Boys Basketball: Cards play Apollo with title on line
The Willmar boys basketball team can clinch at least a share of the Central Lakes Conference championship with a victory over St. Cloud Apollo tonight at Apollo.
The Cardinals and Rocori are both 11-4 in the CLC following the Spartans' 52-40 win over Alexandria on Thursday. Rocori plays St. Cloud Tech today at home.
Willmar last won a CLC title in 2007-08, when the Cards finished 17-1 and was co-champions with Tech.
The Cardinals have their work cut out for them. They have a 12-1 record at home this season but are 4-7 in road games. Willmar defeated Apollo 78-58 on Jan. 24 in Willmar.
But Rocori is no cinch against Tech, even at home. The Spartans are 8-3 at home this season and 5-5 on the road. Tech defeated the Spartans 72-60 on Jan. 24 at Tech.
