No. 1 ranked Minneapolis North defeated the Red Lake Warriors 93-46 in the quarterfinals of the Boys Class 1A State Tournament at Williams Arena!

Senior Isaac Johnson finished the game with 20 points. "I think today we really set the tone for the rest of the tournament...Everyone will see that we won by 40 points, and hopefully that will strike fear into the hearts of our opponents," he said.

Junior Taylor Johnson (pictured here) finished with 18 points, seven rebounds..., four steals, three blocked shots, and two assists.

The Polar's semifinal game tomorrow will take place at Target Center at noon. If they win that game, they will advance to the state championship on Saturday.
