  When the Upsala and Long Prairie-Grey Eagle girls basketball teams first took the court this season, it was a back and forth battle throughout and required a buzzer beating three-pointer in overtime to end it in the Cardinals’ favor. Their second meeting felt far too similar. Upsala came to town...
