Perham, MN (WDAY TV) -- There's a basketball powerhouse emerging in Lakes Country and they are finally starting to get some recognition all over the state of Minnesota. Two years ago; Perham was the Cinderella story, rallying around a fallen teammate.
Fast forward to this season and a third straight trip to state and there's only one conclusion; it's a terrific program.
Dave Cresap had to re-shape his entire roster this season, bringing back just two guys that had played a total of 17 minutes, but after another section championship last week they're ready to shock the state again.
Jordan Hein, Perham Sr. Forward: “We're not the typical Perham team, we still have same principles, defense and rebound like to run and gun a little more shoot the 3 but you don't know what to expect.”
Hunter Salathe, Perham Jr. Forward: “It's so hard for other teams to game plan for us for that reason there are eight different guys that can score and do the different role, hard to match up with.”
Josh Nordick, Perham Sr. Guard: “Obviously shows with a brand new team it’s pretty special to get down there and want to make some noise. I think we'll be alright some pretty game jitters, think we can get out on the floor we'll be ok.”
Perham gets a rematch with Minnehaha, a team they lost to to open the season, that's at 6 Wednesday. Battle Lake is there as well taking on Upsala, our coverage from the cities begins on Wednesday.
