Detroit Lakes boys rout Park Rapids in basketball

Email News Alerts

The first scoring play for the Detroit Lakes boys' basketball team was a good omen of how Friday night's game was going to go in Park Rapids.


The play started on a nice pass from sophomore guard Brian Labat to junior forward Josh Stalberger, with the end result being a slam dunk --which ironically was DL's chance to win the game.

The Lakers (7-7) lambasted the home-team Panthers 80-39, with six DL players hitting double digits.
