The Knoxville Girls Basketball squad tries to get its first win of the season tonight when the P-C-M mustangs come to Panther Gym. Knoxville went ice cold from the field Tuesday night in their six-point loss to Albia and Coach Jim Utiermarkt says the girls need to get better at playing against a zone defense. He adds however that tonight they could see man-to-man more often than not which may help their cause. Knoxville was unable to hit from the outside or inside on Tuesday. Utiermarkt says that comes with confidence as many of the girls have never played varsity and they simply need court time. You can hear the play-by-play on AM 1320 KNIA starting at six, tipoff is scheduled for 6:15.
