Duluth East boys basketball coach Rhett McDonald, following his team’s four-point home victory over Hermantown on Tuesday night:

“Hermantown is a very dangerous team. I am thankful that we’re not in their section. That would be the last team that I would want to play when it comes to section playoffs, and I think that’s the reason they went to state last year. They’re fearless, and they have two very, very good basketball players in Conner Bich and Peter Soumis. We saw Soumis go off on us tonight, so a credit to them. I thought they played hard. Fortunately for us, we made a few more shots and got a few more stops than they did, but we’re very fortunate.”
