BELGRADE — The Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa girls basketball team is on a hot streak.

Entering Friday’s Central Minnesota Conference game against Howard Lake-Winsted-Waverly, the Jaguars won their previous six contests and were winners in nine of their last 11.

BBE pushed its streak to seven in a row after a 67-62 victory Friday from BBE High School.

The hosts sank 29 of their 47 attempts from the line and had more foul shots than field goal attempts (42). While the Jags relinquished a season-high 62 points, they reached the 65-point mark for the fifth time this season.

Capped by a strong drive from senior guard C.J. Decker, the visitors used an 11-2 run to go ahead 17-10 midway through the first half. However, BBE turned the game around on the defensive end. The home team forced Laker turnovers on six straight possessions.

The Jaguars went up 21-17 following an 11-0 surge. After a basket inside from junior forward Karissa Jones and a pair of free throws from freshman guard Abby Berge, Jenna Dingmann was responsible for the rest of the push. The senior forward scored on a lay-up in transition, two from the foul line and added a 3-pointer.

Dingmann had the team’s only makes from downtown as the Jags were only 2-for-15 from three-point land. The home team did most of its damage inside of the arc, going 16-for-27 from two-point territory. Dingmann finished with a Jags-best 22 points on 5-for-11 shooting from the field and 10-for-12 from the free-throw line.

Following a Dingmann floater in the lane, BBE built its largest cushion of the first half at 28-22 before going into halftime with a 32-27 lead.

Each team scored 35 points in the second half. The Jaguars shot better in the final 18 minutes, going 9-for-19 from the floor to preserve the victory.
