A good defensive effort wasn't enough for the Detroit Lakes boys' basketball team, despite limiting the home-team Pequot Lakes to 53 points in Mid-State action Tuesday.


Unfortunately for the Lakers, their perimeter shooting went cold, which led to a 53-42 loss to drop them to 7-8 and 3-3 in the Mid-State Conference.
