The Cardinals claimed a decisive win on Monday, Dec. 3, which was much needed after the Cardinals picked up two losses in their opening week of play.
"Last night was a good opportunity for our kids to bounce back after a disappointing performance on Saturday against Fall Creek," Cardinals' coach Rob Bosshart said. "I was really happy about the resilience the guys showed and how they were ready to play with intensity and effort. Everyone got a significant amount of court time which is important for the development of our younger guys. It was a good win for us."
The Cardinals (2-2) will begin their Dunn-St. Croix Conference play on Thursday, Dec. 6, when they host the Colfax Vikings (3-0) at 7 p.m.
