One win away from the state tournament

Fergus Falls, Minn. (WDAY Sports) - The Hillcrest boys basketball team stands just a win away from returning to the state tournament for the first time since 2001.

The Comets have cruised thru the season losing just two games.

Two of the main reasons for that is the great defense Hillcrest plays, only allowing 44 points a game, and getting everyone involved.

“Lot of opposing coaches mention that whenever five guys get tired, we get five fresh guys in there and that's really tough for teams to oppose us.”

“Clearly as a team, we find joy in shutting teams down and that's what we do.”

It should be a terrific game and you can see it here on wday, our coverage starts at 7 tomorrow night from Concordia, Ada-Borup and Hillcrest, the winner heads to state.
