The top-ranked Linton boys’ basketball team will be playing in Jamestown today.
The 12-0 Lions remained as the No. 1 team in the latest Class B basketball poll, getting eight of the 11 first-place votes.
The top five are unchanged from last week, rounded out by 9-1 Carrington at No. 5.
Grafton (9-1) is the lone new entrant. The Spoilers went from unranked to No. 7.
Beach (11-0) got all 11 first-place votes in the girls’ poll.
Carrington is No. 2. The 12-1 Cardinals only loss came to the top-ranked Buccaneers.
Kidder County (14-1) is still ranked fourth, while Linton (11-1) moved up three spots and shares the No. 6 spot with Harvey (11-1). The Lions meet No. 5 Central Cass (14-1) today at the Civic Center at 6 p.m.
Dakota Prairie (12-2) and Finley-Sharon-Hope-Page (13-2) also moved into the poll and share the No. 9 position.
This, of course, has nothing to do with sports, but Sun ace news scribe Ben "Hair" Rodgers just got a phone tip that there are actual penguins lounging around behind the Gardenette apartment complex here in Jamestown, N.D.
There’s not much going on in the world of sports tonight – thank you weather – so we’ll keep you updated. I’m fairly certain none of you in the blogosphere care about the potential penguin blockbuster unfolding here in the Buffalo City, and if you do, I’m sorry.
