The Lyle-Pacelli boys basketball team made an early adjustment that paid off as it beat LeRoy-Ostrander 59-45 in Pacelli Thursday.

The Cardinals (1-3 overall, 1-2 SEC) took an 11-3 lead to start the game as they ran a box and one on LP’s Noah Jiskra.

“We had to figure out how to attack it, but we outscored them after that,” LP head coach Scott Koenigs said.
