-overtime, but Fon du Lac Ojibwe was able to outlast the Lancers, 85-82 at Williams Arena.

The story of the Canby Lancers is quite incredible. The trip to state was the school's first since 1951, the Marshall Independent reports. The players kept their focus throughout the season by playing with a purpose, playing for head coach Jon Hanson's son, Jake, who lost his life to cancer at the young age of 33 last year.

“Somebody went with the motto of ‘Jake against cancer.’ He didn’t give up, and we weren’t going to give up either,” Canby senior captain Michael Slaba told CBS Minnesota. "And when you do that magical things can happen.”

Ojibwe, owners of the most potent offense in the state at 91.9 points per game, advance to play top-seeded Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa. BBE got 35 points from Mr. Basketball finalist Brian Goodwin in an 85-50 rout over Park Christian.

Class 3A

DeLaSalle is one win shy of a third straight Class 3A state championship. The Islanders pounded Orono, 67-51 at Target Center. Stanford-bound senior forward Reid Travis led the way with 27 points and 12 rebounds. DeLaSalle will play the winner of the other semifinal game between Austin and Holy Family Catholic.
