Austin had to fight through some challenges to pick up two conference wins. Last Friday in Winona the boys won 77-64. Tyler Tupy sparked a big run in the second half on his way to a career high 12 points. Tyler filled a void left by Both Gach not playing most of the second half with an eye injury. Here is a link to the Daily Herald article on the game.
On Monday night the boys won a grind it out type of game vs. Mankato West 66-52. There was a great crowd on hand for Paint the Gym Pink night. Kyle Oberbroeckling had 10 points, five rebounds and two blocks for the Packers.
The Packers are on the road for their next two games. Thursday night Austin travels to Owatonna. The Huskies are 11-3 overal and are right behind Austin in the conference standings. Friday night will be in Faribault.
