Maple Grove cruises to win in state boys basketball
Maple Grove had to ignore talk that they got the easy draw in the first round of the state Class AAAA boys basketball tournament when they were matched up with Andover.

The Huskies came into the tournament with an 11-18 record, while Maple Grove was 27-2.

After Andover stayed close for the first portion of the first half, they went cold from the field while Maple Grove continued to score, leading to a 40-22 halftime lead for the Crimson on Bubba Horton's three pointer at the buzzer.

Maple Grove wasn't seriously threatened in the second half on the way to a 73-50 win.

The Crimson face Apple Valley, the number three seed, in the semifinals Thursday night at 8:00 at Target Center.
Maple Grove beat Apple Valley 103-87 early in the season.

You can see the Maple Grove-Andover game on CCX Sports channels 12 & 799 in the northwest suburbs and online at www.ccxmedia.org Friday morning at 10:00 a.m.
