Gopher signee Colton Iverson scored 20 points, but it was not enough as No. 1 Sioux Falls Lincoln defeated Yankton 55-46 in the District 2AA title game. Yankton led 32-13 in the first half, but could not stop the Patriots. Due to the lack of schools in South Dakota, Yankton will host Brookings Tuesday in a game that will determine who qualifies for the state tournament.

With just under four minutes left in the second quarter, the Bucks were up 32-13. However, Lincoln rallied to cut the lead to 35-25 to halftime. Yankton shot a 71 percent from the field in the first half.

Within three minutes of the quarter, Lincoln tied the game at 35. They controlled the second half as Yankton shot just 14% from the field and committed 24 turnovers.
