MINOT—There's something about the Grant County girls basketball team this postseason and hitting spectacular shots. One night after senior Alexis Bentz walked-off the Coyotes with a long 3-pointer at the buzzer, it was teammate Taylor Roehl's turn during Friday night's semifinals of the North Dakota Class B state tournament at the Minot State University Dome. Roehl made a heave from past half court to end the first quarter against second-ranked Medina-Pingree-Buchanan and sank a 3-pointer from the top of the key in the final seconds of the second quarter.

You know hockey you have to learn how to skate. Football you’ve got to learn how to do all these things, but pretty much everyone knows how to throw a frisbee.”
