When I went back to western North Dakota for Christmas a few months ago, my family had questions about the Hillsboro-Central Valley basketball team. 

Most of my relatives are from New Salem, N.D., so Region 5 athletics is in their wheelhouse.

They don’t get to see a lot of H-CV basketball games but have become familiar with Burros head coach Elliot Rotvold and his crew because of their success the past few seasons. 

Oh, and a little bit because their favorite grandson and cool cousin works at Hillsboro’s weekly newspaper, but that’s beside the point. 

My 88-year-old grandmother is a big fan of Class B basketball. She always says it’s better to watch than that Class A stuff.

So, when H-CV suffered a 59-53 loss to Thompson on March 7 in the Region 2 championship game, I had to give her a call.
