morris mn - We're a community on the grand, seemingly endless prairie of the Upper Midwest. Empty, you might say? It's the epitome of richness, both in the overall environment and the hardy souls who populate. Morris is home to the University of Minnesota-Morris, a small public liberal arts college of distinction.

MACA boys succumb to Vraa, New London-Spicer
Jordan Arbach passes the ball in the 12/14 home game.
NL-Spicer 68, Tigers 50
This season of learning and developing for the MACA boys had another bump
in the road Tuesday (12/17). The site was New London. There, the Tigers got
schooled by Ryan Vraa and his New London-Spicer mates.
Vraa was precise shooting from beyond the three-point stripe. He made six
of eight 3-point shots as New London-Spicer worked to a 68-50 win. MACA is still
in search of win No. 1. The Wildcats came out of Tuesday at 4-0.

Vraa poured in 24 points total. Shane Zylstra contributed 18 for the
winner. Adam Essler and Brett Olson each made a '3' to complement Vraa's six
long-rangers. Olson snared nine rebounds. Vraa led NL-Spicer in assists with
five and in steals with five. Tyson Gislason and Zylstra each blocked two shots.
The Tigers were still in the game at halftime, down 33-27.
Eric Staebler showed lots of offensive punch for coach Mark Torgerson's
Tigers. Eric made two 3-pointers and finished with a hefty harvest of points:
27. He was the lone double figures scorer for Morris Area Chokio Alberta. The
Tigers made 20 of 44 shots from the field and were three of ten in 3's.
C.J. Nagel popped one 3-point shot. In freethrows the Tigers were seven of
ten. Staebler led in rebounds with eight followed by Nagel with seven. Noah
Grove dished out three assists, and Andrew Goulet had three steals.
The game began with NL-Spicer looking as though they might bury the Tigers.
The score at one point was 20-6. But the margin got shaved down for halftime,
before NL-Spicer showed another burst. NL-Spicer outscored the Tigers 35-23 in
the second half, and never led by less than double figures in the second half.
Staebler's 27 points on the scoring list was followed by Grove with seven,
Nagel with six, Bryce Jergenson and Goulet with four each, and Jordan Arbach
The Tigers are done with the pre-Christmas part of the schedule. They'll
resume play two days after Santa visits, on Dec. 27, when they'll vie in the
two-day St. John's Invitational.
