KMS boys lose to pair of unbeaten teams

The KMS boys basketball team played its second and third-straight unbeaten team last week, losing at home to Renville County West last Tuesday, 62-57, and at Lac qui Parle, Thursday, 56-46.

The Saints, who dropped to 2-7 overall and in the Camden North Conference, did get Alex Call back from an injury he suffered in the season’s opening game.  It wasn’t quite enough to lift the Saints to the win, but it should give the team a big boost heading into the second half of the season.

This week, the Saints should have a great chance to break a currently five-game losing streak with a game at Dawson-Boyd, Tuesday (yesterday) and a game at home against MACCRAY, Friday...

Braves lose close games to Waska and SC

The Benson boys basketball team dropped two games last week to fall to 1-5 overall and 0-4 in the WCC.  The Braves, who have lost three-straight, fell to Minnewaska at home last Tuesday night, 50-37, and also lost to Sauk Centre at home, Friday, 53-46.

After averaging close to 70 points a game last year, the Braves are averaging only about 57.5 points a game this season.

“Teams have keyed on our three-point shooting and have done a good job of slowing us down,” coach Adam Jensen said.  “We have a lot of underclassmen that haven’t seen a whole lot of varsity experience, so getting them accustomed to the pace and level of the varsity game has taken some time.  We keep getting better every game. We just need to clean up a few things, especially on the defensive end, and start knocking down some shots.”
