Boys basketball: Cardinals freeze up


WILLMAR — Just when the Willmar’s was cruising down victory highway with a 12-point lead, all four tires went flat and the Brainerd bus zipped by to grab an unlikely 70-64 Central Lakes Conference win.

The Warriors (4-0, 7-0) outscored the Cardinals (2-3, 5-5) 20-2 over the game’s last 10 minutes.

The Cardinals perhaps consumed their ammunition in the action-packed first half which ended 38-all.
