Packers Clinch Share of Conference Title

16 Feb

Austin traveled to Rochester Friday night and used smothering defense to build a 25-10 halftime lead (and a second-half margin as large as 29 points) en route to a 53-38 win.

The Packers’ victory, combined with Winona’s 81-61 win over Rochester John Marshall, gives the Packers a three-game lead in the Big Nine standings with three games remaining, guaranteeing at least a share of their second straight conference title.

Here are the highlights:


The Packers, now 22-0 on the season, face Winona at home Tuesday and can wrap up the conference title outright with a win.
