Enderlin head boys basketball coach Calvin Kraft knew a win over Central Cass wouldn’t come easy.

“We knew it was gonna be a battle,” Kraft said. “It was gonna be a full house here at Central Cass. They were ranked high and undefeated.”

The matchup certainly lived up to expectations. The Eagles and Squirrels were tied at 51-51 early in the fourth quarter. Ultimately, Enderlin made the winning plays it needed to when it mattered.

North Dakota State College of Science's Ivane Tensaie racking up points and D-I offers for the Wildcats

WAHPETON, N.D. — Ivane Tensaie had NCAA Division I dreams during her high school girls basketball career at Concordia Academy in Roseville, Minn., but offers from that level weren’t there as she completed her prep career with the Beacons.

The 5-foot-7 point guard decided to trust in her talent.

Tensaie, who had multiple Division II offers coming out of high school, instead committed to North Dakota State College of Science, a junior college program, to improve her profile. In her first college season, Tensaie is among the top scorers in the nation and has double-digit D-I offers.
