Hopkins Boys Basketball Topples # 1 Wayzata
The Hopkins boys basketball team never trailed top-ranked Wayzata as the 3rd-ranked Royals beat on the way to an 87-80 win Tuesday night.
The Trojans tied the game 2-2 but never led in the game as the Royals built a 19-point lead late in the first half.
Hopkins used tough defense and a balanced scoring attack to build a 39-28 at halftime.
All five Hopkins starters scored in double figures led by Xavier White with 21 points. Elvis Nnaji scored 19 and Tristan Lee added 18.
Carter Bjerke scored 24 points, including six three-pointers, for Wayzata who closed to within four points late but got no closer.
