BOYS BASKETBALL: Minster tops St. Marys in half-court battle

February 12, 2012

 

MINSTER — Offensive rebounds and easy baskets meant everything in a low-possession, low-shooting percentage contest between Minster and St. Marys on Saturday night.

“In a game that we knew was going to be tough and low possessions, a 4-0 or a 6-2 run was huge in this game and we had a couple of those in the third quarter,” Minster head coach Mike Lee said.
