Washburn defeated TLMM Monday night with a 66-64 win. They were earlier upset by Max in the District 9 tournament, which dropped them down to a region qualifying game. Shiloh pulled out a tough win against the New Salem-Almont Holsteins with the score being 54-41. The difference between the teams was the Washburn Cardinals didn’t win their 2nd round game. It lowered their seed and therefore matched Shiloh against them. Next Thursday will kick off the beginning of the Region 5 tournament. Both teams have had a previous battle in the 2016 Regional Championship. Unfortunately, the Shiloh Skyhawks underestimated them and Washburn went on to compete in the state tournament. This game will be one to watch considering both teams will give their best effort. It will be hosted in Bismarck at the Civic Center on the main court.
