Hopkins got 22 points from its bench and capitalized on 22 Tartan turnovers Wednesday in a 70-58 Class 4A Quarterfinal win.

Senior guard Kamali Chambers led all players with 21 points for Hopkins (29-1). Senior forward Noble Fahnbulleh came off the bench to add 14 points for the Royals.

The Titans stayed with the Royals for about the first 10 minutes of the game, even holding a one point lead at the 8-minute mark of the first half. It would be their last lead of the game though.

Senior center Brody Jackson led Tartan with 15 points and a game-high 10 rebounds. Ninth grade guard Jordan added another 15 points.

Tartan finishes the season with a 23-7 record.

Hopkins will play Shakopee in Thursday's semifinal round at Target Center.
