The Knoxville Basketball Squads travel to Oskaloosa tonight. Both Panther teams beat Osky in the last meeting in December with the girls winning convincingly 49-31 and the boys using overtime to win by 11. For the girls, the Panthers broke an eight game losing streak Saturday against Chariton. Assistant Coach Jason Carter tells KNIA/KRLS…they hope to use full court pressure to get easy baskets and not give the one-win Indians confidence. The Panthers are 6-9 on the season while Oskaloosa is just 1-13 and winless in eight conference games. The boys will try to pull the season sweep of the Indians tonight. In the first game, Knoxville won in overtime shutting out Osky 11-0 in the extra session. You can hear the play-by-play on AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA at six.
