Girls basketball: Defense key in Card win at Brainerd

Email

BRAINERD — Tough defense helped the Willmar girls basketball team offset a poor shooting night and the Cardinals downed Brainerd 46-38 in a Central Lakes Conference game on Friday.

The Cardinals head into their Wild-Card Tournament game against Minnehaha Academy next week with a 5-3 overall mark, and they improved to 3-2 in the CLC.

Willmar allowed Brainerd just 12 first-half points and head coach Dustin Carlson said switching up defensive looks was the primary reason.
