The score continued to go back and forth throughout the first half. Neither team went on a run.

St. Louis Park turned the ball over throughout the first half. North was able to get layups off the turnovers.

At halftime the score was North 32, St. Louis Park 20.
As the second half got underway North continued to push the ball down the floor as they looked for layups.

North was able to frustrate St. Louis Park as they had a lot of turnovers and had trouble making shots.

North continued to play at the pace that they wanted to play in. They did a good job of taking St. Louis Park out of their game.

Even though St. Louis Park had trouble hitting shots that they put up they were not afraid to shoot the ball.

North was too quick for St. Louis Park. North came away with the 66-41 victory over St. Louis Park.
