Lukus Manska puts on 3-point shooting clinic in win

Boys hoops: Tigers 65, Benson 49
MACA shot out to a 35-21 halftime lead and ended up defeating Benson 65-49 Friday at Benson. We cruised through the second half. Lukus Manska was a cog with 20 points scored. (The Willmar paper spelled his name "Kukas.") Jacob Zosel contributed ten points to the winning effort. The list continues with Jaret Johnson (9), Tim Travis (8), Camden Arndt (7), Kyle Staebler (5), Tate Nelson (3), Denner Dougherty (2) and Connor Koebernick (1).
Manska was dead-on in three-point shooting, connecting six times from beyond the arc. These Tigers each made one 3-pointer: Travis, Nelson, Arndt and Johsnon. Koebernick was tops in rebounds with five followed by Arndt and Johnson each with four. Staebler and Zosel each contributed two assists. Nelson stole the ball three times.
Let's take a look at the Benson stats. Here we see Layton Connelly and Max Peterson each with 13 points. Then we have Ty Hedman with eight points. The list continues: Justin Goossen (6), Zack Sonnabend (4), Sam Lundebrek (3) and Chris Ebnet (2). Connelly made two 3-pointers while Hedman made one. Sonnabend snared six rebounds while Connelly had four. Sonnabend dished out four assists.
Girls: Tigers 49, ACGC 44
Rebounding was a big strength for the MACA girls in their exciting home win over Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City. Cheers from the home crowd grew in volume as MACA mounted a second half comeback. We were down by eight points at halftime, 27-19. A grim night? Not at all, as the Tigers showed renewed determination in the second half. We outscored the Falcons 30-17. We breezed past the stunned Falcons to win in the 49-44 final. The game was played on Monday, Jan. 9, at home.
How important was the rebounding? We vacuumed the boards for 38 rebounds. Out skill in the paint began overwhelming the Falcons. Jenna Howden led that effort on the boards with eight rebounds, while Malory Anderson and Correy Hickman each collected six. Hickman was the assist leader with five. Anderson was tops in steals with three.
Anderson made the Tigers' only three-point shot. She was one of two Tigers scoring in double figures as she posted 13 points. Ashley Solvie put in ten points. Correy Hickman contributed nine points to the winning effort. Howden and Nicole Solvie each scored six points. Maddie Carrington scored three while Riley Decker had two.
ACGC had a balanced but not overwhelming scoring effort. Madison Denton led with the modest output of eight points. There were four Falcons each scoring seven points: Anna Grimsgard, Maree Lee, Kendra Miller and Lindsey Minnick. Addison Bernstein scored six points and Pailey Wilner put in two. Lee and Miller each sank a three-point shot.
Minnick and Bernstein co-led in rebounds with five. Lee dished out five assists. Miller stole the ball three times and Grimsgard had two steals.
This was a West Central Conference game.

The Tigers of GBB got humbled by the Sauk Centre Streeters Friday night. The Streeters showed a hot hand from the outset, burning the nets for 49 points in the first half. The second half developed into a stalemate but the first half ended up making the difference in this 83-57 Sauk Centre win.
Riley Decker succeeded three times from three-point range for Morris Area Chokio Alberta. Maddie Carrington had two long-range makes.
It was Ashley Solvie leading the Tigers in scoring with 19 points. Decker was No. 2 with eleven points. Carrington and Malory Anderson each scored six points, and Nicole Solvie scored five. Jenna Howden scored four points, and Carly Wohlers and Correy Hickman each scored three.
