Ten points.

That's what currently stands between the Byron boys basketball team being undefeated instead of its current record of 4-2.

"Frustrating," head coach Kyle Finney said.

The bright side is that the Bears continue to play tough and improve and showed that during a 73-61 home win against Lourdes Dec. 22.

Four Byron players finished in double figures.

"It was a great atmosphere in the gym that night," Finney said. "There were a lot of alumni, so our kids wanted to perform well for them."

And they did.

Bjorn Knutson scored a team-high 27 points, including two dunks, while Michael Coble added 21, Kaden Koski tallied 11 and Nick Brown finished with 10.

Caleb Christenson ended the night with four points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals.

"We continue to get better, but still have a ways to go," Finney said.

The Bears squared off against other elite competition last week in the Rotary Tournament. Results will be published in the next edition of the Byron Review.
