Cinderellas Rule The Early State Tournament Action

Half of the state tournament opening round games have been completed, and certainly some surprising results emerged.

Further proof that records mean nothing at state tourney time, here’s what we learned from today’s afternoon games.


The lower seeded teams are a perfect two-for-two, as both Ennis and Belt were upset today. The Mustangs were the champions of the Western C division, but none of that mattered to a pesky Joliet squad that had to survive a challenge game Monday just to advance to state. Then, previously unbeaten Belt was knocked off by Saco-Whitewater for the second year in a row. Last year the upset occurred in the semifinal round.


Much like the State C girls action, things have been wild in the early going. 20-1 Loyola, Western B divisional champ, was knocked off by Baker, the Southern B’s 4th seed 29-28. Malta took care of business in the second game, although Broadus made things interesting in this one. However, the M-Ettes pick up the win 59-50.


From here on out, no more surprises as everything stayed the course. Butte Central and Dillon, divisional champs of the Central and Southwest, respectively, picked up wins over Libby and Billings Central.


Just like the ladies, the favorites won the first two games at Brick Breeden Fieldhouse. Columbia Falls turned a close game at the half into a romp over Belgrade, and Laurel survived the explosive Corvallis Blue Devils and won as well.
