  • Lakeview 59, YME 55
    The Lakers just barely eked out a win over the Yellow Medicine East boys basketball team at the Epseland Gymnasium on Tuesday night.
    After being plagued with fouls in the first five minutes of gameplay, the Sting turned themselves around, reversing several of the wrongs from the two previous games of the season, including a more consistent defense and [ much more ball time ]. YME were even ahead of Lakeview by 15 points when the first half buzzer rang.
    Despite the turnaround, Lakeview ended coming from behind to win by just four points.
    Logan DeBlieck had a tremondous game, earning a coveted double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds. Chase Ricther also earned double digits with 11 points, followed by Tyson Velde with eight points and ten rebounds.
