Henry Sibley began the game in a zone defense. They wanted to try to get Osseo out of sync early.

Jerrod David Berven found the basket early in the game for Osseo. He was able to beat his defenders off the dribble and fight his way to make baskets.

At halftime the score was Osseo 40 and Sibley 31.

As the second half got underway Sibley was able to knock down some quick shots. Sibley was able to attack the basket in the second half. They looked to wear Osseo down. Osseo looked to stick to their game plan by getting the ball inside and applying half court pressure.
