Sophomore scores 29 points to lead his undefeated team past SW Minnesota Christian

Three Stars

1. Brian Goodwin, Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa

The Jaguars' star put his team on his back scoring 29 points on 10-17 shooting, helping the Jaguars create separation from the Eagles in the second half. His ability to get to the hole was the difference in the game as the Eagles had no answer for his drives in the second half. He was an All-Tournament selection and was undoubtedly the most valuable player in the tournament.

2. Zach Huisken, Southwest Minnesota Christian

The All-Tournament Selection big-man did all he could for the Eagles as he put together an extremely impressive stat line of 17 points on 7-12 shooting and 16 rebounds. Huisken single-handedly won the rebounding battle in the game, a key factor which kept the game close throughout.

3. Connor Goodwin, Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa

The big man didn't have his best performance, but he was certainly a factor the Eagles had to deal with inside. The senior gutted out 8 points and 10 rebounds to help complete the Jags' undefeated season and capture the 1A State Championship. Goodwin was an All-Tournament selection.
