HAMILTON n Twenty and 0 has a nice ring to it.

That's how far the Dillon Beavers pushed their undefeated mark on Saturday when they won the Southwestern A boys' divisional basketball tournament with a 48-40 win over Anaconda.

The Beavers emerged unscathed and earned a berth to the state tournament in Belgrade March 8-10.

With the loss, Anaconda will face a challenge game from Stevensville (12-10). The Yellowjackets trumped Frenchtown (14-7) in the consolation game earlier Saturday.

The challenge game will likely be Monday in Butte.

Anaconda ended the tournament at 11-10 on the season.

Dillon 48, Anaconda 40

The quarterback turned cager who engineered Dillon's run to the state title in football in the fall scored 19 points on Saturday to lead the Beavers to the Southwestern A crown.

Dillon trailed Anaconda throughout the first half, before exploding on a 19-3 run in the third quarter.

McRae had 13 of his points in the second half.

Dana Ori added 14 points for the Beavers.

Anaconda got 16 points from league-leading scorer Tyler Hurley and 11 from Steve Antonich.
