The remnants of the first winter storm of the season has cost Knoxville and Newton the match up tonight in high school basketball. Due to Newton cancelling classes, and their policy of no activities if school is closed due to weather, the two schools must wait until after the first of the year to face each other. That now completes the 2012 portion of the schedule for the Knoxville boys and girls basketball squads. The girls will enter the 2013 portion of the season with a 3-4 record and 1-1 in the Little Hawkeye Conference, while the boys have an 0-7 mark and 0-2 in conference play. The Panthers first game back from Christmas Break is January 4th at home against Norwalk.
