I was not yet around but have talked to someone that played at that time. He told me that because of the blizzard the district tournaments were all backed up. His team ended up playing the final two rounds of the district and two regional games on four successive nights. There was at least one region final that wasn't played until the Monday before the state tournament began.

Fort Yates was in its first year of Class A play that year after moving up from B. Three Fort Yates coaches went to Mandan to scout the first round games of the SW Region tournament. They got caught in the blizzard on the way home about half way between Mandan and Fort Yates. To stay warm they ripped out the back seat of the car and created a fire pit to burn whatever they could find. A state snowplow rescued them in the middle of the night. A couple of nights later they had their team back in Mandan playing at the tournament.

1. A lawsuit was filed over the controversial ending of a region semifinal game.

2. One player outscored the opponent- by himself- in a region championship game.

3. A team was shut out in the 4th quarter of a region championship game and went on to lose the game in overtime.


It's been a week so here are the answers:

1. Fort Yates filed a lawsuit after losing after losing to Center 59-58 in 3OT. Fort Yates had scored to take a one point lead with 1 second remaining on the clock. Center threw a pass the length of the court where Roland Jacobs caught the pass, apparently took a dribble and then made the shot. With the noise in the gym the officials claimed they couldn't hear the buzzer, so the conferred with the scorekeeper who said the shot was before the buzzer. Fort Yates filed the lawsuit against the NDHSAA asking for the result of the game to be reversed. The lawsuit was dropped after meeting with the NDHSAA the following week.

2. Hillsboro's Kyle Meyer scored 25 points in a 54-24 win over Thompson in the Region 2 title game.

3. Wilton led Westhope 32-24 going into the 4th quarter of the Region 6 title game. However, Westhope outscored Wilton 8-0 in the final period to tie the game and went on to win 38-36 in OT.

Roland and Kyle were both '81 grads. So those games had to be '80 or '81. Guessing Jeff Cooper was Westhope's main man, also '81 grad. Going with 1981.

I have a good trivia question.

Mayville-Portland were the class B state Champions in 1987.

Who were the three teams they beat to become state champions?

In 1987, Mayville-Portland (Region 2) beat Glen Ullin (Region Eight), Page (Region 1) and Linton (Region 5) in the state tournament. Glen Ullin and Page were unbeaten before playing Mayville-Portland. Let’s see if I can remember the scores. Defeated Glen Ullin, 54-52, on Ben Jacobson’s last-second shot; beat Page, 77-73; and beat Linton, 72-61. Page had Brian Buhr (sp.) and I believe he scored 100 points in that State tournament. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but weren’t Mayville-Portland, Glen Ullin and Page ranked 1-2-3 coming in? Other teams in the tournament were Divide County (Region 7), Starkweather (Region 3), Dunseith (Region 6) and Leeds (Region 4).

I know Dunseith was undefeated that season so probably ranked high as well. Leeds upset them in the first round and then lost to Linton and Page.

The most consecutive weeks at number one:

Linton - 19 weeks: 12-29-2008 through 2-15-2010
Four Winds-Minnewaukan - 18 weeks: 1-11-2016 through 2-20-2017
New Rockford-Sheyenne - 18 weeks: 12-15-2003 through 1-24-2005

Glen Ullin was ranked number one all year in 85-86 and 86-86 but than only included 14 weekly polls because the first poll wasn't released until January those year.

I though MPCG would have been up there in either 96 and 97 or the 02 and 03 seasons.

This is a great read! I could only imagine a trap door at half-court to run out of!

Love the refs wearing overalls and the homer calls. Completely different time back then.

How good was Brian Buhr of Page, ND? I have heard stories about him, what do you all know about his ability. Is there footage out there of him playing?

Brian was a very good player. Quick first step. Quick release. Good elevation on his jump shots. Good range. Good hops, for his size probably had as many dunks as anybody I can remember. Very "confident" player, floor leader. Had a great state tournament and believe he had a monster dunk in one of the games. Brother was very good as well.

Who was the last team to win a State Championship playing almost all zone defense? I know North Star has played some zone recently but do not remember how much they played when they won it.

MPCG in 1997 I thought played a lot of zone.

Name a team that had 3 of their 5 starters, with over 300 points each, and 2 of those 3 with each over 200 rebounds for the season.........

I would assume the 3 players over 300 points each isn't terribly uncommon. 2 players averaging over 8 rebounds a game would probably be less common.

2 players with each over 400 points would be more common than 3 with 300 I would say....it isn't a contest though....its "class B trivia"
