Local Basketball Disrupted By Threatening Phone Call 16 Dec 17

Terroristic threats forced the cancellation of last night’s Benson-ACGC basketball tournament.

At 6:55 p.m., the Benson Police Department received a credible tip, and requested assistance from Swift and Grant County Sheriff’s Deputies, as well as State Troopers to evacuate the School. The individual responsible for the threat was taken into custody last night; law enforcement says there is no additional danger to the public, and the investigation continues.

Junior varsity players for Benson and Breckenridge will tip-off at 6:00 p.m. The ACGC and MACCRAY varsity teams will play at the same time.

The Breckenridge-Benson varsity game is set for 8:00 p.m.
