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.

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.
