Clutch free throw shooting and a relentless effort on the offensive glass lifted the Belgrade Panthers boys’ basketball team on Friday afternoon inside CMR Fieldhouse.

The young Lewistown Fergus couldn’t keep up, as Belgrade collected a 60-51 win to earn a berth in the Central A combined tournament title match.

“It’s a great accomplishment for this group of guys,” Belgrade head coach Mike Deming said. “Had some adversity, they played really hard. Considering where these guys were last year to where they are right now, it’s a lot of hard work.

“They earned their spot in the championship game.”

After the Eagles pulled within six, 51-45, senior guard Brandon Karnath scored four of his six points in the quarter from the charity stripe to power the Panthers. He finished with 12 points.

The Panthers collected 18 offensive rebounds to Fergus’ seven.

Jeremy Ragar sparked Belgrade with a game-high 21 points, including 4-for-6 from 3-point range.

“Our point guard, Jeremy Ragar, I thought controlled the pressure pretty well,” Deming said. “They were really D-ing him up and I thought he shot the ball well.”

Brandon Stubbs added 10 points for the Panthers.

“Our surprise player, Brandon Stubbs, came in and played a phenomenal game for us,” Deming said. “We are really excited about that.”

James Derheim scored 12 points while Jessey Perry led Lewistown with 14. Dylan Stenseth had eight rebounds.

“We played better in the second half,” Deming said. “I thought Lewistown played a spirited effort. They really played high energy.”

The Eagles briefly took a 34-33 lead in the opening minutes of the third quarter. After the Panthers regained the lead 39-37, they refused to give it up the rest of the way.

“We just had to withstand that pressure,” Deming said. “Even when they took the lead, senior leadership, mentality tough down the stretch, we were able to execute. And I think that was the difference.”

“We are a good free throwing shooting team,” Deming said. “We made enough to win the game.”

Stenseth, Lewistown’s junior leader, got in early foul trouble, leaving the Eagles with another hurdle to overcome, head coach Jimmy Graham said.

“We are awful young—eight sophomores and a couple freshmen in my 12 guys,” Graham said. “Their effort is second to none. Guys stepped up. I can’t fault that.

“A few more bounces in the fourth quarter and we had them. Hopefully (against Havre) we’ll have them.”

Belgrade will meet the winner of Browning and Livingston in the championship tonight at 8 p.m. Fergus will play Havre today at 11 a.m.

Central A Boys: Browning advances

All the momentum was on Livingston Park’s side. Half the crowd screamed at him. But none of that seemed to matter to Browning’s DeeJay Lazy Boy.

It didn’t even faze him.

Lazy Boy calmly swished six free throws in the last minute to shepherd the Indians past Park 84-77 on Friday night inside CMR Fieldhouse.

“I just had to sink them,” Lazy Boy said. “I shoot them in practice to get that form down, so it just comes natural.”

The Indians will meet Belgrade in the Central A championship tonight at 8 p.m. at CMR.

“This is nice. We won the conference; we have to go get this Central A title now,” Lazy Boy said.

Lazy Boy netted 33 points, going 10 for 16 from the field and 7 for 8 from the free throw line. Daniel Hall scored 10 points for Browning and Wyatt Mad Plume added eight.

“Coming into the tournaments, we have a really young team with only three guys that have tournament experience,” Browning head coach Mark Magee said. “We finished at the top of the conference. We put a target on our back. We knew everybody was going to be looking for us.”

Despite trailing 65-48 heading into the fourth quarter, the Park Rangers still ‘came looking.’

Park freshman Ladan Ricketts connected on three straight 3-pointers while senior anchor Marcus Payne knocked down six free throws to trim Browning’s lead to 76-74 with one minute to play.

Then came Lazy Boy, and his prowess at the charity stripe. The Indians connected on all eight free throws in the closing seconds—six from Lazy Boy and two from Jalen Croff.

“Free throws made a huge difference in this game,” Magee said. “We shoot free throws every day. I stress that, to make sure they go in when it counts.”

Ricketts finished with 29 points, hitting 9 of 14 shots from behind the 3-point arc. Payne turned in a typical night for him: 22 points and 12 rebounds.

The high-octane and free-wheeling Indians produced a 45-27 lead at halftime.

“Park come out hard; they came out fast,” Magee said. “We got up on them quite a bit but I think we got a little too relaxed to take care of business like we needed to.”

Browning come out of the locker rooms before the game sporting red and black headdresses.

“That was the best feeling in the world coming out with the headdresses. I can’t explain it,” Lazy Boy said.

The overflowing crowd at CMR appeared to enjoy it, too.

“There’s probably nobody left in Browning,” Magee said with a laugh. “Browning just lives on basketball. Browning is a basketball community. They are probably the best fans in this state. It’s unbelievable how they turn out.”

The Indians will look to Lazy Boy’s leadership to be on display again tonight in the title match against Belgrade.

“DeeJay is just a great leader,” Magee said. “He’s fearless, to be honest with you. He’ll shoot the ball from anywhere if he’s open. If he’s not, he’ll take it to the hole.”
