The Knoxville Boys Basketball Squad will play for the first time against someone else other than itself tonight. The Panthers, who usually host the Turkey Shoot are now traveling this weekend to the Montezuma Jamboree. The Panthers will play the host Braves in two quarters of basketball. Head coach Jeff Larson says while the scorers were lost to graduation he says there will be 15 players that can go in when called upon. Larson says tonight he wants to see how the players react to a “game-like” situation. The Panthers get their season officially underway Tuesday night against Albia.
