The Knights’ boys’ basketball season came to an end in the Sub-Section 6A semi-finals at UMM last Saturday afternoon when they were edged out of the playoffs in overtime by the Wheaton/Herman-Norcross Warriors, 59-52. Earlier in the week, the Knights had wrapped up their regular season with a loss, 95-59, to #6 state-ranked Upsala on Monday, but then got their playoffs off to a great start on Thursday night with a big win, 83-64, at home over Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley.
The Knights ended their season with an 18-8 record. Wheaton, seeded number two, moves to 22-3 and will take on top-seeded and undefeated Battle Lake for the South Championship on Tuesday at Morris.
The North Championship will also be a battle of number one and number two seeds when Hillcrest Lutheran Academy takes on Park Christian High School. The winners of the two sub-section championship games will meet at Concordia College in Moorhead on Friday, March 7, to decide the champion of section 6A.
Dakotah Kashmark broke the WCA Knights’ boys’ career scoring record in the Upsala game. Kashmark has scored 1,266 points in his career eclipsing the record of Blake Olson, who had 1,264 which was set in 2006.
