The Kee boys basketball team completed its busiest week of the season so far with a trio of ballgames within a five-day span, but had to do so without some key components due to injury. Missing as many as three early-season starters from their line-up at certain points this past week, the Hawks opened the week with a 62-38 home loss to Postville Tuesday, December 9 before falling in back-to-back nights of competition, 66-28 at Turkey Valley Friday, December 12 and by a 71-39 count at home against Mabel-Canton, MN Saturday, December 13.

The Hawks were next slated to host South Winneshiek Tuesday, December 16 before playing at Starmont Friday, December 19 to wrap up their schedule prior to the upcoming holiday break. Kee will return to action after the holiday break with a Saturday, January 3 home game with Wapsie Valley.
