Irish boys defeat St. John's, EV-W

On Tuesday, January 11, the Maple Lake boys’ basketball team hosted St. John's Prep, who the Irish defeated earlier in the season in the championship game of the Holiday Tournament. Both teams battled to the buzzer but the Irish came out on top, winning the game 46-38.
The Irish continued to struggle offensively, but the key to the Irish win was solid defense which was able to create points off of turnovers. In the second half the Irish adjusted by spreading the floor, which created more passing lanes that led to some easy baskets and a double-digit lead which the Irish were able to maintain to the end.
