Tigers short on numbers, long on heart

The Dupree boys basketball team earned its first victory of the year on January 7 against Wakpala by a score of 56-54. The win was hard-fought by the Tigers, who have dropped a couple of close contests during the 0-7 opening run of games.

Dupree has one of the smallest rosters in Class B, with just enough players to fill out a starting lineup and have a few spots on the bench, but the boys have remained committed to finishing the season together.

First year head coach Dusti LaPlante leads Dupree. She is preaching good attitudes and hard work to the boys and believes attitude and hard work will be big factors this season.
