The Benson boys basketball team ran into a strong Breckenridge team, Saturday, during the CASE-IH Holiday Tournament.  The Braves fell behind 59-19 by halftime and Breckenridge went on to an 88-36 victory.

The two games Friday were called off due to a terrorist threat phoned in from the Fargo-Moorhead area that night.  The call came during the first semifinal game between Breckenridge and MACCRAY, Friday night, forcing that game and the next game between ACGC and Benson to be cancelled and the entire BHS gym evacuated.

The Benson vs. ACGC game will be made up later this winter as a conference game, and there was no official winner to the Holiday Tournament.

Benson has two more tough games this week before the Christmas break.  The Braves are set to play at NLS, Thursday (tomorrow), and at Minnewaska Area, Friday....
