Both the Grand Rapids Thunderhawks and the DeLaSalle Islanders pride themselves on playing strong, in-your-face defense, however, it was the Islanders success on both ends of the floor that lifted them to a 67-44 victory on Thursday afternoon at the Target Center in Minneapolis in the Minnesota State Class AAA Tournament.

"That was a meat grinder out there. That's a great defensive team. They do a super job of building a wall around the basket and don't let you crack through it," Grand Rapids head coach Dan Elhard said. "I think you probably could make copies of that tape and sell it for how to play team defense at the high school level. They were superb on defense and they get you off your game. We weren't able to get penetration like we normally can from Austin Pohlen and made it real tough to get in and out of the block. When we did, they were physical and tournament a time they let you play like that. We just weren't able to be our aggressive selfs going to the basket."
