Ben wasn't a part of it because he was camping, but his teammates seemed to do just fine in his absence, cruising to a 50-21 victory over Roseville Team 6 at Brimhall Elementary in Roseville this afternoon. Big Blue got off to a fast start, leaping to a 14-0 early advantage and then cruising from there. The Roseville team was game but undermanned against Big Blue's superior size and athleticism.
That brings the team's record to 2-0. Ben will rejoing his squad next week for a grudge match against Irondale 6 next Saturday at 3 p.m. at Island Lake School in Shoreview. It should be a good one. As always, look to Mr. Dilettante for continuing coverage of north suburban 7-8 in-house basketball.
