Much like the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks in the NFL, the Knoxville basketball programs are hoping for a huge turnout for tomorrow night’s big doubleheader against Dallas Center-Grimes. The Fillies and Mustangs do not have many losses on the season, and a “crowded” environment would be like putting a sixth man on the court for the Panthers. Girls’ coach, Jim Uitermarkt says that he hopes that people don’t just show up, but that they also perhaps blow the roof off of the gym. Students can get in tomorrow night for just one dollar, which also buys them a sandwich, a drink, and a raffle ticket for a chance to win an xBox One, an iPod Touch, and other prizes. Tip-off of the girls’ game is at 6:15 p.m.
