The Isle Huskies boys basketball team bought their overall record to 2-0 with wins over Northland and Ogilvie last week.

The Huskies were scheduled to host three Great River Conference games during the second week of December, including East Central, Onamia and Hinckley/Finlayson.

Northland

The Isle Huskies boys basketball season opened with a road-game, 82-79, overtime win over the non-conference Northland Eagles on Dec. 3. The teams combined for 161 points, including 21 3-pointers.

Each team had three players score 18 points or more. Eldayshun Big Bear, Willie Stalker and Teagen Haggberg each had 18 points for the Huskies, while Alec Wake had 24 points, followed by 18 points each from Cameron Wake and Carson Johnson for the Eagles. Brandon Buehring also scored in double figures for the Huskies.

The Eagles had a 6-point league by intermission, but Isle came back in the second half to tie the score in regulation time.

The game was decided by a free-throw by Stalker and a tip-in bucket credited to Haggberg with under 10 seconds remaining.
