FARGO — The North Dakota Class B Region 1 boys basketball tournament kicks off today at Scheels Arena and tonight’s 7:30 p.m. quarterfinal between Enderlin and Kindred stands to be a historic one for Enderlin senior Graham Hurlburt.
Hurlburt, a 6-foot-7 shooting guard, is only 15 points away from breaking Enderlin’s school record for career points. Jason Thielges, now the head football coach at Fargo Davies High School, holds Enderlin’s scoring record with 1,502 points.
Hurlburt, who is averaging 20-plus points per game for the Eagles this season sits at 1,488 points heading into the Region 1 tournament.
Hurlburt closed out the regular season with 36- and 35-point efforts.
Enderlin is trying to qualify for the state tournament for the first time since 1996.
