By Anthony Drew
News-Review Asst. Editor

The Three Lakes Bluejays boys basketball team dropped two games last week after a 79-47 loss to Crandon in the Northern Lakes Conference (NLC) Thursday and a 54-44 loss to Prentice Friday.
Three Lakes coach Jack Wales said Crandon is an athletic team with a lot of speed on the squad.
“To win, you have to take care of the ball, make the most of your possessions and limit their possessions,” he said. “We did a poor job on all three aspects. We turned the ball over 27 times, and were out-rebounded by 10 boards.”
