With each squad working on a five-game winning streak, PCM’s basketball teams get to work on the final handful of games on their schedule tonight at home against Colfax-Mingo. The Tigerhawks were swept by the Mustangs earlier in the season, and their girls’ team has only mustered two wins all year. All of the offense for Colfax-Mingo comes primarily from one player, Nicolette Husson, who puts up about 15 points per game. The Tigerhawks as a whole have a 4:1 turnover-to-assist ratio. The Mustangs’ girls are coming off a big win over the Lady Dutch on Saturday on the road, and Coach Bret Grier says that most of their recent success can be attributed to balanced scoring from the starters and from their bench. Over on the boys’ side of things, the Mustangs were only able to beat Colfax-Mingo by four after having a 19-point halftime lead. Coach Fred Lorenson is looking for a better close to the game than what they showed in their first meeting in mid-December. If you can’t make it to the games tonight, never fear, Justin Webster will be there to call all of the varsity basketball action, starting with pregame coverage on at 5:45 p.m.
