The Albany Huskies boys' basketball team started their season 1-0 with a 71-66 overtime win at Long Prairie-Grey Eagle tonight.
While it was a non-conference game, the win was big in the sense that both teams are members of Sub-Section 6AA-North.
Up next: the Huskies travel to neighboring rival Melrose Area in a non-conference game next Friday, Dec. 7. It will be the season opener for the Dutchmen, who split the West Central North Conference series with Albany last year.
This year, Albany is a new member of the Granite Ridge Conference, although they compete with the Dutchmen in the same sub-section at playoff time.
