HURON — The James Valley Christian Vikings boys’ basketball team defeated the Wolsey-Wessington Warbirds 66-58 in the 281 Conference Tournament championship Thursday at Huron Arena.

Nathan Wedel scored 20 points and Adam Hofer had 19 to lead the Vikings while Alex Babcock had 20 for the Warbirds. He was joined by Lorenzo Williams, who finished with 11 points and Hayden Hooks had nine.

The Warbirds took a one-point lead into halftime, 28-27, but the Vikings scored 21 in the third period to take a five-point lead into the final quarter.

The Vikings did much of their damage from field behind Hofer, who had nine points in the quarter.

In the final eight minutes the Vikings got to the free-throw line. They made just two field goals but shot 14-of-17 from the line to hold off the Warbirds.

Babcock, who had six points in the final quarter and was 8-of-9 from the line, sparked a rally.

The Vikings (9-0) now turn their attention to a Saturday contest in Mitchell against Viborg-Hurley.

The Warbirds (9-1) will not play again until they travel to White Lake Friday, Jan. 25.
