Girls basketball: Byron upsets No. 7-ranked Lourdes, 43-39

Byron capitalized on poor shooting by Rochester Lourdes, and the Bears notched a 43-39 upset win in an HVL Conference girls basketball game Saturday at the Lourdes gym.

It was the first loss of the season for Lourdes, which is 2-1 and was ranked No. 7 in the Class AA state poll last week. Byron improved to 4-2 overall.

Byron pulled away at the end from a game that was tied 20-20 at halftime and was close throughout.

Lourdes shot just 25.5 percent from the field, a number coach Myron Glass simply called "terrible." Byron shot better at 37.5 percent.

Betsey Daly had a double-double for Lourdes with 12 points and 10 rebounds.


Lourdes is home Tuesday against Goodhue.
