The 5A SIC is assured of having a team in the 5A Championship game Saturday March 3rd after Rocky Mountain and Borah won opening round games in the 5A State Tournament at the Ford Idaho Center.

Borah topped Madison 44-39 while Rocky Mountain beat Boise 53-45 both games broadcast on sports radio 630 The Fan.

Tonight at 6:15 p.m. Borah and Rocky Mountain will collide for the fourth time this season and it'll be the most important showdown of the year. If you can't make it to the Ford Idaho Center we'll have all the action on sports radio 630 The Fan.

Borah beat Rocky Mountain 61-56 back in December but the Lions have dropped two in a row to the Grizzlies, 59-51 February 6th and then 72-58 at the District Tournament February 17th.

Borah is 21-3 and Rocky Mountain 22-3 and both teams are playing their best basketball of the season.

In first round games Thursday Borah was led by Austin Bolt who scored 17pts and had 15 rebounds for a huge double-double.

The Grizzlies were paced by Garrett Hall and Hunter Ranstrom each with 14 points. Briggs Ranstrom added 11 but Tyler O'Donnell, the teams leading scorer averaging 15 a game was held to just three points.  It has been that type of team effort all year that has paced Rocky to it's 22 wins.
