What a title game! Class B+ vs the best transfer in history.

I'll take the Hi-Liner-Cubs by 7.

Isn't it just a little small to bring this up now? There have been a number of more questionable transfer situations that have occurred more recently and you say nothing. As has been stated, the entire Kvilvang family moved back to Cando (where Mrs Kvilvang is from) for family reasons. The fact that Macey is one of the best Class B girls players of all time is really irrelevant. I'm sorry that the Hi Liners never benefitted from her abilities. Your bigger than this bud.

Macey has gone to North Star since 8th grade. She lives in Cando (where her mom grew up) with her whole family. There is no transfer situation. She moved. End of story.
Should we do a census to find out where all the Kindred players live? Bet it's not Kindred.

That is one for Heimer to figure out. Kindred has 735 residents of the city and about 400 kids in the school system HMMM.

There's a lot of truth in this statement.

No judgment on families moving from this guy. I'm simply illustrating how the storylines for this title game were constructed.

The Class "B" way is to latch on to any feel-good story and ignore the details. We did it with Linton-Bottineau. We did it with Napoleon-Steele-Lamoure wresting,

When a player leaves his school in Fargo in eighth grade to go Catholic school, and one day becomes a Deacon, we call it recruiting. We do the same for all of the private schools around the state. Families make that decision for family reasons also. But that's dirty.

This was clean, I guess. And we haven't even talked about Kindred yet.

If you think the move had nothing to do with sports, think again.

And the Heimer way is to "egg" class B at every opportunity. One school had its turn on Thursday, North Star on Friday, and Kindred is apparently up next.

As evidenced by the thousands of empty seats at the Alerus Center, this tournament just isn't a big draw. No one is trying to write the next "Hoosiers" sequel based on North Dakota class B girls basketball this year, Heimer. You are attacking a narrative that does not exist. And no one is going to be trolling the class A message boards next week to try to rain on their parade. Why do you burn so many calories on this stuff?

That is one for Heimer to figure out. Kindred has 735 residents of the city and about 400 kids in the school system HMMM.


The Kindred School district has a weird shape, being fairly narrow and long. It includes the communities of Hickson/Oxbow, Kindred, Davenport, Walcott, and Leonard. The total population of these communities is over 1700, and the rural population is fairly dense around these communities. Davenport, Walcott, and Leonard were absorbed into the Kindred school district over the past 30 years. So having 400 kids in the school isn't a stretch.

As for the varsity girls team. There are 5 seniors, 5 juniors, 2 sophomores, and 1 seventh grader. All 13 attended elementary school in Kindred, at least 11 of them have been in the district since Kindergarten, more than half of them are second generation or older families from Kindred district, most others are from rural areas in SE ND and about half are from working farm families.

Kindred is both a farming and Fargo bedroom community, but this team is all Kindred district, not a bunch of Fargo area transfers looking for playing time. Please note, this has nothing to do with North Star and no comparisons are implied. Just clarifying where this team came from.

Admittedly, Kindred athletics have many advantages compared to more rural ND districts. Access to camps, academies, sports medicine, and a higher level of competition for younger players certainly helps the varsity teams.

How about some insight on how the refs aren't calling all the pushing done against Kvilvang. She's getting manhandled down low, and almost none of it is getting called. This isn't the Shaquille O'Neal and the NBA. No other center would have to put up with that. Just because a player would totally dominate a cleanly-played game is no reason to throw out the rule book to 'make things even'. Imagine if they looked at Morgan Olson and said 'you are so good on 3-pointers, we're going to let the defense hack you on the arms when you shoot so the other team has a better chance of winning'.

Tournament has been poorly officiated. Very physical play all the way around.

Two questions:

is there a link to the official stats for each game?

How many points did M Olson average/game, and what was her season 3-pt%

Thanks for the advice. Sorry, I have work to do.

Bought eggs this morning. French toast tonight for dinner. Hope that doesn't wreck anyone's night of fun.

This is no Linton-Bottineau scenario. Enjoy the EDC games today.
