Cretin-Derham Hall beats Farmington with late three-pointer

Cretin-Derham Hall defeated Farmington 57-56 in the other Class 4A quarterfinal Wednesday at Target Center.

Miles Bollinger’s three-pointer with 40 seconds remaining provided a lead that the Raiders did not relinquish.

Questionable shot selection had compounded Cretin-Derham Hall’s troubles, and Bollinger’s shot was likely to continue the trend of unsuccessful forced shots. As soon as he released it, he stumbled.

“I was falling onto my left side, but I was in rhythm and I was feeling it, so I just let it go,” Bollinger said.

A defensive stop sealed the victory.

“We’ve been tested hard because we’ve played a lot of games like this,” Bollinger said. “As our guys moved forward, we got a hold on defense.”

No. 5 seed Cretin-Derham Hall (25-4) advances to the semifinals Thursday at 6 p.m. at Williams Arena and will face defending Class 4A champion Wayzata.

Cretin-Derham Hall led 31-28 at halftime. No. 4 seed Farmington (23-7) led 52-51 with 3:44 remaining in the second half.

Joseph Mitchell III, a Star Tribune All-Metro third-team selection from the Raiders, fouled out with 1:10 remaining and scored a game-high 23 points.

Freshman leads DeLaSalle past Orono

DeLaSalle’s Jaden Udian is a freshman. He doesn’t play like that.

The 6-2 guard came out and buried a three-pointer from between College’s three-point line and the big “M” at midcourt with 6 minutes, 14 seconds remaining. He did not celebrate. He calmly ran back to the defensive position, even though it was not very far.

Udian’s 23 points led No. 5-ranked DeLaSalle to a 70-64 win over Orono in the Class 3A quarterfinals on Wednesday at Williams Arena.

“He hit some shots that lit a fire inside us,” DeLaSalle coach Todd Anderson said. “His threes are like dunks. They’re going in.”

Udiyan went 5 of 8 from beyond the arc.

Junior guard Richard Apiagi added 10 points for the Islanders (21-9). Five other teammates had six to eight points.

“We like to share the ball,” said Islanders senior Ray James Jr., who finished with six points, nine rebounds, five assists and four steals. “When someone calms down, the other player steps in.”

The Islanders didn’t have to worry about it at the free-throw line. They went 16 of 17, all but one coming in the second half.

“They hit some big free throws at the end,” Orono coach Barry Woehler said.

Junior guard Nolan Groves had 18 points against the ever-changing Islanders man-to-man defense, leading four Spartans (19-11) in double figures.

“We missed some shots that we normally make,” Woehler said. “We had some good chances in the second half that we missed. We missed, but it wasn’t for lack of effort.”

Totino-Grace leads late from Stewartville

Discipline. Area.

Two words that could cause problems for Totino-Grace.

Senior Isaiah Johnson-Arrigu used his experience to lead the Eagles out on Wednesday. The 6-7 forward scored seven points and dished out one assist, igniting a final run of 11 points in a seven-minute span as the two-time state champion Eagles defeated Stewartville 57-48 in the Class 3A quarterfinals at Williams Arena. defeated. ,

“Once I settled in, I focused on winning,” said Johnson-Arrigu, who finished with 13 points, 11 coming in the second half. “It was our first game. We had to get used to the pressure.”

The top-ranked Eagles (25-5) trailed 42-39 when junior guard Chase Watley scored on a layup with just over eight minutes remaining. Johnson-Arrigu, a first-team All-Metro pick who has signed with Miami (Florida), took over from that moment on, scoring on an offensive rebound and a fast-break layup, passing to Dothan Ijadimbola for a layup. Passed and sank a free. Throw before ending the run with another driving layup.

“Our defense turned to offense,” Eagles coach Nick Carroll said. “We wanted to make the game faster.”

Totino-Grace’s defense held the Tigers (26-4) without a field goal for nearly 10 minutes, from 11:02 remaining to 1:28 remaining.

“We settled down,” said Stewartville senior guard Henry Tschetter, who scored 15 points, the Tigers’ only player in double figures. “We didn’t move the ball like we did the whole game.”

The Tigers, ranked third in the state, used a well-executed game plan, a disciplined cutting offensive attack and three defenses to take a 41-36 lead on Tschetter’s layup with 11:02 remaining. They rotated between trapping 2-3 zone, 3-2 zone, and man-to-man defense.

“We were a little confused,” Johnson-Arrigu said. “We got used to it through sports.”

Watley scored 13 points and junior forward Tyler Wagner added 12 points for the Eagles. Wagner scored his final eight points of the first half by finishing with an alley-oop dunk off a pass from Ijadimbola.

“These guys have been through the wringer,” Carroll said. “I don’t care if we score eight or 85 points, a win is a win.”
