On Feb. 11 Osseo and Robbinsdale Armstrong went up against each other in a boys’ basketball game.

Osseo started the game in a zone defense. They wanted to make Armstrong take deep shots.

Osseo started out slow on the offensive end. They were not able to come up with shots early.

Armstrong did a good job of moving the ball down the floor and making baskets in transition. They also looked to take time off the clock.

The score went back and forth throughout the first half. Because of the zone defense that both teams were playing neither team took a lot of shots.

Armstrong’s Sean Burns came up with mid-range jump shots and layups. His teammates did a good job of getting him the ball in spots where he could shoot it.

Osseo’s Elliot Kane came up with mid-range jump shots and layups.

Burns did a good job of attacking the basket and getting to the free throw line and was able to make his free throws.

At halftime the score was Armstrong 33. Osseo 25.

As the second half got underway Osseo looked to get the ball into the hands of Marmar Hughes.

Hughes came up with mid-range jump shots and layups. The defense had a hard time of slowing him down.

Armstrong came up with huge shots in the second half. Osseo had trouble slowing down their shooters.

Osseo continued to struggle to shoot the ball in the second half. Even though they struggled to shoot it they kept on shooting it.

Armstrong was too much for Osseo. Armstrong came away the 69-54 victory over Osseo.

The leading scorer for Osseo was Kane with 17 points and Mar Mar Hughes with 11 points.

The leading scorers for Armstrong were Burns with 15 points, and Nolan with 12 points.
