The Knoxville Girls Basketball Squad plays in a class 4A Regional semi-final tonight against Perry. The Panthers are coming off a 48-44 win over Norwalk in the opening round and find the Bluejays who have been waiting for an opponent as they got the bye into the semis. Coach Jim Utiermarkt says Perry’s standout player, Claire Marburger is similar to Grinnell’s Deja Jackson only a little taller. He hopes his team plays good defense on her to slow her down and no one else takes over. Game time is an hour later than normal for a regional game. You can tune to AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA starting at 7:45 for the pregame and tip at eight.
