The Austin boys basketball team had its best offensive output and its biggest margin of victory of the season as it blasted Albert Lea (0-13 overall, 0-10 Big Nine) 90-50 in AL Friday.
The Packers (6-8 overall, 5-5 Big Nine) outscored the Tigers 56-22 in the second frame as eight players scored at least eight points for Austin. Zach Coffey led the way with 16 points.
“We’re just real happy with our guys,” Austin head coach Kris Fadness said. “Coffey was good all night to the basket and he was making some plays. Kyle Oberbroeckling played good in the second half, Noah Brehmer played better and Tate Hebrink gave us a spark. Connor Bollum got his first minutes in a long time and he really played well.”
