With its first action against another colored uniform in the books…the Knoxville Boys Basketball Squad now starts to work on preparing or its season opener against Albia on Tuesday. While Albia is not a conference opponent, Coach Jeff Larson knows every team the Panthers play this season will be a challenge. He says the Little Hawkeye Conference will be especially challenging. He says it is just not about showing up and expecting the opponent to roll over. Larson adds to get better his team will have to take on the challenge of playing against some of the better 2A and 3A teams in the area.
