South St. Paul turning around boys basketball program in big way

In the last decade in conference, the Packers were a combined 6-138. This season South St. Paul believes they can win and they're doing just that.


Even in Minnesota, you have to root for these Packers. 

Over the last decade in conference, South St. Paul has six winless seasons and a combined record of 6-138. This year they are 11-5 overall and 4-2 in conference. 

Under new head coach Matt McCollister the players are buying into the up-tempo system and having unprecedented success. 

The Packers might be known as a hockey or football school, but this team is changing the culture one victory at a time.
