PCM’s basketball teams have ridden good defense and well-executed offenses to seven-game winning streaks, and tonight, those are in jeopardy against two very talented North Polk teams. The Comets’ girls were able to beat the Mustangs 57 – 34 in mid-December in their first meet-up. North Polk dominated in every facet of the game, holding the Mustangs to just 19 rebounds and 33 percent shooting. The Comets’ boys hung in with PCM, but lost 59 – 47. Since then, North Polk has defeated a very tough Nevada team, which is the only team that has been able to beat the Mustangs this year. Coach Fred Lorenson said that the Comets are much-improved from the last time they met. Tonight’s big Heart of Iowa Conference doubleheader will be called by Justin Webster on, with pregame coverage beginning at 5:45 p.m.
