Vikings Fall to Hibbing 48-66

Friday night we hosted Top-10 Hibbing and came up short, 48-66. Hibbing, one of the favorites in section 7AAA, came into the game 5-1, and despite it being a close game at the half we weren’t able to stay within reach throughout the second half. Hibbing jumped on us early, taking a commanding 22-7 lead

Vikings BBB win in OT 81-79

It was great to finally win a close game! We had been 0-4 in games decided by 2 possessions or less so it was awesome to see our guys get one against Becker on Monday night. Becker entered the game 5-3 and beat us the first game of the year 89-81. We got down early

Boys Basketball Catch Up

I was hoping to keep up with these game wrap ups as the season progressed but with the craziness of the season I got behind so I have three quick ones below. We are sitting at 1-7, which isn’t where we thought we would be at this time. We have been highly competitive in many

Vikings Comeback Falls Short VS Monticello 78-82

Tuesday night we fell short to the Monticello Magic 78-82 (sorry, couple of days late). I will keep this brief since I am a couple of days behind and preparing for our game tomorrow against Monticello. We came out of the gates extremely flat and got down by as many as 20 in the 1st

Vikings Offense Struggles vs Chisago and Lose 47-48

We played at Chisago Lakes Saturday evening and came home with a 47-48 loss. Offensively we weren’t able to get on track all night, being held to 17 first half points. For the second game in a row we were able to hold our opponent to under 50 points which is great but we have

North Branch over Cambridge 65-33

We were able to get our first win of the year over the Cambridge-Isanti Bluejackets on Tuesday night. This was our first win against them since December 15, 2001! Our guys came out and played incredibly hard and focused, especially on the defensive end…allowing our fewest points since January 11, 2005. Both teams struggled out

Vikings Boys Fall to Tartan 44-75

In the second game of the year, we lost to perennial power Tartan 44-75. Tartan is one of the best programs in the state and is an annual state competitor in 4AAAA–which was great for us to see where we measure up against the best. Their defensive pressure proved to be the difference…but I think

Vikings Boys Open with 81-89 Loss to Becker

Finally! We finally got to this season after dealing with Covid restrictions/guidelines/recommendations for the last nine months and it was great having some fans in the stands and our players out on the court. We opened up our season playing Mississippi 8 foe, the Becker Bulldogs, and unfortunately we came up on the short end

Boys Basketball Last Two Weeks

As the season is getting closer to the end, seems like my weekly updates have become every other week. I will wrap up our two games from the week of Feb 9-15th really quickly and then get into this past week. February 11th Home vs St Francis LOSS 65-71 We were really looking forward to

Boys Basketball Weekly Recap February 2nd-8th

We had two more games, and despite losing both I feel like our offense is starting to turn a corner. Our shooting is improving and I think our guys are getting more comfortable in the new style we implemented this season. We are giving our guys a lot more freedom to make plays and I
