It was business as usual for the Lady Indians, and while they had the usual season-opening jitters, they did what was needed to take home the first-round win in the Lake Region Invitational. 

Nelson County @ Devils Lake JV (Dec. 2)

Final score: 41-37 Devils Lake JV

    -       07-10-08-16: 41

    -       13-14-02-08: 37

The Chargers have a stout defense. Two games have illustrated this. However, it was Devils Lake JV who found a couple extra baskets to make their sturdy defense hold strong. 

New Rockford-Sheyenne vs. Drake-Anamoose (Dec. 2)

Final score: 41-31 Drake-Anamoose

At a glance:

The Rockets dropped their opening CNDC Tournament game to Drake-Anamoose and will next take on Rolla on Dec. 3. 

Class B, Region 8:

North Star vs. Dunseith (Dec. 2)

Final score: 44-43 Dunseith

-       12-07-10-15: 44

-       10-13-09-11: 43

At a glance:

It looked as if North Star would take the opening-round win after senior guard/forward Lindsey Nyhagen nabbed a three-pointer with less than 10 seconds to go in the fourth quarter. However, it was Dunseith who drew the game-clinching play as they drove into the low post to pick up a buzzer-beating layup to close the game out.
