KASSON — It took a little while for the Packers to heat up, but when they got going they put away Kasson-Mantorville (1-1 overall) in an 88-54 win in their boys basketball opener on the road Saturday.

The No. 2 ranked Packers (1-0 overall) connected on 8 of their 11 three-point attempts in the second half as they rolled to a win.

“It was a typical first game,” Austin head coach Kris Fadness said. “We were a little sloppy in the first half, but we got going in the second half.”

Tom Aase had 18 points and eight rebounds for Austin and Zach Wessels had 17 points and five assists.
