Rematch in Store for 1A District Quarterfinal

They met at the very beginning of their schedules for the first time in over 20 years, and now both Pleasantville and Melcher-Dallas’ boys’ basketball programs will do battle again tonight, this time in the second round of the Class 1A district tournament. The Trojans used good ball handling and dynamite shooting to lead them to a 74 – 52 victory over the Saints back in late November. Pleasantville got out to a 27 – 6 lead in the first quarter and didn’t stop there. Lately, however, the Trojans have been struggling; losing four of their last five contests. Coach Tom Wilkins said that simply his guys have to step it up. The Saints were able to get by Wayne last Friday and beat Southeast Warren on Saturday to give them some momentum heading into the game tonight. Kris Krug and Ed Bull will call all of the action on AM 1320 KNIA and streamed live on kniakrls.com with pregame coverage starting at 6:45 and tip-off at 7:00.
