The outstanding play of Larry Perkins, Zashon Rich and AuVon Sager led Minneapolis North—coached by Ricky Davis—to an 86-72 victory over St. Paul Johnson boys’ basketball championship last Saturday afternoon.
Perkins, a senior guard, led the Polars with 26 points, junior backcourt mate Rich had 21, and fellow senior Sager added 20. The Polars have won the past six of seven TC titles while participating in the last 10 contests.
The visiting Governors—coached by Colin Moore—got 18 points from senior guard Jay Tinsley, 12 from Kenny Turner, and seven first-half points from junior guard Jalani Mays.
Minneapolis Southwest won the C-squad TC crown with a victory over Johnson, while North captured the JV title with a win over the Governors as well.
