Boys basketball: Cardinals advance to 2AAA semis


WILLMAR — The Willmar boys basketball team has had a wavy ride through its 2012-13 season.

The Cardinals opened the season with four straight losses, then they won five in a row. Then they lost three, then won three. You get the picture.

The streaky Cards lost four of five to end the regular season and faced a Section 2AAA first-round game against Hutchinson, which downed Willmar by three points in the season-opener.
