Rangers win, Norse fall to Rainy River

MOUNTAIN IRON — The Rangers’ Jordan Zubich knocked down seven threes to lead Mountain Iron-Buhl to a 76-42 win over New York Mills on MI-B Basketball Hall of Fame Day.

Ranger head coach Jeff Buffetta attributed the win to getting past the Eagles’ defense and toughness.

“once we handled their physicality and moved the ball well against their zone, I think we did a lot of nice things,” Buffetta said. “We made a lot of nice passes to get open and it was a good win.”

Zubich led all scorers with 27 in the contest. Sage Ganyo added 15 for the Rangers.

Brenna Thompson paced New York Mills with nine points.

Mountain Iron-Buhl (12-4) will play host to Eveleth-Gilbert on Monday.
