Boys basketball: Templin, Rocori sink Cardinals


COLD SPRING — Other than the final score, the entertainment was worth the trip for Willmar fans who headed out on a frostbitten Thursday night.

The wind chill beyond the Rocori gym streamed arctic-like but inside the heat was on.

Willmar came from 16 down the first half to lead by 7 in the second, 63-58.

Rocori roared back. The Cardinals led 77-74 when 6-foot-2 senior Zach Templin hit a three-pointer to tie it with 1:10 left.
