The basketball season finally tips for the Knoxville boys and girls squads tonight. After waiting an extra week the Panther girls will try to keep a long running streak alive…winning their opening game of the season. Knoxville has won its season opener for nine straight seasons…and will look to make it ten against Albia. The boys meanwhile will usher in the Clint Driftmeier era as Driftmeier takes over the varsity program. Driftmeier says the guys have been working well in practice and are ready to play a full game to see their progress. You can hear the play-by-play on AM 1320 KNIA starting at six tonight.
