Fans of the Knoxville Boys Basketball Squad noticed one thing immediately when The Panthers made their debut earlier this season. This is a much improved team and they will be in several games. Case in point, the Panthers have only been in one lopsided game…that being a 40 point loss to Grinnell. Coach Jeff Larson says this group is enjoying each other. He tells KNIA/KRLS Sports they just have to get to the fourth quarter with a chance to win it. Larson says the guys are competitive more this year than ever, and he says that makes everyone enjoy basketball more. Knoxville is 2-4 on the season and 1-2 in the Little Hawkeye Conference. The Panthers travel to Norwalk on January seventh when they restart the season.
