WILLMAR -- Brainerd hung with Willmar through two halves, then shaded the Cardinals in overtime to post a 60-56 win in Central Lakes girls basketball on Saturday. Not even 100 percent free-throw accuracy down the stretch was enough to prevent Willmar from going to 1-3 in league. Turnovers were part of Willmar's undoing. But Brainerd's Kayla Huether played a big role, too. The junior guard chucked in 28 points to offset 20 points by Willmar senior post Lisa Nielsen. Huether tallied 17 points in the second half and overtime.
