"They were really keying on him down low," Ellsworth coach Markus Okeson said. "Once we moved him to the perimeter, it opened things up for himself and his teammates."

In spite of a slow start, Ellsworth wound up shooting 52 percent from the floor in the first half while building a 15-point lead. It never led by less than 10 points the rest of the way.

Osakis 62, New York Mills 54: The unbeaten Silverstreaks proved it's not about how you start the game, but how you finish it. Osakis (30-0) used a late 12-point run to pull away from New York Mills (21-6) for the victory.

Kendall Proell's three-pointer and Wade Lang's free throw and layup gave the Silverstreaks a 56-49 lead with 2:30 remaining.

"We finally started to get out and run like we can," Lang said. "Once we got up on them, they started breaking down."

New York Mills tied it at 49 on Erik Peeters' jumper with six minutes left, but didn't score again until only 1:37 remained.

"We don't start that great," Lang said. "We're a second-half team."
