I see what you are saying, which is why I included my caveat. There are several other instances of this as well, like Hatton-Northwood.

New trivia questions:

This man coached three different Class B teams to state tournament appearances in the 60's and 70's. Who is he?

1976 LaMoure is widely regarded as one of the top teams in Class B history. However, LaMoure was not the top-ranked team coming into the state tournament that year (the Loboes were ranked 2nd). Who was #1 team in the final poll?

Hatton's Jim Howson won almost 600 games in his coaching career but never appeared in a state tournament. His team played in three region championship games but lost to the same school each time. Who was that team?

I would guess Jerry Meyer for the coach, even though I don't think that is correct.

My guess for the number one team in the final poll would be New Town. If I get a second guess it would be Napoleon, which was unbeaten going into the region.

Third question answer is Hillsboro. No doubt in my mind.

Q1: before my time so I'm not sure

Q2: This is before my time...but I do know Lakota & New Town were both undefeated that year...I'm going to say New Town was #1 and that's who they defeated in the Title...I feel this is a bit of a trick question.

Q3: Most likely Ed Beyer and Hillsboro.

2. Lakota, although LaMoure had one more first place vote.

This is correct. Lakota was 26-0 going into the state tournament that season. This was Lakota's second straight trip to state, but from two different regions. They won Region 4 in '75 and Region 2 in '76.

Q1: before my time so I'm not sure

Q2: This is before my time...but I do know Lakota & New Town were both undefeated that year...I'm going to say New Town was #1 and that's who they defeated in the Title...I feel this is a bit of a trick question.

Q3: Most likely Ed Beyer and Hillsboro.


The answer to Q1 is Bill Fruhwirth. He led Parshall to state in '65 and '66, Fessenden in '72 and Larimore in '75, '78 and '79. He also led Flaxton to the state C tournament in '63. He only coached for 20 years but had seven state appearances at four different schools which is quite impressive.

The answer to Q3 ties in with Q1. Fruhwirth's Larimore teams defeated Hatton in the Region 2 title game 46-45 in '75, 31-24 in '78 and 42-33 in '79.

New question:

Class B has had it's own all-state team since the 1976-77 season (before that there was one team for both A & B). Since '77 there has been one instance when a team had two players named first team all-state but did not win the state championship. Can you name the team, players and year?

Trick question? It's happened twice.

You are correct. I had in my mind that Korsgarden was second team in '79 but after double checking both he and Shide were on the first team.

The founder of the Enchanted Highway (Gary Greff) was also a basketball coach at one time. What teams did he coach and did he ever make it to the state tournament?

Buffalo is also a part of Maple Valley. Buffalo and Tower City consolidated in 75-76 school year. They were known as the Buffalo-Tower City Bombers for 1 year, then Maple Valley Raiders after that. Fingal joined in 79-80. Not exactly sure the year Oriska joined. All 4 schools had either been in consolidated tourney or class C tourney, but none in the B as far as I know.

I have read a few pieces on G. G. and I recall that he mentioned coming home to Regent with his dream of Drawing people down the road off I-94 with his sculptures...... "Enchanted Highway"

he mentioned teaching at various places ND, SD, MT
and JV basketball coach for Dickinson St

If my memory serves me correctly. He coached with Mr. Beyer in Hillsboro and then went on to become the Head Coach in Lakota. I think they went to state during his tenure.

Congratulations to Hillsboro/Central Valley on their second straight State Boys Basketball title. Sixth overall for Hillsboro, and third overall for Central Valley. Second time the Burros won back-to-back (1973-74). Great tournament.
Hillsboro/Central Valley won its three State tournament games by a combined 10 points. Is that the lowest combined margin of victory for a State Champion in the tournament? I don’t know the answer, but I am sure someone else does.

I watched my first State Tournament in 1978, and can't recall any team winning its 3 games combined by 10 points or less since then, so if it has happened, it was before 1978. The lowest I can remember is Linton in 1985. They beat Ellendale by 5 (57-52), Karlsruhe by 5 (63-58) and Newburg by 2 (72-70 in ot) for a total of 12.

10 points in three games is the lowest, even when you go back to the 30's and 40's when the games were low scoring. In addition to Linton in 1985, Wyndmere in 1971 and Oak Grove in 1969 all won their three tournament games by a combined 12 points.

Duane Schwab was the head coach at Lakota in '75 and '76 when they went to state.

What all-state player transferred to Lakota prior to the '76 season?

Another team was ranked first in the state prior to Lakota, but lost in the first round of the district tournament for its only loss of the season. Can you name the team?

I would guess Napoleon, but their only loss was to Robinson in the first round of the Region 5 Tournament.
