The Detroit Lakes boys' basketball team is back to where they finished their season last year -- the Section 8-3A championship game.


The second consecutive trip back to the title game was thanks in due to a 39-point second half, which enabled the North top-seeded Lakers (21-7) to snap a 25-25 halftime tie against the South's No. 2 seeded Alexandria (10-16) for a 64-52 win at St. Cloud State University Saturday.
