Old Abes handle Huskies in boys basketball crosstown showdown

Jan. 9—Fresh off of a win over a red-hot River Falls team, the Eau Claire North Huskies welcomed the Eau Claire Memorial Old Abes to the Doghouse for a boys basketball crosstown showdown. Memorial, however, put to bed any hopes of an upset early, crushing North 68-42 to stay unbeaten in conference play.

It was a complete effort on both ends for the Old Abes. Memorial moved the ball well to create open shots and rarely gave North clean looks to shoot from. Combine that with a thorough job on the glass, Memorial controlled the game for almost all 36 minutes.
