Bye Night In LHC Play Gives Knoxville Girls Chance To Practice

It was a night off from games for the Knoxville Girls Basketball Squad last night…however the Panthers were in the gym preparing for their game against Grinnell this Friday. Coach Jim Utiermarkt says the focus is not necessarily about who the Panthers play next. He says they have been watching game video and hopefully they will see what they need to improve on. Utiermarkt adds the girls played better against Davis County on Friday night…however one key was a dry spell in the third quarter that Knoxville went nearly seven minutes without scoring. He said defensively the girls played better…and hopes that translates into improved play Friday night. Knoxville hosts Grinnell on Friday for the girls home opener of the season.
