10 YEARS AGO (2010): Only two high schools can boast having Mr. Basketball and Miss Basketball winners in the same season. Kidder County has become the first Class B school with that distinction. Adam Randall was chosen Mr. Basketball a week after Eli Benz was named Miss Basketball. Randall, a 6-foot-4 forward, averaged 26.1 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists as a senior. Nik Savageau of Fargo North, Grant Singer of Turtle Lake-Mercer-McClusky and Bryan Kielpinski of Mandan were the other Mr. Basketball finalists.              

20 YEARS AGO (2000): Tyrone Terry of Valley City, Nathan Natwick of Bismarck and Josh Olson of Beulah are unanimous selections for the boys Class A all-state basketball team. The first team also includes Jon Godfread of Grand Forks Red River and Robert Dobson of Minot. The second team includes Brian VerDouw of St. Mary's and Will Spencer of Century.

50 YEARS AGO (1970): After fruitlessly trying five times in the past six years, New England St. Mary's claimed its first state Class B basketball title with a 54-53 victory over Belcourt. Les Schroeder's free throw with seven seconds remaining proved to be the game-winner. St. Mary's trailed 42-34 going into the fourth quarter. Larry Gardner of St. Mary's and Dan Keplin of Belcourt were the game's leading scorers with 16 apiece.  The Saints completed the season with a 24-3 record and 15 straight victories.
