Hunter Scherr was a huge part of that. The senior guard was 6-of-12 from three and finished with 20 points to go along with two assists, one rebound and five steals. Drew Fearing also had 11 points and Lane Berberich finished with nine.“We had some hot shooting by Hunter Scherr and got them to turn it over in the first half to get a comfortable lead,” head coach Matt Hoelscher said. “Our intensity and ball movement on offense got us open looks, and we made them, which is something we have struggled with this year.”The win moved the Silverstreaks to 6-17 overall and to 2-10 in the Prairie Conference.“Our guys came ready to play, and I am proud of the way they responded from our loss to Parker’s Prairie,” Hoelscher said. “Their effort is their strength as basketball players and that showed tonight.”GAME STATISTICSROYALTON 4 32 – 36 OSAKIS        24 35 – 59 OSAKIS TOTALS – FG – 21-54; Three-point FG – 14-29; FT – 3-4; Assists – 11; Blocks – 1; Rebounds – 25; Steals – 14; Turnovers – 5 OSAKIS – Berberich – 9 points, 2 assists, 3 steals; Zach Weir – 2 points, 3 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal; Scherr – 20 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, 5 steals; Haden Hendricks – 4 points, 1 assist, 1 rebound; Luke Wolbeck – 4 points, 1 assist, 1 block, 10 rebounds, 3 steals; Fearing – 11 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 steal; Kolten Adolphsen – 3 points, 1 rebound; Kalib Schwardt – 2 points, 1 rebound; Preston Graham – 2 points, 2 rebounds; John Boogaard – 1 steal; Joseph Garcia – 2 points, 3 rebounds
