Fond du Lac finishes fourth
Trevontae Brown and the Fond du Lac Ojibwe boys basketball team finished their season Saturday morning running and gunning.
Brown tied a Minnesota State High School League State record when the senior made 10 3-pointers for all of his 30 points, but it wasn’t nearly enough in the Ogichidaa’s 103-87 Class A state boys basketball third-place game loss to Maranatha Christian Academy today at the Gangelhoff Center at Concordia University-St. Paul.
Brown, a 6-foot guard, was a ridiculous 10-of-16 from beyond the arc, as No. 5 FDL (24-5) led early, but trailed 57-48 at halftime and couldn’t keep pace with the third-seeded Mustangs (27-4) in a shooters-paradise game.
Brown’s point total wasn’t even the day’s highest output, as Mustang Josh Goldschmidt led four players in double figures with 45, as Davonte Williamson — an all-tournament team pick with Brown — scored 17, along with Jordan Diver in FDL’s best-ever finish in school history.
