The Albany girls' basketball team made quick work of Long Prairie-Grey Eagle last night in a home game against the former conference and section rival Thunder. Now 9-0 overall, the Huskies have a much tougher game tonight when they travel to Staples-Motley to face a very good 8-1 Cardinals team. Staples-Motley beat LP-GE 93-19 on Dec. 17 in Long Prairie.
At Little Falls last night, the Albany boys' basketball team improved to 8-2 overall with a 67-49 win over the Flyers (7-6, 3-3) in a Granite Ridge Conference game. The win helps Albany keep pace for first place in the GRC with a 4-1 record. Sitting in first is St. Cloud Cathedral and Zimmermann, both 4-0 each. Albany's next game is tomorrow, Saturday, at home in an evening non-conference contest with Sartell-St. Stephen. The Sabres are on a four-game losing streak but sit in a three-way tie for third place in the Central Lakes Conference at 3-2.
