Pregame info: The Division 5 boys basketball playoffs resume tonight in Wisconsin, and we will carry the Frederic Vikings @ Siren Dragons game, which tips at 7pm. Josh Miggler will call the action in this, the third meeting of the two teams this season. It’s a #2-#3 matchup in the Regional Semifinal. The winner will most likely take on Luck tomorrow night. Siren is 16-6 while the Frederic Vikings are 14-9. The two teams split in the regular season, each winning on it’s own home court. That may give the Dragons a slight edge in this one, but it should be a fun battle.
Pre Game Info: The Mora Mustangs finished the regular season winning four of their final five games. Tonight, they have to face the one team that beat them in that stretch, the Milaca Wovles, in the opening round of the playoffs. It’s Class AA Section 5 boys basketball tonight on FM 100.9, Mora at Milaca. The Mustangs had an up and down season, but that late win streak had them finish with a winning record at 13-12. The Wolves, however, lost their final three regular season games and are looking to turn this around in the playoffs. Milaca took both regular season meetings, but had lost four straight to Mora previously. The teams know each other well as both are in the Granite Ridge Conference.
Pregame info: On SAM1057 tonight, Josh Miggler takes the call for boys basketball in Division 4. The Grantsburg Pirates will host Ladysmith in a #3 vs #6 matchup. Grantsburg is looking to erase the memory of a one-and-done home loss in the postseason last year. The Pirates have struggled at times this season and are only 4-17, but have some solid young talent that they are building with for the future, and a great senior leader in Jacob Ohnstad. The game tips at 7pm and will also be streamed on the website.
Pre Game Info: Tonight, the Pine City Dragons will take a bus to the northern end of our listening area for a rematch with the Moose Lake-Willow River Rebels. It was just 10 days ago that the two teams met on a bizarre Saturday, complete with a two-hour postponement, and the Dragons were beaten 70-44 by the Rebels, who dominated play early that day. This is the opening round of play in Section 7 Class AA. The winner will advance to face the winner of tomorrow night’s Rush City @ Barnum game. Jesse Logan is calling the game.
Pregame info: The boys high school playoff broadcast schedule tips off tonight with our first posteason hoops game. Jesse Logan will be at East Central High School for a Class A game in Section 5. The Eagles are hosting a team from the Christian Athletic League, the St. Cloud Christian Warriors, who enter with a 9-7 record. East Central has a team that is able to get up and down the floor, as do the Warriors, so tonight’s game should be entertaining.
