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
Sometimes in sports, match-ups just work against a team. The Rosemount boys basketball team had won seven of its past nine games when it prepared to play Apple Valley last week. But the streaking Irish can't seem to solve the Eagles' attack, and it has Rosemount coach Mike Manning...

Girls Basketball: A tough stretch
Approached this week to discuss his team's recent games, Rosemount girls basketball coach Sam McDonald was obviously disappointed. The Irish lost, 74-62, last week at No. 5 Chaska and Tuesday at No. 8 Eastview, 65-62, to make it three losses in a row. Disconcerting, yes.

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,...

Girls Basketball: Break proves useful, and comes at perfect time
Rosemount girls basketball coach Sam McDonald knows there is a fine line when it comes to the 18-day break the Irish had between games. After a tough loss Dec. 19 at Lakeville North, Rosemount's schedule offered a unique rest. The Irish weren't playing in any holiday tournaments,...
