Published 9:26 pm Thursday, January 9, 2020

The Blooming Prairie boys basketball team stayed unbeaten by the skin of their teeth as they edged out Grand Meadow (9-4 overall) 54-53 in GM Thursday.

Gabe Hagen had 15 points for BP (7-0 overall) and Colt Landers led GM with 20 points.

“Shooting was a struggle again and we turned the ball over too easily, but we again escaped with a win,” BP head coach Nate Piller said. “We didn’t manage the clock really well at the end and we were fortunate enough to have the lead that we did. We’ll take the win and count our blessings.”
