VCC goes down in semifinal nail-biter, finishes fourth

by Tom Coombe -

A furious comeback came up just a little bit short, and the Vermilion Ironmen's state title and national tournament hopes were dashed Saturday afternoon at Coon Rapids.

The community college basketball team trimmed a 12-point gap to one with just a minute to go, but the Ironmen wouldn't score again and Akeem Smith nailed two key free throws to ice Rochester's 81-77 victory in a sloppy but entertaining state semifinal,

Vermilion lost 78-70 to Central Lakes in Sunday's third-place game and finished 18-12 overall.

The Ironmen looked good for half of the semifinal, a rematch of last year's title tilt, and grabbed a 45-39 lead by halftime in part by forcing 10 Rochester turnovers.

Momentum shifted in the second half as VCC coughed the ball up three times and a Malik Jones three-pointer gave Rochester its first lead at 52-50.

Ironmen advance to state semifinals

by Tom Coombe -

It wasn't pretty, but the Vermilion Ironmen slogged through the mud and emerged late Friday afternoon with a berth in the state semifinals.

A 15-2 run midway through the second half proved critical, and four Ironmen scored in double figures as they outlasted Riverland 82-72 in a community college basketball state tournament quarterfinal at Coon Rapids.

Vermilion, which will meet defending champion Rochester in a 2 p.m. semifinal Saturday, survived a foul-filled contest in which six players were disqualified - three from each side.

Freshman Bradlee Lewis knocked down a three-pointer that capped the game-deciding run and put the Ironmen up 62-52 with eight minutes left. From there, it was the survival of the fittest as the Ironmen never allowed Riverland to get closer than six points the rest of the way.
