The Eden Prairie boys basketball team put up 50 first-half points against Waconia on their home court Tuesday night. The Eagles balanced that with 52 points in the second half, cruising to a 102-67 win over the Wildcats.
Sophomore Max Lorenson led the Eagles with 23 points in a game where a number of players saw action off the bench.
Thirteen players put up points for the Eagles, including freshman Nolen Anderson who came off the bench and drained three straight three-point shots, giving Eden Prairie a commanding 85-59 lead with 4:30 remaining in the second half.
This was Eden Prairie’s first win since head coach David Flom’s suspension on Dec. 8.
