Hunter Gamoke scored 29 points Friday as the Winona Winhawks boys’ basketball team defeated the Albert Lea Tigers 67-51 in Albert Lea.

Alik Smed led the Tigers with 13 points, while Kyle Ooms had 12.

Ooms also pulled down a team high 12 rebounds.

“Our big emphasis was stopping their big man,” Albert Lea coach Lucas Kreuscher said. “We played a lot of zone and tried to limit his touches. If we gave up anything it was three-pointers and they hit them.”

The Winhawks made eight 3-pointers on the night.

The Tigers conclude the season with a 6-18 overall record and a 3-15 record in the Big Nine.
