Esko, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Esko boys' basketball team qualified for its first Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) Class AA tournament since 2003, and on Sunday morning learned they will play #3-seeded Hayfield in the quarterfinal round.

The Eskomos won the Section 7AA championship on Saturday night, with freshman Jaxson Turner hitting a buzzer-beating three-pointer to give his team a 64-63 win over Mora.

(26-4) Esko is one of three unseeded teams in the Class AA tournament, randomly drawing (22-7) Hayfield as a first-round opponent. That game is set for 8:00 p.m. on March 20 at Williams Arena in Minneapolis.
