Packers top Edina in Tip-Off Classic

9 Dec

The Austin Packers traveled to Minnetonka Saturday to participate in the Breakdown Sports Tip-Off Classic, a day-long basketball feast featuring most of the top teams in the state, and came away with a 66-62 win over Edina.

The Packers, ranked #2 in Minnesota’s Class AAA, got off to a quick start against the Hornets, who began the season ranked #2 in Class AAAA, but are currently #7. Austin led 14-4 before Edina was forced to call time out. The Packers never trailed, although the Hornets did make two runs to tie the score.

Joe Aase paced the Packers with 27 points, while Zach Wessels added 15, Collin Weisert 10, Tom Aase 7, Ajuda Nywesh 4 and Bet Lukes 3. Here are the highlights:

The Packers, 2-0,  visit Albert Lea Tuesday night to take on the 1-1 Tigers before hosting Rochester Mayo on Friday night in their home opener.

Update: Here is the recap in the Austin Daily Herald. Here is the Austin Post-Bulletin story.
