Girls Basketball: Willmar outlasts Hutchinson in opener

Email

WILLMAR -- Since there are no exhibition games in girls basketball, the season opener is like a shakedown cruise.

Willmar and Hutchinson hoisted anchor Saturday night in rough seas. Leaks were detected but the Cardinals proved marginally more seaworthy and sailed to a 41-37 win against a section foe.

Anne Dunham appears poised for a big senior season. The 5-foot-11 center hit a three-pointer from above the key 3:33 into the game for the first Willmar score of the new season.
