The Crookston boys' basketball team fell to Bagley, 77-60, at home on Tuesday night in the second game of the season.
The Pirates fell to 0-2 after losing a tight game to Pelican Rapids on Monday.
"I think we were a bit sluggish and did not move the feet as well on both ends of the floor," said Crookston head coach Greg Garmen. "Overall, we were not crisp and sharp like we showed on Monday night."
Crookston didn't lead again after hitting the first shot of the game, while the Flyers ran their lead to as much as seven in the first half. The Pirates cut it to 39-35 at halftime, however.
Crookston scored to make it 39-38 shortly into the second half. But from there, Bagley was in control. The Flyers went on a 19-6 run and a 9-0 run to close out the game, while the Pirates came no closer than eight.
"From the first to second half, we did not shoot as well," Garmen said. "Not sure why that was, but that is how it goes, I guess."
Caden Osborn (Sr., F) scored 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, his second double-double in as many games. Carter Bruggeman (Jr., G) scored 11, while Easton Tangquist (Jr., G) and Jack Garmen (Jr., G) both had nine. Walker Winjum (Sr., G) added seven.
"We need to defend the dribble-drive much better than we have in these first two games," Garmen said. "Offensively, we need to attack the zones that people play a lot better than we did last night."
UP NEXT: Crookston heads north to play Warroad on Friday at 7:30 p.m. That game will come after the Pirate and Warrior girls' teams play at 6:00 p.m.
