Two more wins put Knights at 17-2
The Knights’ boys basketball team notched a pair of wins last week to improve their overall record to 17-2. They got an important victory, 59-41, over Parkers Prairie last Tuesday night and then defeated Wheaton/Herman-Norcross, 75-51, in a Pheasant Conference matchup. Both games were in Barrett.
This week, the Knights will travel to Twin Valley on Tuesday night to take on Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal (15-6) before returning home to play Ortonville (5-10) on Thursday night and Lac qui Parle Valley (14-5) on Friday night. This will be a big week for the Knights as they look to strengthen their grip on the top spot in the Section 6A South standings.
The Knights are currently in first place in the South Sub-section. Parkers Prairie, Hancock, and Ashby are trying to keep pace with the Knights for the top spot. Henning is well in front of the competition in the North Sub-section at the moment. The Knights are in great shape in the Pheasant Conference standings, well in the lead, but have some work left to do in order to claim the championship.
