PLAYBACK

10 YEARS AGO (2011): After dropping three of the first four matches, South Border went 9-1 the rest of the way to defeat Central Cass 57-18 in the quarterfinal round of the state Class B dual wrestling tournament at the Fargodome. Unbeaten South Border took command with successive pins by Drew Dockter at 145, Andrew Jochim at 152 and Tanner Meidinger at 150. A Central Cass forfeit at 171 was followed by Justin Deede's pin at 189. That run gave the Mustangs a 36-12 lead.

20 YEARS AGO (2001): James Battle scored 24 points and James Gould popped in 23 as the University of Mary edged Black Hills State 73-71 in a DAC college basketball game in Spearfish, S.D. Brett Theeler tallied 24 points for Black Hills State and Derrick Yarber added 16. The winning Marauders shot 65 percent in the second half and 62 percent for the game.

50 YEARS AGO (1971): Denny Dickensheets threw in 41 points to lead Assumption Junior College to a 111-73 upset victory over Lake Region Junior College in college basketball at Richardton. The Astros improved to 12-12 with their win over Lake Region, the Mon-Dak Conference leader. Dickensheets made good on 17 of 29 field goal attempts and pulled down 13 rebounds. Les Schroeder, Ed Brost and Joel Irish added 18, 17 and 16 points, respectively, for the Astros. Dave Johnson scored 16 for Lake Region, followed by Brian Anderson with 16.

TRIVIA ANSWER
