Grand Rapids Basketball

It’s been a busy time of playoff basketball action the last few weeks. The Grand Rapids Thunderhawks boys’ basketball team had their season come to an end on Tuesday the 3rd as they ran into the #1 seeded Chisago Lakes Wildcats and ended with a 60-33 loss. The Thunderhawks ending a season with an amazing number of close games and buzzer beaters.  By my count 7 games decided in regulation by 2 points or less and 5 OT games. The season may be over but a lot of great memories and good luck to the 3 seniors who have played their last game for Grand Rapids basketball. Hunter Dubbles, Trevor Elhard, and Bruno Dura you will each be missed.

Grand Rapids girls’ basketball team is still playing in 7AAA playoffs taking on #3 seeded North Branch in semi-final action on Thursday. Grand Rapids girls with a #2 seed and looking to make a state tournament run.
