Rushford-Peterson blows out Fond du Lac Ojibwe, advances to Class A semifinals

Posted: Updated:
Senior Charlie Krambeer scored 33 points and the Rushford-Peterson boys basketball team made 10 3-pointers in the first half Friday morning en route to a 105-58 win over Fond du Lac Ojibwe in the Class A quarterfinals.

Krambeer was one of four Trojans starters in double-figures in a game that got out of hand early. The senior finished 12-for-17 from the field, including 7-for-9 from behind the arch - three short of the tournament record. He had 28 points by halftime.

As a team, the Trojans were 16-for-27 from behind the arch, also three short of the tournament record. Rushford-Peterson shot 61.7 percent from the floor in the first half, scoring 61 points. On the day, the team shot 64.1 percent from the field.

The only drawback to Thursday's win was an ankle injury for Cole Kingsley. The senior landed awkwardly on a Fond du Lac player in the first half, and was seen on crutches in the second half.

The Trojans will face Central Minnesota Christian Friday at noon in the semifinals at the Target Center.
