Jack Garmen in a game against East Grand Forks on Feb. 12. Garmen scored 19 points in Crookston's loss to Roseau.

The Crookston boys' basketball team fell 72-44 at Roseau in a Section 8AA clash Thursday night.

It was a rematch of a Jan. 19 game in Crookston, the Pirates' second game of the season, in which the Rams came away victorious, 75-65.

While January's game featured a sluggish first half for both teams, followed by a second-half explosion of 99 combined points, each of Thursday's two halves were even. Roseau (4-6, 2-2 Section 8AA) took a 35-23 lead at halftime and only extended it from there.

Jack Garmen (Jr.) led the Pirates (1-9, 0-9) with 19 points, while Carter Bruggeman (Sr.) added 12. 

UP NEXT: Crookston is at home to face Fertile-Beltrami (9-1) on Tuesday, Feb. 23 (7:30 p.m.).
