Hanson tops 1,000

For 16-plus minutes of the Lanesboro boys' dual with Hope Lutheran, the Burros were a bit tight. They were a little anxious. A teammate was on the cusp. Braden Hanson, the Burros multi-talented 6'2" senior guard, came into the contest with 986 career points. Naturally, his teammates were trying to get him the ball. Nearing the end of the half, Hanson was 12 points closer, a shot away, from the milestone. The elbow jumper that did it is probably one Braden's let fly a thousand times. But this free throw 'J' will likely be the one he most remembers, the one that's most significant. As his coach John Smith put it, "It was a great accomplishment for Braden. He has put in a lot of time in the gym over the years and it was nice to see him rewarded for his efforts." Hanson poured in 20 more points in the second half (34 for the game). He added 12 rebounds. His double-double, and a Burro 16-3 run to end the contest, helped make the night doubly delightful for black and orange fans (67-50 victory). Hanson has been a fixture in the line-up since his freshmen year (7.4 per game), a starter since his sophomore (11.9 per game). A season ago, he averaged 16 a game. Through four games this year, he's scoring at a 25/game clip. If he keeps that rate up (stays healthy), he could become the Burros all-time leading male scorer (surpassing Bill Johnson's 1,352 points set in 1961).

43! ...If Only 46

In HS basketball, scoring in double figures is a solid night. In the 3-Rivers boy's battle between L-A and R-P, six players achieved the feat. Scoring 20-plus is a good night. Josh Ehlenfeldt, the Card's well aimed 5'7" SG, hit the mark exactly. Scoring 30 happens every so often, and scoring 40 infrequently. R-P's Nick Thompson scored 22...in the first half. He added 21...in the second half. Trojan number 21's spot in the book was well marked; Thompson lit up L-A for 43! He needed another bucket. He had the chances. A Trojan press allowed the home squad to lead most of the first half, but a 7-0 run midway through the second gave L-A a six-point lead. It got as high as eight. R-P cut it to two (71-69) at the 2:16 mark. At that point, a rare situation occurred. R-P didn't foul; L-A was far from the bonus. The Card's, meanwhile, were out of timeouts; they had to throw the ball in-bounds. A frantic game of desperate in-bounds passing and defense ensued. R-P's franticness won out, sort of. They forced a number of TO's and got five (three-point) attempts at taking the le .....
