— A promising start could not keep Janesville Craig from setting a boys basketball record it did not want to have.

Craig High jumped out to a 7-2 lead at Madison La Follette on Friday night. The lead did not last for long, and the Lancers eventually pulled away to a 68-45 Big Eight Conference victory.


The loss put the Cougars at 0-12 in the Big Eight and 0-15 for the season. The 15 losses are the most any Craig team has ever suffered in a season.


La Follette improved to 5-7 and 7-7.


The Lancers erased the early five-point deficit by switching from a zone to a man-to-man defense.


Senior guard Bret Bates led the Cougars with 11 points, including one of two Craig three-pointers.


The Lancers countered with eight three-pointers, including seven in the first half, which ended with La Follette up, 36-21.


Jon Dybevik led the Lancers with 18 points, including four three-pointers. Maher Hakim added 15 points for the winners.
