Mr. Basketball finalist Brian Goodwin scored 25 points Friday afternoon as Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa beat Fond du Lac Ojibwe 76-58 to advance to the Boys' State Basketball Tournament Class A championship game. Billy Borgerding added 21 points and a team-high 11 rebounds.

BBE jumped out to an early 6-0 lead and led by as many as 17 before halftime. Fond du Lac made a small run early in the second half to cut the lead to seven points, but would get no closer.

Fond du Lac committed 22 turnovers compared to BBE's 13 but was able to hang around by making eight 3-pointers. BBE answered back each time by scoring easy transition baskets after Fond du Lac failed to get back on defense. BEE also held a 48-39 advantage on the boards.

BBE will face either Marantha Christian Academy or Rushford-Peterson in the Class A championship game Saturday afternoon at Target Center.
