The Isle boys basketball team dropped two more conference games last week, bringing their overall record to 2-13 with two games remaining in the regular season.
When a team, which is near the bottom of the conference standings and is missing their top scorer, goes up against the top team in the league, the outcome is fairly predictable.That is what happened on March 2 when the Isle Huskies boys basketball team hosted the conference leading East Central Eagles.
Isle was blown out of the game in the first half when East Central built a 51-point lead. The Jags called off the dogs in the final period, and won, 99-36.
The Eagles scored 43 field goals. The Huskies’ had 11, including just three buckets in the first half.

The Isle Huskies stuck with the visiting Hinckley/Finlayson Jaguars during the first half of their conference game on March 4, but an eight-minute scoring drought during the second period allowed the Jags to build a 24-point lead before Isle mounted a comback to lose by 10, 58-48.
