The St. Joseph Bulldogs secured their return trip to the Class B Northwest Regional basketball tournament in an unexpectedly quick and then decisive way last night.
They jumped on the Bigelow Panthers early and there was never really a contest as the Bulldogs won the District 5B-North tournament semifinal, 72-49, at Central Baptist College’s Reddin Fieldhouse.
St. Joseph plays conference champion Nemo Vista in the finals tonight, but both teams are bound for the Northwest Regional next week in Harrison.
