Boys back in 1A tourney field
A dominant second half proved to be the difference, as the Bishop Garrigan Golden Bears boys basketball squad earned a trip to the Class 1A state tournament for the seond straight year with a 68-48 victory over the South O'Brien Wolverines on Feb. 29 in Spencer. It was a battle of top-five-rated teams.
The black and gold built a 12-point lead in the third quarter, only to see the third-ranked Wolvrines slice the lead to 43-42 one minute into the final period. But, the fourth-rated Golden Bears outscored them 25-6 to finish the contest.
