WILLMAR —No. 7-rated Mankato East showed it is one of the teams to beat in Section 2AAA on Tuesday while rolling over Willmar 51-37 in girls basketball.

Both teams took 57 shots but the Cougars (13-3) made 23 to Willmar’s 16.

Willmar’s 28 percent shooting and a 24-8 disadvantage in turnovers spelled the difference.  

“East is a good team but we can stay with them if we play up to our potential,” said coach Dustin Carlson.
