Dogfight in the conference

The Jaguars provide defense against HL-W-W's senior guard Maggie Miller, who knocked down multiple three-pointers to help counter B-B-E's strong inside game in the first half.

Wow! The B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team won 73-71 in overtime tonight against Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted. The score at the end of regulation was 66-66 after the Lakers scored from the right block with two seconds on the clock. The game featured two second-place teams in the Central Minnesota Conference and had the makings of a dogfight from the very beginning. Both teams went hard to the basket and were not afraid to take outside shots when seeing an opening.

The win raised B-B-E's record in the Central Minnesota Conference to 4-1; they are 10-2 overall and have their biggest game of the season on the horizon when they travel to Eden Valley-Watkins next Tuesday, Jan. 19. The Eagles sit in a virtual tie for second place with the Jaguars.

HL-W-W fell to 4-11 overall and 3-2 in the CMC.
