The Knoxville basketball squads get back to conference play tonight by hosting Grinnell. The girls pulled the surprise of the early L-H-C season by upending the Tigers in the opening week, but both teams have now gone in opposite directions. Since that night in December, Grinnell has lost just once while Knoxville is in a frustrating seven game losing streak. Coach Jim Utiermarkt tells KNIA/KRLS he hopes for the same kind of game as the last time around. The boys are coming off a 64-61 victory over Albia and will be facing what appears to be a rather shorthanded Tigers squad that comes in 8-3 and unbeaten in seven conference games. You can hear the play-by-play on AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA with Derek Cardwell and Mike Cunningham at six.
