From start to finish, it was all Detroit Lakes.

It was as simple said as done by the Detroit Lakes girls' basketball team, which steamrolled over the visiting Staples-Motley Cardinals 72-37 Friday night inside Ralph Anderson Gym.


The win keeps the Lakers undefeated in the Mid-State Conference at 7-0 and improves them to 17-2 overall, with three more games against conference opponents remaining on the schedule.
