SEC race thickens

Four teams are fighting for the SEC conference in boys' basketball. Glenville-Emmons was unbeaten (10-0, 14-0) until falling to lowly Hope Lutheran. That loss tied Spring Grove (10-1, 11-6) atop the league. It also narrowed things up for Houston (8-2, 11-3) and Lanesboro (8-2, 12-4). It made Lanesboro's match-up with Spring Grove pivotal. The Burros entered winners of four straight. The Lions entered winners of seven straight. Something had to give and it was the guys from the Grove. Lanesboro snuck past their conference adversary 56-53. Lion star Aric Elton went generously unchecked. He scored 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. However, the Burros got solid contributions from Braden Hanson (15), Lucas Johnson (13), and C.D. Hanson (11). Statistically speaking, it was an evenly matched contest save for one thing: The Burros were able to connect on a much higher percentage of two-point buckets than the Lions. With a second loss by Spring Grove later in the week, the Burros jumped ahead two spots in the SEC standing to second, just one game behind Glenville-Emmons.
