Windom 29-23-04 = 56
St. James 21-31-12 = 64

The Windom boys basketball team had top-seeded St. James on the ropes Saturday evening, but the Saints fought back, forcing overtime and eventually claiming a 64-56 victory over the Eagles in the Section 3AA playoffs at St. James.

The loss ended the Eagles' season with a 2-24 record.

Windom got off to a strong start in the first half, surging to the lead behind a strong effort on defense and on the glass. Eric Pfeffer and Conner Redman shouldered the offensive load early, and a lay-up by Connor Slette at the horn gave the Eagles a 29-21 halftime advantage.

In the second half, the Eagles quickly pushed the lead as large as 12 before the Saints chipped away at the deficit. An 8-0 run late in regulation gave the Saints a three-point lead before Pfeffer drained a three-pointer with 40 seconds to go. St. James held for the last shot, but an attempt at the buzzer missed, sending the game to overtime.

In overtime, the Saints quickly scored the first four points. The Eagles couldn't make up ground at the free throw line, going 2-for-6 in overtime.

Pfeffer led the Eagles with 17 points. Redman added 13, 10 in the first half. Kobe Lovell finished with nine points and 18 rebounds.

Jaguars at Wolverines, postponed
Monday's scheduled Section 2A playoff game between Truman/Martin Luther/Granada-Huntley-East Chain and Mt. Lake Area-Comfrey was postponed due to forecasts of strong winds that prompted Mt. Lake schools to close.

The game was rescheduled for Tuesday, beginning at 7 p.m., in Mt. Lake.

RRC 24-30 = 54
WWG 42-24 = 66

Westbrook-Walnut Grove used a strong first half to build a lead, then held off a late surge to defeat Red Rock Central 66-54 Saturday in the Section 3A playoffs in Worthington.

WWG's defense held the Falcons in check in the first half, as RRC shot 31 percent from the field early. Meanwhile, the Chargers pounded the ball inside to senior Parker Freeburg, who scored 15 of his game-high 23 points in the first half. Freeburg hit a lay-up late in the first half to surpass the 1,000-point mark for his career. An Andrew Quade three-pointer at the horn gave WWG an 18-point halftime lead.

In the second half, RRC slowly chipped into the deficit. Senior Spencer Halland scored eight second half points, playing the final 16 minutes of the game with four fouls. RRC hit five second-half three-pointers and eventually pulled to within nine points. But Quade and Nathan Ross combined to go 5-of-8 from the line in the final two minutes, sealing the win for the Chargers.

Freeburg led WWG with 23 points and 13 rebounds. Ethan Mischke added 17 points and Quade finished with eight points and seven assists. Ross added a team-high eight assists.

Halland led the Falcons with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Noah Stavnes added 10 points and Sam Helmer scored nine.
