The Kee boys basketball team put up some of its highest point totals of the season in its two games this past week, but also allowed some of its highest point totals in having its recent losing streak extended to six games. The Hawks suffered a 71-52 loss at home to South Winneshiek Tuesday, December 16 before falling at Starmont Friday, December 19 by an 80-54 final result.
“We need to have a good Christmas break,” Kee boys basketball coach Pat Wagner said. “We need to get back to basics and become better fundamentally, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. We must identify our opponents’ key personnel better and we have to maintain better stances, positioning and vision on defense.”
Holding a 1-6 overall record, 1-5 in Upper Iowa Conference play heading into the holiday break, Kee will return to action after the break with a Saturday, January 3 home game with Wapsie Valley. The Hawks will then hit the road for an even busier week, playing at Waukon Monday, January 5, at West Central Tuesday, January 6 and at Central Elkader Friday, January 9.
