Winning your season opener is always a good thing, especially when you have a week and a half until your next game. Knoxville beat P-C-M on Friday night and does not play against until December third. While some coaches would like to have a game to break up the practices, Panthers Coach Jim Utiermarkt says they need the practice because they have not got their minimum practices in. He also as any other coach saw several thing to stress for the next nine days until the next game. He tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that free throw shooting almost gave away the game as the Panthers 11/29 from the line. He also listed turnovers, which was a problem last year and was an issue again on Friday especially in the first half. December third in the next game for the 1-0 Panthers with Albia coming in.
