The Mid-Prairie boy’s basketball team will travel to West Liberty tonight for their final conference game of the season.
The 8-12 Golden Hawks are coming off their loss to Washington on Tuesday and have lost their last four games in a row, while averaging 49 points per game.
Dayton Hall still leads the way for the Hawks with 206 points on the year.
West Liberty is 10-9, shooting 45.5 percent from the field and scoring 60 points per game.
Tyler Newsom and Kyle Miller are their leading scorers with a combined 549 points on the year, almost half of all of the points scored by West Liberty this year.
Mid-Prairie head coach Chris Kern said his team has to come out and play Mid-Prairie ball at the start to win against West Liberty.
“Well I think we better set the tempo right now at West Liberty on how we want to go into Regina Monday night,” Kern said. “It’s pretty important, you can’t have a first and third quarter like we had tonight otherwise you’re not going to be around long, so we have a lot of work on in practice to come out and be ready for West Liberty.”
