On the Class A girls side, Mandan is looking for redemption as they enter the state tournament.
The Braves arguably played their worst half of the season in the second half against Century for the WDA championship. In those 18 minutes, Mandan only scored 12 points while giving up 38.
In the first round of the state tournament, Mandan will play West Fargo Sheyenne, a team they defeated, 73-50, in the first game of the season.
“They like to run and push the ball a lot and they shoot,” Zander said. “We just know that they are kind of similar to us. We just know that we have to stop their shooters and transition.”
Mandan’s game will be the second of the day in Exhibition Hall D at 3 p.m.
