GREENBUSH, Minn. - Devin Evavold scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead East Grand Forks Sacred Heart to a win over Badger-Greenbush-Middle River on Thursday.

Brenden Bethke added 15 points for the Eagles.
“We shot the ball really well and played good team defense,” said Sacred Heart coach Destry Sterkel. “Riley Wavra really stepped up for us today hitting those back-to-back threes coming off the bench. That was the game changer.”
