Buc boys get No. 1 seed, play Le Sueur-Henderson
The Buccaneer boys basketball team from Blue Earth Area was awarded the No. 1 seed in Section 2A West – Class AA Sub-Section Boys Basketball Tournament.
The Bucs will host the No. 8 seeded LeSueur-Henderson Giants in the opening round. The game is set for Tuesday night, March 10, at 8:01 p.m. in the BEA gym.
The strange start time is due to state-wide township annual meetings that evening.

Belle Plaine was seeded No. 2, and plays No. 7 seed Montgomery-Lonsdale. No. 3 seed Maple River faces No. 6 seed USC in the opening round.
