2019 Class B State preview

Local Sports

Shiloh Christian, Beulah, Powers Lake and Bishop Ryan are gearing up for this year’s Class B state tournament.

The first matchup on Thursday features the two seed Shiloh and Beulah. Shiloh has looked very consistent this season, with consistent production coming from Jaden Mitzel, Macauley Young, Matt Reep, Canaan Fagerland and more. The Miners are one of the Skyhawks’ three losses, though. Chad Morsette, Jr. leads Beulah with 17 points a game, and Garrison transfer Jonah Larson averages a double-double. He and Macauley Young are sure to have an intense one-on-one battle.

Powers Lake is back at state for the first time since 1939. Kyle VanBerkom is close to averaging a triple double for the Ranchers, and center Aiden Nordloef provides a ton of physicality and scoring efficiency. They’re going against a Richland team that has plenty of length, so the team that owns the paint should walk away with a win.

Bishop Ryan is a strong four seed this year after losing last year’s state championship via a buzzer-beater. Seniors Mason Hedberg and Ben Bohl each shoot over 50 percent from the floor, put up at least 20 a game and are deadly from downtown. With state being held in their own backyard, the Lions have a lot going for them. They’ll take on New Rockford-Sheyenne, who upset a very impressive Four Winds team to reach the state tournament.

Thursday’s schedule at the Minot State Dome is below:

Beulah vs. Shiloh Christian, 1 p.m.

Powers Lake vs. Richland, 2:45 p.m.

Ellendale vs. Thompson, 6:30 p.m.

New Rockford-Sheyenne vs. Bishop Ryan, 8:15 p.m.
