LITTLETON -- The Dakota Ridge Eagles boxed out the
Columbine Rebels in a Pink Out, Breast Cancer Awareness basketball game on Wednesday night.
In the student organized event, the Eagles and the Rebels came out for a pumped up, packed house for a 5A basketball game. Early in the game the Eagles were able to box the Rebels out, pulling down rebounds from outside shots.
The team also prevented the Rebels from being able to drive the hoop. Dakota Ridge's Devante Jones had first quarter and game, finding lanes inside to drive the hoop, netting rebounds, and hitting his outside shots.
At half, the Eagles lead the Rebels 30-18.
The second half was a similar story; the Eagles were able to stick to their game plan and shut down the Columbine offense.
In the end, Dakota Ridge came out on top 73-40 for the home win.
