Our next moment from the Knoxville/Twin Cedars/Melcher-Dallas Sports seasons takes us to the Knoxville Girls Basketball season. The Panthers came into the final night of the South Central Conference season knowing they were out of contention to win the conference, but their opponent Chariton, with a win on that February second game could force a tie for the South Central Conference title with Eddyville-Blakesburg. The Panthers decided to play spoiler in a game that was close throughout but ended up a 46-39 Knoxville win and that gave sole possession of first place to the Rockets and denied the Chargers a conference title. Later that week, the Panthers were treated to a pizza party by the Eddyville girls as a thank you for allowing them to win the outright South Central Conference title.
