APPLE VALLEY 60, BURNSVILLE 59: Eagles sophomore Jaryn Pipkins made a basket with 15 seconds remaining, giving Apple Valley a one-point victory over the Blaze in the South Suburban.

NORTHFIELD 49, HOLY ANGELS 48: Senior guard Elena Huber made two free throws with 21 seconds left, lifting the Raiders over the Stars in the Missota.

Johnson, a junior forward, had nine assists.

TOTINO-GRACE 62, MINNEAPOLIS SOUTHWEST 52: Senior guard Kaeli Kraska set a milestone and did a little bit of everything to lead the Eagles past the Lakers. Kraska scored a game-high 23 points, including the 1,000th of her career, while going 12-for-12 from the free-throw line. She also added eight steals and six assists. Micah Thornquist led Southwest with 21 points.

MAPLE GROVE 69, CENTENNIAL 57: The Crimson defense took charge in the second half, creating turnovers and holding the Cougars to 22 second-half points in the Northwest Suburban victory. Ellen Edison paced three Maple Grove players in double figures with 16 points. Centennial senior guard Kahla Becken had a game-high 27 points, including six three-pointers.
