Running the show

Isle junior Ale Big Bear has worked her way into the starting line-up as the Huskies point-guard.

After two more conference losses the Isle girls basketball team record stood at 1-15 entering the final week of the season.

East Central

If the goal for the Isle Huskies was to do better against the East Central Eagles than their 45-21 loss earlier this season, they accomplished that when they lost by half that margin, 39-27, on March 2.

The game was as close as the score would indicate. Both teams shot 19 percent from the field, including a combined total of seven buckets in the second half, and the squads combined for 45 turnovers.

The game may have been decided by these two statistics: Isle scored just seven points during a 20-minute stretch, and the Eagles made good on 15 of 20 free-throws, compared to 5-10 from the Huskies.
