Austin lost a close one to 7th-ranked Minneapolis Washburn Thursday night, dropping a 57-53 contest.
Plagued by foul trouble in the first half, the Packer boys hung tough against the Millers , trailing just 26-25 at halftime. The Pack got off to a strong start in the second half, building a small lead, before a Washburn run put them out front by double digits. A valiant rally brought the Pack to within two points in the last 30 seconds, but they couldn’t convert on their last possession and were forced to foul with two seconds left. The resulting free throws led to the final four-point margin.
And now to the highlights…
The Packers’ next scheduled game is Saturday night in Red Wing, weather permitting.
Update: Due to the snowstorm, the Red Wing game has been postponed. The Packers return to action Tuesday night in Faribault.
