Prep report: Two Harbors' Ruberg scores 57 in win
Jayden Ruberg poured in a school-record 57 points to lead Two Harbors over visiting Carlton 89-80 in a Polar League boys basketball game Friday night.
Ruberg, a senior, scored 15 of his points from beyond the arc while breaking Scott MacDonald's Agates record of 54 points. MacDonald, a 1971 Two Harbors graduate, went on to play three years of basketball at West Virginia, then a season of football for the Mountaineers, who were coached at the time by legendary Bobby Bowden.

The host Thunderhawks won their fourth straight behind 21 points from Mya Roberts and 20 from Hannah DeMars.
