Girls Basketball: Irish split a pair
There is a clear division among girls basketball teams in the Lake Conference. Rosemount is part of the mixed-up middle. The Irish have tried to separate themselves but inconsistent results and equal matchups haven't let them break free. "Those games, like Burnsville and Eagan,...

Girls Basketball: Coming down to the end
With a week left in the regular season, first-year Rosemount girls basketball coach Sam McDonald still doesn't know how his team might land in the section seeding process. One reason is a mix of teams right in the middle of the pack, which is where the Irish find themselves. Another...

Boys Basketball: Lapses work against Irish in a pair of losses
The Rosemount boys basketball team has no misconceptions about where it stands this season. The Irish know what they are and know what they have to do. They also know they are dealing with their fair share of limitations. One of those limitations has been the team's size. Another...

Boys Basketball: Trying to figure it out

Boys Basketball: Making their own matchups
Admittedly, the Rosemount boys basketball team doesn't have much size compared to other teams it faces in the Lake Conference. Drawing the unenviable defensive matchup last week was Irish senior Karl Miranda. Miranda is listed as 6 foot on the team's roster. Last week against Chaska,...

Boys Basketball: Outside game missing for Irish
