Detroit Lakes' senior guard Dustin Long had just six points Tuesday night in the Lakers' game against Park Rapids, but his last two points rang at a perfect time.


Like at the buzzer.

Long hit a running 10-foot field goal with time expiring to lift the home-team Lakers over the Panthers 46-44, halting a six-game skid and improving DL to 7-15 overall and 5-5 in the Mid-State Conference.
