There was a basketball game scheduled between Eden Prairie and Park Center at Anoka-Ramsey Community College Saturday.
But the Eagles decided to put on a clinic instead.
Eden Prairie showed why it is No. 1 in the class 4A Minnesota Basketball News rankings by dismantling the Pirates 82-64 at the inaugural Jack Link's Minnesota High School Basketball Hall of Fame Winter Classic.
"We’ve grown up with those guys from Park Center, playing AAU ball together, so there's a little bit of a rivalry," said Eagles guard Drake Dobbs, who scored 31 points. "So this was a lot of fun."
It also was impressive, as the Eagles (15-0, 4-0) remained unblemished in the regular season by blowing out Park Center 46-20 in the first half and cruising to the win.
