Players from three area boys prep teams will get a little taste of college basketball at this weekend’s annual Bremer Bank Holiday Classic. Willmar and its two tournament opponents, New London-Spicer and Benson, will play using a 35-second shot clock. And, for the first time, the Classic will feature an eight-team, jamboree-type schedule instead of the four-team bracketed playoff format. The tournament begins with NLS playing MACCRAY at 2 p.m. Friday, followed by Windom playing Sauk Centre at 4 p.m., BOLD playing BBE at 6 p.m.

MINNEAPOLIS — In no sport is the preparation for a game as painstakingly precise as it is in football.
The New London-Spicer football team occasionally reflects back on its disappointing loss to St. Croix Lutheran in the Class AAA state championship game last season. The game even inspired the team’s motto for 2014, “New Team, Same Dream.” It was great motivation along the way as the Wildcats clawed their way back to the state title game at 1 p.m. today against Rochester Lourdes at TCF Bank Stadium. But now, their mantra is more along the lines of “One More Win.” “It’s still in the back of our minds sometimes,” said NLS all-purpose threat Shane Zylstra.
As the BOLD football team prepares to play for the Class AA state championship in its final game of the season, it was their first game of 2014 that provided significant motivation to getting the Warriors to this point. The 12-1 Warriors play 10-3 Holdingford for the state title at 1 p.m. Friday at TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus. BOLD is riding a 12-game winning streak, during which the Warriors have averaged 37 points per game while allowing fewer than 10 points per game.
