• EDINA 66, HOPKINS 63 (OT): A stunned home crowd saw two last-second shots fall short as Class 4A, No. 2 Hopkins suffered its first loss to Edina in 23 years. Jake Wright's deep threat helped him rack up 22 points for the Royals in the overtime loss. Hopkins had a chance to win the game at the end of regulation and a shot to tie the score at the end of the overtime period, but both attempts missed. Edina, which suddenly finds itself in the driver's seat in the Lake Conference with a 3-1 record, was led by Graham Woodward's 24 points.
• EASTVIEW 54, PRIOR LAKE 51: Eastview defended its home court, relying on a steady hand from the free-throw line for the upset over Prior Lake. The Lightning, which went 11-for-12 from the stripe, were led by senior forward Ben Oberfeld's 20 points. Jon Sobaski scored 17 for the Lakers, who dropped to 9-4 in the South Suburban Conference.
• HILL-MURRAY 78, TOTINO-GRACE 76: Ryan Buron knows how to perform under pressure. The senior Hill-Murray guard nailed both ends of a one-and-one to give his Pioneers the lead with just seven seconds on the clock. Jake Christensen scored 26 for Hill-Murray. Seth Sullwold led Totino-Grace with 26 points.
• LAKEVIEW CHRISTIAN 112, DEER RIVER 107: The Broman brothers combined for more than three-quarters of Lakeview's points Tuesday in the Lions' home victory over Deer River. Anders racked up 58 points and younger-brother Bjorn tallied 30, including two clutch free throws late in the close game. Noah Kaczor led Deer River with 54 points. Henry Hellmann added 36 for the Warriors.
• TARTAN 67, HENRY SIBLEY 64: Tartan went 11-for-13 from the free-throw line and escaped Henry Sibley with a victory, cementing its place atop the Classic Suburban Conference. Five players scored in double figures for Tartan, which managed to survive a second-half rally from the Warriors and a 23-point performance from Adam Heussner.
• MARANATHA 78, PACT 42: Maranatha clinced the MCAA Conference with a decisive victory over PACT. The Mustangs, who finished the season with a 12-0 record in MCAA play, were led by Isaiah Hanson's 15 points. Drew Zieroth tallied 17 for PACT.
