Linton top ‘B’ boys poll; Play here Tuesday

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.
 

Filing penguin update

Ace Sun news writer Ben Rodgers and new sports guy Dave Griswold just returned from the scene and confirmed there are decidedly not penguins taking up residence in Jamestown.

The alleged flightless critters were actually frozen cattails. You can’t make that up.

Buzz kill.

Penguins in Jamestown?

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.

Weather pushes Jimmes back again

For the second time in three days, the Jamestown College basketball teams had its doubleheader in Mayville State moved back a day.

Originally scheduled to be played on Saturday, blizzard conditions forced the teams to move the games for a second time to Tuesday night with tip times of 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.

The Jimmies are at home this weekend, with Minot State here Friday and Dickinson State Saturday.
