The Isle Huskies boys basketball record slipped to 7-11 with losses to two Great River Conference teams last week.

The other scheduled game against Northland was canceled and will not be rescheduled.

The game against McGregor canceled earlier this season is set for Feb. 14, and the traditional second game of the season against Onamia was scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Pine City

It was a night of bombs when the Pine City Dragons hosted the Isle Huskies in a Great River Conference game on Feb. 5.

The teams combined for 20 3-pointers (10 each) and when the dust settled, the Dragons had an 18-point, 76-58 win over their guests.

Lucas Gross, John Kargel and Brandon Buehring combined for 41 of Isle’s total points, with each player turning in three 3-pointers.

Pine City had four players shoot in double figures.

Isle 26 32 58

Pine City 41 35 76

Scoring: Gross 17, Kargel 15, Buehring 9, BigBear 7, Remer 6, Hunt 4.


For the second time this season, the scheduled game between Northland and Isle’s boys basketball teams had to be canceled because of poor weather conditions. That game will not be rescheduled.

East Central

The Isle Huskies were hoping to move their record to .500 late last week with scheduled games against Northland and East Central – both teams with poor records. Instead, the Huskies game against Northland was canceled and the game against 1-13 East Central turned into a tough, 69-68 home loss.

Isle held several 9-point leads early on, but that lead was just one point by intermission. The second half was a tug-of war between the two squads, and ultimately was decided at the free-throw line where Isle made good on just 13 of 22 tries and East Central was 2-5.

Isle had three players score in double figures, including Eldayshun BigBear with 29, and John Kargel and Lucas Gross with 12 points each.

East Central also outscored Isle in 3-pointers, 27-15.

East Central 34 35 69

Isle 35 33 68

Scoring: BigBear 29, Kargel 12, Gross 12, Remer 8, Hunt 7.
