Dear Twolves fans,

On March 31 at 2pm-3pm our group "Living Waters" has one hour of free "Court Time" on the Target Center floor. Then a "clinic" will be held from 3pm-4pm with Timberwolves staff for our kids along with another group. So we have 1 hour for our group and one hour of "clinic" time for our kids.

The Twolves play Seattle that night--if you want tickets I can get you $22 tickets for $12 (special discount for this game!) Just let me know and send your check to me ASAP made out to Spencer Tiernan.

I will also be picking up the tee shirts that were ordered when I go down and will be getting them to their owners ASAP. Scott Crump will be taking the Fargo t shirts up with him.

MORRIS NOTE: We should perhaps look into car pooling as a group (i.e. Zierkies, Bakers, Tiernan's, Thielkies, Haugen's, Oddegaards) just let me know what you think.

If you received this e-mail you can go with us to be a part of this "court time" experience even if you did not attend the Laker game.

Any questions just let me know,
Spencer

Also--you don't have to go to the game to be a part of our "court time". Some of you in the Cities might just want to stop by for some hoops!

*********************

Hello--we've arranged a great deal on an exciting Timberwolves/Lakers basketball game this upcoming March. This could be a great opportunity to see an NBA game at a resonable price. No money is needed to get signed up but I do need a phone call or e-mail to record the # of tickets you'll need. Please contact me as soon as possible. Details are below. Feel free to share this info with anyone you think might be interested.

Thanks,
Spencer

    Owls fall to defending champs Morris Sun Tribune Published Sunday, March 18, 2007
    "Fulda held the Hancock girls basketball team to 13 second half points and the Owls fell to the defending champions in the Class A title game 42-34 Saturday at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
    The Owls finished the season 26-4. Hancock players Tara Thielke, Bree Holleman and Jenny Noordmans were selected to the Class A All-Tournament Team.
    Against Fulda, Holleman scored all 11 of her points in the first half to help the Owls take a 21-17 lead at the break. But Fulda started the second half with a 7-0 run and outscored Hancock 9-1 in the first seven minutes for a 26-22 edge.
    Morris Sun Tribune Talk About It Icon Add a comment Fulda led 28-22 when Noordmans and Thielke hit back-to-back 3-point shots to tie the game with 8:55 remaining.
    Fulda answered with consecutive baskets to take a 32-28 lead, but Thielke's steal and two free throws with 2:24 left pulled the Owls within a basket.
    Fulda's Sam Raddle hit a key 3-pointer 20 seconds later for a five-point lead, and Fulda hit 7 of 10 free throws in the final 1:10 to seal the game.
    Fulda finished the season 28-3."

    Sal's comments: Hey, you made it to the state tournament! Everything that happened throughout was just "bonus points". You gotta pat yourselves in the back for making it this far!

    "Wolves defeat Lakers 96-86", from Star Tribune....

    ...They also need to show that games such as Friday's -- the easy ones to peak for, the sort that has librarians in Section 240 painting their faces and screaming themselves hoarse -- aren't the exceptions. After a 2-4 whoops-a-daisy had the Wolves coming into March like lambs, they want to prove that, with their bold talk of long playoff drives, they aren't lyin'...

    "Mailman doesn't deliver in Minnesota", from sportsnetwork...

    ...Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Troy Hudson was a major catalyst off the bench, scoring 19 points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 96-86 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at the Target Center.

    Kevin Garnett led the way with 20 points and 13 rebounds as the Timberwolves won for just the second time in five games. Sam Cassell and Latrell Sprewell chipped in 17 and 16 points, respectively, as Minnesota beat the Lakers for the third straight time...

    "Lakers fail to capitalize on Malone's return vs. Timberwolves", from CBS sportsline.....

    ...The crowd of 20,391 was the largest ever at Target Center, and the atmosphere felt a little like a playoff game. It was pretty important for both teams, too, with Minnesota needing to maintain its two-game lead over San Antonio in the Midwest Division and Los Angeles looking to re-establish Malone in the lineup before the postseason....

    Post-Game: Testimony Report from Living Waters Group

    Spencer had the opportunity to meet E.B. (T-Wolf) unexpectedly while waiting at the Downtown Target prior to the game. Also, he saw Kobe at the City Centre Mall too! After the caravan left the game, one family from our local church had an unexpected car problem. Their van's serpentine belt came out, but PRASIE GOD there happen to be a mechanic in the scene in "Midnight" to put the belt! Unfortunately, this family didn't come home till a quarter till 4am-Saturday!

Congratulations Tigers for an awesome season! This was their first h.s. apprearance in the State Tournament since 1994. It was fun listening to the game "live" from the local radio while working at the group home. The residents and I had fun cheering while eating supper and after!

    NDSU Vs. Gophers

    Gophers Wins Season Opener Sat, Nov 19th 2005 (Kare 11)
    "Vincent Grier's impersonation of Vince Carter provided plenty of flash, but it was Minnesota's defense that made the difference in their season opener against North Dakota State.
    Grier had 21 points, seven rebounds, four steals and one monster dunk to lead the Golden Gophers to a 70-57 victory over North Dakota State on Friday night.
    Moe Hargrow added 14 points and seven assists for the Golden Gophers (1-0), who had 14 steals and scored 24 points off turnovers.
    "They did a good job of changing defenses and really got us off balance," Bison coach Tim Miles said.
    Mike Nelson led the Bison with 15 points and Brett Winkelman had 12 rebounds.
    With seven players on their roster from Minnesota, the Bison (0-1) played inspired basketball in the early going.
