Hollenkamp (9.6 ppg, 40 three-pointers) and Dahlman (5.6 ppg, 110 rebounds) are called upon to shore up the middle and rebound hard each night. Stigen nailed 46 three-pointers and will help lead the defense at guard. Larson, coming off a season learning leadership as the Braham football varsity quarterback, takes over point from Vaughan. R. Braund adds athleticism in the backcourt. Positives for 2013 season: Head Coach Bob Vaughan– “With our limited numbers in the upper grades, we will be playing freshmen this season. We are very skilled for being so young. The boys will work hard to maintain our winning tradition.” Great River and Section 7AA Outlooks: Braham is on a 42-game winning streak in the Great River Conference and will be the favorites until another team can snap that run. Coach Vaughan foresees Hinckley, Rush City and Aitkin to field competitive squads this season. In Section 7AA, Coach Vaughan calls last year’s runner-up Esko to be the heavy favorite when March rolls around. The Eskomos have their three lanky junior shooters back who caused fits in the ‘12 section finals. Mora, who Braham travels to Dec. 7, and Moose Lake-Willow River also have athletes who could make a difference in the section brackets. “With our limited numbers in the upper grades, we will be playing freshmen this season.” — Head Coach Bob Vaughan Sports Schedule 2013 Braham Boys Basketball Dec. 4 Rush City Dec. 7 Mora Dec. 11 Hinckley-Finlayson Dec. 13 Ogilvie Dec. 18 Grantsburg Dec. 21 Barnum Dec. 27 St. Cloud Cath. vs. Pierz Dec. 28-29 St. Cloud Cathedral Tourney Jan. 4 Pine City Jan. 8 Aitkin Jan. 10 East Central Jan. 15 CHOF Jan. 18 Isle Jan. 22 Onamia Jan. 24 Rush City Jan. 29 Moose Lake/Willow Feb. 1 Hinckley-Finlayson Feb. 5 Ogilvie Feb. 8 Pine City Feb. 12 Aitkin Feb. 14 East Central Feb. 19 Isle Feb. 21 Legacy Christian Acad.
