Lange, Eberle steal it...

On the floor in celebration! The Rushford-Peterson Trojans mass after earning a trip to state. They defeated Faribault-Bethlehem Academy 55-47 in the Section 1A title game, overcoming a 47-41 deficit with under five minutes left on the clock. It’s R-P’s seventh trip to state since 2000.

Tanner Lange and Sam Eberle are one of the areas best G tandems plain and simple. Lange does the scoring and main ball handling, Eberle the defending and garbage work, though both can do it all. They compliment each other nicely. A true basketball fan from Rochester-Lourdes should be complimenting them. Eberle got the 3-seeded Knights going early against the 2-seeded Eagles (19-8) in their 1AA West semifinal affair, scoring 8 of Kingsland’s first 10. Lourdes was so respectful of Lange they went box-and-one. Tanner (a 20 PPG scorer) had just two 1st half points (three fouls). Kingsland (w/o Lange) ended the half on an 11-2 run to head to the break up 28-20. A 9-1 Eagle run to start the 2nd tied the game at 29. From there, it was nip-and-tuck (7 ties, 8 lead changes). Jacob Schaefer was Lourdes’ main weapon. The 6’6” soph had a game-high 25 points and 13 rebounds. Down the stretch though, it was all Lange. At 2:33 he authored a steal, and then got fouled. At 2:14 he authored another steal (likely saved a basket), and then went to line a minute later. He made all four FT’s, pivotally giving his team a 49-45 lead (1:20). After trading 1’s and 2’s, an Eagle FT (0:11) cut the Knight lead to 52-49. Eberle was then fouled. He missed both FT’s, but in an amazing display of hustle, beat four Eagles to the rebound (no Knights were on the blocks). He snuffed out Lourdes’ tie/OT hopes (the Knights would’ve been without Lange per a foul-out). A pair of FT’s iced it, 54-49 Kingsland prevailed! Lange led the Knights with 17, 15 in the 2nd half (9-10 FT’s). Eberle scored 12, Spencer Klevan 13 (7 rebounds). Schaefer was the only Eagle in double figures.

….Only to Awaken Sleeping Bears

By virtue of Kingsland’s win, they got 1-seeded Byron (22-5) for the 1AA West title. The first half was a lot Knights. Lange had 11 points, Eberle 6 steals, Byron 14 TO’s. Kingsland led 27-18 at the break. Their quick hands and inspired play roused the Bears from a mini-hibernation. The 2nd half was an entirely different story. Byron hit three 3’s in the first 5:00. They had four TO’s total. Without steals, Kingsland’s offense was hindered. By the 8:00 mark, Byron had the lead (34-33). They wouldn’t surrender it. The Bears hit 13 of 18 FT’s in the final 6:00, 23 of 31 for the game (to Kingsland’s 9 of 18). They out-muscled the Knights 55-48. Lange led the black and silver with 16 points. He also went over 1,000 for his care .....

Posted in All Sports

If an announcer were to call a basketball game in which Rushford-Peterson Trojan Nick Thompson played, he’d likely use the phrase ‘Nick T…for three!’ It rhymes. It offers clarity (Nick’s younger brother Seth is a teammate so saying ‘Thom .....
