BBE (10-2, 20-4) is now a game ahead of HLWW (10-3, 17-7) in the loss column. The Jaguars can clinch a share of the conference title on Friday with a win over Eden Valley-Watkins and can then win the conference title outright with another win on Saturday over Kimball.

HLWW beat BBE 74-70 in overtime on Feb. 6 in Howard Lake in the first meeting.

BBE was 7-for-9 from three-point range in the first half with the seventh coming from Rodgers in the closing seconds that allowed the Jaguars to take a 52-37 lead at halftime.

The Lakers would get within three at 80-77 late in the game, but BBE sealed the win by getting a basket down low by Jackson Illies and going 10-for-10 from the free-throw line in the final two minutes.

Shane Weller drained four 3-pointers and followed Rodgers and Goodwin with 16 points.
