PHS fell behind by 20-plus points in the first half but cut that deficit to as low as five late in the second half. The Cardinals got 27 points from 7-1 senior center and D-I signee Owen Hamilton along with three-point baskets from guards Nick Simon, Luke Murphy, Joe Roosen, Brian Tayson and Pete Brookshaw during their comeback.
But key plays by Minnehaha's top-ranked freshman prospect, 6-2 guard Jalen Suggs, preserved the Red Hawks lead. PHS drops to 14-3 overall.
