The Maple Grove boys basketball team got a scare, but they edged Brainerd 53-49 in the Section 8AAAA quarterfinals Tuesday night.
Many No. 1 vs. No. 8 seed games are mismatches, but this one was a battle all the way. Brainerd led the top-seeded Crimson by two at halftime and it remained close throughout.

Nate Adams scored 22 to lead Maple Grove in scoring.

The Crimson will face St. Michael-Albertville in the semifinals Saturday at 10 am. The game will be played at St. Cloud State University.
