The Perham boys basketball team got up early and kept adding to their lead in a 80-37 blowout at Crookston to open the season.

"We played pretty well for the first game," Head Coach Dave Cresap said. "Friday's game versus Pelican Rapids will tell how good we are at this point."


The Jackets' fast start, thanks to an aggressive full-court press, had the game in hand early as Perham jumped on top 21-4. At the break, Perham led by 36 points, 51-15.
