Page 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2018 By Kevin Skavhaug It was a Three-for-all The theme at the Cen- tral Valley gym Friday night was the number three. The boys basketball game between the Aggies and Burros was epic. The number 3 ranked team in the state needed a 3 point banked in shot by Carson Henningsgard (who wears number 3) to win by a margin of 3. The 65-62 loss by the Aggies can be a good thing. Hold on here. From my perspective, this year's Aggie team has grown steadily from the start of the season. With two re- turning starters from last year's team (Adam Zaval- ney and Jace Jehlicka) and no other player that has hardly any varsity time un- der their belt, the Aggies are starting to jell. So the game against the highly touted Burros can be seen in a positive light. Losing isn't always a death knell. Fact is, it hardly ever is. Losing is paramount to build re- silience, resolve, or what- ever you want to call the idea that through failures you learn and get better. So yes, it was a tough game to lose but on the other hand, the effort and ability the Aggies showed Friday proved that this team can play with anyone in the state. Even the de- fending state chaml ions. The great coach John Wooden once said, "You can lose even though you outscore your opponent and you can win even though you didn't" Again, from my per- spective, this year's Aggie team takes some pride in their defense. The coach- ing staff has put together some very effective defen- sive schemes that the kids have bought into. They work hard on that aspect of the game. And offen- sively, with each game they are jelling with one another better than they did the game before Yes, I'm biased, but it's hard to argue it hasn't been fun to watch. Want some other fun three facts from Friday's game. Each team hit five 3 pointers. Six for Hillsboro if you count the 3 free throws made by the Burros on a close foul call on a three point shot. Each team reclaimed the lead three times in the final three minutes of the con- test. The last lead change of course occurred with the winning shot with of course, :03 seconds to play. Great effort Aggies. It was fun to watch. Photos: Larry Bid Top Left: Park River/Fordville-Lankin Aggies Amy Seim launches a three point shot against North Star.
