The Pine River-Backus boys’ basketball team opened the season against Cass Lake-Bena with an 81-70 loss on Thursday, Nov. 29, in Cass Lake.
Despite the loss, the Tigers had an important milestone and a admirable individual performance by guard Beau Howard. The senior came into the game needing 23 points to reach the 1,000-career point plateau, a feat only accomplished by six other players in PR-B history. Howard was able to put up 32 points, including going an impressive 10-for-10 from the free-throw line.
