The scoreboard didn't malfunction, which was a legitimate concern inside Osseo High School Tuesday, Jan. 18.

It had been nearly four years since the visiting side had outscored the Orioles in a boys basketball game, a streak that reached 40 games after Osseo beat Duluth East by six the previous Saturday.

Seniors Josh Pella and Kyle Zimmerman delivered the collective knockout blow, combing for 26 points and 24 rebounds.
