Jaguars take apart Pierz in boys' basketball action!

The Jaguars ran the Pioneers right off of the floor tonight.

Final score in the home boys' basketball game tonight: B-B-E 67, Pierz 35. Way to go! The Jaguars led 46-16 at halftime. By the time there was 8:30 left on the clock in the first half, the Jaguars had doubled up Pierz with a 24-12 lead. With 3 minutes before halftime, the Jaguars led 35-16.

I got caught "looking" at what ended up being one of the most beautiful slam dunks you could imagine...some time around 2 minutes left in the first half, James Kuefler took the ball nearly the length of the court, leaped up at the basket and dunked the ball. It was what I labeled a "soft" dunk that didn't rip the back board apart but simply got the job done and got the ball through the rim.

The route was on!

Hopefully the next time he does that...the videocamera will be rolling!

Pierz drops to 13-11 overall and 8-5 in the Central Minnesota Conference with the loss.

At Long Prairie, three Jaguar wrestlers made it to the championship match in the Section 5A individual tournament: Tyler Tensen, Josey Tensen and Patrick Rooney. Many others are still in contention in the wrestle back brackets.

Here's the beginning of the pregame drills!

Tomorrow will be an exciting day for sure!
