The Knoxville Boys Basketball Squad has shown one thing to Panther fans this season. They are not going to back down from anyone. The Panthers have seen double digit deficits only to come back in those games. In the last game, Knoxville was down by as many as 17 points to Chariton only to come back and take the lead, but lose the game in the last 15 seconds. Coach Clint Driftmier says that is one thing he really like about his team is they simply will not quit. Driftmier says guys like Erik Ryan who made big shots in the Chariton game along with C.J. Wright who was also instrumental in the Knoxville comeback again the Chargers are great to coach. Knoxville hopes to continue to take steps toward improvement against Grinnell on Tuesday.
