Milnor, ND (WDAY TV) - now that the calendar has turned to January, the high school basketball season will rev up and for the second year in a row, the Milnor boys are on a tear.
The defending state champs are 8-0 so far this year, ranked number one.
The biggest reason why the Bison are back on top is experience,
Ben Nelson's team brings back four starters, including standouts Wyatt Mund and Britton Bussman.
Ben Nelson/Milnor Head Coach: “These guys know that every night we come out we have a target on our back, we can't take a night off cause if we do we are going to get beat and our goal every night is to be the better team on the floor and to play the best we can every single night. So we know we can't take a night off and every time we are going to get every teams best shot.”
Briton Bussman/Milnor Sr. Guard: “We didn't want to get complacent at all we want to bring it every game we set some big goals. One of them is we wanted to go undefeated and that doesn't happen very often but that's one of our big goals we have.”
Milnor travels to Oakes on Thursday, they have a showdown later this month with Region 1 rival Oak Grove on January 28th, remember WDAY is your home for the Class B State Tournament in early March.
