Bruins run into Deacon buzz-saw

Shanley continued their winning streak of 44 game in a row, looking to be in mid-season form in the EDC opener for both teams. The Bruins turned the ball over too many times in the opening half, committing 16 first half turnover, a number that was their total for the game on Friday night at Moorhead. The Deacon pressure defense made life tough on South, as the Bruins did not get many clean looks at the basket. Meanwhile Shanley was red hot from the field, rolling up 51 first half points to cruise to a 51-18 halftime lead. In the second half things didn't get much better for the Bruins, although they kept fighting hard. Rachel Green was the only Bruin in double figure scoring with 11 points. The loss drops South to 0-1 in the EDC and the Bruins travel to Red River on Friday night.
